Two years ago around this time, the Chiefs were able to flip offensive lineman Yasir Durant to the New England Patriots for a future low-round pick in order to at least get something back for a player they were bound to lose to the waiver wire anyway.
As things stand now, it's difficult to see where Prince Tega Wanogho is going to fit onto the active roster for the Chiefs. Donovan Smith and Jawaan Taylor are the new presumed starters at left and right tackle, respectively, and Lucas Niang and third-round rookie Wanya Morris are young competitors waiting in the wings for greater roles.
Given the experience at tackle by other linemen as well (e.g. Darian Kinnard), it makes sense why the Chiefs would look at Wanogho as a luxury asset. Yet his development, strength, and size make him a nice prospect to continue to have around, especially for other teams with a bit less depth than the Chiefs outside on the bookends.
Wanogho was originally a sixth-round pick out of Auburn for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020, but he found his way to K.C. for the last two seasons and even played in all 17 games last year on special teams. If the Chiefs hadn't invested so much in tackles this offseason, it'd make so much more sense to keep him around, but he could also be out there on waivers in just a month and some team out there woud be smart to seew.
