Sometimes a team's ability to hold things together presents the biggest possible win of all. If you ask Pro Football Focus, that's the primary reason why they've awarded the Kansas City Chiefs an "A" grade when assessing the team's offseason moves.

Coming off of a second consecutive Super Bowl victory, the Chiefs were facing some significant questions about their ability to keep together enough talent for a never-before-achieved three-peat. The primary concern was the lack of a long-term deal for defensive star Chris Jones.

Beyond that, the Chiefs also faced positional concerns at wide receiver, offensive tackle, defensive tackle (especially depending on Jones' fate), and running back among other positions. In addition, the Chiefs had another expensive defensive star emerging in cornerback L'Jarius Sneed.

With the dust largely settled on the team's roster construction for a new season, most of those concerns have been alleviated and the Chiefs are once again loaded for another run toward a championship. That's why Trevor Sikkema of PFF lauded their offseason moves.

Specifically, Sikkema loved their ability to retain Jones and praised the first five rounds of their draft class. He also thought the signing of Marquise Brown in free agency was a good way to bolster a position of need.

For the sake of comparison, Sikkema awarded an "A" or greater to only six total teams, including the Chiefs. The Detroit Lions earned the only "A+" with the four other "A" grades bestowed upon the Washington Commanders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles, and Chicago Bears.

The Chiefs can still tinker with the roster, and given ongoing concerns on offense at running back and wideout, some fans are hoping further moves are made to strengthen those positions going into training camp. However Veach has enjoyed a solid offseason and the Chiefs look solid at almost every position.
