KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW TV) - Veteran defensive end Alex Okafor will return to Kansas City this season, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport tweeted Tuesday the Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with the 30-year-old free agent.

Okafor joined the Chiefs in 2019 following two seasons with the Saints.

His time in Kansas City has been riddled with injuries. A torn pec in Week 15 forced him to miss the team’s Super Bowl LIV run. The following season, Okafor spent a stint on the injured reserve due to hamstring issues.

Okafor has recorded eight sacks in 19 games in his two seasons with the Chiefs.
