    Absolutely. They'll have to basically disband the squad after this year. Frank Clark's cap hit in 2021 is $25.8 million alone!

    Theyve only got one more year left before it gets real dicey

    All the more reason why it's odd they wouldn't trade Jones and/or Watkins when this is a pretty deep draft class. Free up cash and retool your roster with younger talent.

    I mean there is logic in dancing with the girl that brought you so to speak, for 1 more year, but you gotta think long term. I imagine Sammy Watkins could have pulled a mid round pick and you know Jones is going to pull a 1st and may be another mid round pick. They could add a lot of cost controlled talent with that many picks.

    KC wants one more year at a run. After Mahomes gets paid, and they cut half their squad, they won't be dominant anymore. Might as well get another year with all the stars.

    I don't think it matters. They won the Super Bowl. Mission accomplished and I'm sure it was worth it. Now sign the best player in the NFL, retool, re-calibrate, and see if he can do it again.

    ...which he probably can.

    If they get back-to-back Ships, then even more wroth it.

    I disagree. See if you can win again. Now. You know you're capable. Doesn't matter the cost. Take advantage while you can. Who cares about 3 years from now? Barring injury, as long as they have that franchise QB, they'll always be in some form of contention. Doesn't matter who is around him. You'll always have more draft picks. No guarantees you can replace someone like Jones.

    Exactly...teams go for years without winning a SB... Some never do..you get a chance to keep it going, you do it.

    Keep the key pieces to build around, in KC's situation that's Mahomes.

    That's what NE did..they kept Brady

    NE also routinely traded star players for picks or let them walk for for draft pick compensation (they turned the Vrabel trade into Patrick Chung for instance). Their moto for everyone except Brady, was basically next man up. It also helped that Brady repeatedly took team friendly extensions and restructured contracts in an effort to help retain key players to keep his team among the AFC elite.

    Every GM cares about 3 years from now. If you aren't, then you aren't a very good GM.

    There's a cost/benefit for every move. You just gotta figure out that happy medium
