A decision on the Chiefs’ proposal was “tabled” at the March owners meetings, and this is the next opportunity for discussion on a potential rule change. NFL media reports that “one high-ranking NFL official said Thursday night he thinks it is more likely the proposal will be tabled again.”The owners will also discuss whether the league’s competition committee can change the new pass interference rule without another vote of the full ownership if they think it is necessary meetings are complete. The rule approved in March allows coaches to challenge pass interference throughout the game, except for the final two minutes of each half, when stoppages will come from the booth.The thought here comes from the idea that last year, when referees struggled with how to officiate new helmet rules during the early weeks of the NFL season, there was no mechanism in place to tweak or clarify the rules.The league will also reportedly discuss eliminating certain drills (like the Oklahoma drill) deemed dangerous and potentially award one or more future NFL Draft locations. Our own Matt Stagner goes through the Kansas City Chiefs’ positions of need and provides a free agency outlook for each."Dee Ford and Justin Houston have been the guys for the league’sNo. 1 pass rush, but the Chiefs are going in a new direction under defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. It appears that moving on from both Ford and Houston is a real possibility. With only Tanoh Kpassagnon and Breeland Speaks as the defensive ends, the Chiefs would be in the market for another dynamic pass rusher.There aren’t many options on the open market for EDGE rushers. The few that are available will get significant dollars Mecole Hardman Jersey Cheap , as indicated by Dante Fowler’s $14 million deal, and Olivier Vernon’s trade carried a $15.5 million cap hit. That indicates that Houston and Ford are both worth the contracts they have for 2019, and signing their replacements in free agency may not be practical.Prediction: If both Ford and Houston are gone, they could look at a guy like Vinny Curry or Shane Ray for the defensive end spot, but we’ll stick with Paylor’s idea that they’ll put off significant investments at EDGE until the draft.SAM linebacker — buy lowPhoto by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesThe strong-side outside linebacker in Spagnuolo’s version of the 4-3 under is an important spot but not one that typically comes with a high price tag. The Chiefs have a huge need here, but we’ll assume they don’t panic and find a couple of options in free agency and the draft. The market features a couple of guys that might get paid and quite a few others that most of us aren’t even really that familiar with. We should expect Spagnuolo to have a couple of players in mind that he’s worked with in the past or at least a specific role that he can mold a guy who isn’t in line for a huge contract.Prediction: The Chiefs bargain shop for a SAM in free agency. Anthony Barr or Jamie Collins would be ideal, but the Chiefs might go cheaper here. Shaquil Barrett would be a nice mid-level option. Craig has also been banging the table for Brennan Scarlett, a restricted free agent from Houston. Cornerback— buy highPhoto by Elsa/Getty ImagesSometimes specific needs drive teams to make a move even when the market isn’t in their favor. There isn’t a high supply of cornerbacks in this group of free agents, so guys are likely to get overpaid. The Chiefs may have to buy anyway. Steven Nelson and Orlando Scandrick are both pending free agents. We may have seen the peak for Nelson this season. He was good in coverage all year, but his limitations were still noticeable. Scandrick was a good band-aid early in the year, but his play trailed off. We think the Chiefs need as many as three new corners going into 2019, and one should come from free agency.Prediction: Nelson and Scandrick are allowed to leave. Janoris Jenkins, Pierre Desire, Bashaud Breeland, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Eric Rowe or similar level free agent addition Mecole Hardman Jersey Womens , would give them some stability before the draft.Offensive line — buy lowPhoto by Otto Greule Jr/Getty ImagesThe Chiefs have locks at each tackle and right guard in Eric Fisher, Mitch Schwartz and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. For the other two spots, they have pending free agents Mitch Morse and Jeff Allen and a bunch of young guys. Whether they retain Morse or Allen, or go to a low-level free agent, we think the team adds an experienced lineman. Given what we’ve seen so far, I’m relatively confident that the team has enough bodies at the interior spots, but tackle depth is a big concern.There isn’t much of asupply of top-end starters in the free agency market. The Chiefs should be looking for bargains like they did with Cameron Erving. A former starter who has fallen out of favor could be a nice bargain to build some depth.Prediction: Morse and Allen leave, Marshall Newhouse, Cedric Ogbuehi or another bargain swing tackle is added in free agency.Safety — picker’s marketPhoto by David Eulitt/Getty ImagesThe safety market was at a low in 2018. Nobody got paid, and big names took one-year deals that are now expiring. It doesn’t appear that 2019 will be the same, even though there is a tremendous supply of safeties on the market. Some huge names will likely get paid top dollar, but there may also be some bargains that come after the initial flurry for teams who are patient. I’ll call this a picker’s market because there is value to be had, but it’s going to be about fit and negotiation. What we’ve seen from Brett Veach is that he’s NOT patient; he’ll go get his guy.The Chiefs have some guys to sort out from the existing roster, starting with Eric Berry. They could also let Dan Sorensen and Eric Murray go and replace them easily. Jordan Lucas and Armani Watts look like they can be pieces of the puzzle going forward, but there is certain interest from the team in making a run at one of the big-name safeties. They tried to trade for Both Collins and Thomas last season, and the Chiefs were also reportedly in on Eric Weddle upon his release. They’ll add a safety Mecole Hardman Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , and they might overpay. Prediction: The Chiefs make a serious run at Landon Collins or Earl Thomas if they plan to move on from Berry. If Berry stays, they may go after a mid tier guy like Darian Stewart, Lamarcus Joyner, Tashaun Gipson or Adrian Amos.Wide Receiver — look for valuePhoto by Abbie Parr/Getty ImagesWatkins and Hill are among the NFL elite, and there’s hope for Demarcus Robinson, Marcus Kemp, Gehrig Dieter and even Byron Pringle. But, there’s a need for a reliable veteran to help move the sticks. Chris Conley has been (or should have been) that guy, but he’s a free agent. De’Anthony Thomas is also a free agent and facing a legal issue.The wide receiver market is reportedly going to be hot with some of the top guys getting eight-figure annual salaries. Prediction: John Brown, Chris Hogan or similar veteran would be a nice insurance policy for this team. If they end up too expensive, Kevin White, Jordan Matthews, or Donte Moncrief could be the type of bargain WR that would like to rehab their careers with Mahomes.Running back — buy lowPhoto by Sam Greenwood/Getty ImagesWe’ve discussed the fact that Veach and the Chiefs have been remarkably adept at finding running backs that can “plug-and-play” in Reid’s offense. With Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West entering free agency and reports saying Ware will price himself out of KC, the Chiefs signed running back Carlos Hyde to a one-year deal over the weekend.
