All drafted by KC as well. By Peterson/Herm, no less! That is a good feeling given the FA busts we have had.

I'm still scratching my head about the contract numbers.

The Chiefs could have kept Colquitt under the franchise tag for the next TWO years spending significantly less than 3.75 M$ annually ...

2013 cap: 2.966 M$
2014 (2nd year franchised = 120%) = 3,559 M$

No guarantee after 2014 though ...

I think the whole approach has something to do with "changing the regime/culture". Creating a "WE" feeling. If it works - money well spent. If not they dug themselves a big hole. However; they can't stick with that approach for long or the cap will bite them.

BTW: The Chiefs have now locked up 6 M$ annually on their kickers ...


Franchising Colquitt would have meant losing Albert, though.

Oh, no doubt. Just seems odd that our punter is making about the same amount of money as Jamaal Charles, lol.


Yeah, not to mention Colquitt won't be near as valuable now that we'll have a competent offense.

Hopefully you're right. I'm sure Toub had a part in us pushing so hard for Colquitt.
