The Kansas City Chiefs have made some serious moves in free agency over the years, and today I wanted to count down the top 5 free agent pick ups in team history.

Free agency didn’t really take off in the NFL until the early 90’s, when the great Reggie White made the switch from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Green Bay Packers.

The evolution of free agency has grown so rapidly since then that the announcement of player signings last Tuesday was enough to make your head spin. There was a time when players actually took their team visits, got to know the city and people they were about to work for and live in, but not these days.

It’s a race against the clock to sign the biggest, baddest name on the market. So many teams have over-spent on players that haven’t worked out for them. Like Albert Haynesworth for instance, that guy completely burned the Washington Redskins. Or, Washington again, giving Deion Sanders a 7 year $53 million dollar deal when he’s at the age of 33.

The point is, free agency is a big boom-or-but situation and today were going to focus on the Chiefs biggest booms over the past 20 plus seasons.
