The Chiefs are stuck in their most difficult stretch in several years, having lost three of their last four games with tons of questions for the rest of the year and upcoming offseason.

Brett Veach and the front office have a lot of work to do, with several key players up for a new contract and some disappointing ones likely to move on.

Entering the final few weeks of the season before a playoff run, let's look at four Chiefs who robbed the team blind this year.

4 Chiefs Who Robbed the Team Blind

1. Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WR

If this list is a sort of heist, Valdes-Scantling is the ring-leader. He's the mastermind organizing the bank robbery with his $11 million salary this season that ranks as the sixth-highest on the team.

What have the Chiefs received for their $11 million? 20 catches on 39 targets for 312 yards and one single TD, as well as critical drops and missed plays in key moments.

It's been that kind of year for Valdes-Scantling. Given his hefty contract, the Chiefs would be wise to cut bait following this season.

Valdes-Scantling still has an opportunity to earn his keep, but he's nearly out of time. He was a playoff hero in last year's Super Bowl run and this offense desperately needs the juice he can provide.

If he rises to the challenge, that'd be wonderful. If he doesn't, we shouldn't be surprised. He's the mastermind of this heist, after all.
