Many of the top impending free agent pass rushers didn’t make it to market due to franchise tags and others came off the board once the legal tampering window opened on Monday Derrick Thomas Jersey , but there are still some on the market.One is Markus Golden, who had 12.5 sacks during the 2016 season but has been limited to 15 games over the last two seasons because of injuries. He tore his ACL in October 2017 and never regained his form while playing a new role in Steve Wilks’ defense in Arizona last season.Vic Tafur of reports that those struggles haven’t stopped four teams from showing interest in Golden. Tafur names the Giants, Buccaneers http:// , Raiders and Chiefs as those teams. Three of those teams have coaches with ties to Golden.The Giants’ defensive coordinator James Bettcher had the same job in Arizona when Bruce Arians was the head coach. Arians is now the head coach in Tampa while former Cardinals defensive line coach Brentson Buckner now has the same job with the Raiders. Tyrann Mathieu turned heads with a Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY SportsWe need to be careful here. A little over a year ago, I wrote an article detailing how Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach used the word, “mindset Womens Larry Johnson Jersey ,” eight times during Anthony Hitchens’ opening press conference.The Chiefs signed Hitchens following the 22-21 stunner to the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round, a game in which the Chiefs gave up 19 straight points to lose.As we know now, that turned out to be a nice thought Len Dawson Jersey , and not much else. The Chiefs finished No. 31 in yards allowed per game and many correctly blamed losing the AFC title game against the New England Patriots on the defense thanks to giving up 37 points and being powerless against Tom Brady in overtime.Fast-forward to February. Bob Sutton is gone. Enter Steve Spagnuolo.Watching the defense last year and the year before, Spagnuolo’s words feel like another reach. But it is a good sign that the message is already being passed along to his players.Just look at Tyrann Mathieu’s official Twitter account on Friday.And here we go again.If you’re a Chiefs fan, you should feel good about Mathieu’s words. The Chiefs and their leaders see what we have seen and they intend to change that. But don’t forget that we heard similar things last season and the team never met those expectations.With a new defensive coordinator , new scheme and new defensive leader, it is possible things will be different in 2019.But remember: a mindset shift goes only as far as the white lines.
