By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"2014 recap: It wasn't a good season for the Chiefs at these positions by any measure. Their wide receivers were last in the league in catches, yardage and touchdowns.

5. Lamar Hunt: Color Blind

By Bob Moore - kcchiefs.com

"Take a look at a team photo of your favorite NFL team in the late to early 1960s. It is predominantly composed of white players. In one team picture from as late as 1962 there will not be a single black player.
