Orchard was waived by the Chiefs on Tuesday.
Orchard signed a contract with the Chiefs on Oct. 10 and appeared in three games, totaling three tackles and one pass defense. The 25-year-old linebacker spent the first three years of his career in Cleveland, where he recorded 40 tackles and five sacks.
Orchard will add needed depth at outside linebacker with both Justin Houston (hamstring) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle) nursing injuries. Neither player is a safe bet to suit up Sunday against the Patriots, so Orchard and fellow newcomer Frank Zombo could be pressed into action right away for Kansas City.
Orchard was released by the Browns in early September, as part of the team's final roster cuts. The Bills hope the former second-round draft pick will bolster their defensive line as a pass rusher, a role he's been familiar with throughout his career. The 25-year-old defensive end has five sacks in 34 games.
