Those of you hoping the Chiefs may be able to fill their NT needs by snagging the Pittsburgh’s Casey Hampton in free agency my be sorely disappointed. I know I will be…
From NFL.Com’s Jason LaCanfora via Twitter:
JasonLaCanfora: Steelers making retaining DT Casey Hampton and S Ryan Clark an offseason priority. Would be shocked if either hit the open market.
Both Hampton and Clark would have been attractive free agent signings for the Chiefs given they need significant upgrades at both positions. With the whole collective bargaining disaster and the uncapped year, it looks increasingly like the free agency pickings are going to be extremely slim. Pioli will have to work some serious offseason magic if he wants to fill a majority of the Chiefs roster holes
