What does WR market mean for Chiefs’ attempts to re-sign JuJu Smith-Schuster? | ChiefsWire

Well, the deal that Meyers signed isn’t too dissimilar to what Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed with Kansas City a year ago outside of the guaranteed salary. It’s certainly far and away from the outlandish contracts that players at the position saw in free agency last season. Does a slow-moving wide receiver market without any big contracts help the Chiefs or hurt them?

Lucas Niang currently part of Chiefs’ plans at right tackle | ChiefsWire

So, what does that mean for the team’s plans at right tackle? Well, the 2023 NFL draft will certainly play a role. It’s possible that the Chiefs manage to draft a left tackle of the future and keep Taylor at right tackle. It’s also possible they end up drafting a rookie to play at right tackle, but that rookie won’t be without competition.

The #Patriots have remained engaged with several free agent wide receivers, including Odell Beckham and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Money will matter here. This isn’t the old days.

One positive on that front is the money has been less than expected for this position group so far

Isn’t he FROM there? Maybe he’s just going home? The Saints only take our defensive guys

Saints to sign Chiefs DT Khalen Saunders | Chiefs Wire

https://chiefswire.usatoday.com/2023/03/15/kansas-city-chiefs-2023-nfl-free-agency-khalen-saunders-new-orleans-saints-signed/

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, the New Orleans Saints are set to sign Chiefs free agent DT Khalen Saunders on a three-year deal worth $14.5 million. A St. Louis, Missouri native, Saunders was a third-round pick in 2019 out of Western Illinois University after he turned heads at the Senior Bowl. His early career in Kansas City was disrupted by an elbow injury, but he developed nicely as time went on.

Glad for him, but it sucks that CJ95’s two best friends aren’t going to be Chiefs next year.

I’m surprised Burton is moving on. Maybe Payton will give him more playing time.
