Kansas City Chiefs Could Target Free-Agent Bargains to Fill Remaining Needs

The Chiefs still have a big hole to fill in their linebacking corps, and there are several veterans still available in free agency that could fill that need

The Kansas City Chiefs have been quite busy this offseason. They aggressively pursued and re-signed their own key players, they probably gave up too much in a trade for quarterback Alex Smith, and they appear to have completely overhauled their defensive secondary via free agency. 

So while the Chiefs were aggressive early and often in free agency, it would seem that they may very well be done acquiring front-line players until draft day. 

Don't count on it. 

Perhaps the Chiefs' greatest remaining need is to find a replacement for the late Jovan Belcher at the inside linebacker spot opposite All-Pro Derrick Johnson. Finding a solid veteran that is strong against the run would enable the Chiefs to let Johnson do what he does best, which is freelance and make big plays. 

Here is a list of five viable options that could prove to be solid bargains late in free agency and would allow the Chiefs to find the final piece to their defensive puzzle.
