We’re onto #54 in our greatest Kansas City Chiefs series and I have a feeling I already know who is going to win. Amidst a plethora of linebackers who have worn #54 for the Chiefs, one offensive lineman stands out.

And not just because of his play on the field.

But first, let’s review the other nine players Wholesale Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys who have worn #54 for the Kansas City Chiefs…

LB Walker Lee Ashley (1989)

Ashley was mainly a Minnesota Viking in his NFL career but he did stop by in KC for one season. He nabbed one interception in 15 starts during the ’89 season.

LB Tim Cofield (1986-88)

Cofield spent three seasons in Kansas City as an outside linebacker, racking up some decent stats in that time. Cofield started 35 Cheap Brian Waters Jersey of the 43 games he played in for the Chiefs and totaled 8.5 sacks. His rookie year in ’86 was especially good – he had 5 sacks that season alone.

LB Greg Favors (1998)

Favors was a fourth round pick out of Mississippi St. but only lasted one season for the Chiefs. He started four games and had two sacks.

LB Ted Greene (1960-62)

Ted Greene wasn’t a Kansas City Chief – he was a Dallas Texan. Coming out of Tampa, Greene had four sacks and only played three seasons of professional football. You old timers out there, chime in with more on Greene.

C Mike Hudock (1967)

Hudock was an original AFL member, playing for the New York Titans/Jets and Green Bay Packers. He came to the Chiefs only for four games once KC’s center went down with an injury. H

LB Frank Manumaleuga (1979-81)

Manumaleuga was a fourth round pick by the Chiefs in the 1979 draft. He started 17 out of the 35 games he played in as a Chief, catching Cheap Tracy Simien Jersey 6 INTs in the process. He did not play football after his time in KC.

LB Tracy Simien (1991-97)

Another favorite of my childhood, Tracy Simien played for a few different NFL teams but the bulk of his career was played in Kansas City. Never a Pro Bowler or household name, Simien was a very consistent middle linebacker for the Chiefs in the 1990s. He played in 109 games for the Chiefs, starting 85 of them.

LB James Walker (1983)

Walker was a linebacker out of Kansas State who only played three games for the Chiefs. He was later arrested in connection with a drug sting.

G Brian Waters (2000-10)

Let’s face it: Brian Waters is our winner today. An undrafted free agent who became a 5 time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro selection?

Just vote Brian Waters and we’ll be done.

LB Clyde Werner (1970-74, ’76)

Werner was a second round pick by the Chiefs and ended up being mainly a special teams guy for KC.

Super Bowl LV certainly didn’t start the way Kansas City Chiefs fans would have hoped. The Chiefs were flagged for several crucial penalties, failed to get in the endzone over their first four offensive drives, and kept the Buccaneers in good field position thanks to a series of subpar punts from Cheap Tommy Townsend Jersey.

Townsend, a 24-year-old rookie, isn’t exactly used to punting in pressure scenarios. Entering the Super Bowl, Townsend punted just once in these playoffs, and was one of the least-active punters in the league thanks to the Chiefs’ high-powered offense.

Townsend boomed a 51-yard punt on the Chiefs’ first drive, but managed just 27 yards on his second punt, and had a dangerous moment during his third attempt. Townsend dropped the snap, but was able to grab the ball and kick a 56-yarder. Unfortunately for him, the punt was negated by a penalty, and his follow-up attempt was shanked and went just 29 yards.

Unsurprisingly, fans were not impressed.

WTH!!!!! This rookie punter @Townsend looks too damn scared to be out there. What in the hell are you doing, shanking a punt that badly???

— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) February 8, 2021

On one side.. the world is realizing the importance of a punter on the grandest stage.

And on the other side like… The Brand is currently taking a beating on the internet.

Kindof conflicted.. TT gonna turn it around… Right?

Had legit never set eyes on the Chiefs punter until he kept kicking four-yard punts tonight

The Chiefs then decide to Make Your Own Basketball Jersey

For example, Tampa Bay only has 45 players under contract currently. That means their current salary cap space of $18.5 million would go down to $14.54 million, shown by $18.5 million – ($660k * 6). Tampa’s cap space can go lower, as the Bucs could add contracts to their roster that are not the base minimum, but this is a much better snapshot of the Buccaneers’ salary cap as it currently stands than the $18.5 million figure.

In the same vein as the above example, but in reverse, when a team has 51 or more contracts, new contracts added to the roster need to take into account the contract that gets knocked out of the top 51.

Let’s say the Chiefs’ 51st contract is a $660k minimum base salary contract. The Chiefs then decide to re-sign Cheap Byron Pringle Jersey to a one-year/$1 million contract. For salary cap purposes, the Chiefs have not subtracted $1 million from their salary cap space. They actually subtracted $1 million – $660k = $340k. So, in this example, only $340k would be taken away from the Chiefs’ cap space.

Teams operate under this Top 51 contracts rule from the beginning of the league year until the first day of the regular season, and it warps offseason accounting to a huge degree. It is how teams can seemingly fit smaller level re-signings under the salary cap and is something every NFL fan needs to keep in mind.

Now, it is time to put our knowledge of NFL contracts to work.

The Cuts

We’ll be using a salary cap of $185.6 million for this mock offseason, which includes carry-over cap space from 2020. This means the Chiefs start the offseason $23.48 million over the cap.

There will probably be a few cuts to some previously important players.

If the salary cap did not decrease this year, the Chiefs could have gone through this offseason without any additional cuts. However, due to the salary cap falling, it seems unreasonable and financially irresponsible to make all the salary cap space needed just from restructures. Some players will have to go.

One player that will be noticeably absent from the mock offseason is defensive end Cheap Frank Clark Jersey. That is by design. Clark is incredibly difficult to move this offseason.

