Coffee with the Chiefs – Crunching the cap numbers


Good morning, Addicts! It is Friday, which means most of us will be looking at the clock, waiting to bolt from work and get to the rest and relaxation of the weekend. There is nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning, knowing you have 48 hours of free time ahead of you (well, there are a few betting things, but we will leave that alone). Let’s get into the internet and see what is being said about the Kansas City Chiefs.

"$145,044,035: The Chiefs’ total cap commitments for 2015 (top 51 cap numbers plus “dead money,” cap penalties for players no longer on the team)"

"We know DAT can be effective as a return man and we expect to see him do that in 2015. We also know he can be effective on packaged plays along with short screens and jet sweeps. The next step in the development is refining his route-running skills."

"Things you can count on: death, taxes and four grinding quarters each week from nose tackle Dontari Poe. The Memphis native led all NFL interior defensive linemen in snaps played for a second straight year, rolling up a career-best six sacks in the process. Poe should benefit from the return of veteran end Mike DeVito, one of two defensive starters to suffer a season-ending Achilles tendon tear in a Week 1."

"Many fans and some analysts would point to not having a WR touchdown in the 2014 season and place the blame solely on Alex Smith’s shoulders. What many may not realize is that while the Chiefs didn’t have a TD to a WR they weren’t totally inept in passing TD’s either. The Jets, Vikings, Redskins, Jaguars and Browns all had less passing TD’s than the Chiefs."
