  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Compiles eight tackles in win

    Tranquill recorded eight tackles (four solo), including a half-sack, in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

    Tranquill saw an increase in his usage on the defense in Week 3, playing 82 percent of the defensive snaps. The linebacker stepped into a larger role when Nick Bolton (ankle) was unavailable, and he could operate in a similar role again in Week 4 versus the Jets if Bolton can't go again.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Strains neck in practice

    The severity of the injury is unclear, though Tranquill left practice on a cart along with tight end Jody Fortson as a precautionary measure. Tranquill signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Chiefs in March after spending the last four seasons with the Chargers. He recorded career highs in 2022 in tackles (146) and sacks (five) while playing in all 17 games.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Expected to sign with KC

    Tranquill is expected to sign a one-year, $5 million deal with the Chiefs on Friday, Jordan Schultz of reports.

    Per Shultz, Tranquill had a long list of suitors but decided to join the reigning Super Bowl champions on a team-friendly deal. The 2019 fourth-round pick supplanted Kenneth Murray for a starting spot with the Chargers last year and posted career highs in tackles (144) and sacks (five). It'll be hard to match that type of production playing alongside Willie Gay, Nick Bolton and Leo Chenal, but Tranquill should still garner a sizable role in Kansas City's linebacker corps.
