KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed defensive back Keith Lewis to a reserve/futures contract, according to Wednesday’s NFL Transaction report.

The 6-1, 190-pound Lewis originally entered the league in 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia-Lynchburg with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He also spent time with the New York Jets and San Diego Chargers.

Lewis becomes the seventh player the Chiefs have signed to a reserve/future deal since the end of the 2015 regular season.

The previous six players signed on Jan. 6 are wide receiver Kenny Cook, defensive end Dominique Davis, linebacker Cameron Gordon, defensive back Jordan Kovacs, fullback Trey Millard and defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu.

The Chiefs are allowed to sign free agents to a reserve/future contract as long as that player was not on the active roster when the season ended.

Teams sign players to reserve/future deals with a view to the upcoming season when the league’s calendar year begins, which for 2016 is March 9.
