Chiefs News for 1 February 2019
Heading into the 2019 season, the Chiefs have a projected $35 million worth of cap space. This number is $7-10 million less than earlier projections. Still, $35 million is a manageable number, especially without carrying over a significant amount of cap from 2018. According to the NFLPA, the Chiefs will have only $715,000 carry over from 2018 to the 2019 season, which is good for the second-least in the NFL.
Kelce was asked about how the game ended Thursday on 98.5 The Sports Hub’s “Felger & Mazz” radio show and admitted he thinks the playoff overtime rule should be changed to allow both teams to possess the ball.

They’re the handful of individuals, clad in red coats with a flag in hand, that help introduce the Kansas City Chiefs out onto the field each and every Sunday prior to kickoff.

For decades, the Chiefs have searched for a true star quarterback they can mold from within. General manager Brett Veach and head coach Andy Reid have accomplished what many would consider the first building block to a championship-winning roster with Mahomes. Yet the pressure to win the Super Bowl in 2019 — with Mahomes still playing under his rookie deal — is significant, as most of the prominent players on the roster are in their prime. The greatest objectives looming this offseason for Veach is to maintain the Chiefs’ explosive offense while, for the second consecutive year, rebuilding the defense to add more young talent. How will the Chiefs build around Mahomes and acquire defenders who can excel in new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s aggressive scheme?
