Sterling Holmes and Matt Conner break down the earliest moves in free agency and what Chiefs Kingdom can take away from it all.

Yeah, that whole "legal tampering" thing is a joke. We know it.

The NFL opened up the start of free agency this week with the beginning of what they term a legal tampering period where franchises have the permission of the powers-that-be to begin negotiations with any other team's departing players who are set for free agency on Wednesday—the official opening of a new league year.

What's interesting is just how quickly 32 teams were able to negotiate multi-year commitments worth tens of millions of dollars with so many players in such a short span of time. Amazing how that works!

In all seriousness there was quite the free agency frenzy once the bell rung on Monday and early verbal agreements could make their way to the public. Then again, other teams did seem to hold back—the Chiefs included—while others signed myriad players in the hopes of turning over a losing roster as quickly as possible.

The good news for the Chiefs is that they already took care of business along the defensive front with the signing of Chris Jones. They also re-signed Drue Tranquill before free agency got underway as well, so it's actually prudent to wait for the dust to settle on the early spending.
