Could the Chiefs lack of movement have something to do with uncertainty over the stadium issue? The front office doesn't want to lay out cash or contracts if the team has to do something drastic when the issue fails (if it fails)? I have no sources for my theory, just wild speculation and guesses. Discuss.

I think they are waiting for June cuts.

Somehow I doubt it. This is Carl Peterson dumb assery at its best.

What offseason moves?

Referencing the plethora of cuts and lack of signings.

If their free-agency agenda was affected by the upcoming stadium vote, I would suspect they would be inclined to sign some big names and rally support for the organization.


...but they have done nothing, which will only diminish the little support they do have.

Since this one is getting more reads than mine, I think they're going to do something big RIGHT BEFORE the vote -- like signing Ty Law.

I didn't want to pollute your thread with the football version of the Apollo moon landings sound stage.

maybe that's why Carl is telling all the free agents to wait a couple weeks.

It's not that they are being cheap, they just want the impact of the signings to be felt on vote day.


I don't know which is more despicable.

If you're being serious, there really isn't a June 1 cut date that matters anymore.

Every team can designate 2 players as June 1st guys anytime during the FA period. This eliminates the fact that players are kept in limbo for months. This was worked into the new CBA.

Didn't know that. Thanks for the info.

Rep for you.

June is a few months away...
Then Draft is done and the June cuts will have been made

They are resigning whom they want now, nothing until later..after draft when a bigger pool available.
likely less talent though

I said this before, but will try again.

I don't think we are going to make that big of a splash this offseason. Reason being that both CP and HE realize that starting off season we are gonna have to begin a rebuild process. If we dont spend all of our money on FA's this year, we will have a very healthy cap number in which we would be able to bring in key FA's so we don't have to rely heavily on the draft.

I think that most of what will happen this offseason has already happened. Gone is some of the dead-weight, and in comes a new coaching staff. Hopefully Gibbs can maximise the return on talent in our secondary. Hopefully Krumrie can motivate Sims or Siavii. Hopefully Blackmon can make DJ a probowler, and Gun can be more effective.

I think we'll sign 3-4 journeymen before the season starts, and put most of our efforts into the draft.

Remember Carl made reference to the fact that Herm likes to play rookies, some weeks back. I bet we see some young players thrown into the fire this year.

Folks, the bright side is that there is no more Giunta, no more Dexter, no more cutesy Al Saunders playcalling, no more Giunta (definitely worth repeating). If you like you can add: no more Warfield (to those of you who didn't like him), no more wizkids (that one's for CK_IN :p). None of us knows who they are going to sign, but they'll fill the holes with vets and draft picks. But now we have a defensive minded HC and a staff that Gun likes. It's time for the players we have to step up (Battle, Sims, Parker etc.). It's not as grim as some like to make out.
