What is the Chiefs Biggest Looming Roster Decision?

Besides Alex Smith, Fescoe in the Morning Debates

The Chiefs should have a very busy offseason ahead, but Fescoe in the Morning looks at the biggest free agent question that looms heading into 2018.

Fescoe - The Chiefs are very fortunate they don't have many big name players on the cusp of free agency. Albert Wilson though creates an interesting situation for KC. Wilson proved to be a very legit wide receiver in 2017 and looks like to me he could be the #2 wide out along side Tyreek Hill in this offense in 2018.  However, will the Chiefs be willing to ante up for Wilson is the big question.  I think the answer should be YES and never look back.  We also saw what the Patrick Mahomes to Wilson connection can look like over the course of a season as the two looked really good together in week 17 in Denver.  I think the Chiefs should make the easy decision and bring back Albert Wilson and reward him for a job well done.

That was just one of the many highlight reel catches for #12

Kling - I know pass rushers are hard to find, but I'm just not settled that Dee Ford is an answer.  Nor am I happy about paying him $8.718 million next year after logging just six games and two sacks.  A bad back scares me too, and as former agent Joel Corry told 610 Sports Radio's Dayshift, there are some injury / contract issues that could make this tricky.  Still I think he's benefitting from the Chiefs not having many options at pass rush, rather than he's earned his big salary bump next year.

Welch - Darrelle Revis, but more specifically, the #2 CB. I feel like I could have written this exact same thing for the last 6 or 7 years. Finding a legit compliment to the #1 CB has been the biggest defensive issue the Chiefs have had in the Andy Reid Era. Darrelle Revis isn't the answer because his contract is not favorable in 2018. My solution: Former Missouri Tiger E.J. Gaines. Free agent this year, and incredibly underrated... as people in Buffalo know

Whether it's E.J. Gaines or somebody else. The Chiefs need a real #2 CB because the revolving door is clearly not working.
