Mort on Espn news. Shields likely to get cut.

Clayton on Espn news. Shields is possibble to get cut along with Jerome Woods and John Welbourn.

JC said Priest has restructured and took a pay cut.

I LOVE Shields, but I think it is odd that one minute when he feels like he has the chiefs in the palm of his hand he is unsure whether he will return next year; then when he hears he may be cut, he will play for sure next year. Maybe he took the Chiefs for granted a little. If we choose not to retain him I think Carl will find that he really has taken Will for granted. He is still among the best in the game when in shape and healthy, great lockerroom leader and great in the community.

Well from reading the article the other day i get this:

His agent said he will definatly play in '06 and maybe '07. His agent also said Will might have to make a tough descision on working out a more cap friendly contract to stay.

Will seems irked that he can't just play under the contract he signed. IMO he would probably take it personally if we have to cut him.

CP says when his current deal was signed, the last year didn't mean anything and Will and his agent knew it would have to be redone because of the big cap #.

I don't expect him to publically admit it but I believe finishing his career in KC is very important to him and his family. KC is their home and they have business and many charitable interests here. I don't think he would want to potentially mess with any of that.

Hell, maybe he gets frustrated and says the hell with it and calls it quits? Who knows. Should be interesting.

I'd say the chances of the owners passing the NFLPA proposal are zero. This is just a delaying tactic by the owners to buy some time before free agency starts. I expect they'll find a way to get both sides to the table before Wednesday. Not that I think a deal will get done.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2355736

Not so fast. Since the CBA deadline have been extended, as well as the FA, here's the lastest news.

Raiders avoid cutting Collins with CBA extension
Associated Press

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders had all but parted ways with Kerry Collins on Sunday night until the NFL bought them some time to reconsider the quarterback's future with the club.

The league and union surprisingly agreed to postpone free agency until Thursday to give owners a chance to consider the union's latest proposal during a meeting Tuesday in Dallas. Talks broke off earlier in the day, leaving veterans such as Collins in danger of becoming salary-cap casualties before midnight Monday, when free agency was supposed to begin.


Without Collins, the Raiders would save $9.2 million against the salary cap once bonuses are factored into the figures.


The Raiders thought they would be forced to let Collins go after the NFL and its union broke off talks earlier in the day, failing to agree upon an elevated cap number that would have allowed teams to keep certain high-priced veterans.


The team had been waiting for word on negotiations before making a final decision on Collins' future with the organization.


The 33-year-old Collins had a 7-21 record in two years as Oakland's starter and said at the end of the season he was willing to restructure his deal but would not play for "peanuts."


New coach Art Shell said when he was hired last month that he believed Collins could be a "great" quarterback for the Raiders, but the team still had to figure out what it would do with him.


The Raiders already made moves this offseason to reduce their payroll for next season. They released defensive lineman Ted Washington, offensive lineman Ron Stone and defensive back Denard Walker last week. They also declined a $10 million option for 2006 for safety Derrick Gibson. Those moves created more than $18 million in additional cap space for 2006.


Oakland also declined to use a franchise tag on Charles Woodson, who made $10.537 million last season.


The Raiders scored only 51 points, with just six touchdowns, in their final five games and lost their last six overall and eight of nine despite an offense featuring Collins, Randy Moss, LaMont Jordan and Jerry Porter. At 4-12, they finished with one fewer victory than in fired coach Norv Turner's first season a year ago.


Perhaps the most glaring statistic is Oakland's failure to win a division game for the first time since owner Al Davis came aboard in 1963 to coach and eventually own the team. The Raiders went 1-11 against the AFC West during Turner's two seasons.


Collins started the season well, but couldn't maintain any consistency. He completed 302 passes for 3,759 yards -- his most since 2002 with the Giants -- and 20 touchdowns. He also was sacked 39 times and threw 12 interceptions.
