Updates On The KC Chiefs Free Agents

It's been about a week and a half in free agency for the Kansas City Chiefs and they've signed a number of players, let a few more go and there's even more of the Chiefs free agents who haven't done anything.

Almost 10 days into free agency, it's time for a recap on what the Chiefs have done. I went all the way back and included the guys that have been signed or re-signed back in January and February, before the real free agency started. I also included the guys who have gone elsewhere and then listed the rest of the Chiefs free agents that haven't had any news.

All Kansas City Chiefs Free Agency News

Players Signed By The Chiefs

LB Jovan Belcher (RFA): One-year, $1.972 million. Staying in KC.

RB Peyton Hillis: One-year, $3 million deal. He could fill a few roles, including fullback.

TE Kevin Boss: Three-year, $9 million deal. He'll be paired with Tony Moeaki.

OT Eric Winston: Four-year, $22 million deal. Instant starter.

QB Brady Quinn: One-year deal. He'll be Matt Cassel's backup.

CB Stanford Routt: Three-year, $18 million deal. Chiefs are really only on the hook for the first two years, totaling $10.5 million.

DL Amon Gordon: Coming back to KC on a two-year deal. I think this is a pretty good signing we're probably overlooking.

Drawing Interest In Free Agency
