So where will the leadership come from in Kansas City? One person ready to take the reins will be running back Spencer Ware.
“There’s a lot of responsibility as far as showing leadership out here on the field and off the field,” Ware recently said, via the team’s official website. “No pressure though. I go out there every day and work how I was when I was behind Marshawn [Lynch] in Seattle and how I did when I was behind Jamaal [Charles] when I came here. It’s the same mindset and the same work ethic, I’m just a little bit older and a little more mature.”
In Ware’s second season, he gained 921 yards in 14 regular-season games. The 25-year-old Cincinnati native enters his third season as the No. 1 option on the depth chart. Whether and to what extent Ware builds on his 2016 performance depends on the skills and abilities of Charcandrick West and rookie Kareem Hunt.
