The Chiefs have had a busy few days and Brett Veach isn't slowing down anytime soon, reportedly re-signing four exclusive rights free agents to bolster roster depth.

After agreeing to a contract with long-time long-snapper James Winchester early in the "legal tampering" free agency period, Kansas City has now re-signed four more players who played various roles for the back-to-back Super Bowl champions.

Chiefs Roster News: KC Re-Signs Four Exclusive Rights Free Agents

CB Nazeeh Johnson, LB Cole Christiansen, offensive lineman Mike Caliendo and DE Malik Herring will all be back for the club in 2024-25.

Herring is the most significant on-the-field signing, as he saw 195 snaps this year and filled in early in the season while Charles Omenihu was suspended. He notched 1.5 sacks and is valuable defensive line depth, especially with another year in the system.

Johnson, Christiansen and Caliendo will likely be practice squad or lower-tier roster guys. That being said, it's crucial to have players familiar with your scheme in the event someone goes down with injury.

We'll see if the Chiefs make any big splashes and poach a free agent from another team, though these moves are still important to round out the roster and keep Kansas City atop the AFC.

The Chiefs are listed at +350 to win the AFC for the third straight year. If they keep up solid moves like these while bolstering the finer parts of the team, they'll be a bargain at that price going into 2024-25.
