Here's a complete rundown of players who are scheduled to hit free agency in March from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Every NFL team deals with free agent losses every offseason as contracts expire and players anticipate the payday they've been dreaming of their entire lives. For the Kansas City Chiefs, however, it could be an offseason filled with significant losses because two players scheduled to be unrestricted free agents in less than one month are the team's two best defenders.

Both defensive tackle Chris Jones and cornerback L'Jarius Sneed are ready to hit the open market and both deserve to make as much as possible. That also leaves the door open for their departures, which would devastate the team's defense even as they search for answers on the offensive side as well.

Speaking of the offensive side, the Chiefs are facing the real possibility of losing some help on that side of the ball as well. Let's look at the full list of players scheduled to hit free agency.

Unrestricted free agents for 2024

The players listed here are free to sign with any team at any time once the new league year has begun. They're listed in alphabetical order.

  • Nick Allegretti, OL
  • Blake Bell, TE
  • Deon Bush, S
  • Mike Danna, DL
  • Mike Edwards, S
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB
  • Blaine Gabbert, QB
  • Willie Gay Jr., LB
  • Mecole Hardman, WR
  • Richie James, WR
  • Chris Jones, DL
  • Jerick McKinnon, RB
  • Derrick Nnadi, DL
  • Donovan Smith, OL
  • L'Jarius Sneed, DB
  • Tommy Townsend, P
  • Drue Tranquill, LB
  • Turk Wharton, DL
  • James Winchester, LS

Restricted free agents for 2024

Restricted free agents are players who are free to sign with other teams, but the Chiefs get the right of first refusal to match it. These are decent bets to return—that is, if the Chiefs want to use a roster spot on them.

  • Jody Fortson, TE
  • Malik Herring, DL
  • Prince Tega Wanogho, OL

Exclusive right free agents for 2024

Players termed as ERFAs are only able to re-sign with their team for next season and that's only if the Chifes offer them a deal to accept or reject. Again, these are good bets to return.

  • Mike Caliendo, OL
  • Jack Cochrane, LB
  • Nazeeh Johnson, DB
