Sign WR Kendall Wright (I think Andy will want to keep adding explosive playmakers to his offense)
Terminate option year:
Tamba Hali (Tamba is physically done and calls it a career; project the Chiefs to gain around 10 million in cap space from his retirement with returned projected signing bonus, roster bonuses and base salary recouped)
Eric Berry (Not worth being the highest paid S in the NFL, by a long shot)
Jamaal Charles (I can't see them keeping him around when he carries a hit of 7 million in 2017 and would leave 0 dead money)
Jah Reid (sucks)
1. Jamal Adams, S LSU
A younger Eric Berry.
2. Cameron Sutton, CB Tennessee
I like Gaines, but he's showing that he can't hold up as a starter and that's a problem. The Chiefs D is very reliant on having 2 good corners, so they'll need to address this quickly.
White is a good press corner and fits the range of what the Chiefs look for in a DB.
3. Richie Brown, ILB Miss State
Good instincts, effective when going after the passer, can be a grinder and a strong tackler. With DJ wearing out, it's time to start working harder to find his successor.
3. Chad Kelly, QB Ole Miss
Strong arm, mobile, capable of throwing on the run, decent size, willing to take a shot down the field. Questions about his maturity will drag him down (wow, an early 20 something that isn't mature. shocking.), along with the fact that he'll get a little over excited in big games and get too risky.
I think the problems are things Andy can iron out, and he's a good fit for the Chiefs offense and will have time to adjust to the pros with Alex still at the helm.
Alex will be 33 by opening day next year, so they can't keep pushing off investing actual currency into a successor. Missing out on Paxton Lynch was brutal, but now they have the opportunity to undo that.
(I am projecting KC with a compensatory 3rd rounder from Sean Smith)
4. Hunter Dimick, DE/OLB Utah
A solid technician with a non-stop motor. Could possibly replace Tamba Hali in that elephant role.
I'll add more rounds when we have a better idea what comp picks we're looking at. The field gets muddy after Sean Smith.
