According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the deal will be worth up to $1.5 million. Claiborne is currently suspended for four games for violating the league’s PED policy.
The 29-year-old cornerback is a former first-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys. He has also spent time with the New York Jets. In his career, Claiborne has seven interceptions and 49 passes defended.
Kansas City’s defense struggled last season and Claiborne will give them depth at the corner position. Currently, Kendall Fuller and Bashaud Breeland are expected to start.
