The Chiefs will be headed in all separate directions in the coming days as the offseason is now officially upon us.
There will be plenty of time to dissect what could be or what could have been but that will be left for another time. The players will head home and scatter throughout the country as they rejuvenate for another season that will be here before you know it. The Chiefs have several players that will be taking part in the Pro Bowl before they head completely away from football but the season didn’t end how any of them wanted.
The Chiefs will be heading into the offseason with lots of questions at some key positions. What happens with Dontari Poe and Eric Berry will be a key thing to watch in the coming weeks and months. Both could head into free agency or potentially they could both end up back in KC. Kansas City will also need to take a look at their staff and decide if they have the right people in place to be successful.
One of the hottest topics of the coming weeks for Kansas City will be the future of Alex Smith. It is amazing to see how many fans are either hot or cold on him. There aren’t a ton of people in the middle and with the value of the position it makes sense. Smith is headed into the last two years of his contract and for the first time could cost the Chiefs less to release than to keep.
