The Chiefs can only wait so long before addressing who will be Derrick Johnson's eventual replacement.
2016 ScheduleAll times ET
The Chiefs only averaged 4.2 yards per rush in 2016, and Jamaal Charles' future is iffy. Christian McCaffrey could be a tempting pick at No. 27.
It's time for Kansas City to upgrade at linebacker, and Brown would be an excellent addition.
Oakland needs to sign Derek Carr to an extension, while the Chiefs have a few options to retain safety Eric Berry. Here are five offseason moves that would improve every AFC West team.
People close to Tony Romo tell ESPN's Ed Werder that the popular veteran quarterback is expecting to be released this offseason.
With the Chiefs set to allow backup QB Nick Foles to walk, the options behind Alex Smith are Tyler Bray, Joel Stave or a new face to be acquired.
Kiper projects the Chiefs to add an under-the-radar receiver from East Carolina with the No. 27 pick in April's NFL draft.
Safety Eric Berry would be Kansas City's most logical choice. But his threat to sit out if tagged again makes defensive tackle Dontari Poe the team's most likely choice.
Instant replay for Eric Berry and tag?
The Chiefs' three-time All-Pro safety could land the team's franchise tag for the second straight year, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. DT Dontari Poe is another K.C. candidate, Caplan says. The period for declaring those players will begin on Wednesday.
The Chiefs have greater continuity than the numbers would suggest. Remember, in spite of the turnover at offensive coordinator, it's Andy Reid that calls the plays.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid says Brad Childress is "a natural fit."
Arguably no NFL team has a tougher decision on who to place their franchise tag on than the Chiefs. Will they put the tag on Eric Berry for a second straight year?
De'Anthony Thomas' impact in his three seasons with the Chiefs has been minimal. Since Thomas no longer has much of a role with the Chiefs, they should either find a team to trade him to or give him his release.
Alex Smith doesn't do anything eye-popping. But he does win games, and that makes the Chiefs very happy.
John Dorsey sounds committed to fulfilling his vision of making the Chiefs one of the NFL's premier franchises. Ownership should give him the chance.
Will RB Jamaal Charles be back in Kansas City in 2017? GM John Dorsey wouldn't say for sure, but it might depend on the contract Charles would accept.
He set NFL rushing records and has three All-Pro nods to his name. But does his relatively small window as a starter work against his case for enshrinement in Canton?

General manager John Dorsey was less than definitive about the future for Jamaal Charles in a Chiefs uniform. "Those are hypotheticals in February," Dorsey said. "We'll see what happens in March and April. Right now I see Jamaal as a Kansas City Chief. That's how I see him "
The Chiefs have moves they want to make in the offseason. They don't currently have enough salary-cap room to maneuver, so something has to give.
Where will Tony Romo play in 2017? Kansas City might seem an unlikely destination, with its challenging salary-cap situation, but don't rule it out.
The Chiefs have the unenviable task of trying to find a way to keep both Eric Berry and Dontari Poe, who have both earned big paydays. But don't be surprised if Kansas City pulls it off.
Though they look set at cornerback -- is any team? -- it's conceivable the Chiefs could look for depth there in LSU's Tre'Davious White.
Kansas City has some tough personnel decisions coming this offseason, but one NFL executive polled thinks next season could end in the Chiefs' first Super Bowl title since 1969.
