Chiefs re-signed OG Jordan Devey.

Devey has spent the last two years with Kansas City after getting claimed off waivers from the 49ers. He'll return in a backup role in 2018.
Mar 16 - 8:02 PM

Chiefs signed QB Chad Henne, formerly of the Jaguars.

Henne has attempted just two regular season passes since the end of the 2014 season and has struggled in recent preseason play. Nevertheless, he makes sense as a Chiefs signing to fill the veteran mentor role behind Patrick Mahomes, who has made one career start. Henne turns 33 in July. In an ideal world, he will never enter a game in a Chiefs uniform.
Mar 16 - 4:05 PM

Chiefs re-signed P Dustin Colquitt to a three-year, $7.5 million contract.

He can earn another $1.5 million through incentives. Turning 36 in May, Colquitt has been the Chiefs' punter since 2005. Colquitt's net-punting average of 41.1 yards last season was the best of his career.
Mar 15 - 11:42 AM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports free agent QB Chad Henne will visit the Chiefs on Thursday.

Henne will visit the Titans in the morning before heading to Kansas City, assuming, of course, he does not get a deal from Tennessee. The veteran backup has also been linked with the Dolphins.
Mar 15 - 10:50 AM

Chiefs re-signed WR/KR De'Anthony Thomas and LB Terrance Smith.

A gadget player who is a core special teamer, Thomas touched the ball 15 times in 2017. He is currently recovering from a broken leg. Thomas turned 25 in January.
Mar 14 - 6:08 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are interested in free agent QB Chad Henne.

Henne is also scheduled to visit the Titans. The Dolphins are eager to upgrade Matt Moore behind Ryan Tannehill, but Henne couldn't be called an upgrade. Going on 33, Henne has attempted two passes since 2014.
Mar 14 - 5:38 PM

Chiefs tendered restricted free agent DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches at the original-round level.

Nunez-Roches made 11 starts last year but graded out poorly at PFF on his 392 snaps. The Chiefs will get a sixth round pick if he signs with another team.
Mar 14 - 4:41 PM

Chiefs re-signed DL Jarvis Jenkins.

Jenkins played 249 snaps for the Chiefs last season, faring okay against the run. He'll return to compete for a rotational role in Chiefs camp this summer.
Mar 14 - 12:23 PM

Chiefs signed LB Anthony Hitchens, formerly of the Cowboys.

The deal is reportedly worth $9 million per year, a number which puts Hitchens near the top of the market for off-ball linebackers. Hitchens will play on the inside in Kansas City, a big area of need with mainstay Derrick Johnson a free agent. Hitchens recorded 84 tackles across 12 games for the Cowboys last season.
Mar 13 - 8:28 AM

Chiefs signed Sammy Watkins, formerly of the Rams, to a three-year, $48 million contract.

The deal reportedly includes $30 million guaranteed, a massive number for a player with a concerning health history. With strong-armed Patrick Mahomes now under center, GM Brett Veach made noise about adding another speedy receiver to play opposite Tyreek Hill, but it is still surprising to see the Chiefs making this big of a splash. Watkins seems to perfectly fit what they were looking for, however. He has averaged over 15 yards per catch in each of his first four seasons, and 13 of his 25 career touchdowns have come from 20 yards or more, although he also showed his ability in the red zone last season. While Watkins would seem to be a good real-life fit, it is fair to wonder how much fantasy value he will return in an offense helmed by a first-year starter with Hill and Travis Kelce demanding targets and Kareem Hunt in the backfield.
Mar 13 - 8:16 AM

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports free agent Sammy Watkins is the Bears' "top target."

Biggs reports the Bears are also interested in Allen Robinson, but the team views Watkins a safer bet since he's 100 percent healthy and not coming off a serious injury. Both receivers were linked to multiple teams on Monday, including Watkins with the Bears, Packers, Chiefs, and Jaguars. The Rams are also said to want to keep Watkins, but his market could get out of hand.
Mar 12 - 11:16 PM

First Coast News reports the Jaguars are interested in free agent Sammy Watkins.

It's extremely interesting, as it's been presumed one of the reasons the Jags were comfortable letting Allen Robinson hit the open market was because of their young prospects at receiver. They do reportedly remain open to re-signing Robinson. It's ultimately difficult to see Watkins ending up in teal.
Mar 12 - 4:12 PM's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers, Chiefs and Bears are interested in free agent Sammy Watkins.

Rapsheet has also linked the Bears and Pack to Allen Robinson. CBS' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday that the Rams were "working actively" to re-sign Watkins but it's quite possible the market quickly gets away from them. The Bears have the cap space and dire need to make a huge offer.
Mar 12 - 1:55 PM

Chiefs re-signed FB Anthony Sherman.

Sherman did have six catches and scored a rushing touchdown last season, but his biggest contributions come on special teams. That should continue moving forward.
Mar 12 - 10:55 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Rams are "working actively" to re-sign free agent Sammy Watkins.

Watkins is reportedly "open to staying." La Canfora mentions Watkins possibly settling for a "bridge" contract, likely on a one- or two-year deal to continue to rebuild other teams' confidence in his ability to stay healthy and effective. Watkins' "market" to this point has been pretty quiet. Most teams likely view him as a fallback plan to fellow free agent Allen Robinson.
