Kansas City Chiefs' rapid offensive line overhaul has exceeded almost all expectations

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs had high hopes for their offensive line last year after they invested heavily in the position group following a Super Bowl LV loss in which the unit was overwhelmed. They spent free agency dollars on left guard Joe Thuney, traded draft picks to acquire left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. from the Baltimore Ravens, then selected center Creed Humphrey and right guard Trey Smith in the 2021 draft.

They might have exceeded those expectations.

"It worked out better because on one end, we were confident in Orlando and Thuney," general manager Brett Veach said.
