The former first-round draft pick – selected 28th overall by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2017 NFL Draft – spent the first two years of his career in Dallas before being waived at the beginning of the 2019 season. He was then picked up by the Miami Dolphins where he started in five games and recorded five sacks last year. Charlton was waived by the Dolphins on Thursday and cleared waivers Friday, making him available for the Chiefs to grab.
Here’s a look at some of Charlton’s numbers, per PFF Chiefs:
