Welcome to free agency! The Kansas City Chiefs free agency began at 3 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) this afternoon and they haven’t made any moves since then that we didn’t already know. They haven’t announced anything yet. Chiefs GM Brett Veach will speak go the media at 5:30 p.m. this evening.
We are tracking the status of all the Chiefs free agents below.
The Chiefs are bringing back FB Anthony Sherman and DL Jarvis Jenkins but are losing WR Albert Wilson, C Zach Fulton and CB Terrance Mitchell who all received multi-year deals from other teams in free agency. I’m sure the Chiefs had some level of interest in bringing all of them back but other teams were willing to pay more. So goes life in the NFL. Best of luck to all of them.
Priorities for the Chiefs remain the defense. WR Sammy Watkins will do on offense. They need defensive line help and could use more help at corner and safety. GM Brett Veach should be paying attention to those positions.
