Right now, the Chiefs can’t sign any players, whether their own, from other teams or off the street. As far as we know, the only player they signed before the restrictions went into effect late Thursday night was second-year LB Cory Greenwood; he inked a one-year deal.
The other 24 players without contracts for the coming season fall into different categories. But what the qualifications of those designations remains unknown. Before last season, a player with two years or less in the league was considered an Exclusive Rights Free Agent. Three years of experience could become a Restricted Free Agent. A player with four or more years would become an Unrestricted Free Agent.
