Position Listing
Jimmy Staten
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Phillip Gaines
News
Chiefs CB Phillip Gaines suffered a sprained knee Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. 

Gaines picked up two tackles before departing, giving him a total of six in two games this year. He's off the Individual Defensive Player radar at this point.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Rakeem Nunez-Roches
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Cairo Santos
News
Santos finished the regular season off Sunday against the Raiders by knocking home two of his three field goal attempt, and added another three extra points.

Santos tied for fifth among kickers, converting 30 attempts on the season, but did so while just making 81.1 percent of his attempts, ranking 30th in that category. There's no talk that the Brazilian is in danger of losing his job, but it could be a bit of a concern for the club heading into next season. However, a strong showing in the playoffs could give him some job stability for 2016.

Albert Wilson
News
Wilson (hamstring) is active for Saturday's divisional round game in New England, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Wilson wrapped up the week with back-to-back full practices, dispelling any thoughts that his hamstring will hinder him against the Patriots. Helping his cause further is Jeremy Maclin's high ankle sprain, which could place Wilson in Alex Smith's cross hairs far more often.

Orie Lemon
News
The Chiefs signed linebacker Orie Lemon to the practice squad Wednesday. Lemon takes the spot of Nico Johnson, who was signed to the Bengals' active roster Wednesday.

D.J. Alexander
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Marcus Peters
News
Peters was named Defensive Rookie of the Year at Saturday's NFL Awards Ceremony, Connor Orr of NFL.com reports.

Peters was the eighth defensive player and third cornerback selected in the 2015 draft, but he outperformed his peers in a big way by collecting 45 of a possible 50 votes for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. He was tied with Cincinnati's Reggie Nelson for the league lead in interceptions with eight, and Peters returned two of those picks for touchdowns. Peters looks to be one of the steals of last year's draft and figures to be a key member of Kansas City's stout defense for years to come.

Jeff Allen
News
The Chiefs signed defensive back Jamell Fleming from the Ravens' practice squad Friday, to take the place of Jeff Allen on the active roster. Allen was placed on injured reserve following elbow surgery. 
Ron Parker
News
Parker finished the 2015 campaign with 78 tackles (67 solo), five sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble.

Parker split 2014 between cornerback and safety, but the emergence of first-round draft pick Marcus Peters across from Sean Smith allowed him to play alongside Eric Berry this season. He took advantage of the opportunity, posting another solid season for the Chiefs in a secondary that could be scary for years to come, with Parker finishing up his first campaign of a five-year extension he signed in March of last year.

Ross Travis
No Updates
De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas said he is still trying to recover from a concussion, the Kansas City Star reports.

The Chiefs placed Thomas on the non-football illness list before Week 17, with head coach Andy Reid saying that the slot receiver's absence was not related to his concussion. Thomas apparently disagrees, hinting at significant discord between the player and organization. He still has two years remaining on his rookie contract, but it's no longer clear that Thomas will be back with the Chiefs in 2016.

Fred Williams
News
The Chiefs have cut ties with wide receiver Fred Williams on Saturday, a source told The Topeka Capital-Journal. Williams has never appeared in an NFL game.
Mike DeVito
News
Chiefs defensive end Mike DeVito agreed to a pay cut to help the team with its salary-cap situation. 

DeVito's original deal cost the Chiefs $5.4 million against the cap. His restructuring reduced that figure to $2.9 million, according to Pro Football Talk and the Kansas City Star

DeVito's new contract is structured so that he has the opportunity to earn back most of his pay cut through incentive bonuses. 

Daniel Munyer
No Updates
Dezman Moses
News
Linebacker Dezman Moses has signed with the Chiefs, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Moses missed the 2014 season after playing for the Chiefs in 2013. He has played in 29 games, recording 32 total tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Tyler Bray
News
Bray (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Bray has been sidelined for the beginning of the 2015 season due to an ACL injury suffered while playing basketball. There's no indication of when he may return, but it's also unlikely he'll have a roster spot even when healthy.

Injury

Ben Grubbs
News
The Chiefs traded this year's fifth-round pick to the Saints for guard Ben Grubbs, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. A two-time Pro Bowler, Grubbs has started 118 games since entering the league in 2007.

