Chiefs 2022 Offseason Thread
#61

Among the Chiefs UDFAs is Clemson WR Justyn Ross

https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2022/5/2/...ustyn-ross

Many thought of Ross as a top 50 talent before he ended up needing surgery for a congenital spinal fusion and a stress fracture in his left foot. He would have been a risk as a draft pick, but as a UDFA he's all potential.

Excellent production when healthy, even as a freshman.

Chiefs are placing a May 5th tender on veteran free agent DE Melvin Ingram. What in the Wild Turkey Federation does this mean?


Quote:Chiefs have tendered Melvin Ingram (1 year for $4.4M). If he signs with someone else, the Chiefs may get a compensatory pick.

The Chiefs have employed a rarely used device to improve their chances of keeping unrestricted free agent linebacker Melvin Ingram.

Kansas City put the UFA tender on Ingram today, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

That means the Chiefs are offering Ingram a one-year contract worth $4.4 million, which is 110 percent of his 2021 pay. Ingram can sign that contract any time he wants and remain with the Chiefs for 2022.

Ingram can also continue to shop himself to other teams in free agency, but there’s now a July 22 deadline. If he hasn’t signed with another team by July 22, he has to stay with the Chiefs.

And if Ingram does sign with another team, the Chiefs would be eligible to get a compensatory draft pick for his departure, even though the deadline for compensatory picks passed today.


I've never heard of this shit, but apparently the Ravens are doing the same thing to Justin Houston, so there's a warning shot to solid, veteran players on prove it deals, make damn sure you've got a market for your services next year or the team you play for can get you back for 110% of your previous base salary.

This was pretty much my biggest remaining need, a vet DE for the rotation.

Also in the weird shit department, the Chiefs traded the Texans a 2024 7th for a veteran corner.

Don't know anything, but it doesn't sound like most Texans fans are mad.

EDIT: It's a conditional pick, so there's very little risk to the trade other than the monetary part and that's partially still the Texans' problem.

The 2022 Chiefs schedule has dropped, and it is brutal to start. The first 8 games are against teams with winning records, first time ever in NFL history. 11 of the first 12 are against teams with winning records.

I can't help but think the NFL is trying to bury the Chiefs early here, do whatever it takes to keep them from a 5th straight AFC Championship game. Strange to feel this cynical about the schedule, but I absolutely do.

Counterpoint: the opponents have been set for quite some time, and there just aren't a lot of dogs on this schedule.  There aren't a lot of configurations that were gonna look/feel good (and imagine how shitty you'd feel ending with all the hard games while everyone is banged up).  Also no way of knowing which schedule considerations the team asked for, which teams absolutely can do.

TBH, I don't get worked up about difficulty of schedule pre season. Because while some teams were good last year and still look good on paper, there is always several teams that bottom out.

I'm looking at cardinals, colts, raiders, 49ers and titans as all teams that could end up with losing records this year that are on our schedule before the Jaguars game.

Also keep in mind that there were 18 teams with winning records last year. And that 10 of them were in the afc. So the odds are that any playoff afc team is going to have more winning record games on their schedule too.
