This report from CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora would make it seem like the Kansas City Chiefs aren’t in the mix for free agent Dontari Poe. La Canfora says Poe has a free agent visit planned with the Colts. The Chris Ballard connection is alive.
Dontari Poe in high demand. Visits Colts Sun, JAX, ATL, OAK and MIA wants visits as well. If Indy doesn't come correct he'll be traveling— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 11, 2017
I'm told DT Dontari Poe is planning to travel for a visit w/ the #Colts on Sun. Hearing the owner may send his jet to pick up Poe as well.— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 11, 2017
Ballard was in the Chiefs front office the past four years and took the Colts GM job this year. Not surprised he’s interested in Poe, who remains on the free agent market. It’s been out there that Poe could take a one-year deal this year and try again in free agency in 2018. If this many teams are reportedly interested, you would think he could get a multi-year deal.
I wouldn’t love him going to the Colts because they’re in the AFC and it’s reasonable to think they could meet in a meaningful matchup. I say that because I like Poe. I hope he gets paid well wherever he goes.
