3 former Dolphins provide Super Bowl boost to Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs saw value in a trio of players that were essentially castoffs from what was one of the least-successful franchises in the NFL over the past 10 years, and their decision to pick them up when just about nobody else was calling is a big reason why they're playing in the Super Bowl.

The biggest move was picking up Damien Williams, who has gone from journeyman running back to an integral part of one of the league's best offenses. Backup quarterback Matt Moore filled in admirably when Pat Mahomes was hurt this season, and safety Jordan Lucas played on just about every Chiefs special teams unit.

All three once played for the Dolphins.
