Baltimore Ravens Cuts Could Interest Kansas City Chiefs

KANSAS CITY MO - JANUARY 09: Tight end Todd Heap #86 of the Baltimore Ravens makes a catch for a first down in the second quarter of their 2011 AFC wild card playoff game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on January 9 2011 in Kansas City Missouri.

Actually, the Baltimore Ravens cuts could interest darn near every team in the league. They're one of the most talented rosters in the league and they've began the process of informing players of their release when the league year opens.

Those players include RB Willie McGahee, TE Todd Heap, NT Kelly Gregg and WR Derrick Mason.

Could any of them fit in Kansas City? GM Scott Pioli should have these guys fresh in his memory after last January's playoff loss to the Ravens.

On McGahee and Heap...I'd say probably not. The Chiefs have RB Thomas Jones, a veteran like McGahee, already in place. At tight end, the Chiefs have one of the real up-and-comers in the league in TE Tony Moeaki so they're good there. (I can already tell by my Twitter feed that a good chunk of Chiefs fans will want Heap.)

On Gregg and Mason...I could see a little bit of interest here. Both positions are ones where the Chiefs have rookies coming in that could use a veteran as a bridge in 2011. I'm not sure if either player would be interest in KC (or, on that point, if KC is even interested in them) but it's something to at least keep an eye on.

We'll see if the Chiefs choose to take a look at any of these guys in the coming days when free agency starts. Some teams out there will get a nice short-term boost from a few of these players.
