I know the Chiefs Kingdom isn’t happy about this. I for one am not phased about the decision made by Clark Hunt. I fully support the decision made by Mr. Hunt. Why? In this article, I will outline why.
Dorsey did a real number with managing the cap. Lots of dead money. This money could have been used to retain Poe or even Maclin. While I’ve said in previous posts that the Chiefs will be fine without him, and I still believe so, the Chiefs could have retained him if they had the cap space. This terrible mismanagement of the cap will make things hard for the Chiefs this season and possibly next.
Houston, Berry, Poe, Maclin. All up for contract renewal this season. The Chiefs managed to retain only Houston and Berry (the two most important in my opinion). There was a long lag in getting both Houston and Berry signed to new contracts,. Which was the responsibility of Dorsey. That was an unnecessary risk. The Chiefs ran the risk of losing two very important players. Two players which in my opinion that they couldn’t afford to lose.
Coach Reid will be fine without Dorsey. He turned the Chiefs into winners from being losers. The Chiefs will be fine, they will still make the playoffs as usual. I just don’t guarantee a Super Bowl appearance although.
The Chiefs will be OK without Dorsey. They will find someone to replace him and it will be business as normal.
