Chiefs Ink Veteran CB David Amerson to One-Year Deal

The Chiefs ongoing efforts to improve their cornerback position continued on Friday, as they signed five-year veteran David Amerson, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Amerson signed a one-year deal with a $2.25 million base salary and escalating incentives, a source told The Star. The deal could be worth up to $6 million, according to NFL Network.

Amerson, 26, is a five-year pro who spent the last three seasons with the Oakland Raiders. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder only played in six games last season, recording 18 tackles and a pass deflection before landing on injured reserve with a foot injury, but he was better the previous two seasons, when he averaged 61 tackles, 21 pass deflections and three interceptions.

The Raiders released Amerson earlier this month before his $5.5 million salary for 2018 would be fully guaranteed. Amerson had also drawn interest from the San Francisco 49ers, according to The Sacramento Bee.
