While the Kansas City Chiefs lost cornerback L’Jarius Sneed and are dealing with the car crash wide receiver Rashee Rice was allegedly involved in, they have made some key moves this offseason.

First came the sizable contract handed out to star pass rusher Chris Jones that will be worth nearly $159 million over five years.

Then on Friday, they agreed with starting defensive end Mike Danna on a three-year, $24 million deal to keep him around.

Jones warned the rest of the NFL that with Danna locked up for the next few years, it will be in trouble.

In recent years, the Chiefs had been an elite team thanks to a high-powered offense that was driven by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and it got them two Super Bowl championships during the 2019 and 2022 seasons.

But last year, they reinvented themselves in impressive fashion.

Star wide receiver Tyreek Hill was long gone after being traded in the 2022 offseason, and they had also lost JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was their most productive wideout in 2022.

Therefore, Kansas City became more conservative offensively and started winning with defense far more than they had in the past, and that new approach resulted in them finishing second in points and total yards allowed.

Danna played a role in that success with 6.5 sacks, 13 quarterback hits, seven tackles for loss, and three passes defended in his first year as a full-time starter.

That defense got the Chiefs yet another world championship by holding down the San Francisco 49ers just enough in February’s Super Bowl.
