According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs will be about $7.5 million under the  salary cap at the start of the new league year on March 12. While that’s typically a decent position to be in, the Chiefs are expected to franchise WR Dwayne Bowe before Monday’s deadline, which means that they’ll need to free up some additional cap space pretty soon if they plan on using the designation. Tagging Bowe would run them $11.4 million, which includes a 2o percent increase since they franchised him last year. Teicher mentions DE Tyson Jackson and QB Matt Cassel as being the most likely candidates to be released. Jackson has a ridiculous $17.5 million cap figure for the upcoming season. Releasing him could free up as much as $15 million in cap room and is almost a no-brainer at this point. The same can be said of Cassel, as cutting him loose would free up another $6 million in cap space for the Chiefs. Cassel had little value to the Chiefs even before they had a trade in pla...

Deadline looms Bowe decision

KANSAS CITY, Mo. With all the talk this week about the Chiefs' desperate need to shore up their quarterback position, a process they presumably started with the pending Alex Smith trade, coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey have another pressing issue: A desperate need to improve their weak wide-receiver corps. To start, the Chiefs almost surely will have to reel...

The Sports Hound: 2013 NFL Mock Draft 3.0

The NFL Draft Combine has come and gone, some players have raised their stock and some have hurt theirs.  Andy Reid and the Chiefs have agreed to trade for Alex Smith from the 49ers which takes away the uncertainty of the #1 overall pick.  It will definitely NOT be Geno Smith, it’s the other Smith. [...]

Smith could end Chiefs' QB drought

When assessing the Kansas City Chiefs' acquisition of Alex Smith, let's start with what he is not: He's not an aging and injured Joe Montana. Smith is not a stiff and mediocre Steve Bono. Smith shouldn't be compared to an unproven Elvis Grbac or an unworthy Matt Cassel. Let's don't even analogize Smith to Trent Green, who was 31 years old when he arrived...

Alex Smith Traded to Kansas City Chiefs, Fantasy Football Analysis

The big talk around the National Football League the past few days has been about the trade agreed to by Kansas City and San Francisco that will send Alex Smith to the Chiefs for a second round draft pick in 2013 and a conditional draft choice in 2014. At first, the compensation seems a little staggering but in today’s NFL, you need a quarterback to compete and new Chiefs head...

The Kansas City Chiefs Got Fleeced

If you read the title, it is probably easy to guess how I feel about the Alex Smith trade. For those of you who are uninformed, Smith was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2nd round pick in the 2013 draft, and a mid round pick in the 2014 draft. Does that seem like gross overpayment to anyone else? Before I get on with the negative reactions, I’ll try to appease KC fans: Yes...

Scott Pioli would tag Dwayne Bowe again

With the franchise tag deadline fast approaching (March 4th), the Kansas City Chiefs will have a decision to make on wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. The Chiefs have to decide if they’re going to place the tag on Bowe for a second straight season or let him test the free agent market, since  both sides haven’t worked out a long-term extension. Former Chiefs’ general manager Scott...
