    ^^This^^

    It made more sense from a business standpoint to tag Bowe instead of Carr, for 2 reasons. 1) The cost for a franchise WR is lower than the cost for a franchise CB and 2) With the signing of Routt, there is less damage to the team if we lose Carr.

    I'm not fully convinced that just because we tagged Bowe then Carr is going to walk. With our cap space we have just as much chance as anyone of signing him as a FA. The Chiefs may be just waiting for him to test the market so they can match the best offer. I think it is likely that Car was not going to sign any (reasonable) offer no matter how good it was. His agent probably advised him to wait for FA and see what other teams will be willing to offer before signing a deal.

    I agree that is now much less likely that we re-sign Carr, but it isn't out of the question.

    This is exactly what I predicted would happen, two weeks ago, HERE:

    My hope is that he wants to stay in Kansas City, but I can understand why he would want to see how much money he could make on the open market. He will be among the highest paid players in FA this year and NFL careers are short. He has to strike while the iron is hot.

    [Edited to add] My guess is that some team will be desperate enough to over pay Carr by a significant amount (which is probably what he is hoping for). I want to keep him, but not at any cost. I would be willing to overpay a little bit as a reward for his past services, though.

    The Chiefs have made a very smart move in securing Routt, and I hope they can get Carr on board, too. But don't expect to hear anything soon.

    id only trade bowe to stl and draft rg3 if kc feels rg3 jamall moeaki are strong enough to suppourt a possible growth of baldwin into a elite receiver.... which i doubt. after how baldwin started his career with us i've really been disapointed, he had one really good catch against san diego then i haven't seen much.

    Well, Carr is going to leave, and this will give Baldwin a chance to show that he can replace Bowe.

    I think that is what management is seeing.

    I have to agree with Canada, they did wait till the last minute to tag him. If fact is maybe neither really wants to be here. They may feel they have a better chance at a superbowl run if they can get on with the Pats, Giants, Saints....Saints? Yea I don't see them as being to much of a contender this year

    Cheap? Why, because they fly Southwest?

    That is not really fair.

    When it becomes a trend, such as the low salary number has, since Pioli arrived, then it absolutely makes management much more of a suspect.

    But that is not to say that I have any real problems with player management since Pioli's arrival.

    I am fine with being under the cap, as long as I am confident about the players we do have.

    I don't think we have to spend for every possible upgrade that makes itself available.

    My second thought is that I really want free agency to get here because I want us to have a shot at getting Nicks in free agency!

    Because Bowe is tagged does not mean he will remain a Chief.....
