According to Aaron Wilson, the Kansas City Chiefs have singed yet another veteran defensive back.
From Wilson, via Twitter:
Veteran cornerback Vince Agnew has been signed to a one-year contract by the Kansas City Chiefs following a successful minicamp tryout

Agnew spent a few games last season with the Dallas Cowboys. He played only 12 snaps, splitting “time” between CB and strong safety.
He played his college ball at Central Michigan. Agnew is 25 and saw his first ever regular season NFL action last year.
Agnew could end up just being a camp body but he is young and must have done something to impress the Chiefs’ coaches during his tryout at minicamp. The Chiefs are always talking about how they want to increase competition as much as possible. Having a few longshots like Agnew around when the team goes to camp could be good for everyone. The bottom of the roster guys are desperate and fighting for just a handful of roster spots. The theory is that at the very least, some of these guys will push the veterans on the team to work harder. In some cases, however, teams will find a diamond in the rough that will end up making the team.
