KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs made one last move before the end of the trade deadline.
This move also saves the Chiefs around $1.5 million in cap space.
The fourth-year cornerback has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.
The former 2019 sixth-round pick grabbed two interceptions, and had an 89.8 passer rating allowed and 64.4% completion percentage allowed when thrown at him in his four years in Kansas City.
This season, Fenton allowed an 80% completion percentage and 125 passer rating so far this season along with 20 completions, 270 yards and a touchdown.
The Falcons have had injuries to several of their cornerbacks, which made getting an experienced secondary player a priority.
The Chiefs have rookie corners Jaylen Watson and Joshua Williams who have stepped up and will be depended on along with starter L’Jarius Sneed.
2022 first-round pick Trent McDuffie has also been reactivated from injured reserve after suffering from a hamstring injury in the Chiefs’ Week 1 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
He is expected to start alongside Sneed.
