LB Jovan Belcher (RFA): One-year, $1.972 million. He's staying in KC to compete against Brandon Siler for the inside linebacker job. With those two, would you consider inside linebacker a need right now?
Other Free Agents Signed
RB Peyton Hillis: One-year, $3 million deal. Good value. I like the idea of signing guys like Hillis looking to prove themselves and get a longterm contract. No better motivator than money and Hillis wants to get a multi-year deal.
TE Kevin Boss: Three-year, $9 million deal. Will be teamed with Tony Moeaki.
FB Le'Ron McClain: Three-year, $8 million from the Chargers. Nice player but KC didn't use him like a $2+ million per year type of player. His departure is OK.
QB Kyle Orton: Three-year deal with the Cowboys. Backup in Dallas over competing for starting job in KC? I think the real question is whether Orton would ever have a chance to beat out Matt Cassel if he were in KC.
Drawing Interest In Free Agency
RB Jackie Battle: He's going to test free agency and reportedly has three teams interested. Among those interested teams are the Chargers, according to reports out of San Diego. A downgrade from Mike Tolbert.
WR Jerheme Urban: He's drawing interest from the Cowboys, according to a report.
QB Tyler Palko (ERFA): Can't see him coming back to the Chiefs.
S Reshard Langford (ERFA): I can see him coming back to the Chiefs. But if they were going to bring him back why didn't they just tender him an offer?
TE Anthony Becht: Veteran. May not make a playing decision until later in the summer.
DB Travis Daniels: He says on Twitter he wants to run. No deal yet.
S Sabby Piscitelli: Haven't heard a peep.
TE Leonard Pope: Hmm. Kevin Boss's signing may rule him out.
OT Barry Richardson: I'd keep his number in case you needed a backup swing tackle but do not plan on him playing significant minutes.
DE Wallace Gilberry: Oddly, nothing on him. What's up with that? A guy like Gilberry doesn't draw interest in this league?
S Jon McGraw: Not sure.
