Over the weekend reports came out that the Kansas City Chiefs had signed safety Husain Abdullah. On Monday afternoon, the KC Chiefs confirmed those reports.
As usual we first learned of the new player joining the Chiefs via social media (Instagram) then the reporters followed with their reports and now the Chiefs have made it official: safety Husain Abdullah has been signed.
Here's his bio from the Chiefs:
Abdullah (6-0, 204) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings in 2008.

Abdullah was named Honorable Mention All-Pac 10 as a senior at Washington State, recording team highs with 93 tackles and four interceptions, also earning team defensive MVP after his senior season. The Pomona, Calif., native, prepped at Pomona High School where he was named second team All-CIF as a senior and was CIF Division 9 Defensive Player of the Year.
