5 Remaining Free Agents the Kansas City Chiefs Should Target

The Kansas City Chiefs could still use a boost in a few areas. The NFL Draft may provide a little help, but without a second-round pick, the immediate contributions will be limited. The team may have to do a little more free-agent shopping. There isn't a lot of money to spend, but there are a few bargains out there, and some contract restructuring can still be done. Let's take a look at five remaining free agents who can help the Chiefs.

DeCoud had a down year in 2013, and that should help bring his price tag close to the Chiefs' range. The team could stay in-house at free safety with either Sanders Commings or Husain Abdullah filling in, but adding more experience to one of their biggest soft spots from last season certainly wouldn't hurt.

A player with Rice's injury history isn't ideal, but a player with his capabilities is. If the Chiefs don't create more cap space, then they'll need to be bargain hunters. Rice could be the upside play the team needs.

Austin is another injury-prone option at wide receiver with good talent, but he'll also be 30 when the season begins. He could be an affordable, short-term solution while the Chiefs bring along another receiver through the draft.

The Chiefs absolutely need to bring in another guard. Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz took off as soon as the free-agent market opened, and Jeff Allen is injury prone. Nwaneri is an affordable option who could help the Chiefs in their biggest area of need.

Wharton would be the best option to fill the gap on the offensive line, but there could be a couple of road blocks to signing him. He's contemplating retirement, and as the best remaining guard by far, his price tag may require some contract restructuring from the Chiefs.
