The 2022 pre-season will be critical for the Chiefs as they have a massive influx of rookies entering the fold after a pivotal offseason for the club. General manager Brett Veach has strayed from his normal tendencies this year, opting for long-term flexibility and youth instead of extending well-known veterans. In addition to letting players such as Tyrann Mathieu, Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and others go through free agency, the Chiefs traded star receiver Tyreek Hill for a series of draft picks.

Without a fourth game – even if it’s the second year in this format – teams could still struggle to navigate the waters of a condensed pre-season. Players who are on the roster bubble won’t have as much time to show off their talents, and veterans may not see as much work on the pitch as they prepare for another year. Although the Chiefs have a ton of talent on their roster, it will be interesting to see how they choose to develop and evaluate him in August.
