He had 490 yards rush­ing and 433 yards re­ceiv­ing on 54 catches last sea­son and scored 10 touch­downs while split­ting time with Ryan Mathews.

CHIEFS: Kansas City signed free agent quar­ter­back Brady Quinn and veteran right tackle Eric Win­ston, who was in the fourth year of a $30 mil­lion, five-year deal when he was cut by Hous­ton to save salary cap space. Win­ston helped the Tex­ans be­come the NFL’S sec­ond-lead­ing rush­ing team.

BEN­GALS: Cincin­nati signed free agent cor­ner­back Ja­son Allen from Hous­ton and agreed to a four-year deal with safety Reg­gie Nel­son, who was one of their un­re­stricted free agents.
