Either that or Johnny didn't want to re-sign with us.

Leap in logic. All indications are the Chiefs did want to renegotiate with him. How does this say anything different?

that could be, 2 year contract may be a part of that. But just $150,000?

$150,000 over vet min. & a two year contract does not seem like a insurmoutable amount

The Chiefs asked Morton to take a pay cut.

Morton said "I'm gay."

The rest is history.

Okay - who was the moron who bet me he would get a $4 Million signing bonus? What do you owe me?

it amazes me he'd rather play for a 1-15 team then "swallow" some pride and take one more shot with a contender....

instead he wanted to take more shots in his rear-ender.

Morton's comments at the end of last year sounded like he knew he was gone (and/or wanted to be.)

Umm, excuse me but I think Morton would have probably played for free in San Francisco.

I don't believe KC had any interest in keeping Morton for anything more than veterans minimum. I also never got the impression that Morton was happy with his role in the offense.

I believe last seasons surprise "injury" at the end of the year, ended Morton's days in Red and Gold.

I'll miss Morton giving fans a dirty look as he rides his 10 speed by them at lightning speed during TC.

Who cares, he's gone. Let's talk about somebody who matters.

I'm thinking that Morton thought he would have no problem getting a decent contract on the open market so he held out to see if he'd actually get cut or not. Then, after 3 weeks of no phone calls, he finally realized that he had better take what he could get.
