Who fills out the remaining spot(s) in the secondary?

As things stand now the Chiefs are short a safety with only three players – Eric Berry, Sanders Commings, and Husain Abdullah – appearing to be locks for the roster. There is also a chance there will be an extra cornerback spot available, too. What will the Chiefs do with those open roster spots?

It would seem the frontrunner for the extra safety spot is Daniel Sorensen, a safety from BYU who displays excellent quickness from sideline to sideline and was strong in OTAs. But John Dorsey is known for making last minute additions to the team (see: Cooper, Marcus) and may have his eye on a defensive back on another team who could be cut.

There may also be a spot open for either David or DeMarcus Van Dyke, two corners who could work their way into reserve corner role. The Chiefs are continuing to shuffle around their roster at cornerback so that would seem to indicate there is some areas they’d like to improve on. Whether or not the solution is currently on the roster is unknown.
