3 Former Chiefs Who Will Fail Miserably With Their New Teams After Free Agency

The grass isn't always greener, and these former Chiefs are about to learn that lesson the hard way.

2. Nick Allegretti (Washington Commanders)

With a three-year, $16 million contract, the Washington Commanders clearly signalled that they expect Nick Allegretti to be a mainstay in their starting lineup.

That means more money and a more important role than he would have received from the Kansas City Chiefs. And with three Super Bowl rings, it's fair enough that those factors are more important than winning for Allegretti.

But theres' a reason he was never able to be a regular starter for the Chiefs. The last time he played more than 200 snaps (2022, when he had a 25% snap share on the season), Allegretti received a brutal 52.4 overall grade from Pro Football Focus (60.9 in run blocking and an atrocious 35.4 in pass blocking).

The Washington Commanders organization hasn't exactly been known as one of the NFL's most competent in recent years, and their horrible grades in the 2024 NFLPA report cards confirm this.

Allegretti is going to find out that the scrunity you get as a starter is a lot harder to hold up to than when you're a backup filling in for an injury, and he'll be doing it with one of the least player-friendly organizations in football.
