Kansas City Chiefs anxious to see Sanders Commings in pads

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

What can Sanders Commings do for the Chiefs? Andy Reid is excited to see him in pads to test that out.

The Kansas City Chiefs didn't make any splashy moves at the free safety position. For many fans, the reaction was, "What are the Chiefs thinking? Did they even watch the second half of the season?"

The Chiefs argument may be that they did add some talent in the secondary in the form of Sanders Commings, the Chiefs 2013 fifth round pick who missed basically all of his rookie season with a broken collarbone suffered in the first days of training camp.

Commings has seen time during practice at free safety and will likely be an option behind Husain Abdullah and when the Chiefs move to their dime package.

As Chiefs minicamp ended on Thursday marking the end of the offseason program, Andy Reid was asked about Commings and said he's ready to see him hit.

"He's one of the ones I really am looking forward to seeing up at camp once we are able to hit," Reid said on Friday. "I think everyone is tired of this right here. They want to take a quick blow and then finish up their training and then get the pads on. We've done all the short stuff we can do. Now we need to take it up a notch with camp. We'll definitely take it up a notch and be more physical with each other. Sanders, we sure liked what we saw in shorts, just have to see how it looks with pads on."

The secondary was one of the Chiefs biggest issues down the stretch last season so there will be plenty of attention on Commings and his ability to patrol that back half.

"He can cover a lot of ground," Reid said of Commings.

That's the goal for the Chiefs secondary. The team, in general, needed to add more speed. The Chiefs are hoping Commings can be a playmaker when the pads come on.
