Coming off the worst season in franchise history, the Kansas City Chiefs enter the offseason needing to find answers to assure that a repeat doesn't occur in 2013. Free agency is the first opportunity in that process.
Free agency is only one step, as the draft also gives teams another chance to find impact contributors and to fill out their rosters in areas that lack depth. Identifying those areas early, however, is why this period during the offseason is so vital.
For a team that finished 2012 with a 2-14 record, the Chiefs seem to be in a favorable position moving forward in most spots. The reason for the lack of success is because of a severe lack of depth and underperformance at the most important positions.
Use this grading scale to see where Kansas City stands in advance of free agency.
A—No Addition Needed
C—Minor/Bargain Addition Needed
D—Depth, Minor/Bargain Addition Needed
F—Impact Starter, Depth Needed, Minor/Bargain Addition Needed
