The Gonzo Lounge>Suggested Post-Draft Free Agents & Trade Ideas?
Couch-Potato 07:13 AM 05-02-2021
What say you CP? What are the best available FA acquisitions and trade scenarios for the Chiefs post-draft?


Shwartz or Fisher, to compete with Niang for RT?

Breeland, Earl Thomas or Sherman at DB?

Melvin Ingram as dedicated Pass Rusher?

Larry Fitzgerald or Goldan Tate as WR #2?

Pull off the big trade for Julio!?

Especially given the Thuney signing.

For better or worse, Bart doesnít seem to be overly concerned about comp picks.

Yep he's gone and that is valuable cap space.

Don't believe players that are cut and then signed by another team count. I believe they have to complete their contract and enter FA to count towards the comp pick formula.

Ok, heres one...

Bears want to move Anthony Miller WR. Thought of highly coming out in the draft. Bears also need help on the O line and seem to like Alegretti (local kid).

Chiefs offer Alegretti and late round pick to Bears for Miller?

Could work for both teams.

Id be really surprised if some kind of addition isn't made at wide receiver. Wether that be a blockbuster trade for Julio or sign a Dede Westbrook or Golden Tate. A Tyreek injury and that wide receiver room is pretty darn bare.

Casey Heyward is a FA and 31. Nice option for us if Breeland doesnít work out

We had a 4th and 5th round comp pick this year. He isn’t “overly” concerned about it, nor should he be. You don’t pass up opportunities to get better for comp picks. You get them when you can and you work around the rules to try if possible, but other than that, they shouldn’t stop you from adding talent.

Iím also hoping we could bring him in.

That seems like a major projection to assume that better offensive line play will make Hardman/Robinson/Pringle into more consistent WRís.

Some of you just can't let Fisher and Schwartz go. That ship has sailed.

Until 2, possibly 3 of the following prove themselves, Allegretti isn't going anywhere - LDT, Long, Niang, Smith, Blythe, Humphrey. Who knows what kind of shape LDT is in, how long will Long last, Niang is unproven, Blythe is a 1 year tryout, and Smith and Humphrey haven't even tasted KC BBQ.

OverTheCap.com reporting $9m in avail Cap Space? Interesting.

What's the estimate on how much Cap Space a Mathieu extension would win us? Who is currently on the team that might be cut post-draft? What's the most Cap Space we can obtain?

Orlando Brown is playing on his current contract this season, and can be franchised at around $16m the next year? Correct? Also, If Frank Clark doesn't produce this year, is he a potential cut after next season along with Hitchens?

...Plenty of room to work with actually. Presents some interesting options for a team with very few holes.

Honey Badger has a $14.5M salary this year.

Bert could easily clear $10M with an extension.

That’s a WR, DE, and CB when combined with the existing space.

^Based on the above scratch math, it seems to me we could indeed squeeze Julio Jones $15m contract in if we restructured Mathieu. People forget we were trying to pay Trent Williams $20m annually and were in on JuJu!

Next year Julio's contract goes down to $11m and say Hitchens comes off our books, we franchise tag Orlando, and we're still good.

A Frank Clark cut is probably not available until 2023 due to his dead money, but we wouldn't need to cut him to make it work and maybe he restructures as well by then.
