KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs have signed wide receiver Jason Avant, defensive back Kelcie McCray and tight end Richard Gordon as they continue a busy first week of free agency.

The Chiefs also signed long snapper James Winchester to a two-year deal Friday.

Avant joined the Chiefs in the middle of last season, giving them a veteran presence on a young wide receiver corps. McCray and Gordon are considered solid depth at their positions.

The signings came one day after the Chiefs traded a fifth-round draft pick to New Orleans for offensive guard Ben Grubbs and signed offensive lineman Paul Fanaika, a former Cardinals starter.

Kansas City also signed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and safety Tyvon Branch this week, and released veteran wide receiver Dwayne Bowe in a cost-saving move.
