Chiefs announce roster moves

Williams spent two seasons in arena football, while Byrne entered the league in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out Wisconsin with the New Orleans Saints.

Byrne spent the 2012 season with the Houston Texans, and then split time with the Texans and San Diego Chargers before Wednesday’s signing with the Chiefs.