With the trade, the Saints saved $3.6 million against the cap, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Injury
Zach Fulton
News
The Chiefs have ruled quarterback Alex Smith (spleen) and cornerback Phillip Gaines (illness) out for Sunday's Week 17 divisional showdown against the Chargers.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder), running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) and guard Zach Fulton (foot, toe) were labeled questionable. Meanwhile, tight end Anthony Fasano (knee), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), linebacker/defensive end Josh Martin (hand) and inside linebacker Joe Mays (knee) were deemed probable.

Jamaal Charles
News
Charles appears to be ahead of schedule in the rehabilitation process from a torn ACL in October, the Kansas City Star reports. "That's more of a medical assessment," general manager John Dorsey said. "If they say he's ahead of schedule, then I believe he's ahead of schedule, which is a positive for this organization."

While Dorsey didn't specify whether or not he believed Charles would be ready training camp, the fact that he's ahead of schedule in his recovery certainly bodes well for his chances. The star running back's status should be further updated as the season approaches, but Charles should be set to retake his workhorse role for the Chiefs again in 2016 when healthy. The emergence of Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware behind him also provides the team with depth to rest the veteran Charles should they choose to turn to more of a rotation out of the backfield.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Michael Liedtke
No Updates
Charcandrick West
News
West gained 61 yards on 17 carries and scored a rushing touchdown in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. He also secured two of four targets for 15 yards.

The 24-year-old received his highest amount of carries since Week 11 versus the Broncos, and was reasonably productive with the opportunity. West capped off a 16-play, 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter with a one-yard option pitch that brought Kansas City within seven, but the ensuing onside kick was recovered by Rob Gronkowski. West's all-purpose ability was a revelation for the Chiefs in the wake of Jamaal Charles' season-ending knee injury, and the second-year pro serves as excellent insurance in the event Charles is not ready for the start of the 2016 season.

Sean Smith
News
Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith (suspension) was reinstated to the Chiefs' 53-man roster on Tuesday.

Smith completed his three-game ban that was levied after he was arrested on a DUI charge over the summer. He should immediately slide back into a starting role for Sunday's game against the Bengals, upgrading a Chiefs secondary that was routinely gashed by the Packers' Aaron Rodgers in a Week 3 loss.

Tavon Rooks
News
The Cardinals shuffled their roster on Friday.

The team announced it released tackle Tavon Rooks and signed guard Jon Halapio .

Halapio, a sixth-round pick a season ago, was released by the Broncos in May. Rooks was a sixth-round pick by the Saints last year and spent the entire year on their practice squad before signing with the Cardinals in January.

Aaron Murray
News
The following players for the Chiefs have been deemed inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers: quarterback Aaron Murray, wide receiver Donnie Avery, offensive linemen Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Nick Williams, cornerback Marcus Cooper and running back Charcandrick West.

Jaye Howard
News
Howard collected 57 tackles (21 solo), 5.5 sacks one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in the 2015 regular season.

Howard really took to his role this season outperforming his other three campaigns combined. Still in his rookie contract, Howard will now enter the offseason an unrestricted free agent, and could receive several offers from teams looking for a man of his size (6-foot-3, 301 pounds) to clog up the middle.

Reid Fragel
News
The Buccaneers claimed offensive tackle Reid Fragel off waivers Monday, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Fragel was claimed off waivers from the Falcons.
Dee Ford
News
Ford (concussion/wrist) is listed as active Saturday in Houston, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Ford suffered a concussion in the season finale yet progressed through the protocol quickly, completing full practice sessions both Thursday and Friday. The second-year pro is merely a situational LB, though, after totaling four sacks among 23 tackles this season.

Frank Zombo
News
Several Chiefs who were on the injury report are active for the game at San Francisco. They include linebackers Tamba Hali (knee) and Frank Zombo (hamstring), cornerbacks Sean Smith (groin) and Marcus Cooper (knee), and running back De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring).
Mitch Morse
News
Chiefs rookie guard Mitch Morse is getting his feet wet during the team's minicamp this week, per ESPN.com.

Morse, a second-round pick by the Chiefs this year, has been getting reps with the first-team offensive line during minicamp.

Chris Conley
News
Conley caught two passes on thee targets for 22 yards in the regular season finale against the Raiders.

Conley benefited from Jeremy Maclin's brief departure from Sunday's contest, and caught his first pass since Nov. 22 against the Chargers. Considered a product coming out of Georgia, the third-round pick didn't make much of an impact in his rookie campaign, finishing with just 17 catches for 199 yards and a touchdown. Still, he remains the team's third receiver behind Jeremy Maclin and Albert Wilson, and another training camp could provide the youngster enough to pass Wilson on the depth chart if he can turn that potential into reality.

