KC Chiefs: Is Chad Henne sitting on a hot seat?

When the Kansas City Chiefs officially turned the page to the Patrick Mahomes chapter of the team’s history, it was also the first season without Alex Smith since 2013. For the Chiefs to officially move on to a bright young starter as the potential franchise face, it also meant that the QB roles needed to be reversed—that a veteran would soon be holding a clipboard on Sundays. For the last few years, that man was Chad Henne.
