Andrew Soroh will return to the Chiefs, according to agent David Canter (via Twitter). Soroh hinted at a new deal in late April, but it appears that talk might have been premature. Either way, the defensive back has himself a new deal for 2020 with KC.
Soroh joined the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent last year, but he missed the final cut to the 53-man roster. After that, he moved on to the short-lived XFL 2.0, where he appeared in a handful of games for the New York Guardians.
Now, Soroh will push to make the team as a reserve behind starting safeties Tyrann Mathieu and Juan Thornhill. His spot is far from guaranteed, but there could be an opportunity as Thornhill works his way back from offseason ACL surgery. It’s also worth noting that the Chiefs didn’t draft any safeties in April and seventh-round cornerback Thakarius Keyes represented their only pick for the secondary.
