The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly in the process of signing another player to bolster their defensive backfield -- McNeese State's Malcolm Bronson. The safety will reportedly ink a deal with the Chiefs today, according to Aaron Wilson.

Bronson is listed at 5' 11, 192 pounds out of Jasper, Texas and is one of the most celebrated defensive players in Southland Conference history. He was picked as 2012 Preseason All-SLC First Team and placed on the Buck Buchanan watch list after being named the team's MVP after the 2011 season. Unfortunately his pro dreams took a turn for the worse after a knee injury ruined his senior season.

In a win over Weber State, Bronson hurt his knee and subsequent surgery left him out for the year. He was once on the Senior Bowl watch list, but instead he was forced to sit on the sidelines and watch the entire NFL Draft process pass him by as well.

Bronson finishes his career with 37 starts for the Cowboys. He has 10 career interceptions including two returned for touchdowns.

A quick search shows he visited with at least three teams before the draft -- Raiders, Bills and Saints.
