NFL Free Agency 2012: Kansas City Chiefs Sign Abram Elam

The Kansas City Chiefs have announced the signing of free agent safety Abram Elam, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Monday. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Elam is a 30-year-old who came into the league undrafted in 2005 out of Kent State. Since then, he's made two stints with the Dallas Cowboys, and spent time with the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns as well.

Elam has only missed one start in the last three seasons. With the Cowboys in 2011, he had 68 tackles and forced one fumble. The signing of Elam gives the Chiefs more depth with their defensive backs, an area that could certainly use a bit of shaking up.
