Chiefs Add Free Agent Cornerback

The crowded Kansas City Chiefs defensive backfield added another new face on Thursday with the signing of CB Vince Agnew.

Agnew was a teammate of Chiefs No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher at Central Michigan and first entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins in 2011. He hung on with the Dolphins practice squad as a rookie before moving onto the Dallas Cowboys last season.

The former Chippewa made his NFL debut with the Cowboys, playing in four games without recording a tackle.

During his time at Central Michigan, Agnew appeared in 47 games and had 161 tackles, 14 passes defensed and one interception. He also was a standout on special teams with three blocked kicks.

Though he’s coming to the Chiefs later than the rest of his teammates, he spent this past week in Kansas City as part of their minicamp on a tryout basis. Agnew clearly showed enough in just a few days to earn a roster spot and a chance to turn heads in training camp.
