Chiefs sign WR Deon Anthony, CB Justin Rogers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs on Thursday signed wide receiver Deon Anthony and cornerback Justin Rogers, and waived defensive lineman Risean Broussard.

Rogers, 26, originally entered the league in 2011 out of Richmond as a seventh-round pick of the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills released Rogers, who measures 5-foot-11, 181 pounds, in November 2013. He spent the rest of the season with the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins.

For his career, Rogers has appeared in 43 games with seven starts, recording 64 tackles (52 solo) and three interceptions.

Anthony, who measures 6-0, 210 pounds, played quarterback at Troy last season. He will play wide receiver in the NFL and possess 4.44 40-yard dash speed.

The signings of Rogers and Anthony provides depth when considering the current injuries on the Chiefs roster.

Cornerbacks DeMarcus and David Van Dyke are dealing with hamstring injuries, while wide receivers Kyle Williams (knee) and A.J. Jenkins (hamstring) have missed recent organized team activities (OTAs) workouts.

Meanwhile, Broussard suffered a knee injury on the first day of a three-day rookie minicamp before missing the final two days and the past six OTAs.

Broussard originally signed a reserve/future deal with the Chiefs on Jan. 29.

With Thursday’s transactions, the Chiefs return to maximum of 90 players on the offseason roster.
