Holy crap! Almost $4MM/year for a punter? I mean, I love Colquitt and all...but $4MM/year? That seems steep to me.

He will prove himself yet again to be one of the most valuable assets to our team. Id rather have him then some no namer shanking punts in important games.

Nice job by Dorsey getting the top three bananas locked up.

Probably paid a little much for Colquitt, but he definitely deserved a good contract. I love me some DQ2! Glad to have him back.

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

Yeah, I thought 3 mil a year for Colquitt would be the high end. But I thought (before the combine) Alex Smith was worth a 4th rounder.

I'll say this, this has the kind of start we want to see though. Keep home grown talented players, let others walk that want too much, and use the draft. Obviously this draft threw a wrench into the stockpile picks motto. But I have faith to no end that Dorsey is going to make our picks count. And it wouldn't surprise me at all if we're not picking first overall by the time the draft rolls around.

Especially if Geno tears his pro day up which i expect him to. Buffalo, Arizona maybe Oakland could want to jump in front of Jax.

If you want to go down the trade route - how about Miami? They let Jake Long walk. They have two 2nd rounders. They are sitting pretty at #12. And at #12 the top OT will probably be gone.

Given the current situation I might be happy with their 1st and the high 2nd rounder - and may be something in 2014.

KC I totally forgot about Miami as an option, but didn't they just draft Martin?

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 ...

That's what I'm thinking as well. The main theme to this offseaon so far seems to be centered around making sure the players feel like they're important as people instead of just players and contracts. Pioli stripped our entire franchise of any kind of identity we ever had. It seems as though Reid & Dorsey are quickly rebuilding that mentality and so far, they're doing a damn good job of it IMO. I'm still not a fan at all of the compensation for Alex Smith, but that trade seems to be the pivotal piece to fixing this mentality/identity puzzle. PEOPLE are valued at Arrowhead now, not just players. That's the perception that kept Eric Winston in town to sign his contract. Now that perception seems to be turning into a reality.

Color me impressed. And happy. Gimme Ziggy or Geno at #1 & I'll skip down my street in a sun dress.

With the 4 major moves we made we made KC a very attractive option in future markets. They look like a team that wants to win, wants to make the players feel like we care about them, care about the team, the culture, the locker room. Great job so far Andy and John.

Agreed. Dorsey and Reid know that morale is important especially after last couple years. Happy players and happy lockeroom means results. Thy start playing harder.
