The combination of a new GM and a new head coach usually spells lots of action in free agency, especially when the team has as much salary-cap space as the Chiefs do. GM Scott Pioli knows his team has many needs, but he's also a master of waiting until the first wave of signings is over and prices settle down. No one will have a better feel for the hundreds of free agents still on the market.
As we all know, Pioli gave up the 34th overall pick in the draft to acquire QB Matt Cassel and LB Mike Vrabel from the Patriots. Pioli still has the Nos. 3 and 67 picks to parlay into more selections if he needs. The Chiefs also are starting to bring in free agents such as WR Bobby Engram, LB Clark Haggans and DBs Keith Davis and Travis Daniels for visits. Those players fit the mold under which Pioli operated in New England. He's looking for bargains, and he's sure to find a few to bolster his roster depth and special teams.
I could see Pioli being very active in the bottom-feeding business, even after the draft. Also look for more trades with the Patriots and Dolphins.
