The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot of really solid personnel on their defensive front in 2024.

When you look at the edge position, even factoring in Charles Omenihu missing time as he makes his way back from February knee surgery (torn ACL), the Chiefs have an enviable group which includes George Karlaftis, Mike Danna, and 2023 first-round pick Felix Anudike-Uzomah.

On the interior defensive line, the Chiefs have one of the biggest stars in the league in veteran Chris Jones. Derrick Nnadi played the second-most snaps among Chiefs defensive linemen last year and third behind them was former UDFA Tershawn Wharton, who had a career-high five QB hits last season.

There could be interest from Wharton around the league after he played nearly 400 snaps last year and showed some really nice things. Why would the Chiefs part ways with someone who has developed within their system? Well, they are bringing back a couple of key depth pieces in Matt Dickerson and Neil Farrell. Farrell, in particular, seems like the type of player who deserves more snaps.

The Chiefs could be looking at someone like Wharton as having maximized his potential within their defense and try to get value for him before he leaves in free agency during the 2025 offseason.
