Today we take a look at the safeties...lots of changes all year at this position that was plagued by injuries.
103 Tackles. 2 sacks. 3 Interceptions.
Brown finished the season second in tackles and tied for second with Derrick Johnson for the second most interceptions. Despite these numbers Brown was widely debated all season and was said to be a weak point in our defense giving up numerous big plays. However Brown did stay healthy all season for one of the first times in his career.
46 Tackles.1 Sack. 1 Interception.
McGraw came into the season as a backup safety and a special teams ace. McGraw ended up getting a lot of playing time due to injuries and played pretty solid. I would say going into 2010 the Chiefs will keep McGraw as a special teams player and a very good backup.
Price spent most of the season on the practice squad. Price did see some playing time due to injuries. Price played in two games and totalled 3 tackles against the Broncos in the last game of the season.
Langford was picked up from the Eagles and was put on the Chiefs PS.
Morgan was another player that benefited from injuries and ended up getting two starts in 2009. Morgan also played special teams. Morgans best game of the season came against the Browns when he recorded 8 tackles. Morgan was put on the IR towards the end of the season due to a chest injury that occured during that Browns game.
19 Tackles. 1 Forced Fumble.
Jarrad Page started the season as a starter on the Chiefs defense but suffered a calf injury in week 7 that ended his season. Page could be on the bubble going into the offseason.
Theres the safeties...Who stays? Goes?
