Dec 24, 2011; Orchard Park, NY, USA; Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Spencer Johnson (91) free safety Jairus Byrd (31) and cornerback Drayton Florence (29) celebrate after Johnson runs back a stripped ball for a touchdown against the Denver Broncos durin
The Kansas City Chiefs made their roster cuts on Friday night and they kept a couple of guys in the secondary that perhaps they normally wouldn't. The Chiefs are facing injury issues with Kendrick Lewis and Brandon Flowers so adding some depth in the secondary makes sense.
Four players who might catch the Chiefs' eye:
S O.J. Atogwe: He was released by the Eagles. It wasn't that long ago (2011) that he received a multi-year contract with the Redskins. The Chiefs also brought him in for a visit a few days before he ended up signing in Philly.
CB Joselio Hanson: One of the Eagles top nickelbacks, Hanson was a surprise cut this year. The Chiefs have Flowers out. He could help right away. The Chiefs Eagles have good depth in the secondary. This may not be a talent issue.
CB Drayton Florence: Did not see this one coming. Cut by the Broncos. Been on three teams in the last four years. Added bonus: San Diego liked him before he signed in Denver. But why was he cut in Denver?
Who else am I missing? The Chiefs could need another corner for however long Flowers is out and a third safety -- who is better than Travis Daniels -- with Lewis out.
Update: A reader makes a good point here...

@arrowheadpride Chris Carr also a name to consider. Chiefs worked him out before he signed with Minnesota.
