Perhaps.

I think you immediately cross Landon Collins off the list. The Giants won't let him go, especially for free. They'll tag him at worst and they have enough cap to absorb it. He's the best safety in the NFL.

Let's move on to Tyrann Mathieu. Grossly overrated but has a leadership quality to him that the Texans love. He's the 3rd best safety on that team but something tells me they'll let Kareem Jackson walk and work hard to re-sign Mathieu. Honestly, I'd probably pass on bringing him in if available.

Now onto Earl Thomas... Easily the most likely to sign in KC and easily the one that will be available. After his **** you gesture to the team and coaches, there's no way Seattle even attempts to re-sign him. He'd be a good get but he's going to be 30 and he has two broken legs in 3 years. I'm cautious and he's going to command over $10m per.

So we get to Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix. Obviously, the Redskins are going to try their asses off to re-sign him. He's played well for them and they traded for him. I don't think he hits the market.

Now we have Lamarcus Joyner. Joyner has been a key piece of the Rams defense for several years now and they thought so well of him that they put the franchise tag on him. I'm thinking they waited to sign Joyner long-term because of the Aaron Donald situation. That said, Joyner's play has regressed severely this season and that puts his status in question. I don't think he's a schematic fit in KC, especially given his struggles playing single-high this year the way KC plays it, and would likely pass regardless of whatever happens.

We have Tre Boston, whom I like alot. I think he fits the age/price/production criteria that I'd look for. Arizona thinks quite a bit of him though too and I think they'll try to keep him in town. I'd have to think Boston is looking to settle in somewhere as well, having jumped around a few times already in his career. I have a hard time seeing Arizona letting him walk but if they do then KC should see what he's asking.

You also have Adrian Amos who is a very solid SS but he's not amazing in coverage. I think it depends on your plans for Berry on whether or not you look at this kid. Even then, I think Chicago is going to work to re-sign him and he doesn't hit the market.

That, pretty much, leaves Eric Reid as the last of a tier. Now, Reid is talented and he would likely fit but he's not someone I see KC pursuing. He's extremely positioned with the whole protest movement and whatnot as well as being vocal and even confrontational about it (see the Malcolm Jenkins ordeal). Clark Hunt isn't signing off on that in this locker room so take him straight off the list.
