On this episode of the Roughing the Kicker Chiefs podcast, Joshua Brisco breaks down the Chiefs’ addition of QB Nick Foles.
We also go through the contract extension for LT Eric Fisher, a bad Eric Berry hot take, the future of Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray, highlights from training camp and a lot of listener questions about Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill, Bob Sutton and much more.
Last week, I promised that whatever the Chiefs did or didn’t do with Nick Foles would say a lot about the rest of the roster of quarterbacks. Well, the team got it done with Foles and now the fate of one of the Chiefs’ young quarterbacks seems to be completely sealed as Foles finds his place with the team.
Eric Fisher is now tied for the fifth-highest-paid tackle in the NFL. But I think even Fisher would admit that he’s not a top-five tackle at this point in his career. So the Chiefs are paying him early and gambling with millions of dollars that Fisher will continue to grow. But is the gamble worth it?
Eric Berry is not getting a long-term contract and will have to play this season out under the franchise tag. Seems simple enough. But one NFL Insider took issue with how the Chiefs dealt with Berry, and I think he’s extremely off-base.
All of that and much more, including a barrage of listener questions all on this episode of Roughing the Kicker.
