Chiefs add needed experience at safety

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs have signed a veteran safety, according to his agent. Kurt Coleman played the past four seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles, starting 27. games. He was drafted when the Eagles were coached by Andy Reid, and he played three seasons for Reid.

Coleman was recently released by the Minnesota Vikings.

The Chiefs could use the help at safety. Eric Berry missed the whole preseason and a part of training camp with an injured heel. Berry has returned to practice and looked good on Monday. But the Chiefs needed better options if Berry has to leave their lineup again.

Their backups at safety before Coleman were Kelcie McCray, who has played in 15 games with no starts, and undrafted rookie Daniel Sorensen.
