The Marty Lounge>Veach's '21 Offseason Plan to Keep Us Thriving: Let's speculate
Dante84 10:03 AM 02-08-2021
In order to prevent us wasting precious years of Patrick Mahomes' career, Veach needs to work some magic this offseason. What's your advice for him?

OT Orlando Brown is available for trade

And don’t get me wrong. I appreciate what Henne and Moore have done for this team, but can we stop with the expensive, old backup QB?

Find a couple veteran ring chasers for DE and WR.

3) Extend Eric Fisher for one year. I trimmed his 2021 base to $2m, gave him a $4m signing bonus to, saved $8M on 21)
4) Cut Mitchel Schwartz (simulates a retirement on his part, saves $6M against 21 cap)

That puts the Chiefs at $166M in cap liabilities. If the cap gets chopped to $175M they still can sign rookies without doing anything painful. If it ends up at $185M they still have enough room to make a few moves in FA. If it stays flat at $195M they're in awesome shape.
Can't remember where I read this past week, but it sounds like it will be between $180-181M. Veach said they have models for $175-$185M and we'll be in good shape, so it sounds like our guys are confident.

Yeah, I've seen that, but there are also several guys available.

I could see a Mitch Morse reunion being cheaper than $10M/year.

Or, just commit to taking a C in the draft. There are some good ones in there, including my draft crush Quinn Meinerz.

There's been a bunch of speculation. I just don't believe they're going to hit the 21 cap as hard as some are predicting.

Makes a lot more sense to keep it flat in 21 and borrow against 22 and 23 than to rip 14-15 teams all at the same time.

Dropping it $15M in 21 is going to wreak havoc on the FA market... not so much for the top guys, but for all the guys in between it will be a disaster.

No to Morse. We donít need more injury prone guys on this team.

I don't see it.

They let Morse go because they didn't want to pay him. I can't see him coming back for cheap, not to mention the injuries.

Yeah, and then the NFLPA will get involved, which the NFL really doesn't want to deal with I'm sure.

Isn't he still 31? Will turn 32 in like the middle of next season? Not sure...

I just canít see them wanting it to be that way. Theyíll figure something out to atleast keep it flat

AJ Green will be available and should come very cheaply. He's got to be better then Watkins and he'll be motivated to get a ring and another big deal....

I wish this shit would stop. Green is done.

These owners can shut the fuck up. Keep the cap the same.

It's like printing money in their basements isn't enough. For fuck's sake.

He was over playing in the shit hole known as Cincinnati. He might be done but we aren't getting Allen Robinson at some massive discount-despite what a few posters think.

FTR ESPN's Bill Barnwell and the local Bengal websites see it happening:
