Am I the only one excited about the possibility of landing Kyle Turley as,get this,a tight end?I love it!tight end;back-uptackle;and hell maybe he or Dunn can even play a little fullback.Just picture that sweep play.with Turley at tight end blocking off the DE (and basically the rest of the line)with Roaf and Weigman pulling out front and Dunn leading L.J. around the left side......The rest of the league is gonna need more defenders on the field.I don't know but it gets me worked up about the possibility.

Sounds good to me, but alas, like Admin I have not heard of him.

Looks like a football player. Like good ol' Lenny would say. :lol:

He was always drawing attention to himself being involved in practically every play. That is a great thing.

I would like to see him back as a lineman. He will have to put on the pounds again though. With those back issues of his, I don't know if it will be possible or not.

Kyle Turley was a stud of a right tackle for the Saints before he moved his stuff to St.Louis with the Rams. Where he was still a stud.He has had back problems and has lost alot of weight due to the injury,but he knows how to block.He would have been a starting left tackle for most N.F.L. teams but he was playing on teams that had (at the time)Willie Roaf,and Orlando Pace.He wants to play tight end.But with a little bit of size added to his frame again,he can be a dominant tackle from either end of the O-line.
You may recall a play with the Saints,where Arron Brooks ran for a short gain and after the stop was made, a defender could be seen wrenching on his helmet like a madman,even past the referees whistle.Kyle Turley saw it.and proceeded to rip the defenders helmet from his head.and after being penalized for the act.Kyle then threw the helmet halfway across the field.
I can't say for sure but I believe that was about five seasons ago.Aside from the attention he received for that incident,Kyle is a superb blocker both against the pass rush,and in run support.
For the sake of familiarity,I would compare his abilities(in his prime) to those of a John Tait.As offensive linemen go,Kyle Turley is a big name guy.

Tait was truly a man among boys; this guy could be a welcome addition to the depth at O-line.

I remember him throwing that helmet. Gave him a big thumbs up for that, even if I disagree with the action as a whole.

Wow, very interesting; I guess what people don't hear much about is what prompted him to react the way that he did. Not to make excuses for his behavior at the time, but folks should understand that there usually is a reason why someone would behave so out of character.

Well, of course, the media only shows what Turley did. There wasn't much coverage about what the other guy was doing.

Just like officials, only the second guy to throw a punch gets caught.

I really like turley. Ok now with that being said he is a little light to be playng gaurd or tackle.Im really thinking if we do get him it is to assist or backup Dunn.If we pound the ball as much as we have been told we are. We need anouther really good blocker at tight end. He can handle even the most athletic outside rushers. BUT if we mess up and put him in the interior TRENT better get some new tires. Because if i remember right brooks spent alot of the time out of the pockett. We have rode Dunn along time. The man is awsume!!!But if we could put a fresh monster in at end and keep pounding the left side i really dont think we even need a fullback. Not many people in the league want larry one on one . ;-)

I've told both my boys that very thing; it is always the one retaliates that gets caught. Gregory spent nearly the entire second half of a football game in Middle School on the bench after being ejected for that kind of situation. The kid opposite of him on the "O" line had been holding him all game long without a single call, and he had finally had his fill of it and went off on the kid. Not good I broke my foot off in his butt after the game, but I understood why he was angry.

You bring up some good points there Krazo. I hadn't looked at him in quite that way. I don't know aobut the Brooks situation though. From what little I saw of him, it seemed like he preferred to be out of the pocket anyway so he may have created some of those situations himself.

I have no problem with Turley at TE, I have always felt stacked at that position. TG has a way of making you overconfident sometimes I guess. :lol:

Exactly! Turley was a heck of tackle. The guy plays with his heart on his sleeve. He is mean without question. My thought is if the Chiefs sign him, they are hoping for him to become a tackle again. His use as a T.E. is somewhat intriguing however, I don't believe the Chiefs are looking for another T.E. I believe they are looking for more talent at the T position if he can regain his size and strength..

Turley about to sign deal with Kansas City

Kyle Turley is about to make a return to the NFL from a two-year hiatus.

FOXSports.com has learned that the former Saints and Rams tackle has agreed in principle to a two-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. The contract has yet to be signed but the team expects Turley to arrive at the Chiefs complex on Monday to sign the deal and complete a physical. Turley recently tried out for the Dolphins as a tight end but agreed to play tackle with the Chiefs, although they could work him in at TE in some cases as well.
Turley started every game but one from 1998-2003, but a back injury sidelined him after the 2003 season and Turley has not played since.

If he wins the starting right tackle job then both of the Chiefs' starting tackles would be former Saints first-round picks under former New Orleans team president Billy Kuharich, now the Chiefs VP of Player Personnel.

Turley's persona on the football field is one of a mean, angry and sometimes crazy player. Off the field, however, he is one of the NFL's most charitable players. He helped raise considerable funds in the wake of 9/11 and then last year after Hurricane Katrina drove down to New Orleans to help out and even offered to take a truck to Saints players homes, load them up, and drive their belongings to San Antonio. Turley also helped raise a considerable sum of money to help the victims of this disaster.

Turley had reportedly dropped 50 pounds from his playing weight at tackle when he tried out at tight end. It's unclear what his weight currently stands at.

CHIEFS REACH AGREEMENT IN PRINCIPLE WITH T KYLE TURLEY
Jun 11, 2006, 12:22:02 PM



Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Sunday that the club has agreed in principle on a two-year contract with T Kyle Turley. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.



“We are very pleased to acquire the services of a player of Kyle Turley’s experience and stature,” Peterson said. “We were very impressed with his recent workout for us and are confident he is ready to resume his NFL career. He will compete at the right tackle position for us and we believe he has the ability to perform at a high level.”

Turley (6-5, 300) has started all 95 games he has seen duty in during his seven-year NFL career with New Orleans (’98-02) and St. Louis (2003-04). He has opened 66 contests at right tackle, 17 games at left tackle and 12 contests at left guard. Turley has also started four playoff games. The Provo, Utah native earned All-Pro honors with the Saints in 2000 when he combined with current Chiefs T Willie Roaf to anchor an offense that ranked eighth in the NFL, producing 129.3 rushing yards per game.

Turley originally entered the NFL as a first-round pick (seventh overall) of New Orleans in the ‘98 NFL Draft, where he was selected by current Chiefs Vice President of Player Personnel Bill Kuharich who was serving as the Saints President, General Manager and Chiefs Operating Officer at the time. Turley played five seasons with the Saints, opening 79 contests. He also started two postseason contests for New Orleans, including the franchise’s first-ever playoff victory in 2000.

He was acquired by the Rams in 2003 from New Orleans in exchange for the Rams second-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft. He started 16 regular season games and one postseason contest at right tackle for St. Louis in 2003, serving as part of a Rams offense that ranked third in the league, averaging 247.6 yards per game. St. Louis also ranked fourth in the NFL in scoring that season, posting 25.6 points per game.

The San Diego State product earned All-America honors as a senior, becoming the first Aztecs lineman to win such accolades since ‘79. Turley started all 12 contests that season and was a finalist for the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award. He was named first-team all-league as a senior at Valley View High School in Moreno Valley, California.

Don't know if that was the first one, but had Turley ever regained his pre-injury playing ability, he would have been a tank.

Then, to have lost Roaf to retirement, shortly thereafter, it totally wrecked my plans for that season.
