    Tepid Market? He needs to hire Drew Rosenhaus as his agent and there will be a market for him.

    Why put up the issue of saving cap space when you also state that he’ll be turning 32? The age factor is weighed much heavier than his minuscule cap number when the Chiefs already have 5 TRILLION dollars of cap space.
