Free-agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe is asking for a contract worth $10 million per year, ESPN’s Jordan Raanan reports.
Poe has spent the first five seasons of his career in Kansas City, but the Chiefs opted not to place the franchise tag on the 28-year-old, allowing him to hit the open market.
The Chiefs have just $4.32 million in cap space, so barring some significant cuts or reworking of current contracts, Poe will be playing somewhere else in 2017.
The former second-round pick had 27 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one forced fumble this past season.
