Top 10 Kansas City Chiefs Players of All Time

Updated on December 29, 2019

Best Chiefs Players of All Time

The Kansas City Chiefs currently have 18 players inducted into the Football Hall of Fame, with 11 of them spending the majority of their careers in Kansas City. The Chiefs have some of the greatest pass rushers, offensive weapons, and superstars in National Football League history. The Chiefs have been competitors in the NFL since their inception in 1960. They appeared in the first-ever Super Bowl, losing to the Green Bay Packers. They went on to win Superbowl IV in 1970–their only Super Bowl victory to date. These teams, along with many highly competitive Chiefs teams to this day, were permeated with some of the best talents in NFL history.

The Kansas City Chiefs Team History

Unbeknownst to some, the Kansas City Chiefs began in Dallas, Texas. In 1959, Lamar Hunt, a wealthy businessman in search of rivaling the NFL with another league, attempted to purchase and relocate the Chicago Cardinals to his hometown of Dallas, Texas. He failed and approached the NFL about making a new expansion team in Dallas, but was denied. After a year of failure, Hunt established a new league, the American Football League, and created a team of his own called the Dallas Texans. The team would begin playing in 1960.

The Texans went 6–8 in their first season and 8–6 in their second. In their third season, the Texans went 11–3 and played in the AFL Championship, defeating the Houston Oilers 20–17 in overtime. To this day, clocking in at 77 minutes and 54 seconds, it holds the record for the longest championship game in professional football history.

Unfortunately for the team, that was the last game they would ever play under the Texan name. The city of Dallas was not able to keep up with two teams, and despite the Dallas Cowboys only winning nine games in their first three seasons, it was decided that they would stay. The Texans seemed bound for Atlanta or Miami, but the mayor of Kansas City made an offer Hunt couldn't refuse. On May 22, 1963, the Texans were relocated to Kansas City. Four days later, a local contest determined the team's name and the Kansas City Chiefs were born. Since then, the Chiefs have had 18 players inducted into the Hall of Fame, with 11 spending the majority of their careers with the team. Below are the 10 best Kansas City Chiefs players of all time!

Selection Criteria

In order to make it on this list, the players had to have been some of the best players statistically in Chiefs' history. All of the players ranked needed to:

  • Be at the top, or near the top, of their major statistical categories.

  • Have accolades that led the NFL at the time.

  • Have impacted the NFL as a whole, such as a Most Valuable Player Award or leading statistical categories several times.

  • Have impacted the game, or the franchise, in ways that won games with skill, or led to significant changes to the team or league.

Each has their own influences and importance in the team's history, but there's no doubt that these players are the greatest in Kansas City history.

10. Will Shields (1993–2006)

Will Shields is one of the greatest offensive linemen of all time. During his 14-year career, he never missed a game and only missed one start, the first game of his rookie year. He blocked for many prolific running backs, including Priest Holmes, Larry Johnson, and Marcus Allen. During his career, he blocked for five 1,000 yard rushers and five 4,000 yard passers. He currently is tied for the most Pro Bowls played in NFL history and also is second all-time in consecutive games started with 231 straight games, only behind Brett Favre. Shields was selected to 12 straight Pro Bowls between 1995 and 2006, a Chiefs' record. During his career, he blocked on 8 teams that finished their seasons ranked top-10 in offensive yardage. He was elected into the Hall of Fame in 2015 and is a member of the 2000's All-Decade team.

Shields was an ironman who could be counted on to be on the field no matter what. His exemplary skill led to the offensive efficiency of many teams and directly impacted great running backs that probably wouldn't have made it on this list without him. Shields played for years, often through pain and injuries. As a lineman, his skill and talent benefitted many other players because he spent his career protecting quarterbacks and blocking for runningbacks. Shields is the greatest lineman in Chiefs' history and therefore makes the list.

Accolades

  • 12x Pro Bowler
  • 2x First-Team All-Pro
  • 2003 Walter Payton Man of the Year
  • Hall of Fame 2000s All-Decade 2nd Team
  • Hall of Fame Class of 2015

9. Priest Holmes (2001–2007)

Priest Holmes has the greatest three-year stretch of any Chiefs' player in their history. After beginning his career in Baltimore, he signed a minimum contract to join Kansas City in 2001. His first three seasons with the team were incredible. Holmes led the NFL in rushing in 2001 with 1,555 yards and added another 614 yards receiving. He totaled 10 touchdowns that year as well. He was the first-ever undrafted free agent to lead the league in rushing. The following two seasons Holmes rushed for 3,035 yards combined and 48 touchdowns. He also had 1,362 yards and three touchdowns during that time. Despite touching the ball over 950 times in those three years, Holmes only had six fumbles, four of which came in his first year with the Chiefs. In 2004, Holmes was injured and reduced to playing only eight games. Despite this, he still led the league in yards per game with 111 and had 892 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. To this day, Holmes is second all-time in Chiefs' history in rushing yardage, is first in rushing touchdowns, and is first in rushing yards per game.

