    There are Facebook posts going on within the last hour or so saying the Chiefs signed Shaun Smith...legit or rumor?

    I just heard a rumor that the chiefs have signed shaun smith to a contract. I did some minor research and found a twitter page with his name on it and a big arrow head as the pic.

    Barry Peraino link?


    about an hour ago

    Joe Bates I had read a blog that they were very interested in Smith. Haven't seen where they signed him yet. He's a big DT that played for Romeo in Cleveland.

    i think this shows that we wont reach at #5 with a NT. Thank god. I dont even want a NT in the 2nd rd. unless there is one that is worth it. but i dont think there will be. hopefully Smith will be an upgrade and get us by till next year or two and hopefuly there is a NT in next year draft.

    This could be one of the underrated Pioli signings A guy who want get you real excited but a guy who just goes out and helps the team. I hope he turns out to be a good help for the defense.

    Ehh I disagree...I think at the least it adds depth, but Shaun Smith is no prized NT. This guy wasn't picked up by Cincinnati until week 15 last year...before that he wasn't even on a team. NT is a very critical position in the 3-4 scheme, the Chiefs need to take a shot on a rookie that can be above average at that position.

    But there are very few true 3-4 rookie nose tackles out there, and even fewer that are any good.

    I don't think we need a supreme player at that position, we need a guy that can fill the holes. I am not sure Smith is that guy, but I don't agree with the idea that this is the most important need for this team right now.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    Right, but Smith is a medicore backup at best. The NT is a critical position in the 3-4, b/c if he's not occupying 2-3 blockers, LBs are getting blocked and not getting free. It is definitely worth investing in one of the top NTs in this years draft, b/c right now our options are very poor. Remember, this is a team that is trying to convert 4-3 DT's to NT.

    Does anyone remember who gave up the 2nd most rushing yards last year to a clip of 4.7YPC?

    2 Career sacks? Not really impressive for being in the leauge long. Must he be a really good run stopper?
