  • Mike Bell gets low tender from Saints

    "Scout's Adam Caplan reports that Bell got the lowest "right of first refusal" tender as a restricted free agent. Since Bell was undrafted, the team gets nothing back if he signs elsewhere."

    Yes please.

      Yes, please what? I'm sure that the Chiefs can do a whole lot better than picking up washed-up scrub Mike Bell. His burst is long gone.

        He is 26 years old. What are you talking about? We need depth at RB we have none...

        • Age doesn't necessarily define one as being a washed-up scrub, performance does. Bell was miserable this year for the Saints. Check out Rotoworlds perspective Maybe he'll have an awesome off-season, his knees will rejuvenate, and he'll flash some of how he played at U of A and his first year with the Donks, but I doubt it.

          • If 650 yards and 5 TD's as a back up is bad then sign me up all he has to do is take the load off of JC.

            • The opening bell for unrestricted free agency will ring this Thursday night at 11:01 PM here in Kansas City. We’ve taken a look at some of the available names out there, and more have been added since each position was presented. What we haven’t talked much about are the Chiefs restricted free agents.

              The Chiefs must make tender decisions on eight restricted free agents by Thursday’s deadline.

              The Chiefs restricted free agents are as follows:

              OL Andy Alleman
              QB Brodie Croyle
              LB Derrick Johnson
              LB Corey Mays
              OL Ikechuku Ndukwe
              C Rudy Niswanger
              T Ryan O’Callaghan
              S Jarrad Page

              *RB Kolby Smith and QB Matt Gutierrez were part of the Chiefs restricted free agent list, but agreed to new contracts last week

              If the Chiefs are to retain the rights to any of the above players, Kansas City must tender an offer to each RFA based on draft pick compensation and the RFA’s accrued NFL tenure. Should the Chiefs decide not to extend a tender offer, the said player will become an unrestricted free agent.

                I would offer all of these players, with DJ and Page getting higher compensation tenders. We could live without most of those guys, but I feel more comfortable with the depth they provide. Also, O'Callaghan is probably our starting right tackle next year unless the Chiefs take a tackle at 5, so they should probably bring him back.

                  Yeah I agree with you 100% here. Slap a 2nd/3rd on DJ and a 3rd/4th on Page but get it done and quick.

                    Tender all of them. Cheap depth and/or extra draft picks... No brainer. 4 or 5 of them are starters.

                    • I just saw this on ArrowheadPride:
                      According to Adam Caplan of Scout.com, the Kansas City Chiefs will not be offering Alleman a tender essentially sealing his fate as an ex-Chief.

                        Not a big deal.

                        • This could mean that G/C is a target for the draft, which would be excellent news.

                            Actually, I'd have been more surprised if he had been tendered.

                            Hopefully, Vidae's right and this does mean they will target a G/C in the draft.

                            • I think G/C would have been a target even if they had gave him a tender.
