Blake Bell

When naming Chiefs players who have been on all three Super Bowl winning teams, Blake Bell might be someone fans forget about. Bell hasn't been the flashiest player, never having more than 100 yards receiving in a single season but the coaching staff and players clearly like having him around.

As of this writing, Bell has not signed anywhere yet and with the Chiefs drafting a tight end, Jared Wiley, in the fourth round, it doesn't look like the former Oklahoma Sooner is coming back to Kansas City in 2024. That might be for the best.

Tommy Townsend

Punters need love too and Tommy Townsend received a lot of it while in Kansas City. Townsend was a major factor throughout the playoff run, pinning teams deep and the defense then taking it from there.

So why is Townsend on this list then if he was so valuable? Well because he went on to sign a two-year deal with the Houston Texans worth $6 million, which was probably a bit too much for KC to spend on a punter. They went on to sign Matt Araiza in the offseason for significantly cheaper.
