Top 5 Headlines 2/13: Analyzing the Top Free Agents in 2015

Daily headlines to keep you up-to-date on the latest Chiefs news from local and national media


1. Sizing up the top free agents for 2015

By Kevin Seifert -

"The NFL free-agent market will open next month, ushering in the league's annually illogical frenzy for players deemed expendable by their incumbent teams. At the moment, of course, we can only guess at the details. Who will be available? How much cap space will teams have? Which owners with authorize significant spending?

Those questions are under review in most NFL cities, to be determined over the next 26 days heading toward the March 10 opening bell. What we're left with now is a really deep -- but largely fantastical -- 2015 class. Many of its members will re-sign in the coming weeks. Some will be given the franchise tag as early as Monday. A few will make it to the open market, where teams salivating for a big-play receiver or an established pass-rusher will be waiting."    READ MORE…

2. Chiefs need to draft a red-zone WR, but not necessarily in Round 1

By Sean Keeler - Fox Sports Kansas City

"The short answer, of course, is red-zone threat at wide receiver and front-line pass protector -- just not necessarily in that order.

Obvious needs are, well, obvious, and after a historic, almost absurdly comic, zero receiving touchdowns from a wideout in 2014 -- believed to be a first, and a worst, in modern NFL annals -- the HELP WANTED sign at receiver has been out on Andy Reid's lawn for a few months now."    READ MORE…

3. Position analysis: quarterback

By Adam Teicher -

"2014 recap: The Chiefs re-signed Smith shortly before the start of the regular season, signalling their commitment to him as their starter. He raised his completion percentage (60.6 to 65.3), yards per attempt (6.52 to 7.04) and passer rating (89.1 to 93.4) from 2013 before missing the season's final game because of a lacerated spleen. Only 1.3 percent of Smith's passes were intercepted, the second lowest rate in the league among qualified quarterbacks. But that low rate came at a cost. The Chiefs were tied for last in the league in pass plays of 25 yards or more with 20. As a result, the Chiefs had trouble scoring points down the stretch, getting more than 20 just once in their final six games. The Chiefs lost four of those six games and failed to make the playoffs. Daniel started the season's final game and went 16-of-27 for 157 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in a 19-7 win against the San Diego Chargers."    READ MORE…
