And no, not in a “he really inspired them” kind of way.
As you’re probably aware, Tony Gonzalez is commonly considered the greatest tight end in NFL history, and is still the Chiefs all-time leading receiver. But after 2008 the Chiefs were bad and didn’t look to be going anywhere fast, so he requested a trade.
The Chiefs traded Gonzalez to the Falcons for a 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft. With that pick the Chiefs selected Javier Arenas. Arenas spent 3 years with the Chiefs and while at one point he was considered one of the top slot corners in the league, Andy Reid apparently didn’t agree and shipped Arenas to the Arizona Cardinals in his first offseason in Kansas City in 2013.
In return for Arenas the Chiefs got fullback Anthony Sherman, who is still with the team to this day, including 7 offensive and 18 special teams snaps in Super Bowl LIV.
So when you put it altogether, the Gonzalez trade managed to help the Chiefs win a Super Bowl.
