KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent safety Abram Elam to provide depth behind Eric Berry, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury sustained last season.

Elam will be entering his seventh season in the league after spending last year with the Cowboys. He's also played for the Jets and the Browns, starting 64 of the 92 games he's appeared in with 365 tackles, five sacks and three interceptions.

The Chiefs have been especially thin at safety during offseason workouts.

Berry has been held out while recovering from a torn left ACL early last season, and fellow starter Kendrick Lewis has been out after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery.
