A league source told Scout.com to expect free agent WLB Demorrio Williams (Atlanta Falcons) to visit the Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Chicago Bears.

Kansas City does have veteran WLB Donnie Edwards but he turns 35 in April. Tampa Bay's starting WLB Derrick Brooks also turns 35 in April. And Chicago's starting WLB Lance Briggs is now an unrestricted free agent and is a long-shot to return.

Both Tampa Bay and Chicago run a Cover-2 defense which suits Williams' talent very well.

I think he had a big year in '06. But I am not real sure what kind of player he is.

Demarrio Williams' statistical slide continued in 2007 as he notched 78 total tackles, no sacks, two interceptions and two passes defensed. Williams might have come back too soon from a pectoral injury, which might have affected his play. He is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
(Updated 01/09/2008). uh, does not sound real promising......another K.Bell?

You can say that again!

I say Clark is getting a free pass because of Lamar's passing, but he is going to be held responsible after this year if the Chiefs don't do something about the O line!

CHIEFS HAUL IN WILLIAMS

The free-agency frenzy continues, even late into a Saturday night.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the Chiefs have agreed to terms with former Falcons linebacker Demorrio Williams on a five-year, $16 million contract.

The deal includes $5.5 million in guaranteed money.I posted this in another thread, sorry. and I agree with Pawnshop-another K.Bell

Give em a chance before you get on his case. K Bell was good in Pit and stunk here, maybe this guy is average in ATL and shines in KC!

...and to the rest of you, the defece isn't perfect. We need players on BOTH sides of the ball!

too true Canada, it was a pec injury and not a shoulder like K.B. and before that injury K.B. was d.r.o.y. in 2001. just a little "gun shy" is all. but you are correct-he is after all now a CHIEF!!!!!

K.Bell was a whole lot more expensive. This guy is likely being brought in at a reasonable price, as depth. And possibly to compete for a starting job.

Besides, when we signed Bell, he was coming off a very good statistical season. Lots of hype.

Honestly, with the LB's we already have, I think we are bringing him in for depth. I'm looking for him to be a replacement for Fox or something along those lines. I think we'll see him on the field mostly during kick-offs.

Absolutely; as long as we get him at a fire sale price. :D

Is $5.5 mil guaranteed, and $10.5 over 5 years cheap?

It's a clearence price for a starter, or a fair price for a quality backup.

Is that just for LB?

I think that would go for most positions. It's kinda low-end for a starter, and kinda high-end for a backup. At least as far as free agents go.

Yes, with the amount of cap space we've cleared.

10.5 over 5 years equates to 2.1 mil a year - peanuts, comparatively speaking.
