For this offense to pick up where it left off last season, Andy Reid must source new playmakers in the passing game. Dwayne Bowe is overpaid and hardly an inspiring No. 1 after squeezing out just 57 catches in 2013.

Kansas City's second-leading receiver, Dexter McCluster, is gone. That leaves Donnie Avery, who averaged just 2.5 catches per game, as the No. 2 option ahead of projects Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins.

Alex Smith lit up the Colts for 363 yards in the wild-card loss to Indy, but the Chiefs finished the year as the 24th-ranked air attack and a lowly 27th in yards per attempt (6.5). Staring at a receiver-rich draft class, it's time for Reid to rip off the training wheels and find one -- maybe two -- field-stretching targets who can diversify this offense.

Cooks, Lee, ODB Jr. and a lot of other nice WR's scattered throughout this draft.

I think Reid (DeSean Jackson, Riley Cooper, Jeremy Maclin) and Dorsey (Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings) know how to find WR's in the draft...

They overpaid for a WR who can't produce and drops balls in big time situations. Hoping to hit on a WR in the draft who can contribute out of the gate in an West Coast O is desperation.

This year may be more of a rebuilding year than last year was for kFc.
WR is the best player available in the first round.

And you might want to take a look at DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin rookie years. You are soooooo dumb.

At times, I'm not sure if you're serious or an expert troll. I guess you can be both.

Too bad Sheepstud isn't the Chef's GM. You know he wouldn't hesitate to throw a ton of cash at his bromantic butt buddy.

Pay the man. He has HOF stats that are very FF relevant in the playoffs. He deserves a huge raise.

He plays like he did the 2nd half of the season last year and he's well worth it.

That's still pretty high no matter how you look at it. I cannot see 17 at all. 11-14 IMO.

If KC doesn't pay around $17 million a season, someone else will.

Chiefs fans just have to hope Alex Smith is really true to his word and money doesn't really matter as much as building a great team.

Commitment to Mediocrity!

As long as Alex Smith is your QB, Chiefs will continue to be just good enough to make the playoffs every once in a while. Until they decide to draft QBOTF in the first round, the 20-year playoff losing streak will continue.
Sign him to a long-term!

Some big time player salaries will be gone after next year. Flowers is the most likely, along with possibly Tamba. Smaller salaries like Fasano and Avery will probably be gone too.

Pioli was stupid with these contracts. Dorsey signed Bowe to a big contract, but we can cut him after next year and save a lot of money if we want to. We can't do that with Flowers this year.

I think it is unlikely Bowe is cut until after the 3rd year of the contract. KC will have some money to work with for sure, but will need to pay Houston more money as well.

Bowe cant be cut until 2016 or 2017.

Yep, 2015 has a 10 mil dead money cap hit, 2 mil savings. 2016 has a 6 mil dead money cap hit, 7 mil in savings, 2017 2-3 mil dead money cap hit, 10 mil in savings.

Probably not.

Houston, Berry and Poe will need to be paid soon.

Berry's already getting paid. He might get $2-3 million more on average than his first contract, but it's not going to be a substantial increase.

Smith should be top 5 to 10 paid QB? That would be as stupid as Chicago or Dallas.

It's the going rate. Once Cutler got overpaid every other QB has their benchmark for what they want. Also doesn't help that QB's are now getting enormous contracts like Rodgers, Romo and Flacco.
It raises the price for any decent QB.
