    Default Chiefs Free Agent News and Rumors


    0 Not allowed!
    I didn't see a thread covering free agency news so I thought I would start one. Feel free to add any Chiefs news or rumors regarding free agency here.

    According to ArrowheadPride.com, here is a slist of current Chiefs who are unrestricted free agents:

    NT Ron Edwards
    DE Shaun Smith
    WR Terrance Copper
    C Casey Wiegmann
    S Jon McGraw
    LB Charlie Anderson
    WR Kevin Curtis
    CB Travis Daniels
    LB Mike Vrabel
    FB Tim Castille
    OT Ryan O'Callaghan
    LB Corey Mays
    TE Leonard Pope
    C Rudy Niswanger
    QB Brodie Croyle

    Vrabel has announced his retirement and Wiegman has expressed an interest in playing another year. I think he is a must sign. What other Chiefs do you think we need to sign and who should we let go?

    Here are some other UFAs that the Chiefs are reportedly interested in:

    Right Tackle: Doug Free (Dallas), Jermon Bushrod (new Orleans)

    Last year Jamaal Charles averaged 6.4 yards per carry when running to the left, but only 4.3 ypc when running to the right.

    Nose Tackle: Aubrayo Franklin (San Francisco)

    The Chiefs drafted Jerrell Powe (6th round) this year but he'll be raw and probably only a rotation player to start with. They may resign Ron Edwards, but if they don't Franklin would would be a force up the middle.

    Other free agents that the Chiefs are reportedly interested in:

    Offensive Tackle: Jared Gaither (Baltimore)
    Running Back: Le'Ron McClain (Baltimore)
    Wide Receiver: Steve Breaston (Arizona)

    What are your thoughts?

    Nice find!

    We need to retain Wiegmann and Pope. IMO

    We have a few restricted free agents that need contracts as well. I hope we can make sure we keep those guys on the team, Hali, and Carr come to mind.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    Hali has the tag on him so he is a chief for at least next season for sure. Carr has been tendered a first round... So if another team wants him then they have to give up their first to us... I believe we will get him signed.
    GO CHIEFS!!!

    That is correct. Those two aren't going anywhere, I don't think.

    Making Sense Of The Chiefs Free Agents



    Your complete guide to the Chiefs 2011 free agents - how they got here, what they've done and what their status is going forward

    We’ll get our first dose of free agency when teams announce their first batch of drafted and undrafted rookie signings later today. Preparations for free agency made for a late night Monday at Arrowhead with the Chiefs front office allowed to begin negotiations with rookie players.


    There were discussions, but no signings. Clubs are prohibited from signing rookies until 9:00 AM (CST) today.


    Negotiations with veteran free agents will also begin at 9:00 AM (CST), but clubs will be unable to sign those players until Friday evening. Plenty of free agency rumors will be circulating throughout the week – some true, some not. Just be advised that talks aren’t binding, contracts are.


    There’s some additional small print involved in free agency this year as well.
