Our next free agent signing should be...
LB Donnie Edwards.
We need help at LB. Donnie Edwards is one of the best linebackers in the league and brings lots of experience. I know we just cut him, but I'm sure most of that had to do with the fact that his contract was huge and he was injured a lot last year.
The fact of the matter is that for his entire career until last year Donnie Edwards was one of the most reliable linebackers in the league. Maybe its because he's getting old or maybe it was a one year fluke. In recent interviews Donnie says he still has some years left in the tank, and frankly I believe him.
He has experience in both the 3-4 and the 4-3. He has good chemistry with the team. He already owns a house in KC. He would probably come cheaper since there hasn't been a lot of interest for him around the league and he'd be getting to stay and retire in KC. We need a linebacker and he needs a team to play for. He's the kind of guy Pioli wants: someone who loves football and wants to play for KC.
