The Chiefs Kingdom got some earth-shattering news today as the team announced it had cut former No. 1 overall pick, LT Eric Fisher, and future Hall of Fame RT, Mitchell Schwartz.
This is a big, big move for the Chiefs. It was just days ago that GM Brett Veach told the media that he expected Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz back for training camp in August. While both players may be healed up and ready to play football when that time comes, it doesn’t look like they will be stapping up with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The news broke just before Matt Verderame and myself recorded the Arrowhead Addict podcast. We altered our plan and took some time to break down what the departure of these two long-time Chiefs means for the team moving forward and how the moves will shape the upcoming offseason. Don’t worry, we managed to squeeze in some candy talk at the end of the episode.
We also touch on the new NFL salary cap and how that news and the release of Schwartz and Fisher, will impact KC’s free agency and draft strategies.
