Former Denver Broncos safety Kyle McCarthy writes on Twitter that he's agreed to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. McCarthy, 25, joined the Broncos in 2010 as an undrafted free agent.
McCarthy went to school at Notre Dame. He's listed at 6'1" and 205 pounds. He's a Youngstown, Ohio native.
The Chiefs will get Eric Berry back next season but they're also scheduled to lose three safeties in free agency -- Jon McGraw, Reshard Langford (exclusive rights free agent) and Sabby Piscitelli. But this move is more about special teams than anything else.
McCarthy played in four games in 2011 and eight games in 2010. He has seven total tackles on his career.
McCarthy was released by the Broncos in December and then re-upped with the team for the final month.
