Good morning. Another day of Kansas City Chiefs news is waiting. Life is good.

"I had a chance (Tuesday) afternoon to speak with Gov. (Jay) Nixon. He described the devastation as something beyond his wildest dreams. Having seen it on TV, I totally understand. Our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers really go out to the citizens of Joplin and Reading because we know they’re struggling so much right now."

So the Chiefs were busy again Wednesday collecting bottled water, cash donations and other items for tornado relief. They collected more than five semi trucks full of water, or about 150,000 bottles.

And what of the free agency record of the Chiefs? Two of the best running backs to wear a Kansas City uniform came through free agency in Priest Holmes (above) and Marcus Allen. There are others that had a big effect on the team in the last 15 to 20 years.

Here are the best unrestricted free agents the Chiefs have signed in the free agency period since 1993. Plus, there's one extra from the long forgotten Plan B free agency that came in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In 2009, the Chiefs gave up a second-rounder for quarterback Matt Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel. Because the Chiefs lacked yards-after-the-catch ability and playmakers, Cassel added only 0.2 points a game to Kansas City's offense, which averaged 18.2 points a game. However, in Cassel's second season, the Chiefs rose to 10-6 and he went to the Pro Bowl.
