KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs reshuffled their practice squad Tuesday, retaining linebacker Ramik Wilson and offensive lineman Jordan Devey, both of who officially cleared waivers Monday.

The team also added Terrance Mitchell and Julian Wilson to the practice squad.

The Chiefs cleared room on the practice squad by releasing linebacker Tyrell Adams, offensive linemen Daniel Munyer and defensive backs Shak Randolph and Brock Vereen.

Michell, a 24-year-old third-year veteran, has spent time with Chicago, Dallas and Houston. He spent training camp and the preseason with Texans, picking up 14 tackles and an interception in four preseason games.

He has 13 tackles, a sack and an interception in eight career regular-season games. The Cowboys drafted Mitchell in the seventh round of the 2014 draft out of Oregon.

Wilson is a second-year undrafted free agent from Oklahoma. He spent the 2015 season with Baltimore on injured reserve after breaking his leg during the team’s rookie minicamp.

Wilson was one of the Ravens’ most sought-after rookie free agents and had an offer from several teams including the Chiefs, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The Chiefs waived Wilson and Devey after claiming on waivers linebacker Sam Barrington from Green Bay and offensive tackle Bryan Witzmann from Dallas.

The team did not necessarily think Wilson clear through waivers, so his return is a boost to the team’s inside linebacker corps. Wilson provides both depth and NFL experience.

Devey performed well in training camp and the preseason, and appeared to be in competition with Jarrod Pughsley for the final offensive line spot. Devey initially won the role, before the acquisition of Witzmann on waivers. Devey joins Pughsley on the practice squad.
