Josh Mauga and the Right Place at the Right Time from The Mothership

"Any time you have injuries, it is frustrating," Mauga would later say. "Having one back-to-back like I did, I wasn't sure if I was going to get a chance to play again."

Add it all up—that string of bad luck that sometimes goes along with the human body—and it was more than one year and nine months between his last game and when the Chiefs called.

The risk was no doubt there, but to cite a fitting cliché, sometimes the best opportunities come about because of who you know, or in Mauga's case, who knew him.

In that last game he played in for the New York Jets, now-Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was coaching the linebackers. Mark DeLeone, now an assistant linebackers coach with the Chiefs, was also on staff.

AFC West Q&A: Will Melvin Gordon immediately impact Chargers? from ESPN

Adam Teicher, Kansas City Chiefs: The Chargers need a reliable running game to help quarterback Philip Rivers and they weren't going to get one without drafting Gordon, so you have to like their effort in that regard. San Diego's featured back in the two games against the Chiefs last season was Branden Oliver. He wound up presenting the Chiefs some problems, but they weren't nearly as concerned about eliminating Oliver as they will have to be with Gordon.

Top 5 pass rushers on the Texans' 2015 schedule from The Houston Texans

1. Justin Houston, Kansas City Chiefs - Week 1 (Home) - Quick...who led the league in sacks in 2014? Bunch of you said J.J. Watt, right? Unfortunately, you're wrong, because it was Houston who had 22 sacks in 2014. The only thing that could bump Houston off this list is the fact that he hasn't signed his franchise tag contract or a contract extension...

...4. Tamba Hali, Kansas City Chiefs - Week 1 (Home) - Hali has 79.5 sacks in his career but has seen the younger and more explosive Justin Houston pass him as the top rusher for the Chiefs.
