*** Chiefs 2018 Offseason Thread ***
#1
The Chiefs have forward progressed their way to another playoff loss graveyard, which is nothing new these days.  That being said, it's the offseason for the Chiefs, which is the purpose of this thread, where news, rumblings, opinions/thoughts is being discussed.

Feel free to share your arm chair GM decision making here as well (please try to be realistic as possible). 

1. Give Sutton his walking papers and thank him for his service to the Chiefs, but it's time to move on to a different direction.  Start finding proven aggressive defensive coordinators, not a passive defensive coordinator.  Preferably one that doesn't have his guys playing 5-7 yards off the LOS about 90% of the time, and displays toughness, because this defense is soft.

2. Release the following players:
- Tamba Hali - $9,395,834 in 2018, dead cap of $1,708,334 if released, saving $7,687,500
- Derrick Johnson - $10,250,000, dead cap of $2,250,000 if released, saving $8,000,000
(I'm not opposed to resigning him, but it will have to be cheaper and a one year deal)
- Dee Ford - $8,718,000, dead cap of $0 if released, saving $8,718,000
- Frank Zombo - $1,276,668, dead cap of $166,668 if released, saving $1,110,000
- Phillip Gaines, his contract expires at the end of this season, so don't bother resigning him

3. Trade Alex Smith. If no takers, then release him in order to move forward progress (the future begins now with Pat Mahomes), and $20,600,000, dead cap of $3,600,000, saving $17,000,000

You just saved $42,515,500 of cap that you can easily absorb some cap increases due to Houston and Berry's contracts, and still be able to replace with younger and faster (hopefully smarter too) players.

4. Draft heavy on defense.  They need a lot of help, mainly the DL needs to be retooled as well as the OLB's and ILB (except for Ragland, Jones, and Houston).
