The Kansas City Chiefs announced three new additions to their roster.

Defensive back Husain Abdullah, linebacker Joe Mays and offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach have all agreed to contracts with the franchise.

“We are excited to be able to bring back Husain Abdullah as well as add Joe Mays and Jeff Linkenbach to our roster,” Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey said. “All three of these men will add depth and talent to our team as we continue to build for the 2014 season.”

Abdullah was a member of the Chiefs in 2013 after four years with the Vikings. In his five-year career, Abdullah has 146 tackles (108 solo), 2.5 sacks (-25.5 yards), 17 pass deflections and five interceptions.

Mays spent the 2013 season with the Texans after being with the Broncos the previous three years, which followed a two-year stint with the Eagles. He's totaled 194 tackles (141 solo), 18 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks (-10.5 yards), six pass deflections and one forced fumble during his career.

Linkenbach started 33 of the 60 games he appeared in with the Colts from 2010-2013. He's versatile enough to play both guard and tackle. He was a four-year right tackle at the University of Cincinnati.
