I'd say at best we are looking at re-signing both of our FA's and maybe adding 1 more. And, imo, it feels like they are going to go after a QB. There are a few top ranked NT's that the Chiefs will be able to go after in the draft.
Use the extra 20 as guaranteed year 1 salaries. They get their money up front and not as big of a cap hit in the future, so you don't have to cut anyone.
