Chiefs | Trying to clear cap space

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 23:26:12 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs would like to clear some extra cap space in order to further improve their roster, but there aren't many veterans who would be logical cap casualties. ESPN.com's Adam Teicher writes that the biggest savings would come from LB Tamba Hali, CB Brandon Flowers, and SS Eric Berry, but notes that those players are too productive to let go. WR Dwayne Bowe and CB Sean Smith would make more sense on the field, but financially are not options for release.
