The Kansas City Chiefs said they were looking to potentially add a cornerback or two to help in the secondary this offseason, but there’s hardly a better move they could make for the money than bringing back Travis Daniels. Daniels certainly impressed last year in nickel coverage and has been a solid reserve for some time. The terms of the deal were not announced.
From the press release, “Daniels (6-1, 195) has appeared in 41 games (two starts) with Kansas City (2009-11). In three seasons with the Chiefs, Daniels has tallied 47 tackles (28 solo) with three INTs for 29 yards, eight passes defensed and two QB pressures. Additionally, he has recorded 12 special teams tackles for the club.”
The Chiefs could still aim for a defensive back or two in the NFL Draft given the need for further depth and special teams help. Perhaps safety is the more likely position given Eric Berry’s injury and consequent rehab.
