“It’s everything else he brings to the table within the locker room and out in the community,” Paton said. “It’s hard to find a really good football player, but it’s really hard to find someone that’s out in the community like Justin, and [someone] who’s a leader in the locker room. That’s why it was a priority since the day I arrived to get Justin locked up.”

AFC West 2021 free agency grades: Chiefs and Chargers both bolster O-line as Raiders tear theirs down | cbssports

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/afc-west-2021-free-agency-grades-chiefs-and-chargers-both-bolster-o-line-as-raiders-tear-theirs-down/

The initial wave of free agency has come and gone and we’re starting to get a better sense of how all the teams across the league are going to look in 2021. In the AFC West, the Chiefs still remain the top dog and were on the doorstep of a second straight Super Bowl title last season, but this division could start to get more competitive in a hurry. The Chargers‘ future is looking bright after the extremely successful rookie campaign by quarterback Justin Herbert. Meanwhile, both the Raiders and Broncos have flashed potential and will be looking to take another step forward next year.

I love how the web address for the SI Deshaun Watson story says it is a “first hand” account.

Judging from the recent FA inactivity, Lucas Niang had better be the real deal.

If Niang isn’t ready, I think Remmers could hold down RT until he is. I’m more concerned about LT and am still expecting we’ll sign someone before the draft, probably Okung or Villanueva.

I’m not worried about RT. Remmers is fine there. This inactivity leads me to believe they think Niang is a LT.

I honestly think they still resign both Schwartz and Fish in a couple months if they prove healthy.

I have hope for Schwartz but Fish might be a next year guy, unfortunately. I hope I’m wrong.

It’s hard to say, but I’ve not heard anyone talk about Liang anywhere but RT. Plus the hard push for Williams makes me think they didn’t have him penciled in for LT. I think the inactivity now is because, outside of Williams, no one else is looked at as a longer term fit so we’re talking one or two year contracts. So the Chiefs are playing the waiting game to get the deal they want.
