All I've heard is "look what happened last year late in free agency, Dorsey knows what he's doing". I'm not too positive on what has happened. I'm not talking about losing 5 starters. Tyson Jackson wasn't a 3rd overall pick, Stephenson plays well enough to start over Albert and cheaper. Swartz wasn't as good as Jeff Allen and now we can move fisher back to left tackle. One guard signed or drafted and we have the same if not better offensive line. Mccluster was a by product of Dave toubs new tootaledge.
All of that aside, I'm really upset with the lack of creativity, if the cowboys can restructure tony romo and save millions on the cap without taking any of his money (he will be paid the same), they adjusted it to be a signing bonus instead of against the cap, then why can't John Dorsey do the exact same thing and restructure/extend Eric berry. They also could of have Alex smith a contract, say 4 years (same time frame as Andy Reid) and create a bigger cash singing bonus to reduce his cap hit on this years cap number. We started with almost 10 million, this would have created at least 6 million saved.
That could've been 16 million free, ding ding. Jarius Byrd just signed for a little more than 9 million per year with the saints, mike Mitchell much cheaper-still a viable option over Kendrick Lewis. I'm just amazed this front office couldn't come up with some way to create space and sign a free safety, not to mention have enough cap space left to get Emmanuel sanders or Hakeem nicks or make a run on golden Tate, instead rumors swindling around that the chiefs are interested in the grandpa that is Jason avant for a number #2 option.
Year two of Clark hunts project with Andy Reid and John Dorsey is taking a step backwards. They need defensive help before the season starts. They have to keep up with Denver, who had already signed tj ward to help out their secondary. Looks to be making a run for Jared Allen and Darrelle revis. Not good news for us chiefs fans. John elway seems to be out playing our front office in bringing in big names (who cares if they are getting old) last time I checked the chiefs are in a win now thing, chiefs players aren't getting much younger.
Much intetested in how the day 2 of free agency will play out. We need secondary help!!!
