Here’s a Look at the Chiefs’ Current Roster Heading into Organized Team Activities


By Matt McMullen,


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs will hit the field for Organized Team Activities (OTAs) this week as the reigning Super Bowl champions take another step forward in the offseason training program.

As per league rules, the Chiefs will be permitted to conduct 10 total voluntary OTA practices between May 22 and June 9. These aren’t padded practices and no live contact is allowed, but they mark the first time that teams can partake in full, 11-on-11 drills. It’s not quite real football, but it’s where the foundation for the next several months is established.

With all of that in mind, here’s a look at all 91 players currently under contract with the Chiefs. Offseason rosters are generally capped at 90 players, but Kansas City was allotted an additional spot in order to sign Chukwuebuka Godrick through the International Player Pathway Program.

Players are listed alphabetically, but those who appeared in at least seven games last season (either for the Chiefs or their previous team) are bolded. Rookies are italicized.
