Ramik Wilson’s brief tenure as a free agent didn’t last long.

Only two days after the Chiefs released him to make room for former Green Bay inside linebacker Sam Barrington, the Chiefs added Wilson — a fourth-round pick in 2015 — to their practice squad on Tuesday, along with cornerback Julian Wilson, guard Jordan Devey and cornerback Terrance Mitchell.

To make room for them, the Chiefs released center Daniel Munyer, safety Shak Randolph, safety Brock Vereen and inside linebacker Tyrell Adams.

Ramik Wilson, 24, recorded 20 tackles in 10 games, including two starts, as a rookie. The 6-foot-2, 237-pound Wilson also started the first preseason game this year at inside linebacker next to Derrick Johnson, but ultimately surrendered the job to Justin March-Lillard.

Julian Wilson, 24, was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted rookie last season. He broke his leg in minicamp and missed the entire season. A former Oklahoma Sooner, he is a big corner, at 6 feet 2 and 205 pounds, who ran a 4.47 40-yard dash at his pro day after starting for his final two years in college.

Devey, 28, is listed at 6 feet 6 and 320 pounds. He earned a ton of second-team reps with the Chiefs throughout training camp at guard and center, but was released on Sunday to make room for former Dallas swing tackle Bryan Witzmann, who was claimed off waivers. A third-year pro, Devey has played in 22 games, with 13 starts, across his career with San Francisco and New England.

Mitchell, 24, is listed at 5 feet 11 and 190 pounds. He was taken in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft by Dallas. He’s recorded 13 tackles the last two seasons, along with three pass deflections and a sack.
