Super Bowl LV certainly didn’t start the way Kansas City Chiefs fans would have hoped. The Chiefs were flagged for several crucial penalties, failed to get in the endzone over their first four offensive drives, and kept the Buccaneers in good field position thanks to a series of subpar punts from Cheap Tommy Townsend Jersey.

Townsend, a 24-year-old rookie, isn’t exactly used to punting in pressure scenarios. Entering the Super Bowl, Townsend punted just once in these playoffs, and was one of the least-active punters in the league thanks to the Chiefs’ high-powered offense.

Townsend boomed a 51-yard punt on the Chiefs’ first drive, but managed just 27 yards on his second punt, and had a dangerous moment during his third attempt. Townsend dropped the snap, but was able to grab the ball and kick a 56-yarder. Unfortunately for him, the punt was negated by a penalty, and his follow-up attempt was shanked and went just 29 yards.

Unsurprisingly, fans were not impressed.

WTH!!!!! This rookie punter @Townsend looks too damn scared to be out there. What in the hell are you doing, shanking a punt that badly???

On one side.. the world is realizing the importance of a punter on the grandest stage.

And on the other side like… The Brand is currently taking a beating on the internet.

Kindof conflicted.. TT gonna turn it around… Right?

Had legit never set eyes on the Chiefs punter until he kept kicking four-yard punts tonight

The Chiefs then decide to Make Your Own Basketball Jersey

Custom Jerseyshttps://www.customjerseyspro.com/ From 24$.

For example, Tampa Bay only has 45 players under contract currently. That means their current salary cap space of $18.5 million would go down to $14.54 million, shown by $18.5 million – ($660k * 6). Tampa’s cap space can go lower, as the Bucs could add contracts to their roster that are not the base minimum, but this is a much better snapshot of the Buccaneers’ salary cap as it currently stands than the $18.5 million figure.

In the same vein as the above example, but in reverse, when a team has 51 or more contracts, new contracts added to the roster need to take into account the contract that gets knocked out of the top 51.

Let’s say the Chiefs’ 51st contract is a $660k minimum base salary contract. The Chiefs then decide to re-sign Cheap Byron Pringle Jersey to a one-year/$1 million contract. For salary cap purposes, the Chiefs have not subtracted $1 million from their salary cap space. They actually subtracted $1 million – $660k = $340k. So, in this example, only $340k would be taken away from the Chiefs’ cap space.

Teams operate under this Top 51 contracts rule from the beginning of the league year until the first day of the regular season, and it warps offseason accounting to a huge degree. It is how teams can seemingly fit smaller level re-signings under the salary cap and is something every NFL fan needs to keep in mind.

Now, it is time to put our knowledge of NFL contracts to work.

The Cuts

We’ll be using a salary cap of $185.6 million for this mock offseason, which includes carry-over cap space from 2020. This means the Chiefs start the offseason $23.48 million over the cap.

There will probably be a few cuts to some previously important players.

If the salary cap did not decrease this year, the Chiefs could have gone through this offseason without any additional cuts. However, due to the salary cap falling, it seems unreasonable and financially irresponsible to make all the salary cap space needed just from restructures. Some players will have to go.

One player that will be noticeably absent from the mock offseason is defensive end Cheap Frank Clark Jersey. That is by design. Clark is incredibly difficult to move this offseason.

Cutting Frank Clark would charge $39 million in dead cap space in 2021, costing $13 million in cap space.

Cutting Frank Clark with a June 1 designation would charge $25.4 million against the Chiefs cap and gain $500k in cap space.

Trading Frank Clark would charge $20.4 million in dead cap and gain $5.4 million in salary cap space.

None of these figures are ideal. It is hard to imagine that Clark is not a Chief in 2021. The smartest thing to do with Clark is do nothing, hope he plays better in 2021, and if he doesn’t, then decide his fate next year when the numbers are more favorable for a release. In 2021 though? There is not much to do unless Clark takes a bonafide pay cut.

It is possible to have a functional offseason, even with Clark’s contract on the books as-is, with only a few cuts.

In this mock offseason, the Chiefs only cut two players.

Left tackle Cheap Eric Fisher Jersey is such an obvious cut on the surface that it feels almost destined to happen. Fisher will be coming off a late-season Achilles injury on the wrong side of 30 and is in the last year of his contract. By cutting Fisher, the Chiefs would save $11.3 million after replacing his contract in accordance to the Top 51 rule.

