$45 Million Defender Named Veach’s Biggest FA Miss
A large part of the credit for the success the Chiefs have had over the last five years belongs to general manager Brett Veach, who’s done a phenomenal job of getting the right talent in the building via free agency and the draft.
But that doesn’t mean Veach hasn’t had some misses along the way.
Lucas Strozinksy of Arrowhead Pride recently went over the three biggest free agent misses by Brett Veach. Along with defensive tackle Jarran Reed and defensive end Alex Okafor, Strozinsky named veteran linebacker Anthony Hitchens as one of his biggest misses.
Hitchens signed a five-year, $45 million contract with Kansas City in 2018. That deal gave Hitchens over $20 million in guarantees.
“Even though he played an important role outside off-the-field, this signing is one that will not reflect well on Veach,” Strozinsky wrote on June 25. “Hitchens earned a horrendous 37.5 PFF overall defensive grade ($) his first year as a Chief in 2018. Yes, a lot of that can be explained by not being a great fit with Bob Sutton. Under Steve Spagnuolo in 2019, 2020, and 2021, he earned slightly better grades of 44.4, 49.7, and 52.2, respectively. Despite the poor season grades, against the Bengals in the 2022 AFC Championship, his last game as a Chief turned out to be his highest-graded game as a Chief at an elite 92.3 overall.”
Strozinsky further explained his stance on Hitchens making the list.
“This may be a spicy take for a lot of fans to include him on this list, but in my opinion, Hitchens did not live up to his contract,” he wrote. “His average cap hit across his four years in Kansas City was about $8 million, good enough for approximately 15th among linebackers in AAV today. Did Hitchens play like a top-15 linebacker in Kansas City? To me, he did not. The Chiefs do owe a lot to him for the leadership role he played but he was not worth the contract he signed for the Chiefs in terms of on-field production alone.”
