Chiefs sign veteran WR Curtis


The Chiefs made an interesting roster move, signing veteran wide receiver Kevin Curtis.
Curtis may well have nothing left. He's 32 and played in just two games this season with Miami and caught one pass for six yards.
But as recently as 2007 he caught 77 passes with six TDs for the Eagles. The Chiefs obviously believe Curtis has something left, so this signing bears watching.
The Chiefs placed injured defensive back Donald Washington on injured reserve. They also signed tight end Cody Slate to their practice squad. Slate went to camp with the Chiefs last summer.

Interesting signing. Hope he can help. We need the help at the WR spot. We need everyone to step up on the other side of Bowe.

Did they sign him because Chambers isnt doing anything or what?

I think that had something to do with it. I think we just brought him in for the playoffs I don't really see him being in KC going into next season.

I just wonder how much he can bring to the table since he will only have a few days to learn the offense.

Here he is in 08 with the eagles, he seems to make the first guy miss alot. Did not relize he was 32, give him crossing and go routes which seem to be his thing.

I think they just had room since they moved Donald Washington to IR. I don't expect Curtis to be much of a contributor at all.

I remember wanting to bring Curtis in for a look before the season started the last two seasons.

I would think he wouldn't be a contributor, but on the other hand, I seem to remember us signing Bobby Wade on like a Tuesday and then him starting on Sunday and catching 6 passes for 72 yards...

Got to remember since he is on his last leg, the Dolphins went nowhere and he joined a team about to play in the playoffs so he might be thinking this is his last time to be in the playoffs and go all out...which I think he will.

Word is on espn Bowe was not at practice this morning and they said the reason Kevin Curtis did not play too many games this season was because he was being treated for Cancer of the testies.

Any word on where Bowe was I would hate to see anther Cassel thing. Worst time for that.

Gosh. I'm just surprised at how our only real offensive threat is Dwayne Bowe. Chambers is obismo on our offense. Not sure about this Curtis, but I hope he can help Bowe more the Chambers has. Moeaki also has to be targeted more. Hasn't been much of a contributor like he was at the start of the season. We need to use all of our targets on sunday. GO CHIEFS!

I heard that there was no worries that Bowe wouldn't beable to play Sunday. If its just an illness I doubt Waters and Bowe will miss because I mean what athlete would want to miss a chance to play in a playoff game just because of the stomach flu

Kevin was probably just brought in, because he's a good veteran receiver who has playoff experience (something that most of our team doesn't have). I highly doubt he's going to be a focal point of our team, coming in this quickly. He'll do more for us off the field than on it in my opinion. Still I actually think this was a nice signing.