Dontari Poe
News
Poe (ankle) is active Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Good news for the Chiefs as they try to slow down Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers rushing attack. If Poe needs a little more rest than usual during the game, Jaye Howard would likely rotate in at nose tackle.

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris caught seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in the 2015 regular season.

Harris didnt' see much action this season despite being the second tight end behind Travis Kelce. He did finally collect his first career touchdown in Week 17 against the Raiders, and the Chiefs thought enough of him to extend his contract three more seasons. Harris seems likely to serve in a similar role next season, limiting his fantasy value behind star tight end Travis Kelce.

Justin March-Lillard
News
The Chiefs placed linebacker Justin March (knee) on injured reserve and quarterback Tyler Bray on the non-football injury list Tuesday.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Tyvon Branch
News
The Chiefs have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with string safety Tyvon Branch on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported that the deal could be worth a max of $4 million, with a base salary that incldes in-game bonuses of $2 million.

"We are excited we were able to reach a deal with Tyvon and bring him to Kansas City," general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. "He is a physical player who we feel can help our defense. We're looking forward to having him."

The 28-year-old Branch has played seven seasons in the NFL, totaling 476 tackles, 20 passes defensed and four interceptions in his career. He will now stay in the AFC West, after he was released bu the Raiders last week.

Nick Williams
News
The Falcons re-signed fullback Patrick DiMarco and defensive end Cliff Matthews, the team announced on Tuesday. 

DiMarco was an exclusive-rights free agent, and Matthews was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March. 

DiMarco had 17 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in two seasons with the Falcons. Matthews has appeared in 32 games, mainly on special teams, in four years with the team. 

The Falcons also brought in WR Nick Williams, a former Redskin. 

Daniel Sorensen
News
The Chiefs declared wideout Donnie Avery (groin), quarterback Aaron Murray, safety Daniel Sorensen, cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring), center Eric Kush, offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and linebacker Josh Martin (hamstring, knee) inactive for Sunday's game at Buffalo.
Brian Parker
News
Parker could see an extended run Sunday against the Broncos.

Parker saw his first game action with the Chiefs two weeks ago against the Lions, making key blocks on a play that led to a 10-yard touchdown run for De'Anthony Thomas. However, he didn't make have any grabs in the contest, and probably won't do enough even in his expanded role to be worth consideration in fantasy leagues.

Knile Davis
News
Davis was limited to six special teams snaps in Sunday's regular season finale against the Raiders.

A once rising backup, Davis dropped like a rock on the Chiefs depth chart this season, losing out on snaps to the likes of Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware following the season-ending injury to star running back Jamaal Charles in Week 5. While he's still under contract with the Chiefs through the 2016 campaign, Davis finished 2015 with just 28 caries for 72 yards and two grabs for 24 yards, and doesn't appear to be a large part of the team's plan for next season.

Da'Ron Brown
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Eric Berry
News
Berry finished the 2015 campaign with 61 tackles (55 solo) and two interceptions.

After missing a the 2014 campaign due to a bout with cancer, Berry emerged better than ever, and returned to his previous form in 2015. He'll likely put his name in the hat for the Comeback Player of the Year award alongside teammate Derrick Johnson, but he will enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. It seems likely the Chiefs will make a push to re-sign Berry, but there's no guarantee he will be back in Kansas City for 2016.

Darrin Reaves
News
The Chiefs parted ways with one running back and signed another Sunday. The team announced it waived running back LaVance Taylor, while signing running back Darrin Reaves.
Jeremy Maclin
News
Maclin (ankle) secured two of three targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-20 divisional round loss to the Patriots.

The seven-year veteran was able to play despite being considered highly questionable all week long, but was not much of a factor. Maclin was heavily out-targeted by fellow wideouts Albert Wilson and Chris Conley, as well as by tight end Travis Kelce. Although the season concluded for him in less than ideal fashion, Maclin proved to be an outstanding free-agent acquisition in the 2015 campaign. He managed a career-high in receptions (87), while posting the second-best totals of his career in yardage and touchdown catches.

Jamell Fleming
News
The Chiefs ruled tight end defensive end Allen Bailey (concussion), wideout Junior Hemingway (concussion), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring) tight end Richard Gordon, quarterback Aaron Murray, center Eric Kush and offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif inactive for the game at Arizona.
Marcus Cooper
News
The Chiefs listed quarterback Alex Smith as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chargers.

