Kansas City Chiefs Re-Sign Wharton and Winchester

By Jayson Henderson

The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed defensive tackle Tershawn Wharton and long snapper James Winchester.

Wharton, entering his fifth season with the team, contributed 17 pressures, five quarterback hits, and two sacks across 17 games last year, proving valuable during the Chiefs’ playoff campaign.

Winchester, now in his 10th season with the Chiefs, remains a seasoned player, having participated in 147 regular-season games and 22 playoff matchups during his tenure. He stands as the team’s second-longest tenured member behind tight end Travis Kelce.

Both players join a group of re-signed teammates, including defensive tackle Chris Jones, linebacker Drue Tranquill, safety Deon Bush, and defensive tackle Mike Pennel.
