The Kansas City Chiefs are one week into the offseason, and Scott Pioli is being viewed closely by the fans and the media. We have all been sold on the idea that Pioli is one of the best figures in professional football today because of his work with the New England Patriots.
Some of that has carried over, but now every Chiefs fan has been impressed with him since coming to Kansas City and taking over as the Chiefs general manager.
The Chiefs have the potential of having an exciting 2012 season. Matt Cassel, Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki, Eric Berry and other players who were on the injured reserve hope to return and help make an impact next season.
With the Chiefs getting back some players from injury, Pioli must follow through with a strong offseason, preferably similar to the one he had in 2010, which led to Kansas City winning the AFC West.
Pioli knows that by the time the Super Bowl is over, he must conclude the search for a head coach and begin re-signing his players before free agency begins on March 13. Once free agents are available, Pioli must make a splash and not fall behind the eight ball.
Which free agents should the Chiefs pursue this offseason? Let me know what you think!
