Stefen Wisniewski was a familiar face before he was officially a member of the Chiefs roster.
Originally drafted by the Oakland Raiders back in 2011 in the second orund, Wisniewski was a tough lineman to face twice a year in the AFC West for the Chiefs for a few years before he left Oakland and decided to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015. Wisniewski would hop around a couple teams before landing with the Chiefs in 2019 as a midseason signing.
Wisniewski ended up playing in 11 games for the Chiefs during the team’s Super Bowl run, but the most important part of it all was that he took over the starting left guard spot down the stretch and held onto the role during the postseason, including every playoff win in that historic season. For that reason, Wisniewski will always be a fan favorite.
After the season, the Chiefs wanted to bring him back, but he chose to sign a two-year deal in free agency with the Pittsburgh Steelers, seeing as they were his hometown team. Unfortunately he would be released from Pittsburgh and the Chiefs took advantage and re-signed him for the 2020 season. He remained in a substitute role down the stretch but started the Super Bowl when it was clear that the line needed to make a few changes to compensate for losses due to injury.
