Purcell inked a reserve/future contract Tuesday with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Purcell signed with the Chiefs' practice squad in late November and will join Kansas City for its offseason program. He'll attempt to latch onto the 53-man roster as a reserve defensive lineman in 2018.
The Rams claimed Purcell off waivers Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Purcell spent his first three seasons in the league with the 49ers after joining the team as an undrafted free agent. During the 2016 campaign, Purcell played in 15 games (five starts), tallying 26 tackles and a forced fumble. After being waived by the 49ers earlier in the week, Purcell will now join the Rams and aim to win a roster spot as a backup along the defensive line.
The 49ers released Purcell on Tuesday.
After playing in just 10 games during his first two seasons with the 49ers, Purcell participated in 15 contests during the 2016 campaign. He tallied 26 tackles and a forced fumble on the year. The Wyoming product was tendered to a one-year contract with the team in March, but it appears the 49ers have decided to go in a different direction.
