The 30-year-old has been with Kansas City for the past two seasons. In the 2020 regular season, Okafor played in 11 games, recording three sacks and 10 quarterback hits.
A torn pectoral muscle prevented Okafor from playing in Super Bowl LIV and at the start of the 2020-21 season, Okafor suffered hamstring injuries.
Okafor was originally a Cardinals’ fourth-round pick in 2013. He spent four seasons there before playing with the Saints in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
