    I think it would be a good signing. We badly need another consistant WR.

    Looks like ESPN is reporting the Chiefs are close to a deal with Toomer:


    Sources: Chiefs may sign Toomer

    August 3, 2009 10:25 PM

    Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

    The Kansas City Chiefs are leaning toward signing veteran receiver Amani Toomer, according to two NFL sources.
    Toomer could be signed as soon as Tuesday if the Chiefs follow through their current thinking, the sources said. Toomer was one of three veteran receivers Kansas City worked out Monday as their early training-camp work showed the team they may need more help for new quarterback Matt Cassel.
    Kansas City also looked at receivers D.J. Hackett and David Terrell. Toomer is the most accomplished of the three. Despite the fact that he will turn 35 next month, Toomer can still be productive. He had 48 catches for the Giants last season, which was his 13th with the club.
    Adding Toomer would be similar what the Chiefs are doing on defense: loading up on veteran leadership. With the core of the Kansas City roster very young, new general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Todd Haley, are adding leadership at key areas. The team has added linebackers Zach Thomas and Mike Vrabel and safety Mike Brown. All three players are known leaders.
    Earlier this offseason, the Chiefs signed veteran receiver Bobby Engram. Toomer would likely play a similar role and give Cassel another steady hand to play with. Toomer is not going to burn teams with his speed, but he will come up with some solid plays and he can help this team take the next step.
    He has a reputation as being a leader who helps young players. He has 668 career catches and a Super Bowl ring to show his young teammates if he ends up in Kansas City. He is less than two years removed from winning a Super Bowl (over Pioli's Patriots). That type of veteran experience can only help.
    If the Chiefs get this deal done, it won't make them an instant playoff contender. But it will be another positive step made by the new regime.

    Everyone's missing the big question here. Which WR is going to get cut:

    Dwayne Bowe (no)
    Bobby Engram (probably not, Pioli FA)
    Quentin Lawrence (probably not, Pioli pick)
    Terrance Copper (probably not, Pioli FA)
    Jeff Webb (probably not, as we tendered him)
    Taurus Johnson (probably not, as he'll probably be our KR/PR)
    Mark Bradley
    Devard Darling
    Rodney Wright

    Am I missing someone? If not, it's probably Bradley, Darling, or Wright. And Bradley is the only one who doesn't do special teams.

    Does Amani really have the legs anymore? Does Engram?

    From what I understand, Hackett has some speed. Amani would be an outstanding pickup for mentorship reasons but Hackett would fit in the slot.

    Given the fact that teams rarely carry more than 5 WRs on a roster, I think we have to see at least one of the Pioli picks drop to the practice squad by the time the final cuts come down. I think Lawrence, Copper, and Johnson are the most at risk, because I dont think they have done anything impressive yet in OTA's/camp.

    I agree on Copper. Wasn't he brought here to be a KR? He didn't even return kicks in practice yesterday. I think Devard Darling will get shown the door as well.
