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.
