Chiefs free agency: Debating whether Michael Crabtree makes sense for KC

It's no secret that the Kansas City Chiefs will focus on roster changes at wide receiver this offseason. After a record-setting season in which nary a single wideout caught a touchdown pass, it's clear the team needs an overhaul from the top down. The questions are many, from whether or not Dwayne Bowe is worth the money he's making to just how promising Albert Wilson will be. It's impossible to tell at this point what will happen with receivers already on the roster. Outside of that, the same few names are discussed among potential additions, including free agents like Randall Cobb and...

Chiefs free agency rumors: Former Packers WR working out for Kansas City

The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly working out a former Green Bay Packers receiver. No, it's not Randall Cobb. It's Kevin Dorsey, a receiver cut by the Packers just last week. Aaron Wilson of National Football Post reports that Dorsey has a workout scheduled with the Chiefs this week. Dorsey is a 6'1, 207-pound receiver out of Maryland. He was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent time on IR with the Packers his rookie season before they cut him entering the 2014 season. He was re-signed in October and cut last week. He has one career catch to his...

Kansas City Chiefs have one week to clear salary cap space

Moves are coming. With the Kansas City Chiefs placing the franchise tag on Justin Houston, the clock is now ticking to one week from today, March 10. That is the start of free agency, and when the Chiefs need to be under the NFL's salary cap. Currently, the Chiefs are believed to be about $7.5 million under the cap. That does not include Houston's franchise tag, which is $13.2 million. Once you include that franchise tender, which will count against the cap on March 10 whether Houston signs it or not, the Chiefs are around $6 million over the cap. In other words, they have work to...

Broncos 2015 free agency: Eddie Royal a dual-threat option for Denver

Denver needs depth at receiver and returner. Eddie Royal could fill both roles. Could Eddie Royal, 28, return to Denver? If the Broncos want to upgrade the slot position and address their special teams, Royal is worth consideration. Denver never found a reliable option at returner last year. Three different players returned punts over the course of the season. Isaiah Burse averaged averaged 7.3 yards on punt returns before being cut and later signed to the team's practice squad. He'll be back in 2015 (he signed a future contract), but Denver has shown they view him as expendable. Wes...

Another team signing Justin Houston away from Chiefs would be very rare

When the Kansas City Chiefs decided to franchise tag Justin Houston, they used the non-exclusive tag, rather than the exclusive tag. The non-exclusive variety, which is typical among teams, means that other teams can offer Houston a contract and, if the Chiefs don't match, would give Kansas City two first round picks in exchange for Houston. This idea of trading two first round picks for Houston is a fascinating one to talk about. But if history is any indication it's not something the Chiefs are likely to have to face in the coming months. Historically, trading two first round picks for a...

Andre Johnson to be traded or cut, could he reunite with Derek Carr in Oakland?

Yes, I said reunite. And no, I'm not talking about his older brother, David. Once upon a time, a 12-year-old Derek Carr and rookie wide receiver Andre Johnson struck up a strong friendship. They were close enough that Andre Johnson was attending Derek's Jr High football games. The two of them played catch in practice and became very close. It was Derek's brother David's second season in the NFL since becoming the first drafted player for the expansion Texans. After watching his brother get pummeled his rookie season, the Texans went and got him a weapon in the form of Andre Johnson. "It's...

Randall Cobb, Jeremy Maclin take one more step to free agency

It's not known yet if the Kansas City Chiefs will be players in free agency. But if they do clear up some salary cap space and decide to make a run at someone in free agency, there could be a few quality receivers available. Neither Jeremy Maclin nor Randall Cobb were franchise tagged by the Eagles or Packers, respectively, on Monday afternoon. The Chiefs brass has connections to each as you know; Andy Reid with Maclin while with the Philadelphia Eagles and GM John Dorsey's time in Green Bay with Cobb and the Packers. Judging by the reports out of Philadelphia, it seems like there's a...

Devante Parker: The best wide receiver in the NFL Draft

Going over the to 3 traits and explaining how Parker translates to the NFL The best receivers in the NFL all share 3 traits. While a fast 40, short shuttle, and explosive jumps help, none of these 3 traits I'm referring to are physical. They win before they catch the ball, usually early in the route with their feet, or with a head fake. They win at the top of the route by being efficient in and out of their breaks. The best receivers make every route look the same. They don't "tip their hand" as they go to break in a specfic direction. Finally, they make contested catches. If you can't make...

Raiders Free Agency 2015 Wishlist: Linebacker

The need the Raiders have at the linebacker position begins and ends in the middle. Nick Roach appears to be done in Oakland with a concussion he received last preseason which is still showing symptoms and Miles Burris was the worst middle linebacker in the NFL last season. To each side, the Raiders have two of their best young players in Khalil Mack and Sio Moore. So, finding a starting middle linebacker is of utmost importance. It was voted the third most desperate need position by the fans and I fully agree. Here are those middle linebackers on the market who stand to receive the most...

Justin Houston gets the franchise tag but long-term deal is still best for everyone

On Monday, the Kansas City Chiefs applied the franchise tag to NFL sackmaster Justin Houston. This was the correct move, but yet there is no reason to celebrate. General manager John Dorsey has been vocal enough throughout the offseason that the Chiefs would not allow Houston to hit free agency. The hope was that Dorsey and Houston's agent, Joel Segal, could come to an agreement on a long-term deal. Instead, the sides could not get a contract put together, and Kansas City was left to apply the tag. The problem here is two-fold. First, the Chiefs lose a ton of 2015 cap space. If Kansas City...
