Knile Davis has come full circle.

Davis, the running back who has gone from the Chiefs to the Packers to the Jets to the waiver wire in the last month, re-signed with the Chiefs today.

The Chiefs traded Davis to the Packers at a time when it looked like Kansas City had a glut of running backs. But since then Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware have suffered injuries, leaving the Chiefs with little depth at the position. The return of Davis should improve that depth.

Davis was only available because of the odd journey he’s been on since the Chiefs traded him last month: The Packers waived him after two ineffective games. Then the Jets claimed him on waivers only to waive him the next day.

The Chiefs have also promoted defensive end David King from the practice squad to the active roster, placed guard Parker Ehinger on injured reserve and waived guard Jordan Devey.
