CBS analyst and former sports agent Joel Corry points out the Chiefs have two would-be free agent pass rushers in the pipeline with Dee Ford this offseason and Chris Jones next year.

Agent's Take: Get used to the $20M-per-year pass rusher; here's who could be next

Corry's take on Ford:

"Ford's leverage will increase if the Chiefs part ways with edge rusher Justin Houston. The Chiefs are reportedly open to trading Houston, whose $21.1 million 2019 salary cap number is the NFL's third highest among defensive players. The Chiefs may be reluctant to hand Ford a lucrative multi-year contract given that his play last season can be considered an outlier, which is how the Cowboys treated (DeMarcus) Lawrence last year when he was a first-time franchise tag recipient."

Corry argues if the Chiefs gets a long-term deal done with Jones first, that could further complicate the relationship with Ford.
