    Chiefs are paying for Hitchens’ young age. Our team needs more veterans if anything.

    Dontari Poe on a cuttable deal.

    Jesus Christ, I wanted to keep him, but no way would I have paid him 9 a year. Hell, we are only paying Lee 7 a year. Just wow.

    They’ll take a LB at 19 now. Cause we’re keeping our stud WR.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I'm shocked he got that.

    I have not seen what years three and beyond look like though. It looks like a lot of money, but if you want to secure a young player you think can start, that is pretty much what you are going to end up doing.

    I am just glad we did not restructure someone just to re-sign this guy.

    Free agency and salary cap is a ridiculous game. Draft a few guys who are solid and you can't afford to keep at least one of them. So then you end up overpaying his replacement or get stuck with a JAG. At the same time you're trying to restructure a star's contract and praying you get more hits than misses in the draft.
    At least McClay has done a good job evaluating talent for our roster. Can't say much for the coaching staff in charge of doing anything with it.

    I think finding a way to sign Poe would be a great idea. 1 tech situation would be addressed and that would free us up to go other directions in the draft. At least in the early rounds.

    I'm beginning to sour on the NFL's hard cap system. Maybe we need a soft cap like the NBA.

    Or a soft cap for re-signing your own guys but a hard cap, separately, for a free agent signing pool.

    It's kind of a soft cap now with these rollover dollars, isn't it?
