The Kansas City Chiefs continue to check out role players and scout around the NFL with the recent workout of two players: former Indianapolis Colts safety Joe Lefeged and former New York Giants linebacker Kyle Bosworth, according to Aaron Wilson.
It's easy to understand why the team might bring bring in Joe Lefeged leading up to the team's playoff match-up against the Colts, but there might be interest beyond simple game planning and strategy. Lefeged is certainly a talented but troubled safety who was only cut by Colts GM Ryan Grigson because of gun charges, among others, earlier this year.
Josh Wilson, writer over at Stampede Blue, wasn't a fan of the move earlier this offseason. He called the release of Lefeged "strange" and "puzzling" and even "dumb", but realized there might be unstated issues that the media was unaware of. However, Wilson loves Lefeged's talents on special teams. He wrote, "The Colts cut a backup safety and valuable special teams man. Lefeged served as the team's special teams captain last year and was one of the best special teams cover guys in the league."
Bosworth is a 27-year-old linebacker who has served as roster fodder around the NFL for the last few years -- bouncing from the Jacksonville Jaguars to the New York Giants and most recently the Dallas Cowboys. He's likely a workout in case the Chiefs need another linebacker after James-Michael Johnson's placement on injured reserve.
