Love it! A lot of people are pointing out that means we can use Jones more on the edge, but Jarran has also played edge a lot. This gives us solid positional flexibility, but if we can improve the other edge spot or at least add a speed rusher as a change of pace in the rotation we'll greatly improve the pass rush.

That flexibility will allow a combination of lineups based on need.

I'm pretty sure this is the last year we see Frank Clark in a Chiefs uniform.  His deal becomes cheaper to cut than pay next season, and his production, while clutch in the playoffs and the Super Bowl, really doesn't justify his numbers.

Agreed. That makes getting an edge defender all the more important this season to be ready for it, not just a stop gap one year player like Houston or Clowney.

Unless he balls out and lives up to the contract. In which case we should be able to keep him with the expected cap increase and hed still have another year on his contract after that so I dont think hed be pressing for a new deal yet.

Chiefs are signing former Rams C/G Austin Blythe to a 1 year deal.

Don't know contract details yet, but he's a 3 year starter the Rams hoped to bring back, rated the 9th best C by PFF (for what that's worth), but before last season he started RG. Another guy that can play multiple positions on the line and starting caliber.

You can legitimately question how improved the starting lineup is, but the depth we're building on the offensive line, especially the interior, is phenomenal.

C Austin Blythe's contract is a 1 year, $990,000 (vet minimum) contract with up to another $760,000 in likely to be earned incentives that count against the 2021 cap.

$1.75M is a smaller than expected cap hit and likely the result of a depressed market due to the smaller team caps.

Might be a reason why they singed Reed to only a one year deal. See if the both can perform together as they did a few years ago in Seattle. If so keep Clark and try to resign Reed again.

Whoa. Bernard Pollard is not a name I have heard in a long time. Also the photo in at the top of this link triggered some fairly serious PTSD. The Bad Times.
