Claimed off waivers by Kansas City
CBKansas City Chiefs
August 17, 2016
The Chiefs have claimed Vereen off waivers, ESPN's Field Yates reports.
In a bizarre series of events, Vereen initially retired from the NFL on Monday while he was a Patriot. Then, on Tuesday, he was reinstated from New England's reserve/retirement list only to be released from the team shortly thereafter, and was subsequently thrown into the league's waiver system. Now, on Wednesday, Vereen is officially a member of the Chiefs as Kansas City had been awarded the defensive back from said waiver system, although it's unknown how many teams actually placed a claim for him. He isn't a lock to crack the Chiefs' active roster, but if he can impress in limited action, Vereen could slide in as a depth option in the Chiefs' talented secondary sans Sean Smith.
