The Kansas City Chiefs have needed help on the defensive front for years now, whether it be at the defensive tackle position or the EDGE. The Chiefs needed that last year against the Bengals, too.

Now, they have added just what they need. They drafted George Karlaftis out of Purdue in this past draft to play EDGE and signed veteran and two-time Pro Bowler Carlos Dunlap to play opposite of Frank Clark.

While the Chiefs made the moves they needed, now they have to go out and get the job done. Dunlap is confident he can, and has several goals set that he’d like to accomplish before retiring, and Kansas City is the perfect place.

Dunlap wants to accomplish certain things in Kansas City

Dunlap has had a pretty good career so far in his 12 years. He played for the Cincinnati Bengals for 11 years before joining the Seattle Seahawks for a season and a half. Now, on his third team, Dunlap has goals he’d like to obtain before calling it quits.

He said the first he’d like to do is surpass 100 career sacks, which shouldn’t be hard as he does currently have 96. It won’t be hard to get four in a defense like this one, where Spagnuolo will give Dunlap freedom to try and wreck the game on the edge.

Dunlap has never had a season under four sacks. He has had a season with 4.5, but that was his second year in the NFL.

”I try to average eight sacks a year, and I want even more than that,” Dunlap told reporters on Thursday.

Dunlap also said he wanted to win one playoff game, and a Super Bowl before retiring, both of which can be done in Kansas City, especially the first one.

The 6’6” defensive end will be very helpful to the Chiefs this year, as he is nearly exactly what they need. Another thing people aren’t quite thinking about enough is that he is the perfect mentor to Karlaftis.

“I didn’t have the greatest vets in my day… For me, for him, I think the best thing I can give him [Karlaftis] is my perspective from experience to add to what he already does well,” Dunlap explained when asked how he could be of help to Karlaftis.

“Clearly he was a first-round pick… So he has something that they saw that they like and they see the potential in him.”

To hear Dunlap talk about Karlaftis already should make fans very excited. This season is going to be a ton of fun.
