2012 Free Agency: Chiefs Sign Cornerback Jacques Reeves, Per Pro Football Talk

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the Kansas City Chiefs added another free agent cornerback to the offseason roster on Friday by signing Jacques Reeves, who hasn't played in an NFL game since 2009. This move comes less than a week after the team signed cornerback Stanford Routt after he was cut from the Oakland Raiders.

Reeves, a seventh-round pick from the 2004 NFL draft, played four seasons with the Dallas Cowboys before being picked up by the Texans in 2008 as a free agent. He played all 16 games for Houston in 2008 and 12 games of the 2009 season before breaking his leg, ending his year. Reeves was cut after the 2010 preseason by the Texans and wasn't picked up by any team.

In his seven-year career, Reeves has made 189 tackles, had 45 passes defensed and picked off six passes, running one back for a defensive touchdown. While it's not 100 percent certain that the Chiefs will not be able to retain free agent cornerback Brandon Carr, who is one of the top defensive backs potentially entering free agency, all signs are pointing to Carr leaving Kansas City.
