The Kansas City Chiefs don’t have nearly as many holes as they used to, but linebacker is still one of those positions that lacks enough depth heading into camp — both on the outside and the inside. Justin Houston was added in the draft and Cameron Sheffield returns from a season-ending injury from last season’s draft class. But joining them in an attempt to make the final roster will be yet another free agent signing from Temple in linebacker Amara Kamara.
If Kamara makes the roster, he will easily sport the best name on the team if anything else. It’s difficult to get much of a read on Kamara given that his measureables are different depending on the website you trust. CBS had him at 6-2, 238, but ESPN has Kamara at 6-0. He’s likely a fit on special teams only since his play at Temple didn’t seem to produce much in the way of dynamic stats. He had 55 tackles to go with zero sacks, zero forced fumbles and zero interceptions. In other words, it’s hard to see the draw here based on what limited information we can find.
However, Scott Pioli is the one at the helm, so trust is key here. If anything else, just order that Amara Kamara jersey.
