Chiefs Continue to Build on Offense

Chiefs Continue to Build on Offense

Just days after completing a trade to bring in the new face of the franchise in quarterback Alex Smith, the Chiefs brought back one the the top wide receivers on the market by resigning Dwayne Bowe. The deal, believed to be 5 years, $56 million with $26 million in guarantees, assures that Smith will have at least one major target on the outside in 2013 and beyond.

Not done there, the Chiefs also brought back a little protection for Smith by placing the franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert.

The Andy Reid era seems to be kicking off on the right foot. He has his QB, has his threat on the outside, and has a very dangerous runningback in Jammal Charles. There really are a lot of parallels now in place to his hay-day with the Philadelphia Eagles where he had Donovan McNabb, Terrell Owens and Brain Westbrook leading the offensive charge to the tune of multiple NFC championship appearances and a trip to the Super Bowl.

By no means am I saying that the Chiefs should be considered Super Bowl contender; they still have work to do to get into the discussion for a playoff berth. That said, the framework for success is being laid in KC. They will certainly be a team to watch in 2013.
