I hope this isn't a case of EWI borrowing a pair of Gun's rose-colored glasses. Our secondary is going to need all the help it can get.

Warfield may still face suspension

By ADAM TEICHER The Kansas City Star


Chiefs cornerback Eric Warfield faces a possible suspension of as many as four games under the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Warfield pleaded no contest in January to driving under the influence of alcohol. The incident happened in Overland Park and was the third time in three years Warfield was charged with DUI in Johnson County.

But Warfield said Tuesday he was advised by his attorney Kevin Regan and agent Craig Domann that he may avoid the suspension.

“It's my understanding from what I hear there will not be a suspension,” Warfield said. “But (NFL commissioner) Paul Tagliabue is the man, and he has the power to overturn that decision if he wants to. Everyone is looking into the situation and trying to figure out what's going to happen. From what I understand, nothing might transpire until the summer.”

Warfield was sentenced in March to 10 days of jail, which he already served, followed by 80 days of house arrest, for the latest incident.

“If I get into anything (else), I will definitely be suspended,” he said. “Hopefully, when I'm done with this house-arrest deal, I've gotten all this stuff behind me and I can just move on with my football career and my life.”

• GAMMON DEAL ANNOUNCED: As reported in The Star last week, the Chiefs announced Tuesday that the club has agreed to terms of a one-year deal with long snapper Kendall Gammon. No other terms of the agreement were made available.

Gammon has appeared in every game of his professional career, a string of 208 consecutive games over 13 seasons, the longest active streak in the league among non-kickers. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl after

It would be nice if we could have him. but i doubt Tagliabue would allow him not to be suspended, Paul is pretty strict when it comes to policies and players breaking the law. I really wish Warfield wasn't such a drunk, man i think his game would improve 100% . he has what it takes to be the no. 2 CB if he would put the bottle down.

hell now that i think about it last year he could have been drunk every game and still been our best defensive back.

Hell, just got to pg 2 & realized this is a repost. Sorry.

Ya know, the Chiefs were pretty much shot down on every issue they raised at the NFL owners' meetings in HA. Maybe, they'll throw us a bone. I can't even begin to imagine the horror of either Bartee or McNugget starting the first four games.

I have this horrific image in my mind of Bartee trying to cover Randy Moss man to man.
