Tranquill signed a three-year, $19 million contract with the Chiefs on Thursday, Jordan Schultz of reports.

Tranquill joined Kansas City last offseason and stepped into a significant role in the defense -- particularly when either Nick Bolton or Willie Gay missed time. He'll now be locked into a long-term deal with the team and see the field plenty moving forward.

Posts another solid campaign

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Tranquill compiled 79 tackles (54 solo), 4.5 sacks and forced two fumbles during the 2023 regular season.

While the Chiefs still counted on Tranuill to produce when he was on the field, his 552 snaps in 2023 pale in comparison to the 935 he logged a season ago in the final year of his rookie deal with the Chargers, hence the nearly halving of his 146 tackles from 2022. Tranquill's contract granted him just a season in KC, so he'll head to the offseason looking for a new deal in 2024.

Set to suit up Sunday

Tranquill (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's Week 15 game against New England.

Tranquill sat out last Sunday's loss to the Bills while in concussion protocol, but he appears to be past the issue, as the Chiefs didn't give him an injury designation for Week 15. The veteran should thus be able to suit up and resume his near every-down role this Sunday against the Patriots. Prior to an early exit against Green Bay in Week 13 due to the head injury, Tranquill had logged at least seven tackles in a season-high four straight games.

Full participant Wednesday

Tranquill (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Tranquill was ruled out for Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bills after sustaining a concussion in Week 13 against the Packers. His full participation Wednesday indicates that he is on the right track to return for Week 15 against the Patriots. Tranquill has 73 tackles (51 solo), including 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 12 games this season.

Missing Week 14

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-08

Tranquill (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The 28-year-old linebacker suffered a concussion during the Chiefs' Week 13 loss to the Packers, so it's no surprise that he's been ruled out ahead of Sunday's affair. With Tranquill missing time, expect Leo Chenal and Jack Cochrane to see increased work in Kansas City's linebacker corps.

Remains in protocols

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-06

Tranquill remains in concussion protocols Wednesday and will not practice.

Tranquill suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Packers and is still working through the league's five-step process to gain clearance to play. He'll likely need to get back on the field and ultimately log a full practice Thursday or Friday to have a chance to play against the Bills in Week 14.

Suffers concussion on SNF

Tranquill (concussion) won't return to Sunday's game against the Packers.

Tranquill left early in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. Tests confirmed the concussion, so he has been ruled out for the remainder of the game. Tranquill will need to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in order to play in Week 14 against the Bills.

Being evaluated for concussion

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Tranquill is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday against the Packers.

Tranquill left the game on the opening series and headed to the locker room, where he is being evaluated for a concussion. Jack Cochrane is likely to see additional playing time for the duration of Tranquill's absence.

Tallies sack in third straight game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-31

Tranquill notched 11 tackles (seven solo), one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Denver.

Tranquill has cemented himself as a legitimate pillar of Kansas City's defense, once again leading the team in tackles. His sack came while matched up against a scrambling Russell Wilson on fourth-and-short, as he managed to stop the quarterback short of the first down line. The Chiefs will need Tranquill to keep up his production Week 9 versus Miami.
