During Monday night’s victory against the New York Giants, the Kansas City Chiefs inducted former center Tim Grunhard into the Chiefs Ring of Honor at halftime. Grunhard spent his entire 11-year career as a member of the Chiefs organization. He was underrated as a center in the NFL and was voted to just one Pro Bowl in 1999.
Grunhard had not played for the Chiefs in 20 years and there have been some players who played after him who got inducted to the Ring of Honor. This got us thinking who should go in next.
The Chiefs have had a lot of great figures, including players as well as key contributors to the franchise, the past 30 years who are now retired. A lot of them are very deserving of being inducted into the Chiefs Ring of Honor. But who deserves to go in soon? Who should go in next and the year after?
Some of these former Chiefs are already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame while some are still waiting for that honor. Regardless, all of them had a big hand in helping the franchise. We put together a list of 10 former Chiefs who should be next in line to go in to the team’s Ring of Honor. Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of players from the list of the 25 best to never win a championship. Plus, there is one franchise contributor that might surprise some fans that made this list. Did we miss anyone? As always, let us know what you think.
