ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ryan Harris and linebacker Josh Mauga while waiving linebacker DeRon Furr on Thursday before their first full-squad practice of training camp.

Of course, the big news of the day is the arrival of Jamaal Charles. The Pro Bowl running back was expected at practice after agreeing to terms on a two-year contract extension that will result in $18 million in additional money and keep him with the Chiefs through the 2017 season.

Outside linebacker Justin Houston is also expected at camp after skipping the entire offseason as he angles for a new deal. He’s entering the final year of his rookie contract.

The Chiefs have also placed fullback James Baker on the reserve/did not report list.
