The Kansas City Chiefs have decided to bring back safety Andrew Soroh, according to his agency, DEC Management. The Chiefs released wide receiver Felton Davis with an injury designation in the corresponding move, according to the NFL transaction report.

The Chiefs signed Soroh, 24, last May, but he was released at the final 53-man cutdown in late August. Soroh had three tackles and two passes defensed for Kansas City last preseason.

It appears he knew he’d be back for 2020 in April, but it only came through via his agency on Friday.

The 6-foot, 209-pound safety caught on with the New York Guardians of the XFL following his Chiefs release. In five games as a Guardian, Soroh registered 13 tackles and an interception in the short-lived league.

Soroh spent three years as a defensive back at FAU and 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.

Soroh played under current Ole Miss 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.

After top safeties Tyrann Mathieu, Juan Thornhill, Daniel Sorensen and Armani Watts, Soroh projects to be competing with Chris Lammons and Rodney Clemons for one of the team’s final roster spots — that is, if Kansas City keeps five safeties, as they did at the roster cutdown last season.
