Chiefs Free Agency: Scott Pioli Says 'You Try Not To Change or Force Anything' In Offseason Approach

As the Kansas City Chiefs gear up for NFL's free agency period to open up, the frenzy can sometimes get the best of teams that end up only bidding against themselves in the hope of landing a coveted player. Scott Pioli hopes to avoid any such rash decisions as the team's general manager, and he describes his approach as reasoned heading into the offseason.

"You try not to change or force anything," Pioli recently told KCChiefs.com. "What you want to do is try to get good players who match your system or match your coaching staff. We’ll go into the draft and free agency filling those needs internally with our own free agents or with external players from other teams. I just like that we’re back to the normal way of doing things where we have free agency, then the draft."

The Chiefs have a few holes to fill, especially at offensive and defensive tackle. The team is also likely to add a veteran quarterback and possibly some help at running back. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow once the gates are open.
