The NFL never sleeps, not anymore and not at any point in the year.
In March, for instance, it's free agent season. Marquee players find new teams and big money, while teams move as quick as they can to lock up the best talent. And 2012 marked one of the biggest frenzies of all with Peyton Manning and Mario Williams headlining.
The NFL draft is the big thing in April, not free agency. While teams interview and work out college prospects, those players left awaiting new deals sit forgotten like the square-wheeled train in the Land of Misfit Toys.
But to write off those players would be a mistake, even for a team like the Kansas City Chiefs. Having already filled their biggest roster holes last month, Kansas City has no serious needs at any position even before adding their upcoming draft picks.
But the Chiefs can continue to build depth with the veteran players still out on the market, even if it's just for one-year contracts popular among those who couldn't land major long-term deals last month. And at this point in the year, the best bargains can be found among these players with starting experience who may have a question mark about their ability going forward.
