3. Jeremy Lane
Here is another Seattle Seahawks contributor who is worth a serious look. Seattle would love to keep Lane, but it has 30 free agents and not a ton of cap space. There is a very good chance that he walks, and if he does, the Chiefs should be on the phone with his agent immediately. Lane is only 25 years old and can play in the slot or the outside. He gives Kansas City great versatility in the secondary, something that Dorsey covets.
In addition, Lane has shown to be a difference-maker. When Lane broke his arm in Super Bowl XLIX, the Seahawks could no longer stop the New England Patriots. Last year, while Lane was still recovering from his broken arm, the Legion of Boom was severely compromised. Once he returned and the Seahawks cut Cary Williams, the defense took off again.
Lane would be a great move for Dorsey because he could handle the slot and allow Phillip Gaines to take the place of Sean Smith, should he leave. If Gaines goes down, Lane could shift to the outside and Ron Parker could drop into the slot. At 6-foot-0 and 190 pounds, Lane gives the Chiefs some nice size in the slot and would be adequate on the perimeter. Dorsey should make him one of his top targets.
Contract offer: 5 years, $25 million ($13M guaranteed)
