Chiefs Facing Decisions With 17 Free Agents

The Kansas City Chiefs are facing decisions with seven unrestricted free agents and ten restricted free agents. The biggest question marks are the unrestricted free agents.

Here they are (courtesy to Josh Looney of for doing the legwork):

S Mike Brown, WR Chris Chambers, WR Terrence Copper, TE Sean Ryan, OL Wade Smith, LB Mike Vrabel, WR Bobby Wade

I can see the Chiefs being interested in re-signing just about every player there, save Ryan, who was inactive for many of the contests in the second half of the season.

And for the restricted free agents:

OL Andy Alleman, QB Brodie Croyle, QB Matt Gutierrez, LB Derrick Johnson, LB Corey Mays, OL Ikechuku Ndukwe, OL Rudy Niswanger, OL Ryan O’Callaghan, S Jarrad Page, RB Kolby Smith

The Chiefs can keep these players at a relatively low cost. They can place a tender on each player - basically assign them a draft pick - and the higher the tender (or draft pick), the more money it'll cost.
