The Chiefs announced Wednesday that they have re-signed free agent cornerback Travis Daniels.

Daniels returns for a fourth season with Kansas City and he’ll likely remain in the fourth cornerback role he’s played for most of his time with the team. Brandon Flowers and Stanford Routt will be the starters with Javier Arenas likely returning in the nickel role. Daniels has played 41 games with the Chiefs and intercepted three passes while also playing on special teams.

This will be the fourth year that Daniels has spent as a member of a defense coached by Romeo Crennel. He first played for the Chiefs head coach in Cleveland in 2008 and followed Crennel Crennel followed him to Kansas City in 2010. His experience with the scheme likely helped keep him with the team, although its not like there were a ton of teams beating down his door in free agency.
