The Chiefs didn’t do much for offense in Free Agency due to a lack of cap space. However, they signed veteran players and people to provide some depth. They signed T Mike Remmers, RB Deandre Washington, TE Ricky Seals-Jones, XFL Star QB Jordan Ta’amu, and more. in the draft, they drafted RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire and OT Lucas Niang to bolster the offensive performance. Today I will breakdown each position and talk about the depth there and the grade.
At the center position, we have Austin Reiter who played center most of last season and was decent for his first year starting after being the backup of Mitch Morse. We then have Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at RG who has always been good. Then at LG, we have Andrew Wylie and Mike Remmers, they’ll battle it out to see who will start this season. And as the tackles, we have reliable Mitchell Schwartz who didn’t allow a single sack last season and is an all-pro, and LT Eric Fisher, Fisher is interesting, to say the least. He can be good and bad sometimes but we really really need him, he does take up a huge contract but without him, the Offensive Line plays pretty bad.
The next position is the Tight End. We have Starting All-Pro TE Travis Kelce who is always the reliable big guy, then backing him up we have Ricky Seals-Jones and Deon Yelder. At the Wide Reciever position, we have the Cheetah Tyreek Hill, then playoffs hero and a player who thinks he’s an alien, Sammy Watkins, then we have Demarcus Robinson coming off a mediocre season and bad playoffs, hope to see some more from him and Pro Bowl Returner and electric WR Mecole Hardman. Whenever Hardman is on the field expect a big play from him, and Byron Pringle to finish off the WRs. At RB we have Playoffs hero Damien Williams, first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Deandre Washington, Darwin Thompson, and Darrel Williams. And at the QB position and obviously have the Best QB Patrick Mahomes, and Chad Henne backing him up (for now), then Jordan Ta’amu backing him up. Overall the offense is mostly the same this season. Here are my grades.
TE – A
O line – B
