Well if anyone in KC was desperately hoping for Crabtree still, this should be the dagger.

Bradley, Franklin, Engram could all fight for 2-3 WR spots.

Surprised they signed Beisel since in New England he sucked and Pioli was there for it.

Why in the world would Holt want to go from a 2-14 team to another 2-14 team?

Engram would be a nice signing if he wasn't 70 years old.

I would have liked some one younger but I still like the move the Chiefs oldest WR before this pick up was 27 they really missed having a vet at WR last year.

That's why he'll sign with the Raiders. He's more than doubling his win total!!! ;)

Three solid signings for KC. This will give them some depth. Though these guys aren't perfect acquisitions, they give them depth at a a bunch of positions. I really think this will give them the availability to draft what they choose in the draft.

Its posts like this that make this my favorite site to post on people see the whole picture and understand how the NFL works.

Moves like this on most sites no matter the team or player(s) are over looked because they are not house hold names.

Any move the Cheifs make especially with Pioli is always a good move to me. I can only dream of having a front office like the Cheifs for the Redskins someday.
