• Chiefs claim DE Square from Eagles

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Sep 1, 2014
    Square played 10 games for the Eagles as a rookie and made four tackles. Square didn’t join the Eagles until Reid was already in Kansas City, so the Chiefs’ decision to claim him off of waivers wasn’t based on insider information. The Kansas City Chiefs corrected an imbalance of sorts on their roster when they claimed a defensive lineman, Damion Square , off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles and released a tight end, Richard Gordon Before adding Square, the Chiefs had only five defensive linemen. His addition gives them six defensive linemen and Square will likely work to earn snaps at end in the coming days. When you see a player move from the Eagles to the Chiefs, the impulse is to say that Chiefs coach Andy Reid made the move because of some knowledge he gleaned while he was still in Philadelphia. The Chiefs were awarded seven players off waivers at this time last year and four are still with the team: cornerbacks Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker , linebacker James-Michael Johnson and defensive lineman Jaye Howard Before releasing Gordon, they had four tight ends.
