Chiefs could call Commanders about Chase Young or Montez Sweat
Wouldn't this be something?
The Kansas City Chiefs look primed for another strong defense of their Super Bowl crown. They currently sit at 6-1 despite not being at their best offensively, with Andy Reid's men relying more on the defensive side of things to accumulate wins this time around.
Their defensive end duo of George Karlaftis and Mike Danna have 7.5 sacks between them. This is solid if not spectacular production, so there's little doubt either Montez Sweat or Chase Young would upgrade this area of the field considerably.
One potential stumbling block is the need to extend the two former first-round picks - depending on which one is deemed surplus to requirements by the Washington Commanders if they pull the trigger on a trade. The Chiefs have $51.65 million in available funds next spring, but they also have 24 free agents including stud defensive tackle Chris Jones.
Obviously, the cap can be manipulated to a level where Kansas City might be able to accommodate everybody. But much will also depend on the money Sweat and Young are going to demand when it's time for his representatives to begin contract negotiations.
This almost wouldn't be fair. Placing Young or Sweat next to Jones would give opposing offensive lines nightmares, only enhancing their hopes of lifting yet another Super Bowl under Andy Reid.
