Here is the deal. Carl Peterson has been on thin ice for a while with the fans. Clark Hunt stated himself that he wanted to earn the fans respect back for the franchise. So, this is absolutely the WRONG time to be having any kind of contract trouble with your two first round picks. If there was ever a year that the chiefs brass should bite the bullet a bit to make sure the picks are signed and in camp in time, this is it. All this tough guy negotiating is doing right now is telling the chiefs fans that remain, that it is business as usual, and that is not what we need to hear right now. It is supposed to be a time of change and recommitment by the chiefs, and that may mean bucking up a few more bucks to get it done now. If there is a long holdout by either of these guys, it will speak volumes as to the real intentions of Clark Hunt. Especially since he said he wanted to be more hands on.

It is also a time where our cap room is huge. We could afford to sign off on the first thing each agent hands us but we aren't going to.

Today we are rich but if we forck it over this go round because we can the next go round will be even more expensive. This isn't a one year rebuild and caving to any agent with a rook because we can might limit our cap further down the line.

**** the picks. Picks don't matter. The cap is what matters. If we sink millions in gauranteed money into some player that unexpectedly busts we're hosed for years.

Dorsey won't bust. I'd bet money on that. What if he has a SlyMo type injury though? Super talented player with bad luck? It happens. Caving just because you can afford to is not a good idea.

I don't see Carl caving to pressure to cave either. He'll run $#it his way until he's no longer running $#it.

I don't expect any change at all...

It is an excellent time for the Chiefs to create front loaded contracts, which agents and players will find appealing. The Chiefs should do it so they have ample cap space in the future.

ALL FRONTLOADING DOES IS SET YOURSELF UP FOR A HOLDOUT IN A COUPLE OF YEARS

It has to be a well balanced front load. And perhaps not typed in all caps.
