Kansas City has one of the premier NFL franchises that handles team captains a little differently.
The captain is not selected at the beginning of each season as they are with many other teams. Instead, ahead of a playoff run, the Chiefs gather and vote for the captains of the team. It is a tradition in which hard work, effort and leadership are regularly recognized by peers throughout the season. The coaching staff has no input in this matter, it has been voted on by the players in all the locker rooms.
Chiefs Announced its six team captains for 2020 On Twitter on Friday. There is representation from all three stages of the game and many players who are reelected from the postseason of 2019.
