Has the Kansas City Chiefs offseason been good or bad?

This has been a weird offseason for the Kansas City Chiefs. So weird that we can't figure out whether this has been a GOOD offseason or a BAD offseason. TJ Carpenter of 810 WHB called it a sloppy offseason. The Star's Sam Mellinger (congrats on the birth of the little guy, Sam) called it rotten.

There are some bad parts of this offseason, sure, but I have trouble looking past all the good parts too. I know not everything is black and white but I really do think we should be able to determine whether this is a GOOD or BAD Chiefs offseason.

Good offseason or bad? Please vote.

The good

Keeping lifelong Chiefs Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali as well as Eric Berry.

A good contract given to Jaye Howard, someone we thought was gone.

Mitch Schwartz! The Chiefs finally have a right tackle and at a pretty good price too.

Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West extensions.

The bad

The tampering penalties, while ridiculous and unfair to the Chiefs, are bad. Third round pick. That's a Travis Kelce or a Phillip Gaines. Big deal.

The Justin Houston injury.Bad luck or someone to blame? I lean with bad luck.

Tamba's contract. Specifically the $4 million extra cap hit.

Husain Abdullah unexpectedly retires. Good for him, bad for Chiefs secondary.
