    Carr is most likely gone That's a loss but I don't think it's a loss that we can't recover from. Bowe would have been that. Just hope that in the next year we can get Bowe locked up

    Is he restricted or unrestricted? If hes unrestricted perhaps its part of a bigger RG3 move? Two first rounders is what it would take. STL wants a WR for Bradford. Maybe switch picks and Bowe? Sign Carr long term?? Im just bored so im throwing ideas out there. Nothing to do til the draft now!!

    disappointed that we didnt sign either bow or carr so we could tag the other. fault the management cuz they knew this was there last yesr and its their fault for not trying to extend either of the players before this season.

    How do you know its management? Maybe its the player/agent. theres two sides to a deal. Who knows how long they have been trying to come up with a deal. I think the fact that they waited until the last minute to tag Bowe shows that they were doing everything they could do reach a deal before using the tag.

    ^^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.

    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
