Kansas City Chiefs Re-Sign Safety Husain Abdullah On A Two-Year Deal


After a terrible first hour of free agency, it got better for the Kansas City Chiefs when they extended safety, Husain Abdullah.

Reports are that the deal is worth $2.27 million, with a $750,000 signing bonus, and annual salaries of $725,000, $745,000. Not a bad deal on the Chiefs end and keeping Abdullah was a good move. Seems like John Dorsey is prepared to roll with Abdullah and Sanders Commings as his two guys at free safety, which, if it pans out, could end up being one of the best moves for the Chiefs moving forward.

Commings suffered a broken collar bone on the first day of training camp last season, so the Chiefs shut him down until week 6. He saw limited time and had very little contribution, so we’re still not sure what to expect from him as a starter in the NFL. Obviously, the Chiefs are pretty high on the kid, as he showed great athleticism and range before being injured.

He and Abdullah could be a good, not great, combination at safety opposite Eric Berry in 2014. Abdullah showed flashes of being a good cover safety last year and was a key contributor on special teams, so it makes sense for the Chiefs to give him this extension.

So far, the Chiefs have kept LB Frank Zombo, LS Thomas Gafford, and Husain Abdullah. Not exactly your household names, but all are key contributors and depth. The rumor mill has the Chiefs linked to a few more players out there like receiver, Joe Morgan and LB, Joe Mays. Stay tuned to KCKingdom for all the latest free agency news and rumors.

    I’ll be glad when the dollar day’s of free agency’s start, so there might be a little reason for optimism. The Donkeys are mortgaging their future to win a championship while the Chief’s talk about building through the draft. If the Raider’s weren’t so miserable I could see a repeat of the Todd & Scott playoff to cellar dwellers fiasco. I hope I’m totally off base and ” THE PLAN ” will work out, if not ; here we go again !
