The Kansas City Chiefs continued their roster-tweaking today, announcing the signing of two players and the release of two others.
The Chiefs added a safety by the name of Malcom Bronson out of McNeese State. The team also inked veteran safety Quintin Demps.
To make room, the Chiefs released S Justin Glenn (University of Washington) and CB James Rogers (University of Michigan).
Here is what the Chiefs’ press release said on Bronson and Demps.
Bronson (5-11, 192) joins Kansas City as a rookie free agent after playing collegiately at McNeese State. In four years, he played in 40 games recording 230 tackles (159 solo), 10 interceptions (233 yards), 18 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He was the team’s MVP in 2011 and was on the 2012 Buck Buchanan watch list. The Jasper, Texas, native was a multi-sport standout at Jasper High School.
Demps (5-11, 208) joins Kansas City as an unrestricted free agent from the Houston Texans. In five NFL seasons with the Texans (2010-12) and Philadelphia Eagles (2008-09), Demps saw action in 48 contests tallying 61 tackles (51 solo), 1.0 sack (-9.0 yards), three interceptions (59 yards), 13 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick (117th overall) of the Eagles in 2008. The San Antonio, Texas, native played collegiately at UTEP and prepped at Theodore Roosevelt High School in San Antonio.
Demps obviously comes to town with some experience and an Andy Reid connection. He played 354 snaps with the Texans last season and Pro Football Focus graded just slightly below average at -2.1. He played one game at FS but most of his action came at SS. He was credited with 20 tackles and four stops. During his time with the Eagles, Demps played exclusively on special teams.
What do you think, Addicts? Will Demps be able to make an impact in training camp as a reserve safety, special teams contributor?
