CHICAGO (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have acquired cornerback Kenneth Acker from the San Francisco 49ers for an undisclosed draft pick.
A sixth-round selection by the 49ers in 2014, Acker missed his rookie season because of a foot injury. But he played in 15 games last season and had three interceptions.
The Niners made several other roster moves after the deal was announced on Saturday. The team released receivers Jerome Simpson and DiAndre Campbell; running back Kendall Gaskins; defensive lineman Darren Lake; kicker John Lunsford; linebacker Wynton McManis; offensive linemen Blake Muir and Ian Silberman; and cornerback Cleveland Wallace.
The team also placed receiver Eric Rogers on injured reserve.
