The Greatest Kansas City Chiefs, By the Numbers: #41

Your favorite series is back for bye week! Or rather, the week after the bye.

I know how much everyone loves reading about completely obscure former Chiefs players so here is another heaping helping of Greatest Chiefs, By the Numbers.

#41 has potentially the most unknown players out of any of the numbers we've been through so far. How many of these guys do you honestly know who they are?

They're so obscure in fact that I can't even find a large enough picture of one of them to post on the front page.

  • S Herb Christopher (1979-82)
  • S Scott Connot (2004)
  • S Keith Crawford (1998)
  • CB Pat Dennis (2000-01)
  • RB Doug Dressler (1975)
  • RB James Evans (1987)
  • S Kenny Hill (1989)
  • WR Bruce Jankowski (1971-72)
  • RB Keyvan Jenkins (1988)
  • CB Darrius Johnson (2003)
  • CB Anthony Parker (1991)
  • RB Woodie Pippens (1987)
  • S Reggie Tongue (1996-99)
  • S David Whitmore (1993-94)
