The Kansas City Chiefs are a little tight up against the cap.
OK, they’re really tight up against the cap.
Two weeks beyond the legal tampering period, ESPN’s Field Yates shared how much salary cap space each of the 32 NFL teams had. The Chiefs had the least amount in the league by a mile.
They had — wait for it — $177 in cap space.
Hey, they won the Super Bowl this past season, so it’s not like they need to undergo a roster overhaul. Still, that didn’t stop folks on Twitter from absolutely crushing them.
Chiefs couldn't buy a PS4 Pro for the locker room right now

Of course, the Chiefs can make moves to clear cap space, so it’s not like they’re completely stuck.
Still — $177!!
