Two heads of Kansas City land on the list of the 30 best free agents of CBS Sports

The NFL contract resources website Spotrac He lists 16 free agents without restrictions for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019. Three of those Chiefs were among the top 50 Pro Football Focus free agents released a few weeks ago.

On Tuesday, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports released his list of the 30 best players in the NFL that were released to the free agent market. Only two bosses entered the article, and it can not be exactly who do you think

6 Dee Ford

PRISCO: He had 13 sacks in his fifth season in 2018 to consolidate himself as a great rider. The Chiefs will make keeping this 27-year-old player a priority.

If I'm guessing right now, I think the Chiefs bring Ford back. There are more than enough signals from the team's general manager, at his appointments and on social networks, that leads me to believe that there is not a scenario in which the Chiefs move out of Ford, at least this season.

Either through the franchise tag (which I hope) or a long-term contract (which I would consider a risk, given Ford's health record) remains to be seen.

30 Mitch Morse

PRISCO: It is a good solid holder that excels in pass protection. He is 26 years old, so he is still a young player. He has had some concussion problems.

I love Mitch Morse, both the player and the person.

But in your case, look no further than the actions of the bosses. The Austin Reiter backup center started four games in Morse's absence due to a concussion this season, and the Chiefs liked what they saw enough to extend their contract, a two-year contract with a maximum of $ 5.5 million.

There's also is, from PFF.

Regardless of how you feel PFF, Reiter is at least comparable to Morse. It's also cheaper, and I suppose the Chiefs give the initial nod to the center and allow Morse to earn his money elsewhere.

Notably absent

Prisco left corner Steve Nelson and defensive lineman Allen Bailey out of the list.

I doubt that Nelson will return to the Chiefs, since he is addressing the highest bidder, while I think there is a small possibility for Bailey. I think Bailey had a better season than most believe, and the money he sends may be too rich for the Chiefs as they continue to navigate the boundary.
