Emmanuel Ogbah played for the Chiefs in 2019 when he was acquired from the Cleveland Browns via trade. He was placed on injured reserve on November 18th, only playing in ten games, and was a free agent following the season. He signed a two-year deal worth $15,000,000 with the Miami Dolphins. In his two years with Miami, Ogbah played in 33 games recording 83 combined tackles, 15 TFL, 45 QB hits, and 18 sacks. He will be turning 29 years old. If Ogbah returned to the Chiefs he would be familiar with the scheme defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo runs.
Kansas City could use Ogbah’s talent and offer him a similar deal the Dolphins did two years ago for $15,000,00. The deal could be structured with incentives to earn money based on accolades through the season. According to spotrac.com, Ogbah’s market value is three years, $30,498,000 with an average salary of $10,166,003. This would put him at No. 191 in the NFL and No. 21 at the defensive end position.
Ogbah would provide a boost to the pass rush. With Miami, he applied pressure to opposing quarterbacks 75 times. In 2020-21 his missed tackle rate was 8.7%, and in 2021-22 his missed tackle rate was 6.8%. In comparison to defensive end Frank Clark whose numbers were higher. Clark recorded a 12.1% missed tackle rate in 2020-21 and 24.1% in 2021-22.
