Kansas City Chiefs Work Out Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out safety Jaiquawn Jarrett last week, according to NFL reporter Adam Caplan. The former second-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles was released by the team last week, after he didn't live up to expectations.

Head coach Andy Reid said after Jarrett's release that the safety he billed as being similar to Brian Dawkins was a bit of a reach. One problem was Jarrett's footspeed, which hampered him playing deep in the Eagles' secondary opposed to making his living in the box, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jarrett recorded 17 tackles in 12 games with the Eagles in his rookie season.

The Chiefs have had injury problems in the secondary of late. Safety Kendrick Lewis missed Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills, and a timetable for his return is unknown. Eric Berry and Abram Elam were manning the two safety positions in the 35-17 loss.
