Catching up with Chiefs free agent losses

A new league year always brings roster turnover, and that is no different for the Super Bowl champions. Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen contributors from the Chiefs find new homes in free agency. Here I take a look at who the Chiefs have lost, and what their futures may look like in their new home.

Kendall Fuller – Washington

Fuller returns to an organization that he knows well, as Washington drafted him in the third round of the 2016 draft. Now a Super Bowl champion, he brings experience and leadership to a young and improving team.  Under new head coach Ron Rivera, the Redskins should be a much-improved team in 2020 and beyond.

Stefen Wisniewski – Pittsburgh

Wisniewski is heading back to his hometown. He is expected to compete for a starting spot on an offensive line that lost Ramon Foster and B.J. Finney. Wisniewski has won two Lombardi trophies over the last three years (he was on the Eagles in 2017) and now will try and win another one with his hometown squad.

Reggie Ragland – Detroit

Ragland is headed to Detroit, where he will join Jamie Collins and coach Matt Patricia. Ragland was a solid piece of the Chiefs defense over the last few seasons, and now hopes to bring that same consistency in the run game to Detroit as the Lions try to make it back to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Emmanuel Ogbah – Miami

Ogbah is taking his talents down to South Beach on a two-year deal. Ogbah led the Chiefs in sacks with 5.5 before suffering a season-ending pec injury. Ogbah will look to continue to build off of his strong 2019 campaign, all while helping improve a Miami side that finished last in the league with just 23 sacks.

Blake Bell – Dallas

The Bell-dozer is joining America’s Team on a one-year deal. Expect him to find a similar role to the one he played in Kansas City, likely being the backup tight-end behind Blake Jerwin.

Jordan Lucas – Chicago

Lucas heads to the Windy City on a one-year deal. Lucas was a special-teams player in KC, and that will likely remain the case with the Bears.
