The Kansas City Chiefs will plunge into the 2013 NFL offseason with a lengthy list of priorities. But if the AFC West's bottom-dwellers shrink the laundry list to five main concerns, Andy Reid's Chiefs will atone for last season's drought and reinvigorate the City of Fountains. 

From free agents to freeing cap room, the new regime arrived in Kansas City with a full plate of responsibilities. (No, the predictable Andy Reid joke isn't going to follow.)

Although Chairman Clark Hunt uprooted the front office, the seeds of success have been planted throughout the roster; Kansas City isn't a team devoid of talent. The Indianapolis Colts boasted one Pro Bowler from a two-win 2012 squad and cracked the playoffs at 11-5 one season later. Despite an equally abysmal 2-14 record, the Chiefs sent six Pro Bowlers to Hawaii last season—only five of the remaining 31 NFL teams produced more.

As a coach, taking over a talented team with the No. 1 overall draft pick is rarer than Survivorman meat. But with some offseason fine-tuning, Reid can cover up last season's blemishes and wield the Chiefs to postseason contention. Who said the window of opportunity couldn't be made from stained glass?
