The second wave of free agency is John Dorsey's time and he's showing it with three reported free agent signings on Friday. Per reports, the Chiefs have agreed to a deal with former Chargers S Jimmy Wilson, former Giants S Stevie Brown and former Packers OLB Andy Mulumba.

As that second tweet notes, think of Kurt Coleman. Or you could say Husain Abdullah or Tyvon Branch. That's what you're hoping for with both or either of those safety signings. Both of these signings fill that veteran safety role the Chiefs are missing with Tyvon Branch's exit and Husain Abdullah's retirement.

Jimmy Wilson has a unique background. This is a good piece to read. He's a 5'11 safety listed at 193 pounds. He could compete with Steven Nelson to cover the slot which is an area we've been talking about with the Chiefs secondary. That's one of the few remaining holes on this defense.

Stevie Brown entered the league as a seventh round pick by the Raiders back in 2010. He played for the Colts in 2011 and then three years with the Giants after that. He had eight picks for the 2012 Giants defense. He didn't play last season so he may have a long road ahead of him to make the roster. He's only 28.

Meanwhile, we mentioned Mulumba earlier on Friday because it was reported he was visiting the Chiefs. Apparently that visit went very well. Mulumba has great size with special teams and some defensive experience in Green Bay. However, the Packers curiously did not tender him as a restricted free agent. Mulumba could be your next Dezman Moses (a former Packer himself).
