Former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jay Ratliff visited the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday, according to a league source.

The four-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman was released by the Cowboys two weeks ago with the team citing a failed physical.

Ratliff was eligible to be activated from the reserve-physically unable to perform list, but hasn't played in a game since last November.

The Cowboys and Ratliff clashed about the extent of his injuries, which included a sports hernia that required surgery.

There was also a strained hamstring for the 32-year-old.

Last season, Ratliff reportedly had a heated exchange with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Ratliff was arrested on a driving while intoxicated charge in January.

Ratliff was playing under a five-year, $40 million contract extension with his release causing $6.9 million in dead money for 2014.

Now, the Chiefs and presumably other NFL teams are evaluating Ratliff.
