As for the new regime, one must consider this, even though things change from year to year:
The Chiefs had to make changes to their O-Line due to injuries in 2012.
Andy Reid watched his O-Line get decimated with injuries in 2012.
John Dorsey saw the Packers O-Line get decimated with injuries in 2012.
Winston is gone, and I'm beginning to suspect that maybe the rumors were true about something being physically wrong with him since no team has signed him, as of yet.
Albert's long term future with the Chiefs is an uncertainty.
Schwartz signed only a 1-yr contract and Asamoah is in the last year of his rookie contract ( although they could tender him ).
With all that said, the new regime of Dorsey/Reid would do well to be paying strict attention to the Chiefs O-Line regarding the long-term prospects.
10 mil not enough for this POS to show up with his teammates and become part of this team. I hope he ends up with a different team. you don't want to be here, we don't want you!
There might be a bright side to all of this. If we're able to trade Albert and get a second round draft pick out of the deal, we'll be able to get Joeckel AND get another QB as a prospect to develop behind Alex Smith. It'd be getting three birds with one stone if it all works out.
