Two more rookies on their way to camp

By ELIZABETH MERRILL and ADAM TEICHER


RIVER FALLS, Wis. — The final wave of rookies started filtering in late Friday as Craphonso Thorpe and Khari Long made plans to fly to training camp.

The last holdout may not be far behind.

Derrick Johnson was absent again for the second day of the Chiefs’ training camp, but his agent, Vann McElroy, said the sides have been getting closer to a possible deal over the past couple of days.

McElroy again declined to give a timetable on how long it would take to get Johnson, a Butkus Award-winning linebacker, to camp.

“I’m optimistic,” McElroy said. “We want him in there, and he wants to be there. At the same time, when you’re signing for five years, it’s a long time and let’s get it right.”

Thorpe, a fourth-round wide receiver, has agreed to terms of a three-year deal and will be at practice Saturday, his agent, Matt Couloute said. Long, a sixth-round defensive end, also is expected in River Falls for Saturday’s workouts.

First thing when Thorpe gets to camp they should tape him to the goalpost.

He'd probably re-injure his knee trying to get out.

Vann McElroy is obviously lying.

Rhonda Moss said they are "far apart" on terms.

Rhonda Moss needs to eat another Burger. That way we don't have to hear her.
