Coffee with the Chiefs – Moves made!


Good morning, Addicts! Hopefully you enjoyed April Fool’s Day and can now sit back and soak in a nice weekend away from the office.

It seems Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey is getting some work done in short order, as the Chiefs signed a pair of safeties on Friday night. Kansas City brought in both Stevie Brown and Jimmy Wilson, a duo that each received one-year deals.

Wilson has been a decent player in the league, starting out with the Miami Dolphins through the first four seasons on his carer before joining the San Diego Chargers in 2015. He was cut by San Diego in December.

Brown has bounced around a bit more. The veteran has played for the New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts and Oakland Raiders. He had eight interceptions in 2012 with the Giants but has regressed horribly since, not playing a game in 2015. He is certainly a camp signing at this point who would have to earn a spot.

Here is the news you need to know…

"The Chiefs have had recent success signing veteran safeties to one-year “prove-it” deals. Quintin Demps had a four-interception season in 2013, Kurt Coleman intercepted three passes with the Chiefs in 2014 and Branch thrived as the Chiefs’ third safety last season."

"The first phase is mostly conditioning with the second and third phases getting the players on the field with more football work. However, the offseason is non-contact until training camp so there is no tackling."

"He fits what the Chiefs need well – a long cornerback to play opposite Marcus Peters. However, I’m not sure he’s there with the Chiefs 28th pick."
