Prior to signing safety Quinton Demps on Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs worked out former Bengals safety Corey Lynch.

After being selected in the sixth-round of the 2008 NFL draft, Lynch played seven games for the Bengals during his rookie year, recording an interception against the New York Jets. Two games later Lynch suffered a season-ending knee injury and was placed on Injured Reserve.

Featured on HBO's Hard Knocks for saving a woman's life, Lynch failed to make the 53-man roster, but was signed to the Bengals practice squad. Tampa Bay poached Lynch later that month, going on to play 45 of a possible 48 regular season games for three years.

Last year Lynch replaced Atari Bigby as the San Diego Chargers strong safety after Bigby was placed on season-ending IR with a groin injury. Lynch went on pick off an Andy Dalton pass against the Bengals and another interception against the Jets (but who hasn't).

Lynch is currently an unrestricted free agent.
