On the same day that Kansas City was announced as one of the host cities for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, the Chiefs also made moves of their own. They swapped players at both wide receiver and cornerback, including bringing back a cornerback with legal issues.
According to Matt Derrick, the Kansas City Chiefs waived CB Luq Barcoo and WR Matthew Sexton. Barcoo, undrafted out of San Diego State in 2020, was signed on March 24 and spend the past two seasons on the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals, and San Francisco 49ers. He recorded 10 tackles with the Jaguars in 2020. Sexton, undrafted out of Eastern Michigan Michigan, saw 60 snaps with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2021 preseason. He is expected to return to the team on IR if he passes through waivers.
The Chiefs also signed CB Chris Lammons and WR Aaron Parker. Parker, undrafted in 2020 out of Rhode Island, spent the 2020 season’ on the Dallas Cowboys squad but saw some special teams snaps with the Carolina Panthers in the 2021 regular season. He also attended the Chiefs’ minicamp on a tryout basis.
The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed cornerback Chris Lammons, among other moves, despite his felony charge relating to a February 6 incident
Chris Lammons is viewed as a surprise signing due to him being charged with a felony in a Las Vegas court following a February 6 incident involving New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara. He is due back in court on August 1 for a hearing involving his felony assault case.
This signing is very questionable since the Chiefs don’t have a need for a young corner and are not short on players for special teams. They don’t exactly have the most spotless record when it comes to bringing in players with questionable past actions. Not even 5 months ago, they signed Damon Arnette, who was released by the Raiders last November due to multiple incidents, including being accused of injuring a woman in a 2020 car crash and making death threats on camera while holding firearms. He was cut by the Chiefs shortly after being arrested in Las Vegas for assault with a deadly weapon.
In other news, former Chiefs linebacker Ben Niemann signed with the Arizona Cardinals after four seasons in Kansas City. He recorded 2.0 sacks and 167 total tackles as a member of the Chiefs.
