It was free agency day around here yesterday as we went through all of the Kansas City Chiefs 22 free-agents-to-be and determined who the Chiefs must keep, who they should keep if it makes sense and who shouldn't be a priority.

Here's the list I came up with (click on the link for the analysis):

Must keep: LB Jovan Belcher (RFA), CB Brandon Carr and WR Dwayne Bowe

Keep if it makes sense: S Reshard Langford (ERFA), QB Kyle Orton, RB Jackie Battle, FB Le'Ron McClain, TE Leonard Pope, DE Wallace Gilberry, DL Amon Gordon, DT Kelly Gregg, CB Travis Daniels and S Jon McGraw.

Not a priority: QB Tyler Palko (ERFA), TE Jake O'Connell (RFA), RB Thomas Jones, WR Jerheme Urban, TE Anthony Becht, OT Ryan O'Callaghan, OT Barry Richardson, C Casey Wiegmann and S Sabby Piscitelli.

I think most of the disagreement I've seen comes from folks switching up the must keep and keep if it makes sense groups. Others thought O'Callaghan or Richardson should be on the keep if it makes sense list.

So out of the 22 free agents, how many do you think will be back next year? Remember there will be surprise cuts, guys signed in free agency and of course the draft.
