It's just money. It's not like baseball or the NBA where it cripples your franchise if you pay a guy that much. The Chiefs would clearly like to use that for other purposes, but if push came to shove, it's not that much of a sacrifice.
The 1.1 pick, meanwhile, shouldn't be pissed away. It has FAR more value than a handful of salary cap millions on an overbloated contract.
