Kansas City Chiefs work out 5 free agents

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs remained diligent this week in their exploration of the free agent market.

The Kansas City Chiefs continue to work out several players each week as they scour the free agent ranks. John Dorsey and company reportedly brought in five players this time around as Chas Alecxih, Hall Davis, DaJohn Harris, Delano Johnson and Martin Parker all worked out, according to Aaron Wilson.

[Ed. Note: We're doing a bit of guesswork here since Wilson had "Delanoe Johnson" and "Marlin Parker" listed. It's likely that he meant Delano Johnson and Martin Parker. However if not, then ignore those profiles below.]

By now it should be clear that Dorsey is just checking inventory in case of emergency at this stage. The Chiefs have worked out several players on both sides of the ball. Over the course of a long NFL season, it's impossible to tell who will stay healthy or where needs might arise. One look at the Chiefs' losses over the weekend at linebacker served as a strong reminder of the unexpected nature of the game.

Here's a quick rundown of the five free agents the team worked out:

Chas Alecxih, DL

A defensive lineman from Pitt, he weighed in at the 2013 NFL Combine at 6'4, 296 lbs. notedthat he could slide out to 3-4 defensive tackle in the NFL and projected him as a 3rd-4th round rating. So far, he obviously hasn't found a home.

Hall Davis, LB

Originally a fifth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft for the St. Louis Rams, Davis has also logged time with the Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns

DaJohn Harris, DT

Harris was a defensive line prospect out of USC, but failed to get drafted in 2012. He signed as a UDFA with the Titans and was released this past offseason.

Delano Johnson, LB

Johnson spent all of last season on the Houston Texans practice squad. He was a small school linebacker out of Bowie State.

Martin Parker, DT

The former Richmond star has spent time with the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks in recent years. A back injury sidelined Parker for his rookie season.
