KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — According to reports, the Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed defensive end Alex Okafor to a one-year deal.
Okafor has spent the last two season with the Chiefs after joining from the New Orleans Saints in 2019.
The eight-year veteran out of the University of Texas collected 8 regular season sacks during his first two years in Kansas City.
Okafor spent time on the injured reserve list in both 2019 (torn pec – week 15) and 2020 (hamstring – week 6).
The edge-rush signing comes a day after news that former Los Angeles Charges defensive end Melvin Ingram signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, despite having visited the Chiefs earlier in the offseason.
