The Kansas City Chiefs have signed cornerback Kennard Cox and waived linebacker Chad Kilgore.
Cox has seen action in 29 games in four NFL seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks. He has 10 tackle, 0.5 sacks, two passes defensed and one fumble recovery.
Cox originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft selection (251st overall) of the Buffalo Bills in 2008, but was released before the season and added to the Green Bay Packers practice squad roster on Oct. 27, 2008.
He was claimed off the Packers practice squad by the Jaguars in December of 2008 where he spent two seasons on and off the club’s active roster. In April of 2010, Cox joined the Seattle Seahawks where he primarily served on the club’s practice squad until March 13, 2012. The Miami, Fla., native played collegiately at Pittsburgh where he appeared in 47 games, totaling 98 tackles and two interceptions.
Kilgore (6-1, 230) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders last year. He spent the 2012 training camp with the Raiders before being released prior to the regular season. The Orrick, Mo., native played in 57 games at Northwest Missouri State, recording 392 tackles (165 solo), seven sacks, five interceptions, 12 passes defensed and three forced fumbles.
