Cam Thomas re-signs with Kansas City Chiefs

ATLANTA, GA - DECEMBER 14: Matt Ryan /

The Kansas City Chiefs have replaced Roy Miller along the defensive line with fellow veteran Cam Thomas, who was with K.C. in the preseason.

Cam Thomas is back once again with the Kansas City Chiefs, signing with the team on Monday, per Field Yates, as the defensive tackle hopes to help replace the recently released Roy Miller.

The Chiefs were in the market for another stout defensive tackle who can help supply a rotational body in the team’s run defense packages. Miller was arrested on Saturday and charged with domestic battery, though he was let go and his wife refused to ultimately press charges. It remains to be seen whether or not the state of Florida will pursue a case against Miller, but the Chiefs decided to wash their hands of Miller anyway.

Thomas should sound familiar to Chiefs fans who paid attention to roster construction this summer. Thomas was with the Chiefs during training camp after signing with the team a few weeks after the NFL Draft. Thomas was one of a few veterans hoping to make the team but was likely pushed by Miller’s late signing, making this a bit of a full circle.

Thomas should also be familiar with the AFC West given that he entered the league in 2010 as an original fifth round draft pick of the San Diego Chargers. Thomas has also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and St. Louis Rams in recent seasons. Thomas has played in 101 games in his NFL career, including 27 starts. He has 7.5 sacks in that time period and a single interception.
