NFL Free Agency Round-Up: Nate Allen, Devin Hester, Sidney Rice, Jacoby Ford

Things are starting to slow down around the NFL when it comes to free agency but there are still players out there who could help the Chiefs in 2014. Here’s a quick glance of some of the developments today


Kansas City lost a potential safety target with Nate Allen re-signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. Philly is signing a lot of safeties.

Here’s the write-up by Jeff McLane:

The Eagles and safety Nate Allen agreed on a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.

Allen became an unrestricted free agent last Tuesday, but after almost of week of testing the market, opted to return to Philly. He becomes the third safety the Eagles have signed in the last week after they inked Malcolm Jenkins to a three-year contract and Chris Maragos to a two-year deal.


A report from Miami’s Sun-Sentinel says Devin Hester would love to join the Dolphins.

“I would love to play for the Dolphins,” Hester said Saturday from his USA Football FUNdamentals clinic at his alma mater, Rivera Beach Suncoast High School.

Hester is from Florida and attended the University of Miami. A tandem of Hester paired with Mike Wallace would make one speedy combination.

Kansas City is thought to have shown interest in Hester.


The failed courting of Emmanuel Sanders did reveal to us that the Chiefs are still looking for wide receiver help in free agency. One potential target, Sidney Rice, may soon be gone.

How high the interest is in Rice is unknown. It should be noted the Jets are expected to sign Jacoby Ford at some point this week.

One would think after signing Eric Decker and Ford that Rice would be off the table. However, this is the Jets we are talking about so anything is possible.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Chris Clemons is pretty much out there alone now. Most of the other safeties are off the table.

    • Ben Nielsen

      Yup. Haven’t heard much chatter about him either which is odd.

      • Stacy D. Smith

        He won’t sit there forever. I think I might make a call just to see what’s on his mind. That’s a good football player.

  • Mike Ross

    The Chiefs are not interested in signing anyone we’ve ever heard of. Dorsey would much rather search for a diamond in the rough and look like the smartest guy in the room.

  • paul pace

    The Chiefs have pretty much slowed down to a crawl in FA. But, who knows, they are probably still looking for a WR and a safety. I don’t know much about Sidney Rice and if he would be a good fit for KC. But, then, the Chiefs haven’t got a lot of cash to spend either. The Chiefs may be done and just wait for the draft.

  • og.

    What about James Jones. I would much rather have him than any of the receivers that have been linked to the Chiefs!

    • David Walker

      James Jones just signed a 3 yr deal with the Raiders.

  • micah stephenson

    The Jets is do n the dang thing. 1st they drafted Geno. Now they gone surround him with good wrs. Why didn’t the Chiefs do this?