It would not be shocking if the Chiefs and Fisher get some sort of contract resolution sorted out, spreading out Fisher’s cap hit over a year or two so he can stay on the roster, but it feels like a long shot and mistake. A sad end for a player who has been a Chief for a long time, but the NFL is a business. Chiefs cap room: -$12.17 million

In the spirit of “the NFL is a business”, cutting running back Cheap Damien Williams Jersey is also a move that is depressing on the emotional side of the game. Business is business though, and the Chiefs would add $1.5 million in savings, which makes Williams a good mid-level cut to help retain some players at more important positions. Cutting a player like Williams is going to be a common roster move this offseason for other teams as front offices try to claw back some salary cap room from veteran contracts. This is why many in the NFL media are predicting this offseason could be rough for veterans around the league. Chiefs cap room: -$10.55 million

Fisher and Williams are the only two cuts needed to get to a respectable salary cap number at the end of the salary cap creation phase. No, cutting right tackle Cheap Mitchell Schwartz Jersey was not done in this mock offseason. It felt like a more interesting exercise to try and go through an offseason with Schwartz on the roster. His return in 2021 feels truly uncertain, so waiting it out and seeing how the roster ends up with him on the team feels like a believable, likely exercise.

Even with the cuts above, the Chiefs are still over the cap. In order to find the rest of the money needed, more salary cap space will have to be added through restructures.

The Restructures

Restructured contracts are not the end of the world.

Despite the negative aura surrounding restructures, due in large part to the salary cap apocalypses happening in Philadelphia and New Orleans, restructures are an incredibly powerful tool.

There are three players who are likely targets for the Chiefs to restructure.

I wrote about quarterback Cheap Patrick Mahomes Jersey contract last offseason and its unorthodox construction. That unorthodox construction can already help the Chiefs create cap space.

Mahomes’ contract is a bank the Chiefs can borrow from a couple of times over the life of the deal if they wish. Keeping the borrowing to only when it is necessary is the key, but this offseason is a time it is needed.

For this mock offseason, $15 million of Mahomes’ roster bonus in 2021 will be restructured into a signing bonus. The $15 million is spread out over the maximum of five years on his deal and saves $12 million in 2021. Chiefs cap room: $1.344 million

Tight end Cheap Travis Kelce Jersey contract is very strange in hindsight. Kelce will make $13.25 million this year but will only make $7.5 million next year. Kelce also has no guaranteed money in his deal after this season, despite having three years left on the deal. To smooth this contract out and reward an all-time Chief with guaranteed money, Kelce gets a restructure to the tune of $10 million in total restructure money to save $8 million against the 2021 salary cap. Chiefs cap room: $9.344 million

Defensive tackle Cheap Chris Jones Jersey is the last restructure needed to make salary cap room. Jones’ restructuring is a bit scarier due to him only having three years left on his contract, but good savings can be found. It is hard not to imagine that Jones is not in the Chiefs’ future plans, so the restructuring still feels safe. Even if the worst happens and the Chiefs need to cut Jones next offseason, they can still do so, saving $19 million in salary cap while having $6.8 million in dead money. Chiefs cap room: $15.344 million

Summary

At the end of cuts and restructures, the Chiefs are now $15 million under the worst-case salary cap of $180 million. This required only a few cuts and restructures and no major moves outside releasing Eric Fisher.

Looking into the future, the restructures have done very little down the road to the Chiefs’ future caps. In 2022 and 2023, the Chiefs added $8 million per year on Mahomes, Jones, and Kelce’s contracts. After that, it’s only $5 million a year till the end of the five-year period the restructure was spread out over.

This amount of borrowing from the future is entirely sustainable.

There are rumors that the salary cap will explode in 2022 due to the increased revenue share from the CBA, more lucrative TV deals and the return of in-person attendance. Over the Cap estimates the salary cap to be $227 million and other estimates have come in around that number as well. When this happens, will the Chiefs really care about $8 million tied up in three of their best players? No, they will not.

If the Chiefs wish to cut more players and make some more salary cap room, releasing players like Cheap Chad Henne Jersey, Cheap Dorian ODaniel Jersey, and Cheap Anthony Hitchens Jersey (with a June 1 designation) are other plausible options. The savings on these types of moves are minuscule though, and it seems the Chiefs like those three for their roles on the team and believe the savings would not outweigh the cost.

While $15.343 million in salary cap space seems like very little to work with, the Top 51 rule will extend that money further than it seems at first glance. The Chiefs’ offseason will look a lot like last year, as they will make signings and re-signings that seem to defy the math of the salary cap.

In the next part of the mock offseason series, we will attempt to simulate those physics-defying roster moves.

Custom Jerseyshttps://www.customjerseyspro.com/ From 24$.

Author’s note: Thank you to everyone who read my post about the free agents on offense. And I’d like to give a big thanks to AP for putting it on the main page. As promised, here is part two.

I think the free agents on the defensive side are a little more difficult to predict. However, I still do not think many of them are going to be highly sought in free agency. With a reduced cap, many teams badly over what a normal cap would be, and many teams having to setting their quarterback situation, this free agency is going to be hell on solid veteran role players. I could be wrong, but I think that most of the Chiefs’ defensive free agents are hitting free agency at the worst possible time for their situations. I will again predict that I think many players across the league will be playing for close to the veteran minimum.

