The Chiefs added to their veteran depth at safety on Wednesday, signing Quintin Demps. The move was announced on the club’s website.

Demps, 27, played his first two NFL seasons (2008, 2009) under now-Chiefs coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia. Demps has played the last three seasons with Houston, and he comes off his most productive campaign, notching 35 tackles and defending five passes in 12 games for the Texans.

Demps figures to vie for a reserve role behind Kendrick Lewis and Eric Berry at safety. Moreover, he can contribute on special teams. The Texans credited Demps with nine special teams tackles (six solo) in the 2012 regular season.

In other roster moves, the Chiefs signed undrafted free agent safety Malcolm Bronson and waived rookie cornerback Justin Glenn and first-year cornerback James Rogers.

    Maybe Demps plays better but he couldn’t play for Reid in Philly when the Eagles had no safties.

    Good for him – hope he does well up there. Texans staff liked him very much. Maybe he didn’t do much for Reid in Philly, but he got his feet wet in Houston. Good move for KC.

    Nothing wrong for any team to add depth–especially quality depth. I agree–maybe he had a chance to get his feet wet in Houston and get better. Solid pick up for KC I say.

    Big on the Chiefs secondary this year. Emmitt Thomas and Al Harris have significantly more talent to work with than the Brandon Carrless squad Pioli put on the field last season.

    I hear Quintin Mikell is available. Might as well re-tread all his old Ex-Eagles

    Not spectacular but solid. Good move KC.

    Chiefs are doing a great job at adding dept. my top 2 things to become a championship team is #1 outstanding defense #2 depth! depth! Depth!……always gonna be injures during the season. And I’ve seen it too many times when a bro bowl star player gets hurt the team as a whole collapses. Need good above average players waiting for there number to be called.
