ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (KAKE) -

The Chiefs welcomed in a new face to training camp on Monday. Newly signed cornerback Morris Claiborne took the field for the first time in a Chiefs uniform.

Although he's with the team, Claiborne is suspended for the first four games of the season because he violated the NFL's substance abuse policy. 

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said they're trying to ease Claiborne into the mix and he probably won't play in KC's second preseason game. 

"He's played in this league for a few years here now. He's a good, solid player. You can't have enough of those guys, especially at that position. We'll just get him into the mix and see how he does. I've competed against him and I thought he's a good player," said Reid. "(General Manager) Brett (Veach) studied him like crazy, felt good about him, so we went with him."

"They've got a good ball club and the best offenses in the league. They added a couple pieces here in the offseason with the defense," said Claiborne. "I just feel like it's a good club and a good chance to play in the playoffs and play in the Super Bowl."
