NFL free agency: Kansas City Chiefs guards draw interest from New York teams

Ron Antonelli

The Kansas City Chiefs have two key offensive guards hitting free agency in Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah. Both those players have been linked to New York teams in free agency.

The New York Jets and New York Giants are expected to be players for the Kansas City Chiefs Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah, who are both hitting free agency on Tuesday. The three-day negotiating period begins today, at which point agents will be talking with teams to determine the market before signing any deals.

SB Nation's Giants blog, Big Blue View, tells us the Giants are hard up for offensive linemen, with a number of spots potentially changing this offseason. While they do have the No. 12 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, they will almost certainly address the offensive line in free agency. The NY Daily News speculates that Schwartz or Asamoah could be a target.

Also in New York, Jon Asamoah is popular. The Ny Daily News reports that the Jets will indeed pursue Asamoah when free agency begins, adding that the Falcons and Chargers could also have interest. The more teams I see that are interested, the higher the price tag I see.

It sure looks like both of the Chiefs guards are going to hit free agency. We laid out earlier why it's so important that the team re-signs at least one of them, especially before free agency starts on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, Schwartz and Asamoah are two of the best offensive linemen available so it's probably in their best interests to test the market.
