That well could be the case. Scott Pioli, who was the general manager back in 2012 when Poe was drafted, is the assistant general manager down in Atlanta, so this move makes ideal sense. It's also possible the Chiefs first offered Poe the contract they gave to Logan.
Chiefs fans don't wish any ill will towards Poe.
"We love the kid", coach Andy Reid said then. Poe spent his first five seasons with the Chiefs, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a contract extension to keep him in Kansas City. Logan is a physical player, and his skill set and aggressiveness will hopefully add a spark to the Chiefs defense in the 2017 season. The Colts knew what they wanted to pay Poe, didn't overpay, and still will have good defensive line options in free agency.
A two-time Pro Bowler, Poe arguably was the top defensive lineman on the free agent market.
It's also reasonable the Chiefs, even setting their tight salary cap situation aside, wouldn't want to have him back except at their price.
Carr, a 10-year National Football League veteran who turns 31 in May, is coming off his best season, when he had one interception, nine pass deflections, a quarterback pressure, a tackle for loss and 61 tackles for the Dallas Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys re-signed one backup running back Darren McFadden to a one-year contract worth $980,000. His run stopping ability is his biggest talent and will eat blockers as well allowing edge rushers like Vic Beasley to get to the quarterback more effectively.
