Making The Roster: (5)
Fighting To Get A Spot:
The Chiefs invested pretty significantly at defensive end this offseason. Charles Omenihu was one of their biggest free agent investments and they spent their first-round draft pick on Felix Anudike-Uzomah and a 5th-round pick on BJ Thompson. If they think both rookies can contribute early on this could be the unit they role with. I also wouldn’t rule out them signing a veteran like Carlos Dunlap or Frank Clark back and trying to get BJ Thompson on the practice squad (or he could come down with a convenient “injury” before roster cuts). I like Truman Jones’s potential too, but I think he’s a long shot to make the roster. It feels like the clock may have run out on Herring and Kaindoh.
