2. Andrus Peat

Andrus Peat is a versatile offensive lineman who's capable of filling in as the Chiefs' starting left tackle.

Although he was mostly used at left guard in recent years, Peat was the New Orleans Saints' starting LT for the majority of the 2023 campaign. Although the Oakland, CA native's 54.5 pass-block grade was far from his best mark, he still allowed only two sacks and eight QB hits across 476 passing snaps. He also ended the year on a relatively high note, tallying pass-block grades of 70.2 or better in two of his last four games.

Let's not forget that Peat was also one of the NFL's better O-linemen not too long ago, having made three consecutive Pro Bowls from 2018 to 2020. Even though it's been a few years since he's reached those heights, he just turned 30 in November and likely still has some juice left in the tank.

Playing for a Super Bowl contender can bring out the best in a player, so I'd be interested in seeing if joining the Chiefs helps Peat turn back the clock.
