The Kansas City Chiefs have announced the acquisition of cornerback Mike Richardson and linebacker David Herron.
Richardson worked out for the Chiefs on Tuesday.
Both players have a connection to Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli, the former V.P. of player personnel in New England. Richardson spent ten games in 2008 with the Patriots; Herron spent one week in New England in 2007.
Yesterday, the Chiefs traded quarterback Tyler Thigpen to the Dolphins, signed tight end Leonard Pope, and worked out tackle Mark Tauscher.
