Chiefs add to CB stash with Miami's Owens

3/21/2014

The Kansas City Chiefs signed veteran cornerback Chris Owens, who played five seasons in the NFL for the Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins. Owens, 27, played his first four seasons with Atlanta and split last season between Cleveland and Miami.

The Chiefs have veteran Sean Smith and Brandon Flowers as starters at cornerback. Marcus Cooper spent most of his rookie season last year as the third cornerback.

At 5-9 and 180 pounds, Owens doesn't have the size the Chiefs prefer in their cornerbacks. Smith is 6-3 and Cooper 6-2. Both players were acquired since general manager John Dorsey was hired in January 2013.
