4. Linebacker - The Chiefs can save $6.5 million against the cap by cutting veteran LB Anthony Hitchens this offseason. Even if he hangs around, the Chiefs need an upgrade to pair with 2020 second-rounder Willie Gay. Kansas City was 27th in rushing EPA defense, largely because of poor linebacker play.
Smith received 49 of 50 votes as the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year with one voter opting for Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. While others played better than Smith, his journey was tough to match. He finished with subpar numbers: six touchdowns and eight interceptions; a Total QBR of 38.8 as a starter, ranking 31st in the league during that period.
Entering last season, Prescott had won five of the eight games he’s played against the Eagles, but the veteran quarterback missed both games in 2021 with a broken ankle.NFL Indianapolis Colts Team Face Coverings
Hitchens accounts for $10.7 million against the cap in 2021 and $12.7 million in 2022. Releasing Hitchens cannot happen right away, however. If the Chiefs were to cut him right before or slightly after the 2021 league year, they would only free up $2.2 million. But, if they were to designate Hitchens as a post-June 1 cut, they would gain $6.4 million in cap space, per Over the Cap.NFL Detroit Lions Team Face Coverings

"The draft itself, it is stronger at the tackle position than it is at the interior," Colbert said. "Center and guard, traditionally, is not a very strong group. In any draft, the tackles are unusually deep this year. I think we can add players through the draft. Hopefully, we will be able to do some type of business in free agency. And we are always going to look at our own players first."
