I'm not sure many Chiefs fans can say they are feeling good about how free agency has started thus far. Not only have the Chiefs lost 5 starters of their own (counting Asomoah), but the broncos seem to be cleaning up again and somehow have the cap space to sign Ware, Talib, and Ward by the end of day one. Not sure how that's even possible but anyways...now just waiting to hear that Jared Allen has signed with the Donks for next to nothing(Don't tell me it didn't cross your mind).
I keep waiting to hear news of a big signing by the Chiefs or really just any excitement to ease the pain of the rough first 48 hours of free agency, but since that hasn't happened YET I thought I would give you my free agency wish list:
Darren Sproles - I know half the league is interested in Sproles but I really think he warrants the attention he is getting and would be a great addition to our offense, assuming he could be had for no more than a 5th round pick? Honestly, I have no idea what his value is right now but if we could give up a 5th or lower I'm all about having Charles and Sproles on the field at the same time. Talk about a matchup nightmare...
Steve Smith - It sounds like the writing is on the wall and he is going to be released very soon. He fits into what Andy Reid is looking for in a receiver and I know the Panthers still owe him like 3-4 million so we might be able to sign him to a reasonable contract. I think he would consider KC as a viable option. KC will need to act fast because I don't think he will be a free agent for long. I know I am dreaming big but could you imagine both Sproles and Smith wearing red and gold next year.
Brandon Browner - A big, physical corner from a great defense. Sounds like somebody Reid should at least consider looking at. He may have some character concerns but I'm still surprised I haven't heard his name floating around much. He is suspended for the 1st four games but talk about a high risk vs. reward player that could really help out the secondary.
Another bonus/argument to signing both Sproles and Smith is that neither would count against the Chiefs potential compensatory draft picks for next year! Any takers? Who would you add/remove from this list?
