The Chiefs agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent linebacker Corey Mays from Cincinnati. Mays is 25 years old and is in his 4th year in the league. He is another player with New England connections:
Mays, who agreed to contract terms Thursday, was known mostly for his special-teams play in his four seasons with New England and Cincinnati.
Mays can help with special teams and backup any of the linebacker positions.
The Chiefs haven't signed many free agents as of yet, but their work is not done. Scott Pioli says the Chiefs are still looking for players to add:
"We’re only in the beginning stages, player acquisition is not limited to just free-agency, and it’s not just the draft. It could be waiver claims, trades, street free agents. It could be anything we see as an opportunity to help this team get better, whether that’s in the locker room or on the field.
"You can never predict what your opportunities are going to be. We’ll keep at it. There are players out there that can help us."
The big name free agents maybe off the market, but there are still players out there that can contribute to this team. This is Pioli's favorite time of free agency, when you can find diamonds in the rough for cheap.
