The Gonzo Lounge>How do you think we going to fix DE?
Direckshun 01:47 PM 05-03-2021
One thing I learned after the pile-on I suffered in the draft forum recently is that, in lieu of the outstanding job Veach has done rebuilding the OL, we've all kind of downplayed the severity of the situation at DE.

Frank Clark is the only clearly starting DE on the roster.

If he gets hurt, which he will because he always does, our starting DEs will probably be Mike Danna and Taco Charlton, with Tim Ward and Joshua Kaindoh rotating in.

That's just not going to get it done, folks.

I'm going to lay out some options that I can foresee, let me know what you think is most likely.

The easiest way would be Frank Clark not sucking and coming anywhere close to earning that contract. He's still 27, even if he looks 37.

Otherwise, you're looking at next year's draft and/or free agency.

Clearly DE is a position that Chiefs need to address after this season. Had they kept their first rounder this year, I thought there was a better chance at them selecting a DE at 31 than a LT.

What the Chiefs have is an opportunity for our young guys to emerge, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Let's see what we have, and with Daly, I'm confident our rookie will get a chance to show us what he's got.

A free agent DE makes a ton of sense, I'm confident that Bart isn't satisfied with what he has.

and with today being the first day that FA signings don't impact the comp formula I expect to see something soon.

Time for Clark to shit or get off the pot. He's got the most lethal pair of interior pass rushers in the entire NFL playing next to him. If he can't make some more plays on a consistent basis with that tandem, it's time for Veach to June 1st his ass next year.

"Who will play that position when he's gone, though?" Anybody. I don't care. Veach cut both bookend OTs of the past 5 seasons in a single 24 hour period. We seem to be doing just fine at that position.

Yep.

Clark needs to step up or GTFO after this season. His contract allows them to cut bait so he needs to prove his worth.

They'll be fine.

It means nothing because he's ALWAYS hurt. He hasn't played more than 11 games in a season since his rookie year.

He might as well not even be on the roster at this point because he's not dependable enough to even be on the field.

He was a 4th round pick. Don't really care. :-)

I mean, we almost certainly get a vet, Ingram seems the most likely given he already visited.

You might even want to try and get him on a 2 year deal, to massage the cap and knowing you probably need a bridge next year too especially if Clark gets cut.

This is a process. We found some guys who could play some last year. We added a guy this year. We'll sign a vet that gives you something you count on, and you ****ing roll with it.


Damn.

You can't make every single position stocked full and two deep in elite players. It ain't Madden football.
I agree 100%. I trust Veach enough that if he sees that what we have isn't getting it done, he'll pull a rabbit out of his hat. Now that we have the O-line fixed, he'll find us at worst a 1 year rental and draft another next year.

I think Danna will be the starter and I’m perfectly fine with that. He’s stout against the run

I think they would have been aggressive in getting a DE had Fisher not been injured...they had to do what they had to do.
