After finishing 31st in the league in pass yards allowed last season, the Kansas City Chiefs needed as much help as possible in the secondary this offseason. They took a step this offseason in doing that by signing Tyrann Mathieu. They, however, didn’t do much at cornerback and now they have picked up former first-round pick Morris Claiborne.
While Claiborne is not going to make a big impact, he will help out. Last season as a member of the Jets he was better as a run defender than he was as a pass defender.
If the Chiefs want to take the next step and get to the Super Bowl they will need to be much improved in the secondary.
Morris Claiborne Signs
As stated, and is obvious to everyone, the Chiefs need to improve in the secondary. Claiborne is an okay pickup and earlier this offseason they picked up Bashaud Breeland.
Last season Breeland was not good. So while the Chiefs have some different players in the secondary, they were necessarily better last season.
Claiborne is also going to miss the first four games of the season while he’s serving a PED suspension.
So while the Chiefs did add a cornerback with this signing, don’t expect Claiborne to have a huge impact.
