If it wasn't clear the Kansas City Chiefs are seeking a veteran safety then it should be now. After the Chiefs visited with free agent safeties OJ Atogwe and Yeremiah Bell, they have reportedly met with Abram Elam, another free agent safety, according to a report from Bob Gretz.

Bell has since signed with the New York Jets. Atogwe remains a free agent.

Chiefs safeties Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis are both recovering from injuries and neither has participated in OTAs so far so the Chiefs need a safety net there. Elam is at least the third veteran the Chiefs have looked out. That the Chiefs are looking at veteran safeties isn't necessarily a sign that Berry or Lewis aren't progressing well enough in their rehab. As the Chiefs learned last year, you can never have enough depth at key positions. But it should raise your eyebrows a little bit that the Chiefs have been concerned enough to visit with several veteran free agents at the position.

Elam, 30, went undrafted seven years ago and debuted with the Dallas Cowboys in the 2006 NFL season. He spent time with the Jets and Cleveland Browns before returning to the Cowboys last season. As recently as January, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he wouldn't be surprised if Elam returned to the team, calling him the "quarterback" of the defense.

Elam also recently visited with the Tennessee Titans.
