If anything he would improve our ability to stop the run.
the chiefs employ a 3-4 base defense.
A 4 man front has more fatties at the LOS than a 3 man front which makes it easier to defend the run.
Here is an example of the weight difference for a typical NFL defenses:
3 man front: Donald (285), Poe (350), walker/devito (305) = 940lbs
4 man front: 285 end, poe (350), Donald (285), 300 end = 1220
the defensive line is lining up against 5 x 300lb offensive lineman = 1500 lbs.