Smith is suffering from a lacerated spleen which is expected to keep him out for six weeks.

Other inactives included Donnie Avery, Phillip Gaines, Marcus Cooper, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Nick Williams.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) and running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.

Frankie Hammond
News
Hammond was promoted to the 53-man roster Saturday.

Hammond has been on the Chiefs' practice squad, but with De'Anthony Thomas out Sunday against Buffalo, he'll join the active roster to serve as the fifth receiver. The Florida product saw time in all 16 games for Kansas City last season, catching four passes on 12 targets for 45 yards.

James O'Shaughnessy
News
O'Shaughnessy (foot) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

O'Shaughnessy, a fifth-round rookie, had six catches for 87 yards in seven games. Now that he's done for the season, Demetrius Harris will serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce.

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Donald Stephenson
News
Chiefs coach Andy Reid made the announcement Monday former No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher is moving from left tackle to right tackle to begin the 2015 season. Donald Stephenson is taking over at left tackle for Kansas City.

“We’re going to play the five best, and Fish gives us a whole lot of flexibility, he can play any position on the offensive line, and play at Pro Bowl caliber,” Reid said, per The Kansas City Star.

Ramik Wilson
News
Chiefs rookie linebacker Ramik Wilson seemed to make an early impression during rookie minicamp, especially on pass defense. Wilson had an interception during a live session Sunday and came back with two more interceptions Monday, according to the team's official website.

"He's got strong hands and he's got a knack for making plays here,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of Wilson. “He's done a nice job, a very nice job."

While Wilson performed well in rookie minicamp, he is still eager to improve.

"I've made a couple good plays here and there, but I had a couple in error,” he said. “It's never going to be perfect, but I just have to correct the little things and once that's taken care of, I can take my game to another level."

Larry Duvernay-Tardif
News
The Chiefs listed quarterback Alex Smith as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chargers.

Smith is suffering from a lacerated spleen which is expected to keep him out for six weeks.

Other inactives included Donnie Avery, Phillip Gaines, Marcus Cooper, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Nick Williams.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) and running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.

Steven Nelson
News
Chiefs rookie defensive backs Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson will be absent from team activities until the middle of June, according to ESPN.

The duo will be absent because NFL rules state a rookie is prohibited from practicing with his NFL team, except for minicamps, until his college class graduates -- regardless if the player is still enrolled in class.

Peters attended Washington, while Nelson went to Oregon State. Those schools don’t finish for their current academic session until the Chiefs have completed the last of their 10 regular offseason practices June 12.

Peters and Nelson are set to rejoin the Chiefs for the start of a three-day, full-squad minicamp June 16.

"You wish they were here just for the reps," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "But can it be done when they're not here? It can be done. You’ve got to do some different things. You've got to communicate with them, obviously, as a coach and go through whatever you can go through with them and talk to them, make sure they stay up on that. That’s what we'll do."

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce signed a five-year, $46 million extension with the Chiefs on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

The Chiefs made Kelce the second-highest paid tight end in the league on Friday, with $20.5 million of the extension guaranteed. The deal looks him up through 2021. Kelce was the Chiefs' second-leading receiver in 2015 with 72 receptions for 875 yards and five touchdowns.

Josh Mauga
News
Mauga finished the 2015 regular season with 58 tackles (46 solo), one sack and two interceptions.

Playing alongside Derrick Johnson, Mauga made a slight impact of his own on the inside, thous he was no where near his counterpart's 116 tackles. It's possible the Chiefs will look to add some depth on the inside prior to the 2016 campaign, but Mauga is currently in line to retain the starting role.

Allen Bailey
News
Bailey (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Bailey was able to practice fully all week, so it appears as if the defensive end could make his first return to the field since Week 8. Bailey will likely take over for the injured Mike DeVito, who was ruled out Friday after missing practice all week due to multiple injuries.

Spencer Ware
News
Ware (ankle) did not register a carry or reception in Sunday's 27-20 divisional round loss to the Patriots.

Despite being declared active for the contest, Ware saw backfield mate Charcandrick West and Knile Davis tally all of the running back carries. While he certainly endured a disappointing end to the season, Ware revived his career in Kansas City, tallying an impressive 5.6 yards per carry and six touchdowns over nine games.

