3. Charles Omenihu - DE
Omenihu didn't play poorly, but he didn't jump off the page either with just one tackle and one pressure. On a day the Chiefs piled up five sacks, Omenihu didn't make a big impact.
The reason he's on thin ice is his contract. Omenihu's cap hit balloons to over $11 million next season, though the Chiefs can get out of the deal if they want. With George Karlaftis and Mike Danna playing well alongside Chris Jones' usual excellence, Omenihu could become a cap casualty if he doesn't produce.
Brett Veach has a lot of difficult decisions to make this offseason. Omenihu was a marquee offseason signing to bolster the defensive line, though Danna's rise may alter the pecking order.
It's hard to argue against Danna's production this season. He's got 5.5 sacks and is a force in the run game, so I'd tip the scales in his favor if the Chiefs have to pick between the two.
If Omenihu dominates over the next several weeks, the calculus will change. For now, I'd bet the Chiefs wind up extending Danna over keeping Omenihu.
