$20 M-Plus To Spend, But On Whom?

Using this Kansas City Star column as a reference, I delved further into our salary cap situation and crunched some numbers. The results were interesting, to say the least. The Chiefs will have approximately $26.6 million to spend after the following probable moves:

  1. Cut Chris Bober, Eddie Kennison, Greg Wesley, Jason Dunn, Kendrell Bell and Ty Law.
  2. Franchise Jared Allen.
  3. Priest Holmes officially retires.

Now, I’m guessing we’re going to resign both Dustin Colquitt and Jimmy Wilkerson, so there goes at least $2 million. We also might not cut all the players I listed above. Even considering those possibilities, we are going to have at least $20 million to spend. That’s also not including the possibility that Pat Surtain might have to restructure his mammoth deal to stick around, and could also become a cap casualty should he refuse to do so.

All that being said, who should we push for the Chiefs to bring in? In the recent past, the coalition of the local media and Chiefs nation have helped push the Chiefs into bringing in guys like Donnie Edwards, Law and Surtain. Who’s at the top of our list this year?

What grade would you give the Javier Arenas selection?
