Free-agent cornerback Morris Claiborne, who received a four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, has reportedly reached an agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
The 29-year-old LSU product tallied 57 total tackles, 14 passes defended and two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, in 15 appearances for the Jets in 2018.
His 49 passes defended since his rookie season are tied for 55th over that span, per Pro Football Reference.
Claiborne should become an immediate candidate for playing time in nickel and dime packages after his suspension ends. He could even push for a starting job with a strong start to his K.C. tenure at an unsettled position for the Chiefs.
Bashaud Breeland, Kendall Fuller, Charvarius Ward and D'Montre Wade are among the corners who've been fighting for superiority on the depth chart during training camp.
The Chiefs open the preseason Saturday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. It's unclear whether Claiborne will be available for that contest.
