I will say, I would expect a deal of some kind at some point to get done with Eric Fisher. Beyond all the points of he plays left tackle in the NFL and he’s still developing, Fisher was drafted by this regime. Poe is the likeliest to be playing his last season in KC.
Like I mentioned above, this draft is very deep in defensive lineman, and the numbers that Poe is going to demand and likely get on the open market are just short of mind blowing. But, such is the way of free agency. And honestly, when it comes to free agency, all options are on the table with him.
- If cornerbacks are not available, and the closer we get to the draft the less likely I see them being available, the more likely I see the Chiefs being willing to move back. They obviously are unable to move up, but if they don’t like whats available at 28, they should look to get down into the mid to low 30’s. Easier said then done.
- Losing the third round pick is crushing as it eliminates the Chiefs ability to move up in the draft to target a player, as well as eliminating finding a developmental player to fill in an important role. This organization has done well, for the most part, with third round picks, so to lose one is debilitating as it limits what this team can do and the freedom it has.
- The Chiefs will have tough decisions to make on some well known players coming up. As fans, I want to remind everyone, we cheer for the organization and the team, not the names on the back of the jersey.
