Just In: Fans Favorite Stand Out Star Reveals He Wants to Leave Chiefs

The Chiefs had a phenomenally successful offseason, but they did lose a Super Bowl starter in Nick Allegretti, who signed with the Commanders in free agency for three years and $16 million.

Explaining Chiefs OL Nick Allegretti's four-year qualifying contract

Allegretti became a fan favorite in Chiefs Kingdom after filling in for the injured Joe Thuney, and he recently revealed why he left Kansas City.

While money was undoubtedly a consideration for the former seventh-round pick, Allegretti is focused on a starting position on the Commanders’ offensive line.

As Allegretti stated, “I have a lot of respect for the guys in Kansas City.” I enjoyed my work there, but I believe I had reached a stage in my career where I wanted to come in and start in Week 1. That is my goal for coming to Washington.”

It’s difficult to blame him. Thuney and Trey Smith are firmly set as starters, and Allegretti is unlikely to see a starting role in Kansas City before 2025. Cashing in his chips with the hopes of starting in Washington makes a lot of sense, especially because his new compensation is comparable to a starting position.

It’s disappointing to see a valuable depth component who has been with the squad for so long leave, but Allegretti deserves the chance. I’d be surprised if anyone in Kansas City was upset with him for the decision. In fact, I’d imagine that the entire Chiefs Kingdom wishes him and his family the best.

He leaves the club as a Super Bowl champion and starter, and he will be remembered as a great in Kansas City regardless of the outcome.
