Free agency opened this week with plenty of movement around the NFL, especially when it comes to quarterbacks. But one of the quieter teams was the Kansas City Chiefs.
There are a few reasons for that, and beat writer Sam McDowell and columnist Vahe Gregorian break them down on this episode of SportsBeat KC, The Star’s daily sports podcast.

An offensive lineman who contributed to the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl run, guard Stefen Wisniewski, has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers, a source confirmed to The Star.
Wisniewski took to social media Thursday evening and enthusiastically announced in a tweet: “Guess what Steelers fans.. I’m coming Home!!!!! And I’m coming to win!!!!”
Around the NFL
The Atlanta Falcons are adding running back Todd Gurley a day after he was released, the Falcons confirmed in a tweet. Gurley will reportedly sign a one-year deal, according to Jordan Schultz of ESPN. Atlanta and Miami were two of the teams mentioned as having conversations with the Los Angeles Rams regarding a trade before Gurley was released.
There wasn’t as much movement on Day 2 (officially) of free agency as Day 1, but plenty of teams were able to improve their rosters from last season. Here were the winners and losers on Day 2 of the new league year.
Winner: Darius Slay
Not only did Slay get out of Detroit, but he is now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. The Philadelphia Eagles gave Slay a three-year, $50 million extension after trading a third and fifth-round pick for the 29-year old cornerback.
Payton, 56, is the first person in the NFL world known to test positive for the virus.
Payton said he didn’t feel well this past Sunday, took the test Monday, and received the results Thursday afternoon. Payton is resting at home, fatigued, but said he is part of the 20 percent of the cases that have no fever and no cough. But he will self-quarantine in his home through the weekend, and he said he is upbeat and optimistic about a full recovery.
Cowboys reached agreement with former Bears’ S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the deal is for one year and worth $4 million with $2.5 million guaranteed.https://t.co/zqLvohHQVS— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 20, 2020

Let’s further assume that Watkins might be amenable to getting a little less money in 2021 and 2022.
I have worked out three different structures for a two-year contract extension for Watkins. Each of these tables shows what Watkins’ current deal looks like — along with what the new deal would provide from 2020 through 2022.
Wisniewski, 30, became the third player to leave the Chiefs in free agency, joining defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah (Dolphins) and defensive back Kendall Fuller (Redskins).
Want to re-live every game of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2019 Super Bowl run? Well, until May 31, you can. Beginning on Wednesday, the NFL is offering complimentary access to NFL Game Pass.
NFL Game Pass offers an extensive library of football programming, including previous seasons of NFL Films series such as Hard Knocks and A Football Life, and of course, every Chiefs game of the 2019 season, concluding with the team’s Super Bowl LIV victory.
A tweet to make you think
Chris Harris just said on the radio “The chiefs are just focusing on Chris Jones and Mahomes right now, they just didn’t have a spot for me” interesting insight— PH (@prentisshab) March 19, 2020
