Arrowheadlines: Chiefs salary cap questions, 2016 NFL draft redo is good for KC

Agent's Take: How the Jets, Chiefs and Cowboys can navigate cap crunch | CBSSports.com Andy Reid recently reiterating his confidence in Alex Smith hasn’t stopped speculation that he’ll be out of a job because of Tony Romo. Should the Chiefs change plans, $9.7 million of cap room will be gained by walking away from Smith’s $16.9 million cap number and next season’s unguaranteed $13.3 million salary. A short-term Romo deal could be easily structured with a 2017 cap number significantly less than Smith’s cap savings. Chiefs: Could they turn Jamaal Charles into Tony Romo? |...

Chiefs noncommittal on Jamaal Charles

What It Means: "He's working like the dickens to get himself ready for 2017," Dorsey said of Charles. "We'll see what happens in March, but right now I see him as a Chief."
