Pringle finished the 2020 regular season with just 13 receptions on 17 targets for 160 yards and a touchdown. His biggest impact came on special teams where he had 10 kick returns for 324 yards and a touchdown.

Chiefs GM Brett Veach seemed very excited about Pringle and his potential for the upcoming season just days ago during his pre-draft press conference.

“We’re certainly extremely high on Byron Pringle,” Veach told reporters. “I think we all believe in him and the progress and the work that he’s put in, we are certainly hopeful for him.”

Ahead of Super Bowl LV, Pringle’s Chiefs teammates lobbied for him to have a bigger role in the game plan. He received the start for Kansas City, with 44 offensive snaps, but only one reception for three yards on two targets.
