Though Gilberry's production as a reserve was significant, Kansas City has high hopes for Allen Bailey moving forward. The rookie out of Miami averaged close to 20 snaps per game last season pairing with Gilberry and veteran Amon Gordon as a sub-package reserve. Meanwhile, Gilberry's snaps decreased by 30% from the previous season.
