It’s somewhat uncommon that a Super Bowl-winning team returns so many of their starters in hopes of pursuing another championship. It’s not surprising that a well-run organization like the Kansas City Chiefs were able to keep such a talented roster intact.
Fresh off their first Super Bowl win in 50 years, this team looks capable of stringing together a few championships in the years to come. This prospect alone makes Kansas City a destination for free agents who want to win the big one.
As the Chiefs head toward the 2020 season, they’ll have a very limited budget to try and improve their roster. Thankfully, they have an aggressive general manager who is fully capable of working some magic.
While it’ll be a little tougher this year, there are a few names that could be of interest to the team. So, let’s take a look at who might be available and willing to sign a cheaper contract to be a Kansas City Chief.That in itself may have been where he errored in his career as the Jets have been a mess for several seasons now. After signing a five-year, $72.5M contract, New York released him after only two seasons. It appears as though it wasn’t a good signing for either party.
The chances of success could be much better in Kansas City, though. Signing with a solid team and organization could really put Johnson in a position to thrive. At 30 years old, he should have something left in the tank before the sun begins to set on his career. Also, if the Chiefs have a more immediate need, it’s at the cornerback position.
