One year deals give us some depth and buys us time to find suitable replacements.

Webb may be, but Page more than likely got the second round tender.

Yeah...I'm sorry, thought I had made it clear I was upset about Webb.

Nothing wrong with re-signing Page, he'll do. We couldn't get lucky enough for someone to give up a second for him.

Besides Bowe and Bradley, who exactly do we have on the roster at WR? A one year tender offer, is a no brainer to me.

Well, we can hope Franklin improves.

Well, we can hope Franklin improves.I agree, but a one year tender doesn't break the bank and it buys us time to find his replacement.

February 26, 2009 - Bob Gretz |

Thursday night at 11:01 p.m. CST, the 2009 NFL season will officially begin.

That’s when the salary cap kicks in again, now at $127 million limit per team after an NFL adjustment on Tuesday.

That’s also when contracts end and players become unrestricted and restricted free agents.

Right now, it’s busy all around the NFL as teams work their roster and salary cap situations before the deadline ahead of them.

As to the cap, a team’s top 51 contracts count against the $127 million figure between now and the day after the final cutdown before the regular season. Then, the team must have all 53 players fitting under that cap.

When it comes to working room under the cap, only the Tampa Bay Bucs have more room than the Chiefs, according to the NFL Network’s Adam Schefter. Here are the top five teams with cap money and the five teams with the lowest cap totals before the close of business on Thursday afternoon:

# Team Available # Team Available
1. Tampa Bay $61 million......... 28. Washington $8.1 million
2. CHIEFS $57 million.............. 29. Pittsburgh $7.4 million
3. Philadelphia $48 million........ 30. Indianapolis $6.6 million
4. Denver $37 million............... 31. New England $3.2 million
5. Green Bay $34 million........... 32. Carolina $1.9 million

The Chiefs have six players who will be unrestricted free agents (UFA) tonight if the club does not reach agreement on a new deal: DE Jason Babin, LB Rocky Boiman, S Oliver Celestin, G Adrian Jones, S Jon McGraw and LB Pat Thomas. Hard to see Pioli/Haley interested in anybody but McGraw, who quietly had one of the best special teams seasons in the league last year.

The Chiefs have three restricted free agents (RFA): C Rudy Niswanger, S Jarrad Page and WR Jeff Webb. Restricted free agents are players with three years of NFL service. Right now unrestricted free agency does not begin until after player has four years in the league.

To retain rights to a restricted free agent, the Chiefs must make a tender offer to the player. The size of that offer affects any compensation back to the Chiefs should another team sign one of their RFAs and the Chiefs refuse to match the offer. There are four possible tenders, all one-year contracts at:

$2.792 million, that brings compensation of a first and third round picks.
$2.198 million, that brings first-round compensation.
$1.545 million, is a second-round pick in compensation.
$1.01 million, brings compensation equal to the round the player was drafted in. If he wasn’t drafted there is no compensation.

Niswanger, Page and Webb all received tender offers, so at the least the Chiefs have the right to match any offer they might get.

A lot of action around the league on Tursday afternoon. Here are some of the moves:

Bills — released G Derrick Dockery and TE Robert Royal.

Cardinals — released long snapper Nathan Hodel.

Colts — signed veteran starting center Jeff Saturday.

Cowboys — released quarterback Brad Johnson.

Dolphins — signed safety Gibril Wilson (5 years/$8 million guaranteed) and safety Yeremiah Bell (4 years/$10 million guaranteed).

Jets — released G Brandon Moore, RB Noah Herron and DE Sean Conover.

Saints — signed TE Dan Campbell, who was released earlier this month by Detroit.

Steelers — released G Kendall Simmonso and LB Mike Humpal.

So the pick owed to us for another team signing them depends on the amt we offer? Do we know how much we offered each? did they make that public?

If someone else signs him
the Chiefs get no compensation

I never have. I keep seeing good things in him, and evidently so have Haley and Pioli. Under Haley, who knows?

Webb has decent size and speed, if he is cheap he isnt that bad of option way down the depth chart.

Yep.

We can't fire everyone. Sign him to the minimum tender, and cut him in camp if you feel the need.

They're not going to cut anyone that's young if they think they have even a small amount of ability. They have nothing to lose by hanging on to him.