DE Cheap Alex Okafor Jersey: He was one of the first free agents signed after Steve Spagnuolo became defensive coordinator. He has eight sacks in 21 games over two seasons. The Chiefs convinced him to take a pay cut last offseason, which implied that they probably were about to cut him if he had refused.

Prediction: Okafor and the Chiefs are going to move on from each other. Pay cuts usually create some hard feelings. Even if he has to take a veteran minimum deal, he’s going to take it somewhere other than Kansas City.

S Cheap Daniel Sorensen Jersey: Ah, “Dirty Dan.” He has gone from probably Arrowhead Pride’s least favorite Chief under Bob Sutton to a Cheap Mike Maslowski Jersey or Boomer Grigsby-level favorite under Spagnuolo. The forced fumble on the kickoff against Houston will probably forever be a top-15 Chiefs moment for me. In a previous generation, Sorensen would be that guy that a team with a new coach would want to bring in for intangibles and culture building. Usually with some generic coach speak such as, “This guy’s a football player.” The Chiefs do need to consider what he brings to the field. Even with a ton of improvement the last two years, Sorensen is very prone to the highest highs and lowest lows when you watch all of his plays. Other than the elite players, safeties have not done very well the last couple of years in free agency. I am not sure how much interest there would be in a 30-year-old Sorensen, even in a normal year with more money available.

Prediction: Sorensen will not generate substantial interest from other teams. A few weeks into free agency, he will sign for a veteran cap benefit contract, such as the one the Chiefs used to bring back Cheap Anthony Sherman Jersey and Cheap Demarcus Robinson Jersey for 2020.

CB Cheap Bashaud Breeland Jersey: This is one in which I really have no idea how it’s going to go. Breeland had a Super Bowl to forget but has overall played well in Kansas City. He has probably had the worst luck of any player ever in free agency. He had an offer taken off the table after injuring his foot on vacation. He played well and hit free agency with a failed drug test suspension looming. Now, he plays well again and enters free agency at a time that probably $640 million in cap space league-wide is disappearing. He probably benefits from this year’s cornerback draft class being considered well below average. On the other hand, teams have been more wary about signing away middle-tier corners the last couple of years after a large number of busts. I’m not sure how many teams are going to be interested in a 29-year-old corner who has a reputation for coverage penalties, recently suffered a concussion and is probably facing a year-long suspension if he ever has another off-the-field incident. I think the Chiefs prioritizing Deandre Baker might be a sign that they would prefer to move on from Breeland.

Prediction: Breeland will be disappointed by free agency again. I think he will probably still be available after the draft. At that point, he will either return to Kansas City or sign somewhere else for less money than he wants and probably less than he deserves.

LB Damien Wilson: I’m actually a fan of Cheap Damien Wilson Jersey. I like guys who know their role and do their job. The Chiefs did not make a huge investment in him, and I think they’ve probably gotten their money’s worth. If you want to know what the Chiefs really think of Willie Gay, watch what they do with Wilson. If they are relatively aggressive bringing him back, that probably means Gay did not show the improvement they were hoping for.

Prediction: The Chiefs will not make Damien Wilson a priority. If he is still available after the draft, they might bring him back on a very cheap deal.

DE Cheap Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey: Last postseason, it finally looked like Kpassagnon had it. He filled in well after Okafor and Emmanuel Ogbah went down. He had two sacks in the AFC championship game against the Titans, and he made a big time play in coverage against San Francisco. This season, he went back to looking like a replacement-level player. I would probably say Cheap Mike Danna Jersey outplayed him.

Prediction: I don’t know how much money he will make, but some other team will be intrigued by Kpassagnon’s physical makeup and be very aggressive in recruiting him. Even if the money is similar, Kpassagnon might think a new start is a better situation. The Chiefs should not bring him back unless it’s for close to the absolute minimum.

DT Cheap Mike Pennel Jersey: I think it’s fair to say Pennel made more of an impact in 2019 than he did in 2020, even if his snap count stayed pretty close to the same. He was a rotational player with usage varying by the opponent. I guess whether or not they make him a priority will be a good sign for what they really think about Cheap Khalen Saunders Jersey. Did the lack of offseason and then the Week 1 injury just put Saunders’ development behind? Or are they just done with him? One other thing to watch. The Chiefs will likely lose Cheap Derrick Nnadi Jersey to free agency after next season. It might be a good idea to use a day-three pick on a defensive tackle who profiles as a run-stopper, which would probably squeeze Pennel out of a roster spot.

Prediction: I don’t think the Chiefs will make Pennel a priority, but they will probably keep his number handy in case he’s available as an injury replacement. It’s very possible that a 30-year-old rotational defensive tackle with multiple drug suspensions will be available if the Chiefs need him in season.

