Kansas City Chiefs' Top Remaining Offseason Priorities

Roughly a month away from the 2014 NFL draft (May 8-10), and with the peak of free agency in the rearview mirror, some Kansas City Chiefs fans will tell you the sky is falling—it's not. Having said that, the team's list of offseason priorities isn't getting any shorter. 

Last season, John Dorsey was more or less the chubby kid from The Sandlot, strutting beside the free-agent pool before yelling, "Cannonball!" This season, the Chiefs haven't made any comparable splashes, which has mobs of ticket holders pounding the panic button. 

The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers, who will both play the Chiefs next season, also haven't headlined any buzz-worthy signings. Why? Because, like Kansas City, they don't (necessarily) have to mortgage their future to be in win-now mode.

More times than not, general managers who find themselves camping out at free-agency's floodgates have been inept at drafting (or succeeding a predecessor who has—see "Fire Pioli!" banner). Don't fool yourself: Pulling up to the NFL's unemployment line with a handful of blank checks is a sign of desperation, not ambition.

For all intents and purposes, the Chiefs' offseason is just beginning.
