Will the Chiefs do anymore bargain basement shopping?

    The big names for the most part have been signed up and most teams in the NFL are focusing more on the upcoming draft.  The Chiefs are likely not going to add a lot more in free agency, but acquiring talent on an inexpensive, one-year deal like they have been doing with the likes of DT Xavier Williams, RB Damien Williams, QB Matt McGloin and SS Robert Golden, is still a smart thing to do and there are still some players out there that could add depth and competition in camp.

    WR Michael Campanaro

    He’s been a solid special teams player and has experience as a kickoff and punt returner.  He’s more quick than fast, but he’s tough and still has some upside in the right offensive scheme.

    TE Mychal Rivera

    He missed all of 2017 with a wrist injury, but he was a productive player during his first four seasons with the Raiders catching 148 passes during that time.  He’s a solid #2 TE that could complement Travis Kelce better than the current crew.

    OT Luke Joeckel

    The guy picked #2 overall in 2013 after the Chiefs selected OT Eric Fisher first overall, Joeckel’s health, or lack thereof, has completely derailed his career.  He’s worth another look for KC, even if his future is at OG.

    OG Dakota Dozier

    A project when he was drafted in the 4th round in 2014, playing his college ball at Furman, Dozier still has some upside to work with and is only 26.  He could factor in at center as well as the Chiefs will need to find a capable replacement for Zach Fulton, who cashed in with the Houston Texans in free agency.

    OLB Elvis Dumervil

    Sure he’s 34.  Sure he’s no longer a Pro Bowl player.  I get it.  However, he still was able to notch 6.5 sacks in a part time role with the 49ers last year.  The Chiefs need to improve their pass rush desperately and if Dumervil is still good for 5-6 sacks per year, he’s worth adding.

    NT Bennie Logan

    Yeah he was with us last year and has surprisingly garnered little interest on the open market.  The lack of rush defense was not on Logan last year.  He isn’t much of a pass rusher, but he is a solid, no-frills type of NT that this defense needs.

    DL Quinton Dial

    A big, imposing run stuffer, he could help the depth on the line this year.  Rather than counting on a draft pick to make an impact, Dial could step into a rotational run defender role right away.

    CB Dontae Johnson

    An awful 2017 season kills his market value, but he has gotten lots of playing time in his first four seasons, is 6’2” and is a former 49er.  The Chiefs seem to be farming CBs from San Fran.  See Kenneth Acker, Keith Reaser, Will Redmond and Prince Charles Iworah.
