The Kansas City Chiefs hosted free agent safety Abram Elam at club headquarters in late May.

On Monday, they announced Elam has been signed to a contract.

Elam, 30, has started 47 games over the past three seasons. While he’s shown little playmaking ability, Elam adds experienced depth with starting safeties Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis sitting out OTAs due to injury.

Elam will compete with Travis Daniels, Kyle McCarthy, Donald Washington, and rookies De’Quan Menzie and Terrance Parks for a roster spot in training camp.
