Fleming, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2012. However, he lasted just over a year in Arizona before he was waived and later claimed by the Jaguars.

Fleming had a brief stint with the Ravens in 2014 before being signed off their practice squad by the Chiefs. Kansas City re-signed him to a contract this past March.

In 2015, Fleming appeared in all 16 games and totaled 21 tackles, a fumble recovery and five pass defenses.

Johnson, 27, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State back in 2011. He spent four years in Seattle before signing a two-year, $2.5 million with the Redskins last year.

However, Washington elected to cut him loose in a move that freed up $1,068,750 in available cap space. The Chiefs signed him to a contract close to a month ago.

In 2015, Johnson appeared in 14 games and recorded 27 tackles. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 195 total snaps last year.

Murray, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,402,424 rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season.

Murray has yet to appear in an NFL game.
