After watching big names like Julius Peppers, Karlos Dansby, and Chester Taylor sign free-agent contracts over the weekend, many Chiefs fans had to be wondering if general manager Scott Pioli was off on vacation and oblivious to the fact that free agency had begun.
On Monday, Pioli showed Chiefs fans that his priorities are in order.
Fans who followed the Chiefs closely last season should be ecstatic about Pioli re-signing WR Chris Chambers to a three-year deal worth up to $15 million.
After being released by the San Diego Chargers last season, Chambers signed with the team and led the Chiefs in receiving yards (608) and yards per catch (16.9) in only nine games. Most importantly for the Chiefs, Chambers has some of the most reliable hands in the NFL, and when paired with former first-round pick Dwayne Bowe last year, the offense was markedly better.
Now the question for Chiefs fans is whether Pioli can build on the momentum of signing Chambers and bring in some more talent to help the 2010 Chiefs.
Here is a list of players that Pioli should certainly entertain signing in the next few days and weeks leading up to the NFL Draft.
