The Kansas City Chiefs have rounded out their 90-man offseason roster with a pair of free-agent signings. First, they added former Notre Dame WR Chris Finke and now they’ve added a former AFC West foe.

According to reports from both ESPN and NFL Network, the Chiefs are signing veteran defensive back Will Parks, formerly of the Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles. Parks is a former sixth-round pick by the Broncos in 2016 who has made a nice career for himself as a reserve.

Over fives seasons, he appeared in 66 career games and started 15 for the Broncos. Recording 149 total tackles, two sacks, seven tackles for loss, four interceptions, 13 passes defended, two fumble recovers and one forced fumble. He played a part of the 2020 season with the Eagles but was waived and claimed by his former team.

The Chiefs tend to like to bring in veteran defensive back depth during the course of the offseason program. Last season they brought in Tedric Thompson and Adrian Colbert as Juan Thornhill was recovering from his prior ACL injury. While Parks is probably a long shot to make the 53-man roster, it pays to have veteran depth available in the event an injury were to happen during the course of offseason training.

This is the 90th player for Kansas City, meaning that barring any releases their 90-man offseason roster is complete.
