  LB Reggie Ragland is drawing rave reviews from the team's general manager. "I think we're all excited about him and we think he can be a star," Brett Veach said during the team's pre-draft press conference, via the team's website. "We were very fortunate to be able to execute that trade."


Apr 15 2018 - Kerwynn Williams
  The Kansas City Chiefs will sign free agent RB Kerwynn Williams to a one-year deal, NFL Network reported Sunday. Williams visited the Chiefs last week. He spent the past four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. Last year, he had 120 rushes for 426 yards with one touchdown in 16 games. Kareem Hunt is the starter in Kansas City, which also has Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West and Damien Williams competing for touches in the backfield.


Apr 10 2018 - Tim Wright
  TE Tim Wright signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs in a picture he posted of himself on Instagram. "It's Official!! I Am Now A Kansas City Chief!!" posted Wright, who hasn't played in an NFL game since 2015. The team has not made a formal announcement and Wright did not reveal the terms of his deal. He is expected to provide depth behind Travis Kelce and Demetrius Harris in Kansas City. Wright missed all of the 2016 season with a torn ACL and spent part of the 2017 preseason with the Detroit Lions before being released. The 27-year-old recorded a career-high 54 receptions for 571 yards during his rookie season in 2013 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Wright collected six touchdowns with New England the following season and has 89 catches for 907 yards with 13 scores during 41 career contests with the Buccaneers, Patriots and Detroit Lions.


Apr 3 2018 - Robert Golden
  S Robert Golden was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed for Golden, who spent the past six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was released last month in a cost-savings move. Golden, 27, appeared in all 16 games last season, making two starts, and recorded 19 tackles with one interception and two passes defensed. An undrafted free agent out of Arizona in 2012, Golden had a career-best 40 tackles in 2015 and started a career-high seven games in 2016. The 5-foot-11, 202-pound Golden also served as special teams captain for two seasons in Pittsburgh.


Mar 30 2018 - Nelson Spruce
  WR Nelson Spruce signed with the Chiefs on Friday. He has never played in a regular-season NFL game and was removed from the Chicago Bears' practice squad in January.


Mar 30 2018 - Matt McGloin
  QB Matt McGloin signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. McGloin was on the rosters of the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans last season, but he did not play in a regular-season game. Before that he spent four years with the Oakland Raiders. He played in three games, including one start, for the Raiders in 2016, completing 8 of 15 passes for 80 yards, no scores and no interceptions. In his rookie season of 2013, McGloin started six games for Oakland, and the team went 1-5 in those games. He completed 55.9 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions that season.


Mar 22 2018 - Damien Williams
  RB Damien Williams has signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, his agent announced. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport later reported that it was a one-year contract for $1.5 million.


Mar 22 2018 - Darrien Williams
  RB Damien Williams has signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, his agent announced Thursday. Williams has rushed for 477 yards in four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, including a career-high 181 on 46 carries last year. He also had 20 of his 85 career receptions in 2017.


Mar 21 2018 - Xavier Williams
  NT Xavier Williams signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced on Wednesday. The transaction came to pass after the Arizona Cardinals elected against matching the Chiefs' offer to Williams. The 26-year-old grew up in the Kansas City suburb of Grandview, Mo. Williams will have a chance to see significant time with the Chiefs as last season's starter Bennie Logan remains a free agent. Justin Hamilton, who played in only one game in 2017, and developmental prospect Josh Augusta are the only other nose tackles on the roster.


Mar 20 2018 - Xavier Williams
  NT Xavier Williams signed with the Chiefs, the Kansas City Star reported. Williams, 26, is headed to Kansas City after the Arizona Cardinals declined to match the Chiefs' contract offer, according to the newspaper, which cited a source.


Mar 16 2018 - Chad Henne
  QB Chad Henne signed a two-year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, multiple media outlets reported Friday. Henne has started 53 games in his NFL career, but none since he made three starts for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014. Henne signed a two-year, $8-million contract extension on February 18, 2016, to remain with the Jaguars as the backup to Blake Bortles. Henne played in two games for the Jaguars in 2017 and his only two passes were incomplete.


Mar 15 2018 - Anthony Sherman
  FB Anthony Sherman re-signed with the Chiefs, the team announced Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although the Kansas City Star reported it was for one year and $2 million plus incentives. Sherman has spent five of his seven NFL seasons with the Chiefs, appearing in all 16 regular-season games in each of those five seasons since joining the club prior to the 2013 season. He played his first two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.


Mar 14 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens reached agreement with the Kansas City Chiefs on a five-year deal worth $45 million with $21.9 million guaranteed, according to multiple media outlets. Hitchens spent his first four seasons with the Cowboys.

