It’s been a strange week for safety Brock Vereen.
Placed on the reserve-retired list on Monday by the Patriots and then released from the reserve-retired list on Tuesday, the Chiefs claimed Vereen on waivers on Wednesday.
A fourth-round pick of the Bears in 2014, Vereen has spent time with the Vikings as well after being waived a year ago by Chicago. He appeared in all 16 games as a rookie with four starts and three games with the Bears in 2015.
Last week, Vereen played in New England’s preseason opener against the Saints.
