Good morning Chiefs fans and welcome to Thursday. As far as your Kansas City Chiefs news goes, this might be the first day of the offseason. There is not much out there beyond the mentions of the 30-7 thumping when discussing the Steelers-Ravens game. The good news is I can probably start sleeping in a bit longer. Enjoy.
The Chiefs have six significant unsigned players on defense, including both of their top pass rushers, outside linebacker Tamba Hali and end Wallace Gilberry. Hali led the AFC with a career-high 14 1/2 sacks last season and added another two in the playoff loss to Baltimore.
Gilberry added seven sacks in the regular season. No other Chiefs player had more than three. Their combined total of 21 1/2 was more than half of the team’s 38.