Paul Fanaika
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes offensive guard Paul Fanaika will do well for the Chiefs, the team he signed with early in free agency, according to the Kansas City Star

Fanaika signed a three-year, $8.1 million deal. Arians said the Cardinals and Fanaika both needed a fresh start but that the offensive guard should do well with his new team. 

“He’s had some down games in some big games (for us),” Arians said, “but sometimes we’ll overlook (that) and say, ‘Wow, he’s going to make that much money? God bless you. Go ahead.’ But I think he’ll be a good fit in that offense.”

Injury
Laurence Gibson
News
Cowboys seventh-round pick Laurence Gibson underwent surgery on a broken finger and will not take part in either OTAs or mini-camp as he tries to make the roster as a tackle, per the Dallas Morning-News

Gibson, who went to Virginia Tech, is expected to be ready for July's training camp.

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said Thursday that the team can afford to keep quarterback Chase Daniel in 2015, the Kansas City Star reports.

However, Dorsey also gave no indication that Daniel is definitely in the team's plans moving forward. The backup quarterback is set to count $4.8 million against the team's cap in the final year of his three-year deal, while the Chiefs would pick up $3.8 million in cap room by releasing him.

Tamba Hali
News
Hali finished the 2015 regular season amassing 6.5 sacks, 48 tackles (39 solo) and seven tackles for loss.

Hali added two forced fumbles to the stat line, and managed to play in 15 out of 16 games despite dealing with knee and thumb issues. The 10-year vet will enter the offseason an impending free agent, and it wouldn't be surprising if he's played his last contest for the Chiefs following former first-round pick Dee Ford's emergence in 2015.

Jah Reid
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Jason Avant
News
Avant finished the 2015 season with just 15 catches for 119 yards on 24 targets.

The veteran wideout struggled to find the field consistently, and averaged less than a grab per game as a result. He signed just one-year contract with the Chiefs before the 2015 campaign, and could be a candidate for retirement in the offseason if he can't find work elsewhere.

David King
News
The Seahawks have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl: B.J. Daniels, Marcus Burley, Patrick Lewis, Keavon Milton, David King, Garry Gilliam and Kevin Norwood, the team announced.

Gilliam caught a fake field goal touchdown during the NFC Championship Game for Seattle.

The game is currently pick'em between Seattle and New England.

Husain Abdullah
News
Abdullah (concussion) is listed as active Saturday at Houston, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Abdullah required five games to recover fully from a concussion, but expect him to provide support to the secondary upon his return.

Alex Smith
News
Smith completed 29 of 50 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. He also gained 44 yards on nine rushes.

The veteran was productive overall but could only manage 4.9 yards per completion on the afternoon, a poor recipe for trying to topple the Patriots in their home stadium in the playoffs. Smith did have No.1 receiver Jeremy Maclin at his disposal after the receiver was questionable all week with knee and ankle injuries, but only targeted him three times on the afternoon. He did manage completions to an astounding 10 different players, and did not turn the ball over. Despite the disappointing conclusion, the 11-year veteran did enjoy a successful 2015 campaign, throwing for a career-high 3,486 yards and tossing 20 touchdown passes.

Anthony Sherman
News
Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman saw just ten offensive snaps in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Sherman saw a dramatic drop in snaps from 25 in Week 1 to 10 in Week 2. Given the lack of production out of the fullback spot, it shouldn't have too much impact on his fantasy value, but it could be an indicator that the Chiefs plan to move in a different direction offensively.

Justin Houston
News
Houston finished the 2015 regular season with 7.5 sacks, 25 tackles and two interceptions,.

While Houston was unable to reach double-digits in sacks for the first time in the past four seasons, much of that can be attributed to a knee injury that kept him out of five contests. Finishing just the first year of a six-year, $101 million contract, Houston will once again serve among the Chiefs' linebacking corps in 2016, and should be a candidate to reach double-digit sacks once again.

Eric Fisher
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Derrick Johnson
News
Johnson finished the 2015 regular season with 116 tackles (95 solo), adding four sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Johnson cleared the team's next closest (Ron Parker) in tackles by 38 tackles, finishing 16th in the league in that category. The veteran certainly put himself in contention for comeback player of the year, but will enter free agency in the offseason if the Chiefs don't re-sign him before then. While the team has excess bodies on the outside now that Dee Ford has emerged, there's still little depth in the middle. The Chiefs will have an estimated $32.8 million in cap space this offseason, but some big decisions to make with guys like Eric Berry and Sean Smith set to hit free agency in addition to Johnson.
