2008 Chiefs - Where are they now?



I thought it would be fun to look back at the final 2008 roster, and see where they are now.  There's been talk about how the talent was so bad when they left they didn't sign with other teams.  While that appears to be mostly true, it was interesting to see how many backup/special teams type guys did play for other teams, or players who went elsewhere and got injured. 

Anyway, heres where they are now, after the jump:
