28. Jim Lynch

Lynch goes under the radar in the annals of history because he played alongside Willie Lanier and Bobby Bell. However, Lynch was a tremendous outside linebacker who played with the Chiefs from 1967-77. Lynch only made the Pro Bowl once, but was consistently mentioned among the best during his playing days.

While in Kansas City, Lynch helped to bring home a championship and ultimately amassed 17 interceptions and 14 fumble recoveries. Lynch was inducted into the College Hall of Fame in 1992, two years after being put into the Chiefs Hall of Fame.

27. Tony Richardson

In many cities, a fullback who rarely carried or caught the ball would be completely forgotten. Not the case in Kansas City. Richardson was truly special at his position, breaking into the league as an undrafted free agent with the Chiefs in 1995 and playing 11 seasons with the team. During that time, Richardson led the way for both Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson.

Richardson was a three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro while also landing on the NFL’s 2000s All-Decade Team. Richardson also took home the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2010 while with the New York Jets and the “Whizzer” White NFL Man of the Year award.
