The Chiefs signed veteran cornerback Kennard Cox on Wednesday, the club said, according to Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com.

Cox (6-0, 191) has appeared in 29 regular-season games, the bulk of which came with the Seahawks in 2010 and 2011. He also spent two seasons with Jacksonville (2008-2009). He has 20 career tackles on defense, and he’s also contributed on special teams.

Cox entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick of Buffalo in 2008. He turns 28 on Saturday.

In a related roster moved Wednesday, the Chiefs waived first-year linebacker Chad Kilgore.

    Not a bad player at all. He is definitely has 53 man roster ability, the seahawks are just the deepest in the league by a mile at that position by having 6 starting quality cbs alone (not fare). He can ball though, matter of two weeks and you’ll know who this guy is. Deserves a spot on a team. And is an great addition to any squad.

    Glad the niners didn’t snag this guy, their hurting over their for db’s, mark my words at least one db we cut will be signed by then immediately, glad it was your team.

    I really hope this is Vince Agnew’s replacement……. That guy played so bad in the first preseason game it was embarrassing! They had an entire drive with the strategy of “just throw it to Agnew’s side” or “lets run it at Agnew’s side”.

    Please let the next update be headlined “Chiefs cut Vince Agnew”… please?
