Turley played in seven games at right tackle this season until hurting his ankle.
In other moves, Kansas City agreed to a three-year contract with tight end Michael Allan, claimed offensive tackle Adrian Jones off waivers from the New York Jets and added offensive tackle Joe Lobdell to the practice squad.
Allan, the Chiefs' seventh-round draft pick out of Whitworth College, was added to the 53-man roster. The 6-foot-6, 254-pound tight end joined the team's practice squad after he was inactive for the season opener.
Lobdell rejoins the practice squad after spending three weeks on the club's developmental squad. He also has spent time on the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad.
Jones, the Jets' fourth-round pick in 2004, played in seven games this season for New York, but was inactive the last seven. A converted tight end, Jones played in 44 games on the offensive line during his Jets career, including 16 starts - three at right tackle and 13 at left tackle - in 2005.
Jones had some legal problems last season when he was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. He was fined $20,000 by the team and was monitored by the NFL as a first-time offender of the league's substance abuse policy.
Jones, who played at Kansas, will compete under terms of his previous contract.
