We've seen a lot of roster turnover for the Chiefs in the last few years. While some players like Tyreek Hill are thriving in their new homes, others are struggling.

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Chris Jones and Andy Reid are the constants for this golden era of Chiefs football, but what about our old friends that're no longer in Kansas City?

Let's look at three former Chiefs who haven't found success after leaving the organization.

3 Former Chiefs Failing Miserably With Their New Teams

1. Orlando Brown Jr. - Cincinnati Bengals

The much-maligned former left tackle for the Chiefs is with the rival Bengals now, having signed a four-year, $64 million deal this offseason.

Brown won a Super Bowl with Kansas City last year and was hailed as a fantastic signing for the Bengals, though the problems that plagued Brown here still persist.

Pro Football Focus grades him as roughly average, having surrendered four sacks and committed three penalties, but the Bengals' competitive season is essentially over following Joe Burrow's injury.

Cincinnati can't be happy with league-average production from such a big contract, though it's hard to judge Brown at the moment given the injuries the Bengals have dealt with all year.

The Chiefs have their own issues to deal with on the offensive line with injuries and penalties, but it's safe to say the organization is happy it moved on from Brown.

He's not the only player Kansas City was wise to let go, as you'll see on the next page.
