Chiefs Working Out A Familiar Name

The Kansas City Chiefs have an open roster spot with the season-ending injury to RB Jamaal Charles, which means they're going to be signing someone, possibly as soon as today.

The Chiefs reportedly worked out defensive lineman Gerard Warren last week so he's a name to remember but they also reportedly plan to work out a familiar name -- FB Mike CoxThis according to The Patriot-News

Cox went to Georgia Tech, where he was coached by Chan Gailey, and signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Chiefs in 2008. He was on the roster until NFL roster cuts earlier this year appearing in 39 games over the last three years.

The conspiracy theorist in me says bringing Cox back could mean more running back time for FB Le'Ron McClain, who was signed in the offseason. With Charles' injury, the Chiefs could use another running back and McClain had some success in Baltimore during his one season as a feature back.

We'll see what the Chiefs decide to do with this open roster spot.
