The Chiefs are expected to sign linebacker Josh Mauga, according to his agent, Mike Hoffman.
The Chiefs will need to create a roster spot to sign Mauga, because they are currently carrying the maximum of 90 players on the roster.
Mauga, 27, is a 6-foot-1, 245-pound inside linebacker who logged 44 total tackles and an interceptions in 29 games with the New York Jets between 2010 and 2012.
Never miss a local story.
The Jets placed Mauga on injured reserve with a back injury before the 2013 season.
