I think the Chiefs have been quiet winners

Bennie Logan will be a big addition to their already stacked defense

Gavin Escobar seems like another Cowboys TE who gets drafted to replace Jason Witten, can't get on the field enough to show he can replace Jason Witten, and gets cut for being a questionable blocker (sup Martellus Bennet). I think Andy Reid will find a use for him since he runs a lot of 2 TE sets and Escobar and Kelce are basically just really big Wide Receivers. Or, he Escobar could totally suck and that's why Dallas got rid of him. Idk

CJ Spiller is a question mark but if he has anything left in the tank he could be good for this team.

The major problem the Chiefs have had over the past few years is the lack of a home run threat so to speak and I think Tyreek Hill has solidified himself into that role.

The key thing here is the Chiefs aren't throwing big deals at these question marks (sup Mike Glennon). Looks like they're saving cap space for signing their own players instead

This team should be very good this year, and I think the Chiefs and Raiders will be back and forth for the AFC West title this year while the Broncos finish about 7-9 or 8-8

vikings are kind of in the middle

they addressed what they absolutely needed to (oline) but due to the market they had to spend more than they probably should have. especially for the caliber of the new guys (but still markedly better than last year)

lost quite a few guys (minnesota to carolina exodus?!?), but the only one that really hurt was munnerlyn and it makes sense him going back to the panthers. we'll see on kickoffs without patterson, but we won't lose much sleep over his wr days anymore

Trust me on this. Escobar sucks.

And Cj Spiller has made a career of disappointing every real life and fantasy team that has ever acquired him.

I think the Eagles did pretty well for themselves. Adding some big time help at WR for Carson Wentz with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. I also think the Niners very quietly had a nice free agency.

Which is why I don't see either of these two spares cluttering the Chiefs roster on Opening weekend.

Very happy with the Redskins. Got bargain deals on Swearinger, Brown and Pryor. Lost no one I wanted back. And, lost importantly, no exorbitant money.

Obviously the Cousins thing needs to get resolved though.
