The one thing I was worried about when it comes to Ryan Lilja is the price tag. He was the best remaining guard available in free agency which could cause a situation where his value is over-inflated since the market is dry.
This is good thing for the Chiefs. Some of the other veterans the Chiefs have brought in have been on short-term deals with little money involved. In other words, the players they've signed in the past aren't in it for the long-haul.
Lilja appears to be a player who is in it for the long-haul.
According to 610 Sports' Chris Hamblin, there were two other teams in the bidding for Lilja -- Seattle and Houston -- and both were offering more money than the Chiefs as of yesterday.
So did Lilja take a hometown discount or did the Chiefs buck up a few, uh, bucks?
