As the Super Bowl celebrations conclude, the Kansas City Chiefs are transitioning into offseason mode; Part of that is deciding which free agents to let walk and which to keep. Here are six that shouldn’t be brought back for 2020.
It’s officially the offseason for the Kansas City Chiefs and there are going to be some tough decisions for Brett Veach and the front office to make this spring. Free agency will officially take place next month and while some choices might be tough to make, there are some players who it will make sense to let walk to hit the market.
Let’s look at some of those players who it won’t be hard to part ways from.
When the Chiefs brought Morris Claiborne in prior to the 2019 season, it seemed like he’d be a great option to have in the secondary. Kansas City didn’t do much to address the cornerback depth over the offseason and Claiborne appeared to be one of the surefire starters for the 2019 team.
While Claiborne wasn’t necessarily bad this past season, he wasn’t on the field much, appearing in just eight games and starting one. He was suspended for the first four games, played the next eight, and then missed every game from week 14 on.
The Chiefs secondary is set to lose several cornerbacks this offseason, but if the Chiefs are wanting to bring any of them back, it shouldn’t be Claiborne, but rather Bashaud Breeland or Kendall Fuller.
This doesn’t seem like a crazy suggestion, as Morris Claiborne didn’t live up to the hype. Let him walk this offseason.
