West, 27, spent the past three seasons with the Chiefs, accumulating 1,551 yards from scrimmage and 12 total touchdowns. However, he had fallen behind Kareem Hunt, Spencer Ware and Damien Williams on the depth chart at running back.
West's breakout came in 2015, when he rushed for 634 yards and four touchdowns, with former starter Jamaal Charles out of action. But in 2016 he fell back down the depth chart, and last year he saw a diminished workload, rushing just 18 times for 72 yards and two scores, as Hunt emerged as the team's feature back.
He did add 27 catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns in the passing game, however.
A concussion cost West most of training camp this summer, per Kevin Patra of NFL.com.
For a team seeking a solid veteran option who can make plays in both the running and passing games, West should hold appeal.
