CHIEFS AGREE TO TERMS OF 5-YEAR CONTRACT WITH UFA S SAMMY KNIGHT
Mar 11, 2005, 9:03:56 AM

Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Friday that the club has agreed to terms of a five-year contract with unrestricted free agent S Sammy Knight. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.

“Sammy brings a great deal of experience to our defense,” Peterson commented. “He’s an eight-year veteran and has performed at a high level over that span. Bill Kuharich, our Vice President of Pro Personnel, was instrumental in the acquisition of Sammy, a player he has known since signing him as a rookie free agent with New Orleans in ‘97. We went into free agency wanting to acquire a linebacker, safety and a corner. We have two of those positions right now.”

Knight (6-0, 215) has appeared in 126 games (121 starts), including a streak 108 consecutive games played and 96 straight starts. A Pro Bowl performer for the Saints in 2001, Knight has recorded 862 tackles (587 solo), 5.0 sacks (-26.0 yards), 74 passes defensed, 11 fumble recoveries and 10 forced fumbles during his previous eight NFL campaigns. Since entering the league in ‘97, he has intercepted 35 passes for 594 yards with four returns for touchdowns. Those 35 INTs are the second-highest total in the league over the past eight seasons, trailing only S Darren Sharper (36). Knight has also started two playoff games, registering nine tackles, four passes defensed and two interceptions for the Saints in 2000.

Knight has played both strong and free safety during his NFL tenure and has registered six consecutive seasons with 100+ tackles, including 127 stops (74 solo) for the Dolphins in 2004. He also tied for the team lead in Miami last season with four interceptions (32 yards) to go with five passes defensed, one fumble recovery and three forced fumbles.

This is a good move, but it's worth nothing unless we get Surtain, IMO

It was effectively a 3 yr contract, with an option in years 4 and 5 if he performs.

Why the hell does Carl want Priest Holmes? He did shit on the 2000 Ravens SB team. Why not look at a guy who has had some RECENT success like Charlie Garner?

I think everyone is underestimating the value of that Dan Saleamua signing.

I think we should trade for Joe Montana.
But don't even bother bringing Ronnie Lott into camp, he's done.

Lamar Hunt is a dumbass. The AFL will never be able to compete with the NFL.
