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.

I'm not big on Hawkins or Alexander. They've been in the league for 3+ years and we know what they are. The production potential really isn't any better than Avery.

Ravens are cap strapped. I really want the Chiefs to make a hard play for Arthur Jones. That would help the pass rush.

You're talking about a team who traded Boldin for a 6th because of cap. They won't be able to keep Jones and Pitta.

Take CB off the damn list. Our CBs are just ****ing fine.

We need a 3rd pass rusher behind Hali and Houston. Hali is already showing signs of decline. We need someone that can rotate in and give those guys a breather without losing the ability to get after the QB. FS is an obvious need. But we also need DEs that can actually rush the passer.

We need a CB. Our CBs are slower than Christmas and it was pretty obvious all season.

Flowers is getting older and I'm sold on Cooper. Robinson is terrible at this point. Our CBs are over rated.

Flowers is just fine in the NB role. Not sold on Cooper? The dude made leaps and bounds for being a converted WR who was a 7th round pick. He needs an offseason to get reps and he'll be just fine. We need help with our pass rush and a FS that isn't a ****ing retard.

I like Cooper but we should try and trade Flowers. Or, think about moving him to FS. He might work out there. He's best in zone coverage and is a great tackler. In a perfect world he would make a great FS.

He is really slowing down and he gets hurt so much you can't count on him to be there for you. His injuries seem to always effect his speed and ability to cover WRs. If we move him to FS he might make it through a season?
