The Chiefs continue to add depth to their secondary, recently signing cornerback Shaquille Richardson to a one-year deal.
Richardson, 22, was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers after a senior season at Arizona in which he recorded 55 tackles, three interceptions and four pass breakups.
Richardson did not make the Steelers' 53-man roster out of training camp, but was signed to the practice squad. He eventually reached an injury settlement with the Steelers in October and was released.
