How can you not like trading an old Priest for a young Barry Sanders?

If they're looking at Dee Brown, they must have sero confidence in Mckenzi Smith.

Smith looked better in preseason, but Brown ran the ball hard too.

I'd prefer EITHER of those over Barry Griffin, I mean.. Quentin Sanders.

Good thing we let Blaylock go. He sure sucked.How much money can they spend on a third string RB?

Given that he was a key special teams contributor as well, Bob Dole would suppose we could have afforded the $600k he's making with the Jets this season.

Next year we need to sit Priest for the first 8 games, and then activate him for the last 8. hehe..this sucks

Yeah, but would LJ be the man now if we hadn't. Sure he'd make yet another good backup, but would we have found out about larry.

So Ronnie Cruz isn't an option.....
Just leave him behind Richardson

Fox Sports says we already signed Dee Brown, and could promote McKenzie Smith, even though the sayd Denver.

Chiefs running back Priest Holmes is not retiring, but he won't play football again this season.

Sources have told FOXSports.com that the team will place Holmes on injured reserve later Wednesday, ending his season as a result of a bruise in his spinal canal.

The team signed former Panthers running back Dee Brown to help fill the void and also worked out former Broncos running back Quentin Griffin. Denver also has practice squad running back McKenzi Smith to possibly promote.

There was a report that Holmes would retire as early as Wednesday, but team officials insist that notion is false. Instead, team doctors will re-evaluate Holmes in 30 days and take a plan of attack after that.

Holmes, 32, a three-time Pro Bowler whose 66 touchdowns between 2002-2004 are an NFL record for any three-year span, was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit against San Diego on Oct. 30.

He missed last week's game against Oakland and in the past two weeks has seen spinal-injury specialists in California and Florida.

Injuries have caused Holmes to cut short two of his last three seasons. But he has shown flashes of his old self while rushing for 451 yards and six touchdowns on 119 carries. He also has 21 catches for 197 yards, including a 60-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown in a victory over Washington on Oct. 16

He also tore up his knee or achilles or something.

We should have drafted Matt Jones. We'd already have our 3rd string QB, a starting WR and a backup RB.
