Despite Mama’s early praise, he still has a long way to go in earning a spot on the Chiefs roster. Kansas City has a very experienced group at offensive line with “every offensive lineman who played even one snap last year,” returning according to chiefs.com.
Logan’s scheme in Philadelphia had shifted to 4-3 in 2016 with the hiring of Doug Pederson and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. The change in scheme translated to a dip in tackles and stops (Pro Football Focus).
