Spencer Ware emerging as a leader for the Chiefs

Jamaal Charles is gone. So is Jeremy Maclin. Alex Smith may be, sooner than later.

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.

    he got a little banged up down the stretch last year and the chiefs’ run blocking wasn’t great, but this guy runs as hard as anyone in the league and i think his best days are still ahead of him.

    the addition of kareem hunt should help him stay fresher, and that’s a brutal one-two punch for defenses to try and stop all game and all season.

    I think it’going to be Kareem Hunt’s job before mid-year.

    Chiefs defense is scary already. If their offense can score more touchdowns, then their easily a wildcard team and possibly the division winner again.

    But it’s going to be a dog fight because Seimen of the Broncos looks like he’s taken the next step in becoming a better QB.

    Can he throw the ball?
