Since the NFL Draft ended on Saturday night, some teams are already beginning to reach out to some of the remaining free agents who haven't found a home yet for next season.

The Kansas City Chiefs are one of these teams.

Earlier tonight, Bill Williamson of ESPN.com reported that the Chiefs visited with free agents Dallas Clark and A.J. Otogwe on Tuesday evening.

Both players would be interesting options for this team in the future.

Let's break down what kind of players KC would be getting, if they were to ink either of them to a deal in the coming days.

Clark has played all nine seasons of his NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts, who decided to release him earlier this offseason in order to begin a youth movement at that position.

Although he is now 32 years old, Clark is a proven winner and can provide another veteran presence at tight end for this offense.

There's also a chance that he still has something left in the tank, considering that he is only three years removed from a season where he had 100 catches for over 1,100 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

Otogwe, on the other hand, is also a very good player in his own right.

The former Redskin is entering his eighth season as a pro, and he has made 83 starts at safety during that span.

The Windsor, Ontario product has earned a reputation as one of the better ball-hawking safeties in the NFC over the past few years, as he snagged 25 interceptions combined in his time with St. Louis and Washington.

He could potentially start at safety for the Chiefs in 2012, but he is more likely to push for a backup role behind incumbent starters Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis.

Now comes the real question.

Should the Chiefs sign either Clark or Otogwe to a free-agent deal?

Although neither is likely to make a large impact on this team next season, it wouldn't hurt them if they did land one or both of these players.

After all, more depth and veteran leadership couldn't hurt this team at all.
