After seeing five players sign with other teams, the Chiefs brought back safety Husain Abdullah on a two-year deal. Though he missed all of 2012 to make a pilgrimage to Mecca with his brother, the veteran caught on quickly with Bob Sutton’s defense and appeared in all 16 games.
Before coming to Kansas City, 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.
The Chiefs have a lot of work to do in the secondary and even though Abdullah won’t be starting next to Eric Berry, he’s a huge boost to the depth. He also provides special teams coach Dave Toub with the type of special teams player every unit needs to be special.
