Moves to be Made

Although the depth on this roster is drastically improved, there remain a few soft spots. As teams across the the league cut down to their 53-man rosters, there will be some players coming available that could help the Kansas City Chiefs.

Andy Levitre – Levitre is making too much money to be a backup in Tennessee. He may be let go. If he is available, he would be a good scheme-fit for the Chiefs.

That ended with bang as Levitre was traded to the Falcons this afternoon (noting Pioli influence)  

Jon Asamoah – Yes, that same Jon Asamoah.  He has not excelled since leaving the Chiefs for Atlanta in free agency.  While not a true scheme-fit, he would be an upgrade over the current options at right guard.

David Molk – Over the last year, Molk has performed best at guard for the Eagles.  He could be a cheap alternative to Fulton/Durvernay-Tardif.

Carl Bradford –Bradford is a big powerful inside linebacker that is learning the packers 3-4.  He may not learn fast enough to stay in Green Bay and could be cut.  He would add another young inside linebacker with upside and make Josh Mauga dispensable.

Robert Griffin III – He is the NFL’s version of the Bionic Man.  He has faltered in Washington and must be rebuilt.  Andy Reid can do it, but he signing of Bray makes this less than likely
