Chiefs work out Smith and Sands

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

The Chiefs looked at two veteran defensive tackles Tuesday.

The team worked out Shaun Smith and Terdell Sands. According to a source close to the situation, the Chiefs may not be close to making a decision to bring in a defensive tackle and they were simply doing some bye-week looking.

Smith is a talented, but troubled player who had been shipped out of both Cleveland and Detroit this season. Sands has been cut by Oakland and New England in recent months. Sands was originally a seventh-round draft pick of the Chiefs in 2001.
