Second 2012 4th Round Pick Claimed By Chiefs


The Kansas City Chiefs have been a busy team the day after they submitted their initial 53-man roster to the NFL. One of the players they were able to claim on waivers, James-Michael Johnson, was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012.

GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid added another player from that round off waivers on Sunday in DT Jaye Howard from the Seattle Seahawks. Howard was selected just six spots ahead of Johnson.

In his one season with the Seahawks, Howard managed to to play in just two games without recording a tackle. Howard played in three games this preseason, putting up four tackles and failing to earn a second season in Seattle.

The former Florida Gator will join a defensive line that features (for now) Tyson Jackson, Dontari Poe, Mike DeVito, Allen Bailey, Jerrell Powe and Anthony Toribio. Reports have Powe being the odd man out with this move, but the team has yet to make it official.
