The Kansas City Chiefs continue to work out free agents in their search for possible contributors this offseason. Former Ravens safety Christian Thompson and running back George Winn are the latest players John Dorsey has brought in, according to Aaron Wilson.
Thompson might be familiar to NFL Draftniks considering he was the fourth round selection of the Baltimore Ravens in 2012. The small school safety played college ball at South Carolina State and only lasted just over a season with the Ravens before he was released in October earlier this year. The Chiefs question marks at safety heading into the 2014 season are obvious with Quintin Demps, Husain Abdullah and Kendrick Lewis all scheduled to be free agents.
Winn is a former back from the University of Cincinnati who earned roster spots with five different NFL teams between last year's NFL Draft and last month. After entering the league as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans, Winn also clocked in with the Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys in 2013. Winn played Isaiah Pead at Cincinnati for his first three years before breaking out his senior season, his only one as a starter. He had 243 carries for 1,334 yards and 13 touchdowns his senior year. The Chiefs will be dealing with running back Knile Davis and his broken leg this offseason so they could need someone for more reps.
