Finally, a (semi) official list of free agents! As I perused Jason LaCanfora’s list of potential free agents (NFL Network), one name jumped out at me; WR Jacoby Jones, from the Texans. He’s been in the league four years. He has good size (6’2”, 210) and speed (he returned kicks). Most importantly, he had 51 catches in 2010. He was, I believe, a third round pick from a small college, Lane U. This guy is just entering his prime years. This is a player who would solve our #2 WR problem. If Houston doesn’t tag him, I hope the Chiefs move quickly on this guy!
While checking out the list, I saw two other names that caught my attention; OT Jared Gaither, from the Ravens, and NT Aubrayo Franklin, from the 49’ers. These guys could solidify two other positions on the roster, leaving the team free to address the center position, OLB, and perhaps a NT in the draft.
Most likely, there will be no FA action until the CBA is settled. If and when there is a settlement, and the Commish establishes a FA signing period, the Chiefs need to move quickly and decisively to improve the roster. What say, y’awl?
