Abare to Chiefs

Former Yale linebacker Bobby Abare was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.

Kansas City, which is moving from a 4-3 defense to a base 3-4, only has seven linebackers on the roster on the Chiefs' official website and even though outside linebacker was identified as a position of need entering the draft, Kansas City did not select a linebacker. Former Maine linebacker Jovan Belcher was also signed as an undrafted free agent.

Abare was Yale's leading tackler as a sophomore, junior and senior and was named first team All-Ivy three times.

Still awaiting word on the status of running back Mike McLeod and defensive linemen Joe Hathaway and Kyle Hawari, who also failed to be drafted over the weekend.

Chris Dooley, who will be a member of Yale's incoming freshman class, was named the 2008 Catholic League Scholar Athlete award at the National Football Foundation's Suffolk County (N.Y.) Chapter's annual luncheon.

Dooley earned New York State Sportswriters Association third team All-State honors at defensive line for Chaminade High of Mineola, N.Y. as a senior. He is a part of a recruiting class expected to number 29 when it is released later this week.
