The Atlanta Falcons had some bad news this week when it was announced that Pro Bowl FB Ovie Mughelli was going to be placed on injured reserve, ending his season. The Falcons brought in a number of fullbacks to work out today and signed one.
Can you guess which former Kansas City Chiefs fullback is on the market?
If you guessed Mike Cox, you are correct. The Falcons announced the signing of the former Chief today.
Cox was with the Chiefs for three seasons -- 2008-10. He was released at the final cutdown day in early September after the team had acquired FB Le'Ron McClain. The Chiefs also worked him out in mid-September this year, a few days after Jamaal Charles was lost for the season.
It's a homecoming of sorts for him as he returns to the state where he went to college.
Cox can't say he's the most famous Chief to go from KC to Atlanta. That's reserved for a certain tight end.
