The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed plenty of their own defensive free agents, but one defensive back is still waiting to find a new home. Perhaps Mike Edwards' latest free agent will yield a new home for him.

On Monday, the Indianapolis Colts hosted former Chiefs safety Mike Edwards on their latest look into free agency.

The Colts are an interesting team to have on the other side of this potential transaction knowing they are also reportedly interested in trading for Chiefs corner L'Jarius Sneed. The rumors swirling around Sneed are confusing and contradictory but the Colts are reportedly in the thick of it for the franchise-tagged player.

Edwards came to the Chiefs last spring on a cheaper single-season deal after spending his first few years in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Edwards slid into the important third safety role for the Chiefs, a team that gives a lot of playing time to extra defensive backs, and Edwards proved his value over the long season.

The best part of having Edwards on the Chiefs defense was the way the secondary adjusted to the season-ending injury to Bryan Cook. Edwards was able to step in as a starter and the defense maintained its dominance during a grueling Super Bowl run.

Edwards had 51 tackles, 1 sack, 2 fumble recoveries, and 1 interception for the Chiefs last season.
