While the Kansas City Chiefs recently drafted Tanoh Kpassagnon , a second-round pick out of Villanova, they could still use more help at the position going forward.
The Chiefs tend to play their outside pass rushers a lot like a defensive end position making it very difficult for Ford to have much success.
We all saw what back problems have done to players like Dontari Poe, so could this be another situation where the Chiefs have to find an upgrade and let Ford walk?
If the Chiefs do decide to move on from Smith and cut/trade him, it opens up a lot of cap money and possible draft picks for compensation to build the rest of the team.
While there are other positions many feel are more important like cornerback, finding a significant upgrade at pass rusher could do wonders for this defense that is struggling to generate pressure on the quarterback consistently.