Holmes' humble beginnings as an undrafted free agent, along with his incredible career statistically, are why he makes the list. Holmes was an unknown commodity who came into the NFL and took it by storm. He's the best running back in Chiefs' history and could have been a Hall of Fame level talent if not for an injury that derailed his prolific career. To this day, when you look at lists of the best players not in the Hall of Fame, Holmes typically sits atop the list.

In 2002, Holmes was awarded the AP Offensive Player of the Year award. He was a three-time Pro Bowler and a three-time First-Team All-Pro. He also won a Super Bowl in 2000 with the Ravens.

8. Willie Lanier (1967–1977)

Willie "Contact" Lanier was one of the most ferocious linebackers in Chiefs' history. His hits would lay a player out cold, and he was feared throughout the NFL. Lanier even had extra padding on his helmet because of his aggressive tackling style, however, it wasn't on the inside of his helmet to protect him, it was on the outside of his helmet to protect his opponents.

He wasn't only known for his ferocity though. Lanier was also one of the league's best coverage linebackers. In his career, he intercepted 27 passes, the most in Chiefs' history by a linebacker. He intercepted a pass in the Chiefs' only Super Bowl victory, setting the team up early in the fourth quarter. He also recovered 18 fumbles in his career. He was well rounded in all areas, leading to many awards.

Lanier was selected to eight Pro Bowls between 1968 and 1975. He was a three-time First-Team All-Pro selection and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1986, becoming the second Chiefs player to be enshrined. He was also the 1972 Walter Payton Man of the Year.

Accolades

  • Chiefs' leader in interceptions at the linebacker position
  • 8x Pro Bowler
  • 3x First-Team All-Pro
  • Hall of Fame class of 1986

7. Emmitt Thomas (1966–1978)

Emmitt Thomas is the best cornerback to ever play for the Chiefs and one of the best ever to play in the NFL. Possibly the most amazing thing about Thomas is that he was an undrafted free agent from Bishop College when he joined the Chiefs. Thomas holds interception records for both a career with 58 and in a season with 12, just 2 shy of the NFL record of 14. He returned 5 interceptions for touchdowns in his career and intercepted a pass in the Chiefs' only Super Bowl victory. He currently sits at eighth all-time in NFL history for interceptions in a career. Thomas led the NFL in interceptions in 1974 with 12, and he led the AFL in interceptions in 1969 with 9. He was selected to 5 Pro Bowls and was a one-time First-Team All-Pro selection. Thomas was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2008. He went on to return to the Chiefs from 2010–2018 as a defensive backs coach. His number, 18, was retired by the Chiefs' organization on October 19th, 2008.

Thomas' amazing career is enough to put him on this list in and of itself, but the fact that he did so as an undrafted player is even more impressive. Thomas is one of the greatest undrafted Hall of Famers to ever play football, and certainly, the best cornerback to play for the Chiefs' franchise. Thomas continued to help the franchise when he returned to coach, passing on his experiences and knowledge to younger defensive backs of the future. His entire life has been about the Kansas City Chiefs, which makes him more than deserving to be a part of the all-time list.

6. Johnny Robinson (1960–1971)

Johnny Robinson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019 as a safety, but he began his career as a running back. Robinson began his first two seasons with over 1,800 all-purpose yards before being moved to safety for the remainder of his career. He played 12 seasons with the Chiefs, three of which were as the Dallas Texans before the team moved.

During his ten years as a safety, Robinson intercepted 57 passes. He led the league in interceptions twice, both times with ten interceptions. He was also part of the Texans championship in 1962 and the Chiefs' only Super Bowl victory in 1969. In games that he intercepted a pass, the Chiefs had a remarkable 35-3-1 record. While one interception may not seem to impact a game strong enough to attribute to a winning record, in games Robinson did not intercept a pass the team was 22–23–3. Robinson is, by far, the greatest safety to ever play for the Chiefs–the competition doesn't even come close.

Robinson was a well-rounded player with various talents. Even though he excelled as a safety, he also played successfully on offense for two years. His impact on defense directly influenced the team's success, which is evident from their winning record when he intercepted a pass. His talents helped to bolster the elite defensive unit that won the team's first Super Bowl, as well as an AFL Championship. He wasn't just the best safety in Chiefs' history, he was also the greatest safety period at that point in the NFL's history.

