Former Falcons CB Akeem King joins Chiefs practice squad

New, comments

King never really worked out in Atlanta, but maybe a change of scenery will help him.

Everyone was disappointed to see Reggie Davis and Chris Odom joining other practice squads, but there are Falcons getting snapped up left and right. The latest is former seventh round pick Akeem King, who will join the Chiefs.

King is the kind of player that will always manage to intrigue a team, given his size and flashes of productive play. He got burnt too often this summer, however, and the team didn’t get much out of him three seasons due to injury and new talent acquisitions. I hope he can catch on and play well for the Chiefs.
