The Kansas City Chiefs and especially general manager John Dorsey are at a huge crossroads this off season. As most of you know, the Chiefs have several players — many of them key contributors — who are due to hit free agency when the NFL league year expires on March 11. Because the Chiefs will not — nor should they — re-sign every free agent, we thought it would be useful for you to see who is a free agent, who has been re-signed and who will eventually sign with another team. On the flip side of the coin, once the free agency period begins on March 11, we will also track who the Chiefs bring in to fill holes on the team via their own signings.
Also, so you have a frame of reference, we’ll show you what each player made during the 2013 season.
As each player is either re-signed by the Chiefs or signed by another team, this post will update and move to the top of the AA page. In addition, as a free agent from another team is signed by the Chiefs, this table will update as well. This should server as your sole source of free agent news for the Chiefs.
