Chris Chambers didn’t stay out of work for long.
In a minor upset, Chambers was claimed by the Chiefs Tuesday off waivers, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Chambers is due roughly $2.4 million for the second half of this season, and many folks thought that no one would pay that kind of money for a declining receiver. (It’s not like the Chargers couldn’t use a consistent wideout.)
Of course, there is no rule that the Chiefs have to keep Chambers for long. They can get an up close look at him for a while before deciding how to use him.
Kansas City’s wide receiver group is thin after Dwayne Bowe, with Mark Bradley, Bobby Wade, and Bobby Engram all fighting for snaps.
