KC Chiefs: Five Most Underrated Chiefs For 2015

2 of 6

The Hulk really is a physical phenomenon at 6-foot 3-inches and 288 pounds. (Source of link: KC Star’s Terez A. Paylor) His 34-inch arm length make him a handful to deal with and allow him to line up at both interior and outside defensive line spots.

For all the turnover the Chiefs have had since 2011, Allen Bailey has steadily improved his body and it’s paying off for him – literally. Dude is a made man at four-years and $25 million.

A lot of people wanted that money to go to Justin Houston, but Bailey’s work up front makes Houston’s work in the backfield more possible. Bailey deserved his guaranteed money, and I think Houston would agree.

After two misguided seasons in 2011 and 2012, Bailey assumed a much larger role when Bob Sutton became Defensive Coordinator for the Chiefs. In 2013, Bailey played in 15 games, combined for 30 tackles and posted one sack. Last season, Bailey took another step forward.  He combined for 41 tackles and posted a career-best five sacks as a regular on a stout Chiefs defense.

I expect similar impact from the Hulk in 2015. He’s a big-bodied, long-armed guy who’s just entering his prime. Even with the return of the very mob-sounding Mike DeVito and Mike Catapano, Bailey should start for Kansas City Chiefs and prove he’s an integral piece in the Chiefs trenches.
