The Chiefs signed free agent No. 3 of the week on Friday when they reached a deal with defensive lineman Vance Walker, who played last season with Oakland.
It’s a three-year deal for a maximum $13 million.
The 6-2, 304-pound Walker will be 27 in April and he’s going into his sixth NFL season. Last year, he started 15 games in his first and only season with the Raiders, picking up 40 total tackles and three sacks. Against the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in October, Walker had five tackles and a sack.
Walker entered the league out of Georgia Tech in 2009 as a seventh-round selection by Atlanta in the NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Falcons, mostly in a backup situation.
Overall, the Cincinnati native has played in 73 games, with 26 starts, producing 119 total tackles, eight sacks and two forced fumbles. He’s played both defensive tackle and defensive end.
The Chiefs also announced on Friday that they had re-signed OLB Frank Zombo.
