of judgement Subsequently on the Tuesda Antworten

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Howie Kendrick Jersey . -- Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said Friday that he does not anticipate using the franchise tag on any free agents, something the team has done each of the past three seasons. The Chiefs are poised to lose several key players from last years 11-5 team, including Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert, Pro Bowl punt returner Dexter McCluster and starting defensive end Tyson Jackson, safety Kendrick Lewis and offensive guards Jon Asamoah and Geoff Schwartz. The deadline to use the franchise tag is March 3. "Probably not," Dorsey said. "We probably wont use it." The Chiefs used the tag on Albert last season, paying him more than $9.8 million -- the average of the top five salaries at his position the previous year. They could franchise him again but would be on the hook for 120 per cent of Alberts salary, a massive financial commitment for a team that is already bumping along just below the salary cap. Kansas City used the franchise tag on linebacker Tamba Hali two years ago, eventually signing him to a long-term contract. The same story unfolded last year for wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who signed a $56 million, five-year contract one year after receiving the tag. Dorsey did say that hes having "ongoing conversations" with representatives of all of the Chiefs free agents, including Albert, but refused to get into the specifics. "We will continue to have ongoing discussions with his representatives here at the combine," Dorsey said. "Weve done is weve reached out to every representative for every unrestricted free agent that we have, and weve also talked to Alex Smiths representative as well." Smith wont become a free agent until after the 2014 season, but signing him to an extension would not only lock him up but also offer some salary cap relief. Smiths number this is season is $8 million, but the Chiefs could trim that roughly in half with an extension. The Chiefs have already waived defensive back Dunta Robinson to free up salary, and its likely they will either restructure current contracts or part ways with some of their veterans in order to create more off-season flexibility. "I dont think its fair to talk about a players contract in a setting like this," Dorsey said. "I think thats not the proper business that you like to do." Dorsey did address several other issues at the combine, including his belief in building through the draft. Thats the same philosophy followed by his mentor, Ted Thompson of the Green Bay Packers, and one espoused by Chiefs coach Andy Reid. That means that the Chiefs are unlikely to be quite as active as they were in free agency last year, when they turned over roughly half of their roster. Free agency begins March 1. Still, there are plenty of holes to fill, especially along the offensive line. "We look at everybody right now and make sure that you cover all the positions," Reid said Thursday. "One of the tricks of the draft is that you take the best players available, if you can stay that disciplined to do so and make yourself a better football team." Other positions of need include free safety, where Lewis struggled much of the season, and wide receiver, where the Chiefs kept shuffling through options with little success. "We have a pretty good group of young players to form a nice nucleus," Reid said. "I look forward to adding guys too, and Im a big believer that you build your team through the draft. Free agency can be a bit of a tease at times, and I think you have to be real careful." Matt Wieters Jersey . Orlando is to begin play in the MLS for the 2015 season.

The trio, along with flanker Ardie Savea and prop Chris Eves, will miss the Super Rugby clash against the Reds on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 3, as a punishment for arriving back late to the team hotel before Hurricanes played the Sharks in Durban. Hurricanes suffered a 32-15 defeat to the South African side - a result which leaves them six points behind New Zealand conference leaders Crusaders. Chris Boyd, the Hurricanes coach, revealed on Thursday that the five players had agreed on a curfew for their two matches in South Africa, but had marginally missed the cut-off time having gone out for the evening.In Durban there is a lot of potential for distraction, he said. The beaches are good, the climate is good, the food is good and everything is cheap. And they had been warned about those distractions. Hurricanes coach Chris Boyd said the players made a poor error of judgement Subsequently on the Tuesday, which was the night before our day off, five players marginally missed that curfew. They were bound by the team protocols and will miss one game.Boyd refused to reveal the exact time of the curfew but said the players had been back before midnight.This was a one out of 10 offence with a 10 out of 10 punishment, he added.

Victor Vito will also miss the clash against the Queensland Reds Boyd said the reason they did not miss the match against Sharks was that the team had only 27 players in South Africa. Dropping the five would have meant Hurricanes could not have fielded a match-day complement of 23.The five players have apologised to the team and management, with Boyd adding: None of them are happy they have made a poor error of judgement.We have talked internally that it shouldnt be a distraction.
