At inside linebacker I would have even considered keeping Smith on the active roster over D.J. Alexander. Alexander is one of Dave Toub’s key special teams players so that’s why he won out, but I believe if the Chiefs should have injuries at the position they would be more likely to play Smith on defense than they would Alexander.

That does it for me this week, Addicts. I’m pretty happy with the team that the Chiefs have put together for 2016. I think they have a chance to be really good this year. If Justin Houston comes back healthy then they may even have a chance to do something special this year.

If Houston doesn’t come back at all then their ultimate success may be determined by how well they can piece together a pass rush. I’d love to hear what you think of the Chiefs moves and 53 man roster in the comments below.

I can’t believe that next week I actually get to write about a regular season Chiefs game. Football season is officially upon us!

Until then, thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
