The Kansas City Chiefs roster currently sits at 89, one short of the league maximum. With more than five weeks before training camp opens, GM Scott Pioli has plenty of time to figure out how he wants to fill that final spot.
According to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, one player in the running to fill that final spot is veteran defensive back Melvin Bullitt.
Former Colt Melvin Bullitt is at Broadcast boot camp. Fully expects to continue playing. Said KC, Min have showed interest.
Even though they were able to sign veteran safety Abram Elam earlier in the offseason, the Chiefs still very much could use help in the defensive backfield. That could come in the way of an undrafted free agent like Neiko Thorpe or someone with more experience like Bullitt.
Bullitt joined the Colts in 2007 and found his way into the starting lineup during his second season. Injuries derailed his career the last two years with Bullitt playing in just six games, including five starts.
The Broadcast Boot Camp Bullitt was attending is a way for current and retired players to prepare for a potential second career on the other side of the microphone.
