Chiefs dust off Kenny Smith

As the Kansas City Chiefs continue to try to remake their roster, they’ve slipped into a DeLorean and set the dial to 2003.

The Chiefs have signed defensive lineman Kenny Smith.  Yes, that Kenny Smith.  The one who hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2003, when he started nine games for the Saints.

Though the release from the team says that he played with the Saints through 2004, the NFL.com player page for Smith shows zero appearances in 2004 or 2005.  For 2006, 2007, and 2008?  Nothing.

He fills the roster spot that was created when Tank Tyler was traded to the Panthers on Monday.
