Chiefs claim Sam Barrington, Bryan Witzmann off waivers
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs claimed linebacker Sam Barrington and offensive tackle Bryan Witzmann off waivers Sunday and made roster space for them by waiving linebacker Ramik Wilson and offensive lineman Jordan Devey.
Barrington had been with the Packers and Witzmann had been with the Cowboys.
The Chiefs were looking to upgrade the linebacker spot after Josh Mauga sustained a season-ending hip injury. Wilson was a fourth-round draft pick who started two games a year ago.
Kansas City also filled out its practice squad by signing linebackers Terrance Smith and Tyrell Adams; offensive linemen Daniel Munyer and Jarrod Pughsley; defensive backs Shak Randolph and Brock Vereen; wide receivers Frankie Hammond Jr. and Seantavius Jones; defensive tackle David King and running back Darrin Reaves.
