Updating The Chiefs Free Agency Tracker

Kansas City lost a free agent and gained one over the weekend, which means we’ve got some updates to make to the free agent tracker.

Kendrick Lewis signed with the Houston Texans on Friday and Kansas City signed Chris Owens shortly after. The defensive back swap may end up being a slight upgrade for the Chiefs but nothing too significant. Here’s a little bit from each post.


Getting Lewis back into a role he’s had success in makes sense for both Lewis and the Texans. From 2010-2011 Lewis had back-to-back seasons of +4.8 and +1.9 PFF grades before a shoulder injury in 2012 destroyed his value. In 2012 and 2013 Lewis combined for a -13.7 overall PFF grade, including his -3 performance against the Indianapolis Colts in the playoffs.


The Chiefs now enter the draft with the following cornerbacks on the depth chart: Brandon FlowersSean SmithMarcus CooperRon Parker, and Owens. The move give the Chiefs quality depth heading into the draft and reinforces the idea Kansas City will go with the best player available with every draft selection. However, the Owens signing doesn’t take away from the notion cornerback/defensive back isn’t a need for the team at some point in the draft.

And here’s your updated chart (with Akeem Jordan‘s contract, too):
