    Default Chiefs Free Agent News and Rumors


    0 Not allowed!
    I didn't see a thread covering free agency news so I thought I would start one. Feel free to add any Chiefs news or rumors regarding free agency here.

    According to ArrowheadPride.com, here is a slist of current Chiefs who are unrestricted free agents:

    NT Ron Edwards
    DE Shaun Smith
    WR Terrance Copper
    C Casey Wiegmann
    S Jon McGraw
    LB Charlie Anderson
    WR Kevin Curtis
    CB Travis Daniels
    LB Mike Vrabel
    FB Tim Castille
    OT Ryan O'Callaghan
    LB Corey Mays
    TE Leonard Pope
    C Rudy Niswanger
    QB Brodie Croyle

    Vrabel has announced his retirement and Wiegman has expressed an interest in playing another year. I think he is a must sign. What other Chiefs do you think we need to sign and who should we let go?

    Here are some other UFAs that the Chiefs are reportedly interested in:

    Right Tackle: Doug Free (Dallas), Jermon Bushrod (new Orleans)

    Last year Jamaal Charles averaged 6.4 yards per carry when running to the left, but only 4.3 ypc when running to the right.

    Nose Tackle: Aubrayo Franklin (San Francisco)

    The Chiefs drafted Jerrell Powe (6th round) this year but he'll be raw and probably only a rotation player to start with. They may resign Ron Edwards, but if they don't Franklin would would be a force up the middle.

    Other free agents that the Chiefs are reportedly interested in:

    Offensive Tackle: Jared Gaither (Baltimore)
    Running Back: Le'Ron McClain (Baltimore)
    Wide Receiver: Steve Breaston (Arizona)

    What are your thoughts?

    Why they get that wrong. It was live radio saying he is noticeably out of shape.

    I guess they could have got the wrong guy and it was someone else taking a knee after every drill and taking off his helmet.

    I guess they could be lying just to make a story. I think they actually made the comment that Houston is Huffing and Puffing to a tune he isn't used to puffing.....

    I'm sure it's a mix of the media blowing things up, and Houston being a rookie (I'm sure every rookie gets a wake up call when it comes to conditioning in the NFL, from what I've hear, there is a HUGE step in the conditioning levels from College to the pros. There was another post on here saying Baldwin was out of shape but then I read somewhere that Bill Muir was really happy with Baldwins performance so far.. who knows.)

    Houston is going to catch flack from the media until he proves his worth. With the whole failed drug test at the combine, and his slide at the draft he has a steep hill to climb to get the media off his back.

    I think we shouldn't read much into that until we see his play on the field.

    What I can't figure, and Houston's only one example of this, is when these guys coming out of college have a shot to get into the NFL, and they either:

    a. Allow themselves to get out of shape- damaging their chances.
    b. Go nuts, smoke weed, act like fools, and damage their chances.

    I don't know much about Justin Houston as a guy, but if you get drafted by an NFL team, and you *know* because of everyone saying it that it's going to be rough to transition- wouldn't you step up your game? I mean, we're talking about potential for millions of dollars for earning.

    I hope for the best for him- he seems like a very talented linebacker.

    I certainly agree with you josh1971....

    But....From your profile, I have to assume you are at the very least in your early 40's. So you have been around. Probably been kicked around a bit too. A little older. A little wiser.

    Now imagine you're a young kid....late teens early 20s. Probably from a blue collar background (at best).

    Football was a way to afford college and while you certainly dreamed of the NFL (didn't we all?) you never really thought too seriously about it (except while you were partying as a freshman or sophomore)

    And then in your junior and senior year people start seriously talking NFL and then the agents are calling you and whispering those magic words...."Multimillion dollar contract".

    Remembering just what a dumb SOB I was in my late teens and early 20s I don't have a hard time seeing how some of these kids do really stupid stuff.

    Houston has proved that maybe he is perhaps a little more young dumb and full of cum than some of them, but now it is up to Haley and the Veterans to smarten him up quick.

    What separates the men from the boys is which ones that arrive at training camp and say "HOLY SHIP!!!! This is a gift from God! I better get smart and take advantage of it!"

    Those are the ones we want.

    The high draft picks are all entitled to a "pass" for being "young, dumb and full of cum"....right up until they report for training camp. It's how they act from then on that really matters.

    I think Haley and our veterans will smarten him up pretty quick. We've got good coaching staff and a good mix of vets and young guys and IMO that's what really decides how the rookie kids turn out.

    Excellent response, Ctchiefsfan.

    I too agree with you.

    But I do realize how easy it would be to fall into a position like that.

    Early twenties, maybe you swear off of all drugs, knowing how it can affect your future. But do you completely swear off of all social activities?

    Some will feel like quitting all drugs and getting to bed early would do the trick. But, if you are at a small party, and Mary Jane is there too, she can leave a mark on your blood. (It's a thirty day stain.)

    Or, if you allow yourself to have a few drinks, even just once, then we all know that alcohol lowers one's inhibitions. And the result could be making alcoholo-based decisions.

    Hard to believe that someone would gamble a million dollar career on something like that.

    But alcohol, which most would agree is ok, encourages people to do really stupid things.

    That......

    Or he just got real stupid.

    Seems like this is all speculation to me.

    Yep. Nothing wrong with speculating, if you ask me.
