We know who is still available; who isn’t?

NFL: Super Bowl LIV-San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday, we went through nine members of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl team are still currently available on the open market. As they continue to look for jobs, a number of Kansas City’s champions have found new homes.

Let’s refresh...

  • TE Blake Bell - Bell played 397 offensive snaps (37.8%) for the Chiefs during 2019 regular season, as well as 209 special teams snaps (50%). Primarily serving as a blocker, Bell’s offensive output was limited; he registered only eight catches for 67 yards in 2019. His lone touchdown of the season came in the divisional round against the Houston Texans. The Chiefs reportedly wanted him back, but now, for the second year in a row, the tight end position behind Travis Kelce becomes a battle to watch at training camp. New home: Dallas Cowboys
  • OL Cam Erving - The Chiefs traded for Erving back in 2017, and he spent the last three years with the Chiefs. Erving started four games for the Chiefs in 2017, leading the team to sign him to a contract extension that offseason. That contract included this 2020 option year, which the Chiefs declined. In total, Erving started 25 regular-season games — including eight in 2019 — during his three-year stay in Kansas City. New home: Dallas Cowboys
  • CB Kendall Fuller - Originally slated for the Chiefs’ slot cornerback role by Steve Spagnuolo, Fuller missed a chunk of games during the middle of the 2019 regular season. When he returned, he played as a safety, and his contributions there became even more important when the team lost rookie Juan Thornhill in Week 17. Years from now, Fuller’s time in Kansas City will be highlighted by two factoids: he was traded to the Chiefs for Alex Smith, and he made the championship-sealing interception in Super Bowl LIV. Fuller signed a massive deal in the offseason to return to Washington. New home: Washington
  • S Jordan Lucas - Lucas joined the Chiefs in 2018 by way of a trade with the Miami Dolphins. Endearingly nicknamed on these pages as “The Lucas Locomotive,” he carved a key special-teams role out in 2019. New home: Chicago Bears
  • DL Emmanuel Ogbah - It’s fair to say the Chiefs won this trade last offseason. Former Kansas City general manager John Dorsey sent Ogbah to the Chiefs in exchange for one of his former picks, safety Eric Murray. Ogbah’s usage ramped up during the middle of the year while Alex Okafor was out of the lineup due to injury. Ogbah contributed until he suffered a torn pec in the team’s final loss of the season Week 10 against the Tenessee Titans. Ogbah signed a nice-sized deal in the offseason to take his talents to South Beach. New home: Miami Dolphins
  • OL Stefen Wisniewski - Andy Reid liked Wisniewski’s two starts at left guard so much, he left him in for the Super Bowl run even with Andrew Wylie good to go. With Wisniewski heading to play for his hometown Steelers, the Chiefs signed veteran Mike Remmers, who general manager Brett Veach views — in his own words — as a “comparable player.” New home: Pittsburgh Steelers
