Tracking Chiefs free agency rumors, news, live updates and more (Monday)

UPDATE: Here are Tuesday'sChiefs free agency rumors

Let's track the Kansas City Chiefs free agency rumors. You can find a list of ALL the Chiefs free agents right here. The legal tampering period opens on Monday morning which is when teams and agents can talk to each other so expect to hear some rumors starting Monday. Free agency fully opens on Wednesday, March 9 at 3 p.m. (Arrowhead Time).

Here are the updates so far....

Monday updates

Optimism with Tamba Hali? CBS Sports Jason La Canfora reports there is plenty of interest in Tamba around the league La Canfora has "a feeling" that Tamba comes back to KC. Chiefs fans are hoping he's right...

The Chiefs need an OT and one of the better ones in Donald Penn is going to hit free agency. This might be too pricey for them. I imagine the Chiefs are going to do some bargain hunting at OT.

Eagles are talking about trading CB Byron Maxwell AND LB Kiko Alonso to the Dolphins. Maxwell signed a huge contract last year (six years, $63 million). Good job by Doug Pederson if the Eagles can get out of that contract. I wouldn't be shocked if Sean Smith got a similar deal this year.

The Dolphins are reportedly planning on cutting CB Brent Grimes. He's 5'10 and has been a Pro Bowler in the past. The last Dolphins corner signed by the Chiefs worked out pretty well (that would be Sean Smith).

The Chiefs have some interest in former Raiders WR Rod Streater, according to Terez Paylor.

A Bay Area radio host says the Chiefs and 49ers have talked about a De'Anthony Thomas trade. Huh? DAT's season ended oddly so I guess I can see this. Would you rather have a sixth or seventh round pick or DAT? I'd probably lean to the latter.

Robert Griffin III has been released. Media folks are saying the Chiefs make the most sense, and I would agree if a) the money is cheap and b) RGIII is willing to sit behind Alex Smith for a year or two. Other than that I'm not sure it's worth the Chiefs time.

The Jets may let QB Ryan Fitzpatrick hit the free agent market. New York could be a team that looks at QB Chase Daniel if that's the case.
