View Full Version : I would not get rid of Bell

and this is my reasoning. Despite what the coaches say, he has been hurt the whole season. He's only been in the league three seasons and was able to play just two of them so he's still very young and learning. I think he's done what Gun has wanted but why he wasn't turned loose to destroy I don't knoiw. Bell was a killer in Pitt and will be again.

That cap hit next year will be hard to swallow.

I would love Bell to come back and be a monster, but only if he reworks his deal. If he wants big cash I'd rather take Fox.

I think he's just playing out of position. But for the rise of Kawika Mitchell I think he might have been effective.

If we ran a 3-4 that might be a nice combo.

Much like Priest, you can't justify giving so much money to a player who can't stay on the field.

bothers me that he seems to be avoiding extending his arms when tackling.


his shoulder is still hurt or he's afraid to get hurt again.

cap hits like Shields PH and Roaf are hard to swallow but

Bell's not really. Barber should be cut and i think Bell will stay at least 1 more year.

Bell has done absolutely nothing to warrant a $2.7 million dollar salary next season.

Bell's done more than Barber, IMO. Plus, If Woods can ride the pine with the kind of jack he's making, I don't see Bell's contract numbers out of line, in the least. Let's get rid of the those riding the pine with big salaries before getting rid of starters. Sound like a plan?

we can save much cutting expensive "backups" like Woods Bartee or MCCleon and Barber who are making millions without doing anything no need to get rid of Bell now.

If barber can get back to 100% and can rip Heads off better than Bell (see Rich Gannon)... I say keep Barber over Bell....

This is from the Tiecher article posted on page 2...

Everything can change quickly with the hiring of a new head coach. The Chiefs, for instance, may decide to whack underachieving players like linebacker Kendrell Bell. Signed as a free agent last year, Bell is only seventh on the Chiefs in tackles.

He is due a roster bonus of more than $3.5 million next year and his salary jumps from a manageable $540,000 to about $2.7 million.

Seems kind of expensive to me! :shrug:

Barber would make 2.75 million next year almost no difference.

Woods 1.6
Mc Cleon 2.0
Bartee 1.1

I'd like to see him get another shot next year.

There's a million players who didn't look good their first year in a new system only to dominate thier 2nd and 3rd years.

If however Gun is going to keep using him in zone coverage instead of gearing twoards his strengths then it probably would be better to let him go and free up the cap space.

Wow... this board sure has a short memory.

Bell has one game with ok stats and all of a sudden he's worth a 3.5mil bonus AND a 2.7 mil salary next year...... Get a grip!

And people on this board have the balls to say that Carl doesn't have a clue...
