Kansas City Chiefs Free Agents: UFA (Unrestricted Free Agents)
Last, but not least, we have the most common form of free agency, which is UFA. This means the player has no previous ties to the Chiefs and can sign wherever they want to. This is where the Chiefs have the most players and will likely lose a good chunk of these guys. The list is:
- Le’Veon Bell, RB
- Bashaud Breeland, CB
- Taco Charlton, DE – Re-signed with Chiefs
- Eric Fisher, OT
- Antonio Hamilton, CB
- Daniel Kilgore, C
- Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE – Signed with Saints
- Alex Okafor, DE
- Kelechi Osemele, OG
- Mike Pennel, DT
- Austin Reiter, C
- Mike Remmers, OT – Re-signed with Chiefs
- Demarcus Robinson, WR – Re-signed with Chiefs
- Mitchell Schwartz, OT
- Anthony Sherman, FB – Retired
- Daniel Sorensen, S – Re-signed with Chiefs
- Sammy Watkins, WR – Signed with Ravens
- Damien Williams, RB – Signed with Bears
- Damien Wilson, LB
Out of this bunch, the only names the Chiefs should consider bringing back would be Breeland, Kpassagnon, Okafor, Reiter, Remmers, Sorensen, and Wilson, but re-signing all of those players is unlikely. Breeland probably priced himself out of KC after returning on another one-year deal, but the others could be possibilities.
Remmers is someone the Chiefs should really make it a point to bring back because he did well despite being plugged in at different spots along the line. Reiter might not have been the best center in the league, but he held it down decently at the position the past two years and is someone who knows the offense well.
Kpassagnon got off to a slow start, but we started to see his potential in the past few seasons. Having him back as a rotational piece would certainly be nice. Okafor battled injuries, but when he did play, he was effective.
The two receivers are ones the Chiefs can afford to part with, as they didn’t give this offense much down the stretch. Watkins was always hurt and Robinson just wasn’t good.
It’ll be interesting to see what kinds of deals these 16 players end up with in free agency. Will any of them come back to Kansas City?
