Is 2012 the time Pioli must jump into Free Agency?

Jason LaCanfora wrote a piece on NFL.com talking about 'Cap Casualty Season,' and highlighting some possible cap cuts. But he brings up an interesting point about the future tone of Free agency... "In fact, I strongly believe by 2013 or 2014 we see most teams re-investing even more heavily on their own talent to meet that 90 percent threshold, which would mean even less prime, mid-20s talent getting anywhere near the market. Those who do become available will carry significant concerns with injury, attitude, work ethic or off-field activities. It will make even more sense to spend on those players you already know and have developed as the economics of this new CBA play out in the coming years, and the revenue streams continue to pour in. But in the mean time, there will be a bloodletting of talent, and those purges will only increase after the combine, with some players willing to restructure during February meetings with team officials and others awaiting their chance to test the market." We still have a few Chiefs we want re-signed. Hopefully it gets done, but if not, the free agent class at those positions would provide adequate replacements. But outside of that, with the rolled over cap money, does Pioli need to pick up his free agents this year? Does the new CBA change our free agency approach?Ward, Newman and Cooley highlight "Cap Casualty Season"
