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.

The Jets placed Mauga on injured reserve with a back injury before the 2013 season.