  CB Kendall Fuller was traded to the Chiefs along with a third-round pick in the 2018 draft for QB Alex Smith.


Mar 12 2018 - Ron Parker
  S Ron Parker was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday. The Chiefs asked Parker to take a pay cut but he declined. He will become a free agent on Wednesday. Releasing Parker will save approximately $4.9 million in salary cap space in 2018. Parker, 30, was a starter for the Chiefs each of the past four seasons. He had 67 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions last season.


Feb 20 2018 - Derrick Johnson
  LB Derrick Johnson took to social media to thank the team and its fans after playing 13 NFL seasons in the City of Fountains. The Chiefs announced last week that the four-time Pro Bowl selection would be allowed to become a free agent when his contract with the club expires at the start of the new league year on March 14. "I want to thank the Kansas City Chiefs and the Hunt family for supporting me since 2005," the 35-year-old Johnson wrote on Instagram. "The Love you showed a young kid from Texas, really allowed me to have a home away from home. Chiefs Kingdom you will be truly missed. Trust me I wish I could play for the Chiefs forever but that's not the reality. However God has been blessing me for a long time in KC and my trust will remain in the man upstairs. #13greatyears #easilymotivated#notdoneyet"


Feb 13 2018 - Derrick Johnson
  LB Derrick Johnson will become a free agent when his contract with the club expires at the start of the new league year on March 14. It ends Johnson's 13-year run with the Chiefs. Johnson, 35, told The Kansas City Star on Tuesday that he was informed recently of the team's decision by general manager Brett Veach. Johnson signed a three-year, $21 million contract extension in March 2016. But when he restructured that deal a year ago, he freed up $4.25 million and voided the third year of the contract. Johnson is the franchise's all-time leading tackler, compiling 1,262 career stops, including 993 solo tackles, in his 13 seasons with the Chiefs (2005-17). He earned four Pro Bowl berths with the club.


Jan 30 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith will be traded to Washington, multiple outlets reported Tuesday night. Smith and the Redskins also reached an agreement on a four-year contract extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The trade cannot be completed until the new league year begins March 14, and there was no word on the return for the Chiefs, who shed Smith's salary for the last year of his contract. Smith has a cap number of $20.6 million for 2018, and the Chiefs will save $17 million. The 33-year-old Smith set career-highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7) this past season. He posted a 50-26 record as a starter since arriving in Kansas City in 2013 and has made two straight Pro Bowl appearances.


Jan 26 2018 - Kevin Pierre-Louis
  LB Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis was arrested for misdemeanor possession of marijuana after a traffic stop in Johnson County (Kan.), the Kansas City Star reported on Friday.


Jan 12 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith was named as a replacement for Philip Rivers of the Los Angeles Chargers on the AFC roster for the upcoming Pro Bowl, the team announced Friday.Smith will be making his third Pro Bowl appearance and join teammates Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill in the game on Jan. 28. The 33-year-old Smith set career highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7) during the 2017 season. He was talked about as a possible NFL MVP candidate after a fast start before the Chiefs dropped six of seven to effectively end that conversation.Smith completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC wild-card round.


Jan 10 2018 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson set career highs with 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns in just 13 games during his fourth season. His value in Kansas City's offense goes beyond the role of pass-catcher, however, with the gritty 5-foot-9 Wilson using his speed in the team's motion and jet sweep packages and bringing a fiery attitude to the field.


Jan 10 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt captured the NFL rushing title and set a league record by topping 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven games as a pro.


Jan 10 2018 - De'Anthony Thomas
  WR De'Anthony Thomas turned in another below-expectations season. Thomas caught just 14 passes for 143 yards and lost his job as the team's top kickoff returner. Thomas unfortunately suffered a serious leg injury in the regular-season finale, undergoing surgery for a broken leg. With Thomas wrapping up the final year of his rookie contract, this looks like the end of the road for his time in Kansas City.


Jan 10 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill blossomed into a No. 1 wide receiver with a 1,000-yard season.


Jan 10 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce turned in another 1,000-yard season before sustaining a concussion in the playoff loss to Tennessee.


Jan 10 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith turned in the best season of his career with 4,042 yards passing and 26 touchdowns.


Jan 8 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt had only 11 carries for 42 yards, including just five touches in the second half.


Jan 8 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith did enough to win most games, but not this one. Smith delivered an efficient 23-of-33 passing effort for 264 yards and two touchdowns, mostly in an impressive first half. But when the Chiefs need just one play in the second half to sustain a drive or get into field-goal range at the end of the game, Smith and his receivers couldn't get the job done.


