Ever since safety Oshiomogho Atogwe visited the Detroit Lions in March, all has seemingly been quiet on that front. Atogwe talked about how he was a Lions fan growing up and how it would be "special" to play for them, but a deal never developed.
Now, Atogwe is drawing some interesting from the Kansas City Chiefs. According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, Atogwe visited the Chiefs on Tuesday (as did tight end Dallas Clark). Apparently the Chiefs are interested in adding some depth at safety.
It’s not surprising the Chiefs would look for a veteran safety. They have little experienced depth behind starters Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis. Berry missed all but a handful of plays last season, also because of torn knee ligaments, while Lewis had offseason shoulder surgery.
With the Lions not drafting a safety, the team could really still use some depth at the position. Even if one of the three cornerbacks the Lions drafted were to move to safety, the need for veteran depth still exists. Atogwe seems like he would be a good fit for that role, especially since he is from the area and did grow up a Lions fan.
