A look at 2014 Free Agents - Who should we pursue?

Obviously, there are several vulnerable spots on the roster that could and should be improved upon. John Dorsey isn't a huge free agency guy, or hasn't been in the past, and will no doubt look to improve many of our problems through the draft. There are, however, several big name guys that could garner some attention from the Chiefs. Here are a few positions that I think we need to improve upon, and the 2014 FA's for those positions (age of FA shown). Feel free to add to the mix. I've bolded a few players that I think we may show interest in.

3 of our OL are coming up as FA's (Schwartz, Asamoah, and Albert) so we'll need to pick up a few pieces or resign some guys. I'm betting Albert is gone.

Who should we pursue? Who should we avoid?

Discuss.

WR
Eric Decker, 26
Jeremy Maclin, 25
Julian Edelman, 27
Hakeem Nicks, 25
Anquan Boldin, 33
Golden Tate, 25
Kenny Britt, 25
Riley Cooper, 26
Emmanuel Sanders, 26

TE
Jimmy Graham, 27 (Saints would be full retard to let him go)
Dennis Pitta, 28
Brandon Pettigrew, 28
Fred Davis, 27
Garret Graham, 27

OG
Jon Asamoah, 25
Geoff Schwartz, 27
Travelle Wharton, 32
Richie Incognito, 30
Kevin Booth, 30

OT
Branden Albert, 29 (possible franchise tag again?)
Zach Streif, 30
Eugene Monroe, 26
Jared Veldheer, 26
Michael Oher, 27
Austin Howard, 26

DE
Greg Hardy, 25 (not going anywhere)
Jared Allen, 31 (4-3 guy)
Michael Johnson, 26 wishful thinking here.
Lamaar Houston, 26
Justin Tuck, 30
Arthur Jones, 27
Robert Ayers, 28

LB (we need help at Jordan's spot)
Brandon Spikes, 26
Karlos Dansby, 32 (many here wanted him last time around)
Jon Beason, 28
Jonathan Vilma, 31 If Sutton stays, expect Vilma to get a look for a short-term deal.
Daryl Smith, 31

CB
Brent Grimes, 30
DRC, 27
Vontae Davis, 25
Aqib Talib, 27
Charles Tillman, 32
Captain Munnerlyn, 25
Chris Harris, 24
Others could be listed here as well.

SProbably our most glaring need, after Kendrick's debacle of a season
Jairus Byrd, 27 (will likely be tagged again)
TJ Ward, 27
Donte Whitner, 28 (SF may not be able to afford him. We may not either.)
Bernard Pollard, 29
James Ihedigbo, 30
Major Wright, 25
Chris Clemons, 28
Antione Bethea, 29

Those are just a few to get us started. Go.

Okay, this is going to sound really ****ing stupid, but I will say it anyway: Taylor Mays made his college career playing cover 1, centerfield for USC. He could be a nice sleeper as a system fit. Bring him into camp just to see if he can still do that.

Their technique sucks. So do they, but it still sucks. He shouldn't be safe. No one associated with that dumpster fire should be safe.

As long as he is cheap. Didn't he do not a damn thing when he was drafted or am I thinking of someone else?

As for Talib, I don't want him. Didn't want him after watching him at KU. Dude's got a $.10 head for sure. Maybe he's gotten himself lined out, but I don't want that.

Hope they can fix it all under 8m that's all the cap space we will have after Robinson and all get cut.
We should have more than 8.

We have 120 spoken for.

This year, the cap went up 3 million to 123.9, so its logical to expect it to go up to 126-127 in 2014.

We have about 2.6 million to rollover from 2013.

Cutting Robinson gets us 3.3 million.

We should have 12-15 million to play with.

This is a pretty shitty FA class and the Chiefs will be strapped for cap spending. They really need to focus on keeping their own players they want to keep and maybe take a look at like Lamaar Houston to replace Tyson Jackson and a veteran FS for the short-term and on the cheap.

It does not, as he has no cap figure for 2014.

Whitner is a strong safety isn't he?

Byrd would be great.... and throw in a FA corner to be safe.

I'd look at Decker OR Maclin. I'm not a Bowe hater, I just think he's either wrong for this system or just flat overpaid. I'd like to trade him if anybody'd give anything for him and take his salary. Actually, no, if they'd just take his salary I'd take a Z-man sandwich for him and sign Decker AND Maclin. Rookie WR's never produce, so this is a spot to sign vets.

I'd let Asamoah walk, he's been a disappointment. I'd re-sign Schwartz. Draft OL in 3rd.

I'd let Albert walk. Too much money, too many injury concerns and just above average play. I move Fisher to LT where he's more comfortable. Draft or sign an affordable replacement swing tackle.

Talib would be a great pickup. Let Robinson go.

Whitner's good, but isn't he more of a thumper type? That's where we play Berry. We need a an upgrade at FS something awful, but I don't know that he's a fit.

Just my .02. Do-able, I think even. Keep in mind, most FA signings don't have the impact that you hope they will and most improvement comes via draft and young player's natural improvement.

My number one hope for the offseason is Jairus Byrd. He is quickly followed by Eric Decker. I know everyone hates Decker as a big fat whiny bitch face, but the guy is actually pretty damn awesome and I think would absolutely open up the offense.
