Chiefs Free Agency 2012: Kyle Orton, Tyler Palko Among Impending Free Agents

The Kansas City Chiefs came up short of reaching the postseason in 2011, but saw some occasional glimpses of brilliance that should give them hope for next season. One of the issues that they will need to address in 2012 is their quarterback situation. Tyler Palko will be a free agent with whom the team has exclusive rights, but Kyle Orton is set to become a restricted free agent.
