Chiefs DB Changes – Veteran Safety Added

The Chiefs continue to tinker with the roster as they are about to wrap up the second week of OTA practices. On Wednesday, they announced they had added 5-year veteran S Quintin Demps and undrafted rookie S Malcolm Bronson.

In related moves, the team released S Justin Glenn and CB James Rogers.

Standing 5-11 and weighing 208 pounds, Demps came into the league as a 4th-round selection (pick #117) of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2008 NFL Draft. The Texas native spent two years with the Eagles (2008-09) and then the last three seasons with the Houston Texans (2010-12).

He’s played 48 games over the last five seasons, but only 23 games over the last three seasons with the Texans. Demps had 69 total tackles, 1 sack, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble and 1 recovered fumble. In his rookie season with the Eagles, he was fourth in the NFL in kickoff returns, averaging 25.3 yards per return, including a 100-yard TD against Baltimore.

Last season, Demps played in 12 games with Houston, contributing 30 total tackles on defense, with 2 tackles for loss and 5 passes defensed. He also had 9 tackles on special teams. He will be 28 years old in late June.

Bronson is an undrafted free agent out of McNeese State. Over 4 years, he played in 40 games, with 230 total tackles, 10 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles and 2 recovered fumbles. He was the team’s MVP in 2011. He’s 5-11, 187 pounds and played in only 3 games last season because of a knee injury that required surgery. Bronson was a three-time All-Southland Conference first-team selection. His uncle Zack Bronson played at McNeese and in the NFL for San Francisco.
