The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent LB Mark Simoneau (pronounced SIM-in-no). The club also added WR Jeremy Horne to the practice squad.

 

Simoneau (6-0, 245) has played in 123 games (68 starts) with New Orleans (2006-07), Philadelphia (2003-05) and Atlanta (2000-02).

The Phillipsburg, Kansas native has seen action in seven postseason contests (four starts), registering 30 tackles (20 solo) and one pass defensed. Simoneau originally entered the NFL as a third-round selection (67th overall) of Atlanta in 2000.

Simoneau finished his career at Kansas State ranked third in school history with 400 tackles and 48.0 tackles for loss. He was a USA Today honorable mention selection as a running back and linebacker at Smith Center High School in Smith Center, Kansas.

Horne (6-2, 193) has played in three games with Kansas City in 2010 after originally joining the team as a college free agent. He saw action in 36 games (20 starts) in three seasons at Massachusetts, catching 84 passes for 1,338 yards with 11 TDs. He prepped at Milford Academy in New Berlin, New York.