Accolades

  • Second all-time in team history for interceptions: 57 (A First for a safety.)
  • 2x league-leader in interceptions
  • 7x Pro Bowler
  • 6x First-Team All-Pro
  • 1x NFL Champion
  • 1x Super Bowl Champion
  • Hall of Fame class of 2019

5. Buck Buchanan (1963–1975)

Buck Buchanan was picked first overall in the 1963 draft. He was the first African-American to be selected first in the draft, and he became one of the Chiefs' best defensive linemen of all time. Buchanan was an all-around athlete. He was clocked running a 4.9-second 40-yard dash, and a 10.2-second 100-yard dash, making him a threat from goalline to goalline. His size, along with his speed, made it difficult for linemen to guard him. He was 6'7" and 287 pounds. With that size and speed, he was able to influence the game in many ways.

In 1967, he batted down 16 passes at the line of scrimmage! He was also dangerous when rushing the QB. Sacks weren't a recorded statistic during his career, but it is known that he sacked the quarterback in the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory over the Vikings. He was an eight-time Pro Bowler and a four-time First-Team All-Pro. He was also a two-time AFL Champion and a one-time Super Bowl champion!

Buchanan paired his talents with others on this list, such as Bobby Bell and Len Dawson, to lead the Chiefs to the Super Bowl. Buchanan was one of the greatest athletes to play for the Chiefs. It's uncommon for a defensive end to run so fast, which led to him being a terror for other teams. He effected QBs in many ways, keeping them on their toes. If he wasn't smashing them into the ground, he was knocking their passes down at the line. Buchanan was the greatest defensive end in Chiefs' history, as well as one of the most talented players they've ever had. His career was decorated with accolades and honors, making him very deserving of being a top-10 player of all-time.

4. Bobby Bell (1963–1974)

Bobby Bell played defensive end for the first two years of his career in Kansas City. He was then moved to play as an outside linebacker where he excelled for the rest of his career. Bell was a superb pass rusher, finishing his career with 40 sacks, which places him solidly in the top-10 in Chiefs' history. Despite this, Bell played in pass-coverage more often than he rushed the passer. He was a very talented coverage man, snagging 26 interceptions from the linebacker position, only one shy of Willie Lanier for the most by a linebacker in team history. However, Bell does hold the franchise record for interceptions returned for a touchdown with six. Bell is one of the few players in NFL history who has at least 20 sacks and 20 interceptions in their career.

Bell was a threat on defense in every aspect of the game. He could rush the passer, cover receivers and tight ends, and be a threat to take the ball and score. As a jack-of-all-trades, Bell led the team to many victories and three championships. He helped to create a dynasty-level defense that struck fear in opponents for over a decade. He's the most well-rounded and talented defender in Chiefs' history.

The Chiefs retired his number, 78, and Bell was the first-ever Chief player to be elected to the Hall of Fame in 1986. He's also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-'70s Team. He was a nine-time Pro Bowler and a six-time First-Team All-Pro. Bell was also a two-time AFL Champion and a part of the Chiefs only Super Bowl victory.

3. Len Dawson (1963–1975)

Before the hype of Patrick Mahomes, there was the illustrious career of Len Dawson. Dawson currently sits atop the totem pole of QBs in Kansas City as the greatest QB in franchise history. Not only did Dawson win three championships during his career, but he also was an elite passer throughout his time. He led the league in completion percentage 8 times out of his 14 years with the Chiefs or Texans. He also led the league in touchdowns four times! This made him one of the most accurate players who was likely to score at any moment.

Dawson currently sits first overall in passing yardage for the franchise with 28,507 yards. The next closest QB sits nearly 7,000 yards shy of that mark. He's also one of three Chiefs QBs to ever have a perfect passer rating in a game. Dawson led the Chiefs to two Super Bowls, winning one and earning MVP honors in that game. He was elected to seven Pro Bowls and was a two-time First-Team All-Pro. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1987.

2. Tony Gonzalez (1997–2008)

Tony Gonzalez isn't just the greatest tight end in Chiefs' history, he's the greatest tight end in NFL history. Gonzalez came into the league in 1997 when he was drafted 13th overall. He didn't really break out until his third year when he had 849 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns. From that point on Gonzalez, revolutionized the tight end position. Before Gonzalez, tight ends were typically utilized as extra blockers on the field, occasionally catching a ball when needed. He became one of the best receiving options in the NFL, with his size and speed creating matchups that other teams couldn't plan for. He was too fast for linebackers and too large for safeties or cornerbacks to cover. Gonzalez became a master receiver in the NFL, even leading the league in receptions in 2004 with 102 catches.

