The Chiefs have had issues at pass rusher for the last few years as they've searched for consistent playmakers off the edge to complement Chris Jones along the interior. But one constant presence who has been a force since he arrived in Kansas City, someone who has done his best to be a part of the solution, is Mike Danna.
It's been three years since the Chiefs selected Mike Danna in a surprise pick in the fifth round out of Michigan. Danna was a rotational lineman who didn't have flashy stats in his one year in the Big Ten, but scouts knew that he'd dominated at Central Michigan before transferring and Wolverines coaches raved about his work ethic and potential.
Since arriving in K.C., the Chiefs have trusted Danna more and more with a snaps played rate of 38 percent in 2020 and a 54 percent rate in 2022. In that span, he's put up 39 pressures and 10.5 sacks while providing solid work against the run.
Danna is not going to break the bank as a free agent, but teams who need depth and furrther production on the edge with money to burn will offer more than what the Chiefs can do here, especially as less-successful teams try to import players with championship experience.
