The Chiefs have only made 8 acquisitions this offseason (including the re-signings of Hussain Abdullah and Frank Zombo), a drastic reduction from last year. This should come as no surprise since Dorsey follows the Ted Thompson draft philosophy and head coach Andy Reid is adamant about building a team, not buying one.
