As for the salary discussion and the future of the Cheifs, here are some highlights to throw on the discussion. These numbers don't include bonus' and incentives.
Holmes - 05 2,415,000 / 06 3,250,000
LJohnson - 05 628,000 / 06 741,000
Green - 05 4,700,000 / 06 5,700,000
Gonzo - 05 3,000,000 / 06 3,600,000
Roaf - 05 1,000,000 / 06 3,500,000
Shields - 05 4,300,000 / 06 5,100,000
The most alarming of all is obviously the jump in Roaf's contract due next year. LJ is signed through 2010 as is Holmes. His extension in 2003 pushed him out that far. I'm not a KC fan so Ican't elaborate too much as to what they will do, but with their key players ages as well as salaries, it would make sense to try and move Holmes and allow for LJohnson to take the role due to salary alone. Of course LJohnson will most likely hold out the season after he is the full time starter for more money, which he will most likely deserve. But everyone else listed above has their time remaining limited in the NFL.
