The veteran cornerback is signing a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs worth up to $3 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source.
Yahoo! Sports first reported the development.
Claiborne will miss the first four games of the 2019 season after being suspended for violating the substance abuse policy. According to Rapoport, the Chiefs were aware of the discipline when they began negotiating with the eighth-year defensive back. Claiborne's deal includes a max of $1.5 million in incentives but does not account for what he'll be docked by the suspension.
Claiborne has been a starter virtually his entire career but will likely have to win a job in Kansas City, which listed Kendall Fuller and Bashaud Breeland on its first team in the team's unofficial depth chart from this week.
