Welcome to day two of the 2017 NFL free agency period. The Kansas City Chiefs didn’t do anything on day one besides declining the option on QB Nick Foles which gave them nearly $7 million in cap space. The Chiefs don’t have a ton of money so we’re not expecting any A-list signings but I did think they could sign a mid-level type. We’ll see as we’re still in the first phase of free agency where the funny money is being handed out.
The Chiefs also tendered all three of their restricted free agents (S Daniel Sorensen, WR Albert Wilson, K Cairo Santos) which means they will likely keep them for now but we’ll see.
There is no Dontari Poe news. He remains a free agent. I’m wondering if we don’t see some traction on that today. There was one report that stated he could potentially do a one-year deal and try again next year.
