The Chiefs got a look at linebacker Tourek Williams when he played for the Chargers and now they’ll be getting a closer view.
The NFL’s transaction wire brought word on Monday that the Chiefs have signed Williams to their 90-man roster. Linebacker Victor Ochi was waived in a corresponding move.
Williams was a sixth-round pick of the Chargers in 2013 and saw action in 44 games over the last three seasons, although a broken foot kept him off the field for the entire 2015 season. He played in every game last year and had 14 tackles and a sack while seeing more time on special teams than on defense.
Ochi played two games for the Jets last year and had two tackles.