Cutting Frank Clark would charge $39 million in dead cap space in 2021, costing $13 million in cap space.

Cutting Frank Clark with a June 1 designation would charge $25.4 million against the Chiefs cap and gain $500k in cap space.

Trading Frank Clark would charge $20.4 million in dead cap and gain $5.4 million in salary cap space.

None of these figures are ideal. It is hard to imagine that Clark is not a Chief in 2021. The smartest thing to do with Clark is do nothing, hope he plays better in 2021, and if he doesn’t, then decide his fate next year when the numbers are more favorable for a release. In 2021 though? There is not much to do unless Clark takes a bonafide pay cut.

It is possible to have a functional offseason, even with Clark’s contract on the books as-is, with only a few cuts.

In this mock offseason, the Chiefs only cut two players.

Left tackle Cheap Eric Fisher Jersey is such an obvious cut on the surface that it feels almost destined to happen. Fisher will be coming off a late-season Achilles injury on the wrong side of 30 and is in the last year of his contract. By cutting Fisher, the Chiefs would save $11.3 million after replacing his contract in accordance to the Top 51 rule.

It would not be shocking if the Chiefs and Fisher get some sort of contract resolution sorted out, spreading out Fisher’s cap hit over a year or two so he can stay on the roster, but it feels like a long shot and mistake. A sad end for a player who has been a Chief for a long time, but the NFL is a business. Chiefs cap room: -$12.17 million

In the spirit of “the NFL is a business”, cutting running back Cheap Damien Williams Jersey is also a move that is depressing on the emotional side of the game. Business is business though, and the Chiefs would add $1.5 million in savings, which makes Williams a good mid-level cut to help retain some players at more important positions. Cutting a player like Williams is going to be a common roster move this offseason for other teams as front offices try to claw back some salary cap room from veteran contracts. This is why many in the NFL media are predicting this offseason could be rough for veterans around the league. Chiefs cap room: -$10.55 million

Fisher and Williams are the only two cuts needed to get to a respectable salary cap number at the end of the salary cap creation phase. No, cutting right tackle Cheap Mitchell Schwartz Jersey was not done in this mock offseason. It felt like a more interesting exercise to try and go through an offseason with Schwartz on the roster. His return in 2021 feels truly uncertain, so waiting it out and seeing how the roster ends up with him on the team feels like a believable, likely exercise.

Even with the cuts above, the Chiefs are still over the cap. In order to find the rest of the money needed, more salary cap space will have to be added through restructures.

The Restructures

Restructured contracts are not the end of the world.

Despite the negative aura surrounding restructures, due in large part to the salary cap apocalypses happening in Philadelphia and New Orleans, restructures are an incredibly powerful tool.

There are three players who are likely targets for the Chiefs to restructure.

I wrote about quarterback Cheap Patrick Mahomes Jersey contract last offseason and its unorthodox construction. That unorthodox construction can already help the Chiefs create cap space.

Mahomes’ contract is a bank the Chiefs can borrow from a couple of times over the life of the deal if they wish. Keeping the borrowing to only when it is necessary is the key, but this offseason is a time it is needed.

For this mock offseason, $15 million of Mahomes’ roster bonus in 2021 will be restructured into a signing bonus. The $15 million is spread out over the maximum of five years on his deal and saves $12 million in 2021. Chiefs cap room: $1.344 million

Tight end Cheap Travis Kelce Jersey contract is very strange in hindsight. Kelce will make $13.25 million this year but will only make $7.5 million next year. Kelce also has no guaranteed money in his deal after this season, despite having three years left on the deal. To smooth this contract out and reward an all-time Chief with guaranteed money, Kelce gets a restructure to the tune of $10 million in total restructure money to save $8 million against the 2021 salary cap. Chiefs cap room: $9.344 million

Defensive tackle Cheap Chris Jones Jersey is the last restructure needed to make salary cap room. Jones’ restructuring is a bit scarier due to him only having three years left on his contract, but good savings can be found. It is hard not to imagine that Jones is not in the Chiefs’ future plans, so the restructuring still feels safe. Even if the worst happens and the Chiefs need to cut Jones next offseason, they can still do so, saving $19 million in salary cap while having $6.8 million in dead money. Chiefs cap room: $15.344 million

Summary

At the end of cuts and restructures, the Chiefs are now $15 million under the worst-case salary cap of $180 million. This required only a few cuts and restructures and no major moves outside releasing Eric Fisher.

Looking into the future, the restructures have done very little down the road to the Chiefs’ future caps. In 2022 and 2023, the Chiefs added $8 million per year on Mahomes, Jones, and Kelce’s contracts. After that, it’s only $5 million a year till the end of the five-year period the restructure was spread out over.

This amount of borrowing from the future is entirely sustainable.

There are rumors that the salary cap will explode in 2022 due to the increased revenue share from the CBA, more lucrative TV deals and the return of in-person attendance. Over the Cap estimates the salary cap to be $227 million and other estimates have come in around that number as well. When this happens, will the Chiefs really care about $8 million tied up in three of their best players? No, they will not.

If the Chiefs wish to cut more players and make some more salary cap room, releasing players like Cheap Chad Henne Jersey, Cheap Dorian ODaniel Jersey, and Cheap Anthony Hitchens Jersey (with a June 1 designation) are other plausible options. The savings on these types of moves are minuscule though, and it seems the Chiefs like those three for their roles on the team and believe the savings would not outweigh the cost.

While $15.343 million in salary cap space seems like very little to work with, the Top 51 rule will extend that money further than it seems at first glance. The Chiefs’ offseason will look a lot like last year, as they will make signings and re-signings that seem to defy the math of the salary cap.

In the next part of the mock offseason series, we will attempt to simulate those physics-defying roster moves.
