Possible Improvements Via Free Agency

Offense 

  • QB: None, Matt Cassel, Tyler Thigpen, and Chase Patton or Brodie Croyle make this one of the most solid positions on the Chiefs roster
  • FB: None, Mike Cox was very impressive last year. He showed small flashes that he could catch the ball and was a very good lead blocker amidst a wary offensive line. It always feels good to get a solid player in rookie free agency
  • RBBC: With the drafting of Javarris Williams the Chiefs now have a smash and dash RBBC in Charles and Williams. Now there isn't a single guy in free agency (and not much in the league for that matter) that plays the RB position who can outrun Jamaal Charles, however the market for a smash player runs deeper than our 7th round selection. Guys like Duece McAllister, Edgrin James, and Travis Henry could serve as good half season starters while Williams gets comfy at the pro level. However in my opinion none of the above listed are better than Larry Johnson so all of this argument is contingent on whether or not Larry gets cut.
  • RWR: Dwayne Bowe has the job locked up even if we trade foe Braylon Edwards or Anquan Boldin, Bowe will be the leader of a soon to be great receiving core for many years. 
  • LWR: This spot is wide open. Mark Bradley, when healthy is a dangerous #2 but he has never shown the ability to maintain health. Intriguing veterans include Marty Booker, Amani Toomer, Reggie Williams. But they would likely come in the relief of the absence of Bradley before they come in to compete with him. 
  • Slot: Bobby Engram is one of the best at the position and he pretty much as this position locked up. If Engram gets injured again candidates to take the position include Matt Jones and Justin McCareins.  
  • TE 1: At this junction Brad Cottam is our best option he's big fast and strong. Then again so was Leonard Pope in Arizona and not much amounted from that. TE just isn't an important position for the Chiefs anymore
  • LT: Branden Alberts is the best option at LT no questions asked.
  • LG: If he plays Brian Waters is easily the third or fourth best guard in the league however Waters is unhappy with the new Chiefs regime. Damien Macintosh would likely slide to LG in Waters' absence seeing that the free agent market offers an injury prone 30 year old as the best guard left.
  • C: Rudy Niswanger was absolutely horrid at Center last season. Hwever we picked up Bill Muir who is a solid offensive line coach and it intrigues me to see if Muir will teach Rudy how to throw all that weight around. 
  • RG: We have a solid starter in Mike Goff his presence will surely help whoever our young RT is.
  • RT: This is one of those positions that is wide open. Damien Macintosh is the incumbent starter at this position but has a keen possibility of losing his job after giving up nearly 8 sacks last season. Chiefs that may unseat him include; Barry Richardson, Herb Taylor, and newly drafted Collin Brown. Free agent candidates Jon Runyan, Levi Jones and Mark Tauscher are all more established starters at the RT position than any of our current potential starters.
I don't know enough about our new 3-4 under so I'll stop with the offense tell me what you guys think
