We now have reports of two new Kansas City Chiefs signings — both UDFA defensive backs from Florida Atlantic University that were announced by the school through Twitter.

Herb Miller, 21, was a four-year player at FAU, where he totaled 102 tackles (66 solo) a pair of interceptions and 14 passes defensed in 39 games. He appears, however, to primarily be a special teamer — he was named spring special teams MVP this past season at FAU.

The other is Andrew Soroh, 23, who was also a four-year player at FAU. He spent three years as a defensive back, but switched to linebacker in 2018. Over 37 games, he recorded 145 tackles (79 solo) 10.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks — plus three interceptions.

Both players played under former Oakland Raiders, Tennessee and USC head coach Lane Kiffin — who has been head coach at FAU for the last two seasons — and played on FAU’s 2017 CUSA Champion team that won the Boca Raton Bowl.

According to the NFL transactions report, on Tuesday the Chiefs released defensive back Leon McQuay (Southern California) and defensive back Dakari Monroe (San Jose State) to make room for these two FAU players.
