Chiefs | Derrick Johnson will be free agent (Tue Feb 13, 03:40 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent LB Derrick Johnson's contract will not be extended before the new league year begins in mid-March. Johnson is Kansas City's all-time leading tackler.

Our View: It's going to be weird seeing Johnson wear another jersey. A first-round pick of the Chiefs in 2005, Johnson has been a long-time tackling machine in Kansas City. He's not quite the player he used to be, but Johnson is still capable of making an impact as a part time player. Johnson will have interest on the open market.

Chiefs | Two Chiefs LBs could be cut (Fri Feb 9, 12:22 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson and LB Tamba Hali could be released this offseason, in the opinion of beat writer Adam Teicher.

Our View: A first-round pick of the Chiefs in 2005, it would be odd to see Johnson playing in another uniform. He graded out positively in 2017 but the Chiefs seem intent to move on with Reggie Ragland in Johnson's spot. Hali barely played last year (116 snaps) and is not the same player he used to be. Releasing both would free up over $15 million on the Chiefs cap.