This combination of abilities, along with inventive coaching schemes that utilized his talents, led to him leading the franchise records in nearly every receiving category. Gonzalez leads the Chiefs' franchise in yardage with 10,940 yards, receiving touchdowns with 76, and receptions with 916 catches. The next closest receiver in Chiefs' history is more than 400 receptions behind Gonzalez's record.

Gonzalez finished his career with Atlanta, but while he was in Kansas City he was a ten-time Pro Bowler and four-time First-Team All-Pro. He holds the all-time league record with the most yards and touchdowns for a tight end and is sixth all-time in receiving yardage for any position. Gonzalez is also third all-time in receptions in NFL history, behind only Larry Fitzgerald and Jerry Rice. He was elected to 14 Pro Bowls and was a six-time First-Team All-Pro. He was on the 1997 All-Rookie team. In 2019, Gonzalez was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-2000s Team. He changed the tight end position forever with his amazing career.

1. Derrick Thomas (1989–1999)

Derrick Thomas was an outside linebacker who was drafted fourth overall in the 1989 NFL draft. He came into the league in dominating fashion, earning the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. In his rookie season, Thomas had seventy-five tackles, ten sacks, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. The next season he would have one of the greatest seasons for an outside linebacker. Thomas led the league with 20 sacks, 6 forced fumbles, and set the all-time record for sacks in a single game with 7. Thomas went on to accumulate a team record of 126.5 sacks during his career. He also holds the team record for safeties with 3 and the record for forced fumbles with 41.

Thomas' life was sadly taken too soon when he died in a car accident in February of 2000. He was only 32 years old and still playing strong at the time. You can still find fans throughout Arrowhead Stadium that wear his jersey today. The team has retired his number, 58, and named their team MVP award after him. Thomas was a great example on the field and off, also earning the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 1993.

Thomas was elected to nine Pro Bowls and two First-Team All-Pros. He was the Defensive Rookie of the Year. In 2009, Thomas was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and is a part of the Hall of Fame All-1990s Team. The memory of Derrick Thomas will live in Arrowhead forever.

Honorable Mentions

Patrick Mahomes (2017–Present)

Mahomes very well could be leading this list one day. His talent and ability early in his career have shown he is more than capable of continuing to be a top quarterback in the NFL. Mahomes sat his first year in Kansas City, but the following year, they traded QB Alex Smith to the Redskins and decided to start Mahomes, trusting him to take the reins. The decision turned out to be better than they could have imagined.

Mahomes ended his first complete season as a starter by leading the league for 50 touchdowns and throwing for 5,097 yards. He was the league MVP and became the 11th QB in NFL history to throw for over 5,000 yards. He was only the third QB to ever throw for 50 or more touchdowns, tying Tom Brady for the second-most in a season in NFL history. If Mahomes can continue this level of success throughout his career, he'll easily be at the top of the Chiefs' greatest players list, and possibly one of the greatest NFL players ever.

Abner Haynes (1960–1964)

Abner Haynes was an elite level running back who began his career as a Dallas Texan before the team became the Kansas City Chiefs. During his time with the two teams, he amassed 3,814 yards and 39 touchdowns in 5 years. He also had 2,739 yards receiving along with 17 touchdowns during that time. By today's standards, that total may seem average, but Haynes led the league in rushing yardage one of those years, and led the league in touchdowns three times!

Haynes was a versatile back who dominated the league early in his career. He won the rookie of the year award and the league MVP in 1960. During his career, he was selected to three Pro Bowls and was a two-time First-Team All-Pro selection. Haynes still holds multiple Chiefs' records to this day, including rushing touchdowns in a game with 13, most touchdowns in a game with 5, most total yards in his career with 8,442, most total yards in a season with 2,100, and many more!

Jamaal Charles (2008–2016)

Jamaal Charles was one of the most prolific running backs in Chiefs' history. He played for the Chiefs for nine years, averaging 5.5 yards per carry over that time. Charles currently sits atop the Chiefs' franchise list for rushing yards with 7,260 yards. He's also fourth in franchise history with 43 rushing touchdowns. Charles was a real-life video game, rushing for unimaginably long runs and catching multiple balls a game. Charles had incredible speed and could make a play at any time on the field. During his career, Charles averaged 5.4 yards per carry, which is the highest in the modern era of football, even ahead of greats like Jim Brown and Barry Sanders. Charles was a four-time Pro Bowler and a two-time First-Team All-Pro.
