NFL free agency: Are the Kansas City Chiefs doing anything?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have been quiet as free agency approaches. What are they doing?

This seems to happen every year. Free agency hasn't officially started yet but fans see other teams around the league making moves, cutting players and signing others. And the fans wonder why the Kansas City Chiefs aren't doing anything.

Did John Dorsey forget free agency? Should we be concerned? Or my favorite from someone on Twitter: "I'm scared".

No reason to be scared. Yet at least. Dorsey, Andy Reid and the Chiefs have a plan. What is that plan? I don't know but you aren't an executive of the year candidate by forgetting the offseason.

Whenever I get worried about the Chiefs being too quiet I just go back to what happened last year. As we counted down the minutes to the start of free agency, it looked like the Chiefs were going to let Dwayne Bowe and Branden Albert walk, or tag just one of them and letting the other hit the market. But with literally minutes to go until free agency, it was reported that the Chiefs signed Bowe to a five-year deal, franchise tagged Albert and signed Dustin Colquitt to a multi-year deal.

That's a good example of the Chiefs front office staying busy without us knowing. (Cue fans, "How hard was it to give Bowe $56 million?") The Chiefs took those negotiations down to the last minute. I suspect the same thing is going on this year.

Dorsey said at the NFL Combine that he has reached out to every Chiefs free agent, including Tyson Jackson and Dexter McCluster. The Chiefs could be losing a few starters in free agency but they also have their own free agency and the NFL Draft to fill those positions. Free agency hasn't started yet. There's time.

All that said ... everyone else is super anxious like me, right?
