The salary cap article is more about the Chiefs not landing Julio Jones than it is the Chiefs getting bit by the cap.

The headline had me read the story, I did watch the unrelated Brett Veach interview with Colin Cowherd and it was pretty good. But the article insinuates the Chiefs are in trouble because of the amount of players the have under contract for 2022 (38) vs their cap space projections. This doesn’t factor in the Chiefs making cap moves and re-signing and restructuring players between now and then.
