Lions placed CB Chris Owens on injured reserve, ending his season.

Owens saw 500 snaps as the Chiefs' slot corner last season, but was never in the mix for nickel duties in Detroit. The 28-year-old veteran should eventually be cut loose with an injury settlement.

Lions signed CB Chris Owens, formerly of the Chiefs.

Owens played 500 snaps as the Chiefs' slot corner last season, grading out as PFF's No. 89 cover corner out of 108 qualifiers. In Detroit, he'll compete for a deep-reserve spot and try and carve out a role on special teams.

Chiefs signed CB Chris Owens.

Owens appeared in just one game last year due to injuries and is strictly a depth signing. He has experience in the slot and will give the Chiefs a veteran backup. Owens, 27, has been on three different teams over the last two seasons.

Free agent CB Chris Owens visited the Steelers.

With all the top corners off the market, Owens is making the rounds as an experienced backup. He visited Tampa earlier this week.

Free agent CB Chris Owens will visit the Bucs.

The Falcons' former slot corner was released mid-season by the Browns, finishing out the year with the Dolphins. He'd be a depth signing for a Bucs team loading up on veterans.
Tue, Mar 18, 2014 09:11:00 PM

Dolphins claimed CB Chris Owens off waivers from the Browns.

The Browns cut Owens from injured reserve after he recovered from an in-season knee injury. He's best suited to man the slot but will purely be depth for the Dolphins. CB Justin Rogers was waived to make room for Owens in Miami.

Browns released CB Chris Owens and WR Armanti Edwards from injured reserve.

A knee injury ended Owens' season earlier this month. The Falcons' former slot corner, Owens appeared in 12 games with Cleveland, making two starts. A colossal bust as a return man, Edwards is likely near the end of his NFL career.

Browns placed CB Chris Owens on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

CB Julian Posey has been promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move. A reserve cornerback, Owens ends 2013 with 545 defensive snaps and 40 tackles to his name. The Falcons' former (ineffective) nickel back, Owens was playing on a one-year deal. Owens is still only 27, but is going to have trouble finding a new home next season, particularly if his injury is serious.
Tue, Dec 3, 2013 04:34:00 PM

The Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports Chris Owens has the "early edge" on Buster Skrine for the Browns' right cornerback job.

Owens has received the most first-team reps opposite LCB Joe Haden since spring practices, but he's predominantly been a nickel corner since entering the league. Rookie Leon McFadden is no longer considered a candidate to start due to multiple missed practices with a groin pull. The true competition begins tonight when the Browns host the Rams in their preseason opener.
Thu, Aug 8, 2013 05:50:00 PM

The Akron Beacon-Journal reports that CB Chris Owens is a candidate for the starting job opposite Joe Haden.

Owens has been playing with the first-team defense over the last three weeks and is "practicing like a man determined to take the next step in his career." A nickel corner with the Falcons last year, Owens could be asked to start on the outside if Leon McFadden struggles in training camp.

Browns signed CB Chris Owens, formerly of the Falcons.

New Cleveland coach Rob Chudzinski knows Owens from the NFC South, but we're skeptical the 26-year-old will help the Browns. An oft-abused (and benched) slot corner in Atlanta, Owens lost his nickel back job to Robert McClain last year. Mostly a dime back, Owens managed 22 tackles and a forced fumble.
Fri, Mar 22, 2013 01:28:00 PM

Falcons CB Chris Owens was removed from Saturday's game with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but it's probably safe to rule him out for the rest of the game. Owens will be replaced by a combination of Robert McClain and Dominique Franks.
Sat, Dec 22, 2012 10:54:00 PM

Falcons CB Chris Owens (concussion) has been medically cleared.

Owens sustained a concussion during Week 2. His nickelback spot was filled by both Dominique Franks and Robert McClain.
Tue, Oct 2, 2012 09:28:00 AM

Coach Mike Smith confirmed CB Chris Owens is "in the concussion protocol" this week.

Atlanta's nickel back will have to pass a battery of tests to play this week. Smith suggested that "feisty" CB Robert McClain may have earned a bigger role regardless of Owens' status. "Every time he goes on the field, he makes something happen," said Smith.
