    Question Rumor about Edge coming to KC

    Just read another rumor about James coming to KC. At least these are something about the Chiefs.

    Chiefs looking at Edge

    Posted: 05/05/09 11:29 am The Main Line...Edgerrin James played last season for Todd Haley while they both were in Arizona, but a reunion could be coming in Kansas City. ESPN is reporting that the Chiefs are looking at the possibility of adding James to their mix now that he's been released by the Cardinals.
    jesse thinks...
    The team was openly flirting with the option of cutting Larry Johnsnon few months back, and this could possibly give them a replacement if that's still the plan. Still, moving from LJ to Edge would be a downgrade for the offense, so I think Haley will consider this cautiously before moving ahead. I could also see James being added to pair with LJ, which would likely signal the end of Kolby Smith's run in KC.

    There's a few things that would be interesting about this move, and although I bashed the idea of it before, I do see how it makes sense.

    Edge is much more complete back in the passing game than LJ, especially when it comes to pass blocking. Haley's offense is likely to revolve around the pass, meaning LJ isn't an ideal fit being that he's very good in the running game, very poor in the passing game.

    Then of course there's the money situation. If we can dump LJ's contract, Edge can probably be acquired much cheaper. But with free agency ending, what would we do with the cash.

    The obvious problem is that Edge has a ton of mileage on those legs and hasn't had over 3.9 YPC since 2005. Was it a result of poor blocking, or age? Who knows.

    There's also a possibility that we end up with both. LJ, Edge, and Charles? That could be pretty nasty if Haley is able to work all 3 into the offense.

    Edge as a backup to LJ is not a terrible idea. We'd get him cheap, and he is a better back than Kolby Smith. Charles would probably be our 3rd down RB. I don't see the downside here.

    I think the Saints are the main team looking at him right now.

    No with James! The only thing I can see as a positive with this is that James would be able to give leadership training to LJ and a bottle of ACT RIGHT PILLS!

    Doesn't much matter to me as long as the team wins.
