The Kansas City Chiefs have a history of great athletes to play the  running back position and today, were counting down the top 5 in team history.

It has been arguably the most successful position for the Chiefs (linebacker being the other) and that’s especially been true for more than a decade now. Lately, it seems like it doesn’t matter if we lose our star running back because there will just be one in the mix waiting.

Hell, even Jackie Battle made a quick name for himself in 2011 when Charles was lost for the season.

Shout out to Tony Richardson, too. He had a 1,165 yards from scrimmage season in 2000, when he filled in as the premier back for one season. And, even though this wont be popular, Larry Johnson had some stellar years as well.

Johnson is the only back in Chiefs history to reach 1,700 yards rushing and he did it in back-to-back seasons. Granted, he did have an offensive line that was full of Hall-of-Fame players but, his style of running was fast and ferocious and he at least deserved a quick shout out.

Now, lets act like I didn’t mention his name.
