Coffee with the Chiefs – More signings


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs are a busy bunch these days. After finishing off the 2016 NFL Draft on the last day of April, general manager John Dorsey signed six of his draftees before inking another seven undrafted free agents.

Then, from Saturday to Monday, the Chiefs held their annual rookie camp before getting into the OTA portion of the offseason which includes the entire roster. Kansas City has been churning the bottom of the roster, looking to find a few more gems in the rough, men like Ron Parker, Albert Wilson, Jaye Howard and Spencer Ware.

Here is the news you need to know…

Early look at where Chris Jones could fit on the defensive lineJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"Jones can rotate in with Howard who like many defensive linemen does better when he’s rested. The Chiefs say Jones can play anywhere on the line, including nose tackle. However, if all goes well with Poe’s contract — crosses fingers — I see Jones’ future on the end and not at nose tackle."

Chiefs sign two moreJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"Nowak is actually the Seahawks starting center from last season before being released. That’s very interesting for the Chiefs who could be looking for a backup center with Daniel Munyer and Zach Fulton competing. Seems like a nice value to get a player with seven starts last season at this point in the year."

Cap issues could dictate next move for Chiefs and JetsJoel Corry of CBS Sports

"Ware and West signing identical three-year, $4.2 million deals (worth a maximum of $8.2 million with salary escalators) suggests that the Chiefs have a succession plan in place at running back. Charles is scheduled to make $6 million this year in his comeback with two reconstructed knees where he turns 30 years old late in the season."
