He's Abram Elam, who played six years with Dallas, the New York Jets and Cleveland. Elam started 64 games during that time.

While Elam won't be a threat to either of the starters, Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis, he at least has some experience, which has been lacking with Berry and Lewis sidelined during off-season practice. The Chiefs had been using some odd combinations at safety, so they may try to get Elam worked into the mix as soon as possible.
