The Kansas City Chiefs have added a safety, coming to terms with free agent Kyle McCarthy. He is familiar with the AFC West, spending his first two seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos after joining them as an undrafted free agent
McCarthy played in just four games for the Broncos this season after making it to final cuts in training camp. He had two separate stints on the Denver practice squad before finally seeing game action in Week 13 and picking up three tackles the rest of the way. The Broncos cut him three days after they lost to the Chiefs the final game of the season.
The safety announced the news on his Twitter feed.
I am excited to announce that I have agreed to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. I can’t wait to get started! #NFL #Chiefs
Other than the recovering Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis, there aren’t many sure things at safety for Kansas City right now. He had a tough time sticking in Denver, but he’s got a chance to get in here early and impress leading up to training camp and maybe grab onto one of the final roster spots.
