Chiefs Add Veteran Safety

After passing on other veteran safeties in recent weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs finally made a selection in Abram Elam.

Entering his seventh NFL season the journeyman safety has played for three NFL teams. And after signing on the dotted line over the weekend, he's probably hoping the Chiefs are his last stop for a while.

There is no question the Chiefs need help at Safety. With veterans Eric Berry, Kendrick Lewis and the recently drafted DeQuan Menzie not ready for action, KC's defense has been relying on the likes of converted corner, Travis Daniels and a host of inexperienced safeties. Thus the Chiefs who had to compete with the Tennessee Titans for the services of Elam, they sorely needed to add a veteran presence before the start of training camp next month.

"It's a great opportunity. I see a defense that's definitely very talented, a team that's basically on the rise. It was a good opportunity for myself," he said after getting his first taste Monday with his new teammates.

The veteran safety has played in 92 games, (64 starts), and of 365 tackles – 270 were of the solo variety. But it's his versatility as a solid special teams player that probably swung the door open for this chance in Kansas City. And it's one that he's excited about.

"It's a great opportunity. I feel like it's a team that's up on the rise and very competitive, a great defense. I think we're putting things together here in Kansas City."
