Kansas City Chiefs Roster 2021 Kansas City Chiefs Roster

0-0, T-1st AFC West

vs CLE

8:25 pm GMT , 9/12

Kansas City already has one of the best rosters top to bottom. Over the offseason they did lose some names on the defensive side, but still hold a top half defense for 2020. The NFL Draft was where they added Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Willie Gay. The offense is obviously built around Patrick Mahomes and his supporting cast. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are the primary weapons, however Mecole Hardman and Sammy Watkins give them a lot of depth. This roster is very deep, which is why the Chiefs will be Super Bowl contenders over the next few years.

Top Chiefs Roster Questions of 2020

The Chiefs are coming off Super Bowl championship after a 12-4 regular season and an AFC West division title. The head coach-quarterback duo of Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes stands ahead of any other pairing in the NFL (all due respect to Pete Carrol and Russell Wilson). The Chiefs did have some significant offseason losses as defensive contributors/starters Emmanuel Ogbah, Darron Lee, Reggie Ragland, Morris Claiborne, and Kendall Fuller are no longer on the roster. Two offensive linemen, Stefen Wisniewski and Cameron Erving will also suit up for different teams in 2020. The Chiefs had a very quiet offseason and will be relying on some young players to replace some of that lost production. The receiving corps of Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and Mecole Hardman is arguably the best collection of pass-catching talent in the NFL and rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire comes in with huge expectations as well. The Chiefs should be right back in the playoffs as one of the top seeds in the AFC.

Who is the Highest Paid Chiefs Player?

Heading into the 2020-21 season, Frank Clark is the highest-paid Chiefs' player with $12 million in guaranteed salary and a cap hit of $19 million. He and Chris Jones, who has the third-highest cap hit on the roster, form an elite defensive line tandem.

Who Owns the Kansas City Chiefs?

Clark Hunt is the current owner of the Chiefs and succeeded his father Lamar Hunt, the principal founder of the AFL and MLS, when he passed away in 2006. Lamar Hunt of Hunt's ketchup was also the founder of the Kansas City Chiefs, originally the Dallas Texans.

Who Is the Chiefs Head Coach?

Andy Reid is entering his 8th season as the Chiefs' head coach and is well-regarded as one of the best in the league. He's coming off his first Super Bowl championship and his second appearance, previously leading the Eagles to the big game.

How Much Cap Space do the Chiefs Have?

The Chiefs currently have just over $6 million in available cap space, giving them just the 5th-fewest cap room in the NFL. Frank Clark, Tyreek Hill, Chris Jones, Tyrann Mathieu, Eric Fisher, Mitchell Schwartz, Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and Anthony Hitchens all carry cap hits of over $10 million.

Is Patrick Mahomes the Best Quarterback in the NFL?

The third-year Chiefs' starting quarterback is widely regarded as the best quarterback in the NFL, having won the league MVP and Super Bowl MVP in his first two seasons as a full-time starter. Mahomes has some of the best odds to win the NFL's MVP award again this season.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Chiefs?

The Chiefs have three players who are still just 21 years old between Clyde Edwards-Helaire, the first-round rookie running back out of LSU, Lucas Niang, the third-round rookie tackle out of TCU, and Lavert Hill, the undrafted rookie free agent cornerback out of Michigan.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Chiefs?

Kansas City currently has a handful of players older than 30 years old on the roster, but Chad Henne is the team's oldest player at 35 years old. He'll serve as the backup quarterback behind Patrick Mahomes this season and would be the next man up if Mahomes misses any time.
