The Chiefs waived linebacker Khaseem Greene on Tuesday after he was indicted on weapons charges in New Jersey.
Greene, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 2013 who was signed to a reserve-futures contract in January.
He was released after NJ.com reported that Greene was indicted in connection with a December shooting outside of a nightclub in Elizabeth, N.J.
According to court records, Greene was shown on surveillance video handing a gun to a Jason C. Sanders, a co-defendant, who discharged the weapon into a crowd.
Both men were charged with unlawful possession of a weapon. Greene was charged Jan. 4, according to NJ.com, about three weeks before he signed with the Chiefs.
Greene has recorded 45 tackles and an interception in his four-year career.
