Kansas City Chiefs: Day 1 of Free Agency In the Books
The Kansas City Chiefs are making moves. New head coach Andy Reid and new general manager John Dorsey have made it clear they want to win now.
The Chiefs weren’t the loudest team on the first day of free agency, but they made their presence known. The signing of quarterback Alex Smith is now official. The question now is how will Smith do in Reid’s system? The Chiefs did not stop there at quarterback. They continued by signing undrafted quarterback Chase Daniel. Daniel has yet to start a game in the NFL, but he had a good college career at Missouri tossing 101 touchdowns to 41 interceptions. The deal is reportedly three years long.
The biggest news of the day was probably the signing of tight end Anthony Fasano. This has Andy Reid written all over it. Fasano is no Tony Gonzales, but he has never really been in a great system to flourish and show off his skills. At 28-years-old, he has plenty of time to show the world what he can do. The Chiefs also made an interesting move by signing defensive end Mike DeVito. Devito is not the prototypical defensive end that terrorizes quarterbacks. He is more of a run stuffer.
Devito’s contract is for three years $12.6 million, with $6.2 million guaranteed.
In other AFC West news, the Chiefs primary division rival Oakland Raiders have cut wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey. Heyward-Bey could be a valuable second option to Dwayne Bowe for the right price. Recently released Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams is also still available.
