No. 10: The Kansas City Chiefs brought back a pretty well-known player to help their defensive line: veteran defensive end Alex Okafor
The Kansas City Chiefs needed to find a defensive lineman who could help this team disrupt opposing offenses and they found one in a familiar and friendly face for Chiefs fans: veteran defensive end Alex Okafor.
Okafor, a Dallas, Texas native, has been in the NFL since 2013, playing for three different teams during that timeframe: the Arizona Cardinals, New Orleans Saints, and the Kansas City Chiefs. After spending four seasons with the Cardinals and then a couple with the Saints, Okafor arrived in Kansas City as the Chiefs were gearing up for the 2019 season.
After a couple years here with the Kansas City Chiefs, Okafor is back for a little while longer after the Chiefs were able to come to an agreement with the 6-4, 261 pound defensive end.
So far during his career with the Chiefs, Okafor has tallied a total of 38 tackles, 19 quarterback hits, and 6 tackles for loss. Throughout the entirety of his NFL career, Okafor has a total of 192 tackles, 67 quarterback hits, and 34 tackles for loss.
The Kansas City Chiefs know exactly how good Okafor can be and, though he is starting to get a bit older for a NFL defensive lineman, he’s someone who can help continue building what the Chiefs are working on as they work to pursue another Super Bowl.
