Chiefs LB Reshard Cliett Reverts To I.R. After Clearing Waivers

The Kansas City Chiefs officially placed LB Reshard Cliett on injured reserve after passing through waivers unclaimed on Tuesday.

Cliett, 25, was taken with the No. 211 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL draft by the Texans. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2,370,484 contract when the Texans elected to waive him last year as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Cliett bounced around a bit, playing for the Broncos, Jets and Cardinals before signing a future/reserve contract with the Titans this past January. Unfortunately, Tennessee cut him loose back in May and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Chiefs.

Kansas City waived him with an injury designation on Monday.

During his college career at South Florida, Cliett recorded 134 tackles, seven sacks, two fumble recoveries and seven pass defenses over the course of four seasons
