Top Chiefs stories

  • The Chiefs made defensive end Frank Clark’s release official Tuesday. The fondest memories of Clark’s four-year tenure in Kansas City will be the impact he made in the postseason. He posted 10.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss and 32 total tackles in 12 postseason games with the Chiefs. General manager Brett Veach and coach Andy Reid both released statements on Clark’s departure, with nothing but kind words to say about the 29-year-old veteran.

  • In the wake of Clark’s release, Chiefs Wire editor Charles Goldman looked at the Chiefs’ current depth at defensive end. K.C. currently has four DEs under contract for the 2023 season. It’s definitely one of the top positions of need for the Chiefs this offseason. However, don’t completely rule out Clark returning if he doesn’t find what he’s looking for in free agency.

  • NFL Network’s James Palmer suggested that core of the Chiefs’ receiver group will remain the same in 2023. He stated that the Chiefs view Kadarius Toney as a WR1 and expect Skyy Moore to take a step forward in his development. He also thinks that the Chiefs will make a strong push to bring back JuJu Smith-Schuster. This doesn’t necessarily dismiss the chance of K.C. drafting a receiver early or adding a free agent, but the WR group as a whole may not undergo the makeover that some thought it would.
