The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed developmental safety Andrew Soroh.
The Kansas City Chiefs have decided to re-sign safety Andrew Soroh, per his agent, in the team’s latest roster move to bolster competition in the secondary.
Soroh signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent after the 2019 NFL Draft as an NFL prospect out of Florida Atlantic University. Soroh was cut just before the regular season began as the team had to pare down the active roster to only 53 players.
Back at FAU, Soroh was a versatile defender who lined up as a linebacker with reps in the secondary as well. At 6’0, 206 lbs., he profiles more as a safety at the pro level, but you can imagine the tweener roles that defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo would likely utilize him for—the same spaces occupied by Dan Sorensen and others.
In college, Soroh finished his career at FAU with 52 tackles, including 4.5 of them for a loss, and 1.5 sacks in his final season for the Owls.
After Soroh was cut by the Chiefs, he was drafted in the sixth round of the defensive backs portion of the recent XFL Draft by the New York Guardians. With the Guardians, he joined former Chiefs like offensive lineman Damien Mama, quarterback Matt McGloin, and linebacker D’Juan Hines. Soroh had 20 total tackles and 1 interception for the Guardians.
Given that Soroh was given a second look by the Chiefs, that’s a good sign for him to stick beyond some of the other new undrafted free agents in camp. The Chiefs are already familiar with what he can bring and that’s intriguing enough to see how he’s developed after another year including the XFL stint. His versatility should come into play and it will be interesting to see whether he can pull of a roster upset of sorts and knock off a player who is a more familiar name to fans.