Jan 8 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif plans to hit the books to study for his final examination in the process of becoming a medical doctor back home in Canada. Duvernay-Tardif will head to Canada soon to start studying. He started medical school in 2010 at McGill University in Montreal. "Basically, the only thing I've got left in terms of my medical career in order to get my M.D. is to pass the board exam, which is a national board exam that happens around May," Tardif said. "That gives me around three months, three and a half months to study for that exam."


Jan 8 2018 - Demarcus Robinson
  WR Demarcus Robinson entered the league's concussion protocol after a collision late in Saturday's game.


Jan 8 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce left Saturday's game late in the first half with a concussion after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Titans S Johnathan Cyprien. Head coach Andy Reid said Kelce appeared recovering well after the game, and he expected Kelce could have played in the divisional round of the playoffs had the Chiefs advanced.


Jan 8 2018 - Chris Jones
  DL Chris Jones suffered a knee injury on the opening play of the second half of the team's wild-card game against Tennessee. Jones suffered a torn MCL, an injury that expects to limit his offseason workouts. Jones started training camp this season on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in July following a workout injury.


Jan 6 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith passed for 264 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee. Smith passed for only 33 yards in the second half.


Jan 6 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce caught a 13-yard touchdown pass before leaving Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee in the first half with a concussion and did not return. Kelce was administered a helmet-to-helmet hit by S Johnathan Cyprien after a 12-yard reception.


Jan 6 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt scored on a 1-yard run in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee.


Jan 6 2018 - Demarcus Robinson
  WR Demarcus Robinson caught a 14-yard touchdown pass in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee. The score put the Chiefs ahead 21-3.


Jan 6 2018 - Chris Jones
  DL Chris Jones left Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee with a knee injury and did not return.


Jan 6 2018 - Albert Wilson
  Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson was active for Saturday afternoon's AFC wild-card game against the visiting Tennessee Titans. Wilson's status was up in the air all week as he dealt with a hamstring injury that led the Chiefs to list him as questionable. The fourth-year wideout finished fourth on the team with a career-best 42 receptions despite sitting out three games.


Jan 4 2018 - Harrison Butker
  K Harrison Butker was the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month after going 15-for-18 on field-goal attempts and a perfect 28-for-28 on extra-point tries.


Jan 3 2018 - Marcus Kemp
  WR Marcus Kemp was promoted to fill De'Anthony Thomas' roster spot, and the Chiefs plan to use him on several special team units.


Jan 3 2018 - Akeem Hunt
  RB Akeem Hunt, who went on injured reserve on Tuesday, suffered a broken ankle during the team's season finale against Denver. The team hoped Hunt only suffered a sprain, but further tests revealed the fracture.


Jan 3 2018 - Cameron Erving
  OL Cameron Erving suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's season finale, but appears likely ready for reserve duty this weekend against Tennessee.


Jan 3 2018 - Charcandrick West
  RB Charcandrick West returned to practice in full this week after missing the season finale with the flu. The Chiefs listed several players on the injury report the last few weeks with an illness, but only West appears on the report this week. West could see duty as a kickoff returner in addition to his role as backup to RB Kareem Hunt.


Jan 3 2018 - Eric Fisher
  LT Eric Fisher practiced in full this week despite appearing on the injury report with a back injury. It's unclear when the injury affected Fisher, who played only special teams snaps during the season finale. He appears ready to play this weekend, however.


Jan 3 2018 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali sat out practice on Wednesday as part of his regular schedule. The Chiefs expect him to be available for the game Saturday.


Jan 3 2018 - Jarvis Jenkins
  DL Jarvis Jenkins missed practice for the second straight day with what head coach Andy Reid termed swelling in his knee following Sunday's game at Denver. The cautious treatment of Jenkins' knee is worrisome, but it doesn't rule out his availability for Saturday.


Jan 3 2018 - Rakeem Nunez-Roches
  DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches missed practice for the second straight day Wednesday with an ankle injury. The Chiefs remain vague on his availability for Saturday's playoff game, but the addition of free-agent DT Stefan Charles indicates some concern about the depth of the team's defensive line heading to the postseason.


Jan 3 2018 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson returned to practice Wednesday after missing a day of practice with a tight hamstring. The club listed Wilson as limited in practice, but expects him to play Sunday's against Tennessee.


Jan 3 2018 - Stefan Charles
  DT Stefan Charles was signed to fill CB Phillips Gaines' roster spot with the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday. The 29-year-old Charles has collected 60 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 49 career games with the Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.


Jan 2 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt was intent on winning the rushing title, so much so that the rookie smooth-talked his coach into letting him vie for the honor. "He came to me and he wanted to play and he wanted to do this thing," coach Andy Reid said of Hunt, per ESPN. "I fought him a little bit on it, and he won that fight. He told me he'd get it taken care of quick, and he did that. My hat goes off to him."
