Shortly after the Kansas City Chiefs disposed of the Chicago Bears in an impressive 23-7 beating, the team made a move to acquire more depth in the secondary.
The Chiefs acquired cornerback Kenneth Acker from the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a 2018 seventh-round draft pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Acker, a sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, spent his entire rookie season on IR with a left foot stress fracture before starting 13 games for the 49ers last season. He recorded 65 combined tackles and three interceptions during his first actual season. Acker was rated as the 70th best cornerback in the league by Pro Football Focus, who gave him a 63.8 overall grade (out of 100) and a 59.7 coverage grade.
