Carr has started 48 straight games after being drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Grand Valley State. The 24-year-old racked up 57 tackles with an interception last season and has 192 tackles and four picks in his career.

Richardson, a third-year pro, started all 16 games for Kansas City last season after the team made him a sixth-round pick in 2008. The Clemson graduate has appeared in 32 games with the Chiefs, starting 17.

Gilberry started two games for the team last season and appeared in all 16 games as a role player along the Chiefs' defensive line. The 6-foot-2, 268-pound Gilberry signed with Kansas City an undrafted free agent out of Alabama in 2008.

The Star reports that running backs Jackie Battle and Tim Castille and offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan were not tendered by the Chiefs, according to their agents, making them unrestricted free agents.

The team also reportedly signed Cory Greenwood to a one-year contract. Greenwood excelled during his rookie campaign as a special-teams contributor and showed promise as a linebacker.
