Chiefs Work Out LB Amara Kamara


In what is a clear attempt to up their number of players with rhyming first and last names, the Kansas City Chiefs worked out former Temple linebacker Amara Kamara this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

The Chiefs actually signed Kamara as an undrafted free agent in July but he failed to make the team.

Here is his old bio from

"Kamara (6-1, 240) appeared in 47 contests (42 starts) at Temple, producing 249 tackles (133 solo), 12.5 tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks, two QB pressures, an INT, eight passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He prepped at Weequahic High School in Newark, N.J."

It is not unusual for teams to kick the tires on players on Tuesdays. If they liked how Kamara looked and they want to add more depth at linebacker they might consider adding him to the practice squad. We’ll let you know if we hear anything.
