Yes, they were denied admission to the Peyton chase. But letís not forget that, despite all the dysfunction and key injuries of 2011, the Chiefs werenít far away from winning the weakest division in the NFL.
Unlike most teams, the Chiefs found bargains even before the market softened, adding running back Peyton Hillis to a one-year, fire-under-butt-lighting $2.6 million contract, tight end Kevin Boss for three years and $9 million, right tackle Eric Winston, and backup quarterback Brady Quinn.
Hillis and Quinn played for offensive coordinator Brian Daboll in Cleveland, adding some familiarity to the new Romeo Crennel regime. Winston addresses a key area of need, and Boss gives the Chiefs a second pass-catching tight end, which apparently is now a mandatory requirement for any team that hopes to be highly successful in the passing game.
Next up, donít be surprised if Crennel lures another former Brown to Kansas City, with linebacker Kamerion Wimbley on the market."
