Tracking former Kansas City Chiefs players in NFL free agency
By Matt Conner
The Chiefs former sixth-round pick slowly blossomed during his time on the roster from developmental player to useful rotational lineman. Now he’s flourishing in new environs and after starting all 16 games for the Buccaneers in 2019, he’s re-signed with them once again.
The Chiefs were interested in bringing back Wisniewski, who eventually took over starting duties at left guard, and the New York Jets were also apparently calling. However, in the end, Wisniewski took the chance to play in his hometown with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a two-year deal.
Earlier in his career as a general manager, Brett Veach was talking about the potential he saw in defensive back Will Redmond. The Chiefs were woefully thin at the time at cornerback, but with Redmond and Keith Reaser, Veach was a believer in these under-the-radar players. Fast forward a couple years and Veach has been proven right in a weird way, as Redmond, now a safety, is earning another deal with the Green Bay Packers as a depth play.
