KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs signed defensive lineman Jimmy Staten to the practice squad.
The 6-3, 311-pound Staten originally entered the league in 2014 out of Middle Tennessee State as a fifth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks.
Staten spent time on Seattle’s practice squad in 2014, and then signed a reserve/future contract in January 2015. The Seahawks waived him on Aug. 17, leading to the New York Giants to claim Staten off waivers from Seattle.
He bounced from the Giants to the New England Patriots before joining the Chiefs.
Staten is the second straight former Seattle player to sign to the Chiefs practice squad, joining rookie linebacker Tyrell Adams.
Staten takes the practice squad roster spot vacated by rookie defensive end David Irving, whom the Dallas Cowboys signed to the active roster on Tuesday.
The Chiefs current 10-man practice squad consists of Staten, Adams, rookie wide receiver Da’Ron Brown, defensive tackle Hebron Fangupo, rookie offensive lineman Laurence Gibson, cornerback Jeremy Harris, rookie center Daniel Munyer, offensive lineman Jarrod Pughsley, fullback Spencer Ware and wide receiver Fred Williams.
