Boomer Grigsby Update - Chiefs Let Him Walk to Miami ( From Warpaint illustrated )

Just got off the phone with Boomer Grigsby who was about to board a plane out of Miami and he told me that he's signed a one-year deal with the Maimi Dolphins. He turned down a two-year offer from an NFC team thinking this was the best chance for him to become a full time starting fullback in the NFL.

We'll have an exclusive interview with him up shortly.

This reminds me of last years Kawika Mitchell/Napoleon Harris situation. Get rid of one guy, for a mirror image of the same guy.

He may have been a locker room favorite, but he didn't do much on the field from what I saw.

He wasn't even on the field much.

How did you see him?

i wish they had more guys that gave it like he did on the field. it seemed he always gave it all when on the field.
but he was average at best. i would have liked to see them more time at fullback.

boomer was a fan favorite.... i will miss seeing him in lot-G with the fans... but i agree with coach. he never really did fill in t-rich's spot at fullback...

i remember offering boomer a beer at the raiders game, and i remember his exact quote "tempting as it sounds, i'll take a tonic and water, minus the tonic"

NEVER FILLED HIS SPOT! A linebacker makes it into the pros at a low level and works himself into a back up role on a team that needed good linebackers at the time... (S. Barber, M. Misloski, & S. Fujita -- all career back-ups themselves for the most part). Then when the team is loaded on linebackers a couple years later he guts out a switch that doesn't pan out right away - GIVE THE GUY A BREAK! HE IS A GUTSY, SMART, ENTUSIASTIC FOOTBALL PLAYER & EVERY SPECIAL TEAMS SQUAD WOULD BE LUCKY TO HAVE HIM ON THE TEAM
- GOOD LUCK BOOMER

Agreed. Although it is still quite unknown rather he will be able to perform as a FB.

Watch the jets game last year - he lit some guys up in that game . He really never got to play enough to get to show off his energy. Look how many people say give Brodie Croyle a shot , he hasnt played enough to know if he is gonna be the guy or not ( I think both cases are almost the same ) . Im sure people will disagree but I thought given more of a chance he would have been an impact player ( just like Croyle " Might " be ) .Too late now anyways hes gone. I hope he makes the office at Arrowhead look like fools . I'll be watching him play !

Yep!

Totally agree!

I'm sure Boomer will have a SB ring next year like Mitchell and Tynes.

Carl and Herm are asses!

No doubt, I would like to have seean him get that chance here. But having been denied that opportunity, I have a difficult time judging his ability to do the job.

There's a lot of that going around when Herm is put in charge.
