The Kansas City Chiefs added depth at safety Monday when they signed free agent Husain Abdullah.
While he sat out last season, Abdullah spent the previous four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings where he appeared in 54 games, including 24 starts. All of those starts came in his final two seasons with the Vikings.
Despite making those starts, he walked away from the game last year (along with his brother who played for the Arizona Cardinals) to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.
Abdullah was signed by Minnesota as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State in 2008. It’s the same year the Chiefs selected six players that are no longer in the NFL. Maybe we can consider this a boost to their 2008 class!
With little returning talent at safety outside of Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis, Abdullah has a good chance to make the roster in training camp.
