I dont think hes that old actually.

I think he came out BYU old though, I seem to think he was 25 when he joined the Chiefs.

You are correct about coming out of college a little older. "Tait is a devout Mormon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormon) and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Church_of_Jesus_Christ_of_Latter-Day_Saints). He took two years off from college to complete his volunteer mission for the Church in Tennessee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee). " from Wikipedia. He is 34 years old. I just remember the whole debacle in negotiations with king Carl his rookie season. Peterson drove a lot of good players away, and probably kept a lot from wanting to come here in the first place. Anyway, I wish him the best of luck in retirement. :bananen_smilies046:

Hmmm just curious what every one's thoughts are but do you think the Bears would be interested now in trading up so they could get a OT? I know all sorts of draft day trades can be made but hey...if they're close to going to the big game they might want that pick more now.
