Once again, I read a couple articles stating the Chiefs would be cash strapped. But here it is.
The salary cap doesn’t matter. All teams can fudge it how they want. I mean, it certainly looks that way.
According to the Chiefs fans I regularly argue with they need help along the interior almost as bad. Reiter left, Duvernay-Tardif is coming back but who knows what a year off will do to him (and he struggled in 2019), Niang is unproven (and might be tried at tackle anyway), Remmers blows, and Osemele’s coming off torn tendons in BOTH knees only a few months ago. They need a lot of help.
I’ve said it over and over on here, the cap is fluid, good teams always find ways to pay their good players, add in FA, and when it ultimately comes time to move on from a player their heir apparent is already on the roster. Rarely do you see the great teams let their good players leave before a second contract.
