Wrapping Up The Day In Chiefs News

This is two straight days with quite a bit of Kansas City Chiefs. On Monday, it was the Stanford Routt signing. And on Tuesday it was GM Scott Pioli's interview with 810 WHB's Border Patrol. With so much stuff going on, here are a few links to the highlights of our from today:

  • Dwayne Bowe likely getting the franchise tag. This was me saying what everyone else was (and still is) saying. Bowe will be a Chief in 2012. I didn't realize the Chiefs GM would basically confirm that later in the morning.
  • Pioli: Stanford Routt signing doesn't affect Brandon Carr. The Chiefs still want Carr back, that I agree with. I also think the Routt signing is a good sign Carr is on his way out. You can't look at it independently, though. This is a combination of a lot of factors: Carr and the Chiefs not having a deal, Routt, a good player in the Chiefs mind, being available.
  • The rest after the jump.
  • Routt on Chiefs: 'I don't see why we can't win'. Routt talked to ESPN's Josina Anderson after the signing. He also talked with Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports, which is all I know of so far.
  • KC Chiefs salary cap explained. Yes, the Chiefs have $63 million in cap space right now. But before the league year starts another $25 million will be taken up via escalators and incentives from current players. So the Chiefs real number is $37 million. Still a lot.
  • Don't forget about compensatory picks. Comp picks, something that doesn't get much air time in the NFL. Pretty interesting stuff though if you ask me (which you didn't).
  • Pioli: Chiefs want Bowe back 'one way or another'. In other words, whether it's the franchise tag or a longterm deal, the Chiefs want Bowe back.
