The Chiefs have six significant unsigned players on defense, including both of their top pass rushers, outside linebacker Tamba Hali and end Wallace Gilberry. Hali led the AFC with a career-high 14 1/2 sacks last season and added another two in the playoff loss to Baltimore.
Gilberry added seven sacks in the regular season. No other Chiefs player had more than three. Their combined total of 21 1/2 was more than half of the team’s 38.
“Today, I woke up at 5 this morning, me and my parents, and we got to packing,” McCluster said. “I’m headed back to Florida. I didn’t want to go home so soon. But I had a great season here in Kansas City. I’m ready to get back and anxious to get back. Right now, I’m going to go home and enjoy some family.”
Ravens running back Willis McGahee said his tomahawk chop after scoring on a 25-yard touchdown run in Sunday’s 30-7 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Wildcard playoff game was a jab at the Chiefs fans at Arrowhead Stadium.
One of his teammates thinks there’s another reason.
Wide receiver Anquan Boldin joked that McGahee was actually paying homage to Florida State because he wished he could have played for the Seminoles.
