The Kansas City Chiefs have signed Ja’Gared Davis to the practice squad, two days after the linebacker was released from the New England Patriots’ practice squad, according to the NFL transaction wire.
Davis, a 6-foot, 238-pound special-teamer by trade, was released by New England to make room for the addition of defensive tackle Casey Walker from the 53-man roster on Saturday.
The undrafted Southern Methodist product first joined the Patriots off waivers from the Houston Texans on Aug. 28, 2013. As a rookie, the former Mustang went on to play in one regular-season game and two playoff games for New England, spending most of the season on the practice squad.
Davis appeared in three games and notched one tackle with the Patriots this season, joining the active roster after second-year receiver Kenbrell Thompkins was waived on Oct. 4.
