THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!!!!! JC got a serious raise. And I am GLAD! He deserved it! The Chiefs did not overpay him. The Chiefs have him locked in for 4 years or until his production goes down with little or no cap hit if they decide to trade or release him because his production goes down. Means he would be good trade bait if he starts to lose a step. Dorsey proved he has some negotiating skills.


I see this as JC having given the Chiefs a break because he wants to stay with the team.

You're NEXT Alex Smith!!!! 5 years; $70 million; $28 million guaranteed. That's all I want for Christmas and my Birthday too!!!!!!!!

In an interview yesterday he said the Chiefs contacted his Agent about the extension. He did not start the negotiations but was a little dissapointed they waited until the last two days before camp to get it final.

They also interviewed Smith yesterday. He basically said quit asking him about it. Camp has started and when the Chiefs and his Agent agree then he will want to hear about it. At this point, I think the Chiefs are waiting to see what they have in their youth.

They also asked Houston and he said, he is not worried about his contract and is worried about playing football.

I think at this point all players are clear with where the Chiers stand and their intentions.

Sounds like the players are as sick of the off-season as I am. I think they are ready for some football!!!
