Former Chiefs going to Super Bowl with the Falcons

The Kansas City Chiefs will have a few of their former players in the Super Bowl this year. I don’t see any former Chiefs on the New England Patriots roster but I do see a few on the Atlanta Falcons roster.

Here are the former Chiefs I found:

CB Deji Olatoye: He was on the practice squad during the 2014 season and lasted the entire 2015 offseason.

DE Tyson Jackson: Tyson Jackson will play in a Super Bowl before the Chiefs do.

FB Patrick DiMarco: He was the Chiefs fullback in 2012 before Anthony Sherman.

LB Josh Keyes: This name sounded vaguely familiar. He spent a couple weeks on the Chiefs practice squad.

DT Jimmy Staten: He was on that deep Chiefs defensive line. Says more about the Chiefs depth on the defensive line.

As for the executives, you know about former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli who is now the assistant GM in Atlanta. I also saw Joel Collier scouting the Steelers-Chiefs game for the Falcons - he’s a former Chiefs exec who is now with the Falcons front office.

Any other former Chiefs in the Super Bowl?
