Most explosive players in Kansas City Chiefs history: 7. Travis Kelce

Drafted in the third round out of Cincinnati in 2013, Travis Kelce has taken the NFL by storm and is easily considered one of the best tight ends in the league. Kelce played in just one game as a rookie but has appeared in almost every game since then.

Kelce has totaled over 1,000 yards receiving in each of the last three seasons while notching double-digit touchdowns in 2018. Even when he had Alex Smith throwing the ball to him, Kelce proved he was a force to be reckoned with. Seeing guys try to tackle him was always entertaining.

Kelce, who turns 30 during the 2019 NFL season, continues to be a freak on the field. He has four Pro Bowl appearances and two All-Pro nods. Kelce is nowhere near being done.

Most explosive players in Kansas City Chiefs history: 6. Trent Green

Before Patrick Mahomes took over the reins at quarterback in 2018, a lot of Chiefs fans longed for the days of a quarterback like Trent Green who could throw the ball deep. Green was good at that and he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in franchise history to this day.

Green joined the Chiefs in 2001 and went on to start all 16 games for the first five seasons he spent in Kansas City. It wasn’t until 2006 that Green missed time due to injury.

During those healthy seasons, Green put up insane numbers, especially for the early to mid-2000s. He threw for over 4,000 yards three times, including 4,591 yards in 2004.

Green’s final numbers with the Chiefs were 21,549 passing yards, 118 touchdowns and 85 interceptions. He did throw a lot of picks, but that’s to be expected from a quarterback who likes to air it out.
