Chiefs Will Have To Pay High Price For Cardinals RFAs

We know Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley likes to keep his eye on some players he's familiar with, namely the players from his former employer, the Arizona Cardinals.

So let's see what they're doing over in Arizona.

The Cardinals today tendered two players at positions of need for the Chiefs.

First up is WR Steve Breaston who was offered a first round tender.

There's no way the Chiefs pay that price but it doesn't mean he's off the market. The Cardinals, if they want to keep him, likely felt he was safe at that numbers.

Second up is NT Gabe Watson who was offered a second round tender.

Watson isn't talked about as often and his second round level tender suggests the Cardinals aren't completely certain he's the future. At 6'4", 329 pounds, Watson certainly has the size to be effective

C Lyle Sendlein was given a second round tender. He's been described as technically sound and has held down the starting job for two seasons after going undrafted. I don't think the Cardinals want him to get away.

The tender levels for these players suggest to me that Breaston is a keeper and they'll listen to offers for Watson.

Either way, I don't think the Chiefs will be players at those prices.
