Even though free agency hasn’t started, you cannot tell if you’re watching the transaction wire of the Kansas City Chiefs who have already signed three defensive backs this offseason as they look to add bodies for camp, possible special teams players and round out a position marred by injuries last season.
Jacques Reeves is an NFL veteran who has seen significant action on the field for the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys and now will hope to do the same for the Chiefs. From the press release:
Reeves (5-11, 188) has seen action in 88 games (35 starts) with 164 tackles (146 solo), six interceptions returned for 145 yards, 45 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He has 25 career special teams tackles and has returned 13 kickoffs for 199 yards (15.3 avg.).
Reeves played in 28 games (21 starts) during his two seasons with Houston, totaling 77 tackles (69 solo) with five interceptions returned for 127 yards, including one TD, 26 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. In 2008, he started all 16 games and recorded 49 tackles (46 solo) with a career-best four interceptions returned for 108 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown, 19 passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.’
Reeves has been out of football for the last two seasons.