CB Cheap Antonio Hamilton Jersey: Yawn. It’s time to remember back 11 months ago when we were so desperate for any Chiefs news that we were all happy the Chiefs signed Hamilton as their first addition of free agency. He looked pretty overmatched any time he saw action on defense. He was signed for special teams value. Anyone who played primarily on special teams for this team probably doesn’t have a ton to brag about. Given the number of times they called up defensive Cheap Chris Lammons Jersey from the practice squad to play on special teams, I think it would probably make more sense to go with the cheaper player in Lammons over Hamilton.

Prediction: Like Pennel, Hamilton is probably not getting a contract in the early days of free agency. The Chiefs probably will not re-sign him, but they might bring him back if he’s available as an injury replacement. The Chiefs can keep Lammons for the role Hamilton held.

DE Cheap Taco Charlton Jersey: As a Fort Worth resident who received regular coverage of everything that went wrong with Charlton and the Cowboys, I was very surprised by how well it was going with the Chiefs. I still don’t think he’s drumming up much interest coming off an injury. I think whether or not he’s expected to be healthy will decide if he’s a Chief in 2021. Fractured ankle can mean a wide range of things from a moderate hairline crack to a horrific mess that can never be perfectly put back together. Given how important a first step burst is for an edge rusher, it’s not a slam dunk that it heals in a way where he can play again. He was playing the best football of his career and is friends with Cheap Frank Clark Jersey, and we are very thin at his position, so I think there will be mutual interest if his ankle is good.

Prediction: If Charlton plays in the league in 2021, it will be with the Chiefs on another one-year deal.

LB Cheap Ben Niemann Jersey (Restricted): This is going to make some folks mad. The Chiefs are going to tender a restricted free agent offer to a player who played 43% of defensive snaps and 56% of special teams snaps this season. I actually respect Niemann a ton. I know he has a high football IQ and has to be a world-class hard worker to make it as far as he has with his athleticism. If the team wants to cut Dorian O’Daniel and keep Niemann as a core special teamer and backup, I’m actually OK with that. But he should not be seeing his defensive snap count. If I’m the Chiefs, I am scouting guys who played safety in college but are clearly too big to be NFL safeties to see if I can find one on day three of the draft to develop into the dime package coverage linebacker.

Prediction: The Chiefs will tender an offer to Niemann. He will probably be on the team in 2021 but hopefully will lose most of his defensive snaps to other players (looking at you, Cheap Willie Gay Jersey).

CB Cheap Charvarius Ward Jersey (restricted): A year makes a big difference. A year ago, I would have told you that Charvarius Ward would get a second-round tender to make sure that no team snatches him up. I have never been a big believer in Ward, but I thought we would need to put a higher tender on him to keep other teams from signing him. But the improvement I thought we would see this season flat out did not happen. You really can’t justify paying the extra million to put a higher tender on Ward. He cannot cover without holding. I don’t really fault a guy for not being able to come down with interceptions because there’s usually a reason defensive backs aren’t wide receivers. But his ball skills are exceptionally bad. I don’t think he is really a better outside corner than Cheap Rashad Fenton Jersey, who I like but I don’t particularly think is great. If BoPete Keyes shows some development this year, he would profile to a similar player to Ward. There will probably be some vets who are at least as good as Ward would would probably have a lower cap hit if signed to the veteran benefit contract.

Prediction: The Chiefs will tender an offer to Ward. I think Ward will be back, but I think this will be the last year we see him in Kansas City. If they manage to re-sign both Breeland and Ward, though, don’t be surprised if one of them doesn’t make it to final cuts if Deandre Baker is ready to go.

CB Cheap Alex Brown Jersey (exclusive rights): Brown probably should get a trophy for being the most forgotten player to dress for the Super Bowl LIV Champion Kansas City Chiefs. He was a reserve defensive back who played on special teams coverage units down the stretch. Sadly, he tore his ACL very early in camp and never had a chance to build on his experience. Given how down most draft experts, including the AP Nerd Squad are on this year’s cornerback group, the Chiefs may prefer a young player like Brown who knows the system to whatever might be available day three of the draft. On the other hand, he’s a small-school guy who got noticed by running a 4.42 40 at his pro day. If even a small portion of that speed is gone following the injury, so may be his chances of staying on the NFL radar.

Prediction: This one comes down to health. If the Chiefs are confident in his recovery, Brown will receive an exclusive rights tender, go to camp and probably be given a fair chance to win a spot on the back of the roster.

The Chiefs can probably find a way with the veteran salary benefit or unique salary structures to bring back anyone they want from this list. I would not say any player on this list will make or break the offseason, but it’s concerning how many players had very high snap counts. Even if the production was not always there, this is a large amount of usage to have to account for.
