Kansas City Chiefs 2017 NFL Offseason Guide
Legal Tampering: March 7th – 9th
Ah yes, Kansas City Chiefs fans are plenty familiar with the NFL’s Legal Tampering period. Of course, that is for the wrong reasons. Namely, the Chiefs were hammered for tampering outside of the approved dates when they made their pitch for receiver Jeremy Maclin. The NFL came down hard, and completely unfairly, on the Chiefs for getting caught doing what every team does.
The whole notion of “legal tampering” is ridiculous in the first place. It is literally declaring cheating to be acceptable. Then the NFL gets all worked up when teams cheat when the league says it isn’t acceptable. However, for this three day period, NFL analysts like Ian Rappoport, Adam Schefter, and Jason LaCanfora will be all over Twitter with rumors. It’s actually a lot of fun.
It’s unclear just how active the Chiefs will be in Free Agency this year, but we should get a good idea during this three day window. If KC is connected to multiple players, we can expect a busy offseason. If not, then don’t get your hopes up over a lot of big additions. I’m guessing we should expect the latter.
