Chester Taylor Signs With Bears

As the Chiefs continue to watch free agency along with the rest of us, they can scratch another player off of their list, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Chester Taylor reaches agreement with Bears on a four-year, $12.5 million deal that includes $7 million gtd in year one.

A lot of cash up front?  Absolutely, but not surprising with the stability he will bring along with a lockout likely after next season.  If the owners are hoping to wait out players that need to get paid, Taylor will not be one of them.

I don’t know if who’s decision, but it looks like Kansas City is once again going to be happy with B (or C and D) level free agents coming in and competing for jobs instead of bringing in top level talent.

People like to point to this uncapped year as being a huge deal because teams can spend a ton of money, which is completely true.  But often they forget to mention that while there is no cap, there is also no floor.  The ability for a team to sit on their hands and spend next to no money could kill the Chiefs this offseason.
