The Kansas City Chiefs finally found their veteran insurance at safety by coming to terms with free agent safety Abram Elam on Monday.
After missing out on Yeremiah Bell, who chose to sign with the New York Jets, the Chiefs add much needed experience to their secondary. Elam started all 16 games last season with the Dallas Cowboys and has appeared in every game over the last four seasons.
With starters Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis both coming off surgery, Elam will allow both to make sure they are 100 percent before getting back on the field. Veteran cornerback Travis Daniels has been standing in with the first team defense, with several players lining up next to him, including undrafted free agent Terrance Parks.
For Romeo Crennel to be able to add someone with as much experience as Elam this late in the offseason is a huge get.
