What We've Learned About the Kansas City Chiefs After the Start of Free Agency
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports|Edited by Brett Gering

NFL free agency is well underway, and none of the Kansas City Chiefs' (re-)signings has lit up comment sections nor sent local hearts aflutter. 

Spare the rant. I get it. 

Same old Chiefs, teasing brilliance and bringing home C-pluses, fanning Arrowhead's flame just enough to sell season tickets, only for fans to wake up on Sundays holding a pair of pipe dreams.

Another year, another Ponzi scheme. 

If you find yourself spamming Twitter with the above rhetoric, inhale, exhale and rub your temples, Cujo. The Chiefs aren't nosediving back into the AFC's abyss.

More times than not, the biggest free-agency "winners"—the teams who sign gangs of household names—are dysfunctional, mismanaged franchises whose front offices are lined with hot seats and reek of desperation. 

That, or a new regime is taking over one of said dumpster fires, in which case free agency prompts a 16-week, traveling talent show.

Ring a bell?

For the Chiefs, the last 48 hours have doled out five clues pertinent to the team's future, and contrary to what the armchair quarterbacks will claim, there's greener grass over the horizon.
