Scott Pioli Poaches His First Chiefs Free Agent

The express train out of Kansas City looks like it will be a busy one in free agency.

G Jon Asamoah is following WR/KR Dexter McCluster out of town, accepting a deal with the Atlanta Falcons. Other than weakening the Chiefs offensive line, this one stings a little bit more because of former Kansas City GM Scott Pioli’s new role in the front office of the Falcons.

A third-round pick in 2010 out of Illinois, Asamoah started 41 games in his four seasons in Kansas City. Though he lost his starting job late last season, he showed more than enough to be able to cash in this offseason.

With the man that took his job, Geoff Schwartz, and starting left tackle Branden Albert also leaving, the Chiefs will need to do a major reconstruction of the offensive line that will be protecting Alex Smith and clearing the way for Jamaal Charles.
