    well, if they get that 22-35 million projected cap like you said, I’m sure they will be okay

    That's a whole lot of roster spots to fill. They are not going to be able to pay up for anyone.

    25 of top 53 Chiefs are free agents in 2021. Some of them are well paid and big contributors. They will lose many of those and not be able to replace them with anyone that costs much.

    For comparison, Titans projected to have 30-45m in 2021 and have the following free agents:
    Derrick Henry
    Jayon Brown
    Jonnu Smith
    Vic Beasley
    DaQuan Jones
    Corey Davis
    Mycole Pruitt
    Kamalei Correa
    Jonathan Joseph
    Anthony Firkser
    Jack Crawford
    Ty Sambrailo
    Chris Milton
    Tye Smith
    Nick Dzubnar
    That's 15 players, and we have substantially more cap space.

    I'd take a GM job for an expansion team. I'll even take a low salary! What's the going rate of an average NFL GM these days? $5M/yr? I'll take half of that!

    More like the power of rookie contracts. His contract is an extension, meaning his contract for the next two years is what it would have been had he not signed this deal.

    There it is. I was confused on how this was possible.

    "There were two things I said when we went into negotiations: I wanted to keep great players around me and I wanted to have long-term security for my family," Mahomes said


    I wonder how many great players they can keep when they are paying 1 player 45mil a year?
