With the window for using the franchise tag closing, the Kansas City Chiefs face more than a couple questions as the floodgates of free agency prepare to open.
Kansas City headlines two position groups with key free agents, along with a bevy of spot performers and role players. And with things on Arrowhead Drive tight-lipped following the arrival of Scott Pioli, leaks about their intent are few and far between.
The Chiefs should have their essential free agents locked down before things get too crazy, though. Pioli's already mitigated their biggest potential losses, and might even have an avenue or two to get something in return for his players who are ready to relocate.
So with Monday's deadline looming, here's a look at how likely Kansas City's free agents are to fly the coop and sign with another team, and what the Chiefs can do to keep hold of their best talent.
Or replace their worst.
