My view, Croyle stays, Niswanger stays, Boiman stays, Page stays, and McGraw stays, scrap all the other scrubs.

The only one worth salvaging is Page and that is about it. Get rid of the rest and say good riddance.

I agree. But you gotta keep Page, he's a starter. The others like Croyle, Niswanger, Boiman, and McGraw are backups. Love to see Croyle regulated to 3rd string, Niswanger backup center, Boiman special teams player, and McGraw is a damn good special teams player.

Out of the guys I listed, if you are going to keep any of them it has got to be those 5. Webb, Jones, Babin, Thomas, and Celestin need to be gone. They were simply terrible.

All I know is the fact that this team is about to receive a LONG overdue enema.

Yes, and I have one thing to say about that, "IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME !!!"

Why Babin? He had 1/5 of the Chiefs sack total in a half season here.

Pioli should resign Babin on one condition. He removes his gay looking tattoos on his arms by laser.

Here are the guys that are set to become either Restricted Free Agents or Unrestricted Free Agents.

QB Brodie Croyle RFA
WR Jeff Webb RFA (minimum, backup, training camp fodder)
OC Rudy Niswanger UFA (minimum, backup)
RG Adrian Jones UFA
DE Jason Babin UFA (minimum, backup, training camp fodder)
LB Pat Thomas UFA
LB Rocky Boiman UFA
FS Jarrad Page RFA (offer, probably starter again)
FS Jon McGraw UFA
FS Oliver Celestin UFA

Enjoy. And do what you want with it.

Only would offer the players bolded.. Everyone else I would not retain..

Sidenote: I did not know it until now, but I have ran into Oliver Celestin a few times and never knew he was a Chiefs player..

As much as I would love to purge most of them, the truth is you cannot do it in one offseason.. I gave Babin a chance because of age and I think/hope a new DC can make him a quality backup..

If not he is training camp fodder..

John McGraw is only in the league cause he's friends with Herm, Herm is now gone.

We're so flush with good young talent because of Herm. Just look at the quality of those RFAs.

It will be interesting to see how many of these duds get picked up by other teams.

QB Brodie Croyle RFA - too injury prone to even be a back up.
WR Jeff Webb RFA - I've never been a fan. I'd let him go. If the new staff sees something I don't, I won't get bent out of shape over it.
OC Rudy Niswanger UFA - he's a starter for now and can be solid depth later. No reason not to re-sign him to a reasonable contract.
RG Adrian Jones UFA - we need to do better, even at depth.
DE Jason Babin UFA - depth
LB Pat Thomas UFA - bye.
LB Rocky Boiman UFA - bye.
FS Jarrad Page RFA - stays for a reasonable contract.
FS Jon McGraw UFA - bye.
FS Oliver Celestin UFA - who?

I'd say Babin for nothing but depth, and Page.

The rest can help move all Herm's shit out of his house on their way to their new careers as greasy used car salesmen.

Page I'd try to keep. Niswanger and Jones I'd keep if the price is right only because we obviously have nothing else better to put on the field right now.

Rudy Niswanger is a RFA not a UFA so we will probably keep him.

We need depth and training camp fodder.

For fodder, keep Croyle for now, since we need several arms in training camp and we only have two right now (not counting him). Lowest possible contract.

Cut Webb already. Useless Herm hold on.

Keep Niswanger. Sign him to a cheap long term contract if possible. He is a one-year plus starter who has some upside and will at least be good depth going forward at center and guard.

Keep Page for sure. Again, a starter with plus and upside who played fairly well despite zero pressure on the QB.

Cut McGraw already, he's too old, but I'll continue to argue he wasn't bad on special teams.

Others to keep as camp fodder:

RG Adrian Jones UFA
DE Jason Babin UFA
LB Pat Thomas UFA
LB Rocky Boiman UFA

IMHO, Page is the only one worth keeping around.

...Love to see Croyle regulated to 3rd string...

And...I have to disagree with you on this one roy....i don't want to see Croyle anywhere near this team. Find a 3rd stringer who might be able to stay healthy. We now know what Croyle is, and he needs to be gone.

I thought Derrick Johnson could void the last year or so of his contract and hit free agency.

Page is the only definite keeper. I wouldn't mind if they gave a backup contract to Niswanger. Who know what type of offense we will run. If we switch to a zone blocking scheme, Niswanger might do a little better.

keep Page let the rest go back to selling insurance like they should have been doing in the first place. To anyone who doesn't think this team needs a complete rebuild just look at that list, those are a lot of Herms "young talent". What a joke.

I think we get rid of Babin. Remember, we have Brian Johnston coming back from injury this offseason. He's a high-potential kind of guy.

Enjoy. And do what you want with it.

Croyle - Since he's a RFA....they'll probably low tender him and bring him into training camp to compete. I wouldn't be surprised if he's cut during camp.

Webb - They'll do the same thing as Croyle....but I don't see him making the team next year.

Niswanger - They might bring him back....but if they do...I think it will be at guard.

Jones - Gone

Babin - Will probably come back for depth.

Thomas - Gone

Boiman - Gone

Page - I forsee a 3 to 4 year deal for him. I'd love to see someone brought in to compete with him.

McGraw - Herm is gone......McGraw will follow him out the door.

Celestin - I have no idea who the kid is. Probably gone.
