Kansas City Chiefs are the Third Most Active Team in Free Agency

Only the Denver Broncos (13) and the Detroit Lions (9) signed more free agents from other teams than the Kansas City Chiefs (8).  Not only were the Chiefs active in signings UFAs from other teams, they were efficient picking up multiple starters.  Here's how the Chiefs eight UFAs are looking:

Starter Starter Competition Depth
WR Bobby Engram LB Monty Beisel WR Terrance Copper
LB Zach Thomas TE Sean Ryan CB Travis Daniels
G Mike Goff C Eric Ghiaciuc

Not bad.  We're pretty sure there's three new starters there with the potential of six.

Via Mr. Gretz,the Seahawks and 49ers each lost seven unrestricted free agents (UFAs) to other teams.  The Chiefs had six UFAs heading into the offseason.  As a group, there hasn't been much action.

As they were a month ago, the three remaining UFAs are still waiting for a team to call.

As Gretz notes, there were 55 restricted free agents (RFAs) and for the first time since free agency was created, none of them switched teams instead signing the offer sheet from their original team.  The Chiefs had three RFAs -WR Jeff Webb, C Rudy Niswanger and S Jarrad Page - all re-signed with the team.

Notice the three most active teams signing UFAs all have a new GM and head coach.  The least active signing UFAs from other teams?  Carolina (0), Green Bay (1), Indianapolis (1), Minnesota (1) and San Diego (1).
