Chiefs free agency: Tyson Jackson talking to Chiefs, others

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs DE Tyson Jackson is set to be a free agent this afternoon and reportedly has multiple suitors. Can the Chiefs re-sign him or should they let him walk?

The last update on Kansas City Chiefs free agent DE Tyson Jackson came earlier this month when he said in a radio interview that he expected talks with the Chiefs to pick up soon. According to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Tyson Jackson is indeed doing some talking ... with the Chiefs and other teams.

The important part here is that the Chiefs are still involved in this. Free agency starts at 3 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) this afternoon, at which point Jackson will be free to sign anywhere. But before that, the Chiefs are the only ones who can actually sign him. Tick-tock...

The connection to the Falcons is obvious -- former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli now works in Atlanta's personnel department. Chiefs fans know the Dolphins have plenty of cash as they're reportedly set to give Branden Albert a deal that pays him $10 million a year. The Browns are also swimming in cash.

I'm of the mindset that the Chiefs should bring Jackson back. The Chiefs already have a few starting jobs up in the air and signing Jackson would eliminate one of those. Sure, they could upgrade ... but it's about allocating your resources in the best ways possible.
