The Green Bay Packers have claimed CB Tremon Smith off of waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Tuesday.

(tray-mon) Smith, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound second-year player out of Central Arkansas, was originally selected by the Chiefs in the sixth round (No. 196 overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he played cornerback, appearing in 14 games with one start during the regular season and playing in both postseason contests. During the regular season, Smith returned 33 kicks for 886 yards (26.8 avg.), including a career-long 97-yard return at New England in Week 6. His 26.8-yard average per kickoff return ranked No. 4 in the NFL in 2018 among qualifiers. This past training camp he moved to running back before being moved back to defense. Smith appeared in one game for the Chiefs this season. He will wear No. 27 for the Packers.
