Hakim changes his mind, spurns Chiefs


Az-Zahir Hakim’s stay in Kansas City lasted about 48 hours.

The free-agent receiver, who officially came to terms on a one-year deal Wednesday, has left the team to pursue a more lucrative offer, coach Dick Vermeil said Friday.

“I think he’s going to end up in New Orleans,” Vermeil said. “I was a little disappointed, but I understand. That’s just the nature of this game. You can’t get everything you want.”

Just two days ago, Hakim was at the Chiefs’ practice, saying he was ready to reunite with his old coach who took the Rams to the 1999 Super Bowl championship. But Hakim was gone by the start of Friday’s minicamp, and Vermeil said the Chiefs will now resume their pursuit of Freddie Mitchell.

Mitchell, a former Eagles receiver, visited the Chiefs last week.

Good. I hope this means that after he looked at our other talent he realized he wouldn't make the team. That would be a good thing.

Yes, but this is NOT good:


"and Vermeil said the Chiefs will now resume their pursuit of Freddie Mitchell"

Looking at Freddie Mitchell's stats over the last 4 seasons, I am shocked that he has never had a 100 yard game in his career. That's not good.

If Mitchell is signed, I see one of two things happening. He becomes a fan favorite and delivers good statistics with some big catches, or he is a total bust.

No biggie in my eyes. I was luke warm when he was going to sign at best, but I want nothing to do with fast mouth Fred.
