    Cool TE John Carlson

    TE John Carlson has a visit set with the Chiefs - tweeted by NFL Insider Jason La Confora.

    Had great numbers his first two seasons before numbers dropped off in 2010 and then missed all of 2011 due to shoulder surgery

    '08: 55 REC, 627 YDS, 5 TD
    '09: 51 REC, 574 YDS, 7 TD
    '10: 31 REC, 318 YDS, 1 TD

    Would be great 2nd option at TE to run two TE sets and team wouldn't miss a beat in case of another Moeaki injury.

    I thought he was hurt in the preseason last year, so it would only be 1 year that he would have been out.

    He played in all but one game of the 2010 season and had a great game in the playoffs that season

    you're absolutely right. The guy played all 16 games in 2008, 2009, and 15 games in 2010. I would have to say NO, he is NOT injury prone!

    As is Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Jamaal Charles, Brandon Flowers (he had the same injury as Carlson, he just had it at the end of the season and decided to wait until post season to have surgery), Eric Berry, etc, etc.

    I can list many other people who had one injury that put them out for a whole season, who are NOT considered "injury prone."

    That having been said, I would take him as competition/2nd string to a healthy Moeaki.

    A guy who has started that many games prior gets hurt and he's injury prone?
    His injury that kept him out was a shoulder injury(preseason). He has had a concussion(who hasn't in this game)

    I guess time will tell whether or not he's fine. He has had an entire year to rehab.

    I'm more concerned with the Chiefs not going after players that are more of a priority. The race is on for free agents and we're focusing on a tight end. WHY?
