Kansas City Chiefs work out Ras-I Dowling and Chris Rainey

The Kansas City Chiefs have already surpassed their win total from a year ago, but that hasn’t stopped them from going through available free agents and looking to bolster the depth on their roster.

Among the most recognizable names that the Chiefs have recently worked out are former New England Patriots cornerback Ras-I Dowling, who was selected in the second-round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and former Pittsburgh Steelers fifth-round pick Chris Rainey.

Rainey is an intriguing player with his elite speed, but he has not received any NFL interest since multiple run-ins with the law during his time in Pittsburgh. However, it looks like Rainey has kept busy working out, because he reportedly ran a 40-yard dash in the high 4.2′s.

Whether or not the Chiefs sign any of the players remains to be seen, but they will remain options if the team suffers any key injuries throughout the regular season.

According to the National Football Post, the Chiefs also worked out tight ends Kyle Adams, Richard Gordon, Brett Brackett and Matt Veldman, defensive back T.J. Heath, defensive tackle Kheeston Randall and nose tackle Sealer Siliga.
