Jim McIsaac

The Kansas City Chiefs will work out a player who didn't play at all last season. Husain Abdullah, a safety, will work out for the Chiefs on February 8, according to a report.

New Kansas City Chiefs GM John Dorsey has signed several free agents thus far this offseason and they could add another one later this week. According to a report from Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, safety Husain Abdullah will work out for the Chiefs later this week.

Abdullah has a very unique story. Last summer, he planned a pilgrimage to Mecca as part of his Islamic faith, which means he was out of football all of last season.

He'll get his chance to prove to the Chiefs he can play at that February 8 workout.

Abdullah was a 2008 undrafted free agent by the Minnesota Vikings. He spent four years in Minnesota, appearing in 54 regular season games with 24 starts, which includes 15 starts during the 2010 season.

The Chiefs will need help at safety with Abe Elam set to hit free agency in March.
