Wow. They have a lot of beef on the interior with him and Kevin Williams.

Wow, the defensive FA's are going fast.

Hayward, Ferguson, Gold, Coakley, Kennedy, Williams, Henry, etc.

Trotter, Hartwell, Rolle, Law, Smoot, Bell, etc. :)

Also interesting that a lot of players are signing with the first team they visit this year.

That bodes well for the Chiefs if they do have Trotter, Rolle, and someone else here for their first visit.

More happiness over at the Mane considering they need to improve their D-line... ROFL

Nice job Shanny. 2 DTs worth their salt out there, and you couldn't get one to come to Denver for a visit. But hey, you got Gold so you're a badass. There are other positions besides RB and LB on a football team Mastermind.

Just ****ing great.

Does this mean that Gerard Warren was Sundquists "plan" for the D-line.

Jesus tap dancing Christ.

Yeah but something tells me all 3 will leave KC without contracts signed. I hope I am wrong.

Yes, but in 2003 season where him and Sam Adams I think, they were OK, but remember that one game where he shot his mouth, saying that Priest Holmes won't get 100 yards rushing?

Man, we killed them in that game. Good times.

Yeah, you gotta think that most of these deals were set up in Indy the past few days.

I can understand your reasoning, but there are alot of reports swirling around that most of them will be announced tommorrow, just not sure which team....

Yeah, they are reporting that Rolle will have a deal done by Thursday, but didnt say which team.

I dont know who else has contacted Samari, I dont think he's been to any other city, either.

The reports concerning him and the Redskins were false, so as far as I know, KC is the only place where he has come to visit for a meeting. Of course, its not impossible for aplayer to sign without going for a meeting with the team, so who knows what could happen.

I have a feeling though that Gunther pushed hard for him, due to seeing him up close and personal when he was with the Titans himself, and we will get Samari in here on this defense.

Well I think if we do get Rolle that still leaves room to get Surtain too. As opposed to getting Law and Surtain.

Preferably I would take Surtain over any of them but that's just me.

Surtain is awesome. Probably the best CB available to the Chiefs. Only second to a "healthy" Ty Law. He wants big bank though probably, and the Chiefs could be waiting to make sure that they can address the other needs on the D before committing that much cash AND a second round pick to getting him.

It would be awesome if they landed both Rolle and Surtain.

How about this??? We sign Trotter\Hartwell, Rolle and Surtain.

Then trade Surtain in the draft to move up and get Johnson??? Just an idea.

I agree the more I think about it the more you are right. Gonna be hard to get Rolle AND Surtain AND Trotter\Hartwell.
