[Denver Post] Bill Williamson is reporting that running back Quentin Griffin is expected to sign with Kansas City today. Griffin, formerly a starting tailback with Denver, was cut twice by the Broncos in 2005. The fourth-round pick in 2003 did not finish the 2005 season with a team. He's expected to vie for a backup role in Kansas City behind Larry Johnson.

We have already met our quota of midgets with Dante.

I guess confidence in Priest, R.Cruz is low for a good
backup with LJ running angry all the time.

This is interestingly odd. Have to wonder if Herm is trying to get some inside info on Denver.

My question is... does he think he can possibly make the # 2 back (IN FRONT OF PRIEST)...

It all depends on what Holmes health really is. There will be doubts on him until he actually starts practicing with the team.

Not to mention, Priest isn't going anywhere, he gets paid this to be a backup.

Holmes, Priest RB
2006 670,000
2007 870,000
2008 1,070,000
2009 1,270,000

I wouldn't give him a ton of carries, but I think he could play a Derrick Blaylock type role. I was surprised we didn't sign him last season after Priest went down.

I thought last year we'd sign him JUST for the insider information on Denver.

He's a quality backup IMO. He made us look stupid a couple seasons ago.

That was the career day defense, by the way.

just an insurance policy for the health of priest holmes. :shrug:

if holmes retires or can't practice immediately then Griffin is a cheap 3rd down back.

If we sign him practice will be fun for the defense. Q is the warm knife to our defenses butter.

CHIEFS AGREE TO TERMS WITH RB QUENTIN GRIFFIN
Mar 17, 2006, 3:00:00 PM


Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Friday that the club has agreed to terms of a one-year contract with RB Quentin Griffin. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.

Griffin (5-7, 195) joins the Chiefs after spending the first two seasons (2003-04) of his NFL career with Denver. He went to training camp with the Broncos in 2005, but was released prior to the regular season. He played in 16 games (five starts) for the Broncos, rushing 179 times for 656 yards (3.7 avg.) with two TDs and catching 18 passes for 129 yards (7.2 avg.) with a TD. Griffin also played in one playoff game for Denver, carrying the ball six times for 60 yards and adding two receptions for 18 yards. He originally entered the NFL as the first of Denver’s three fourth-round picks (108th overall) in 2003.

A three-year starter at the University of Oklahoma, Griffin rushed 702 times for 3,756 yards (5.4 avg.) with 44 touchdowns for the Sooners. He ended his collegiate career ranked fourth in Sooners history in rushing yards and second in rushing attempts. Griffin’s 44 rushing touchdowns ranked third all-time in Oklahoma history. The Aldine, Texas native was a prep teammate of current Chiefs WR Dante Hall at Nimitz High School in Houston, Texas.

Sounds like he is either camp fodder or competition for Dee Brown.

No, he signed a deal with us because he wanted to enter Canton a Chief.
