Just saw on NFL network that Kyle Turley is close to signing with the Chiefs as a ....Tight End! He's only 265 right now and they want to play him at tight end until he beefs up a little. Thoughts?

I call B.S. TRich wanted to leave. We didn't let him go. He had his mind made up.

So, is Turley going to try playing tackle, cause I heard he was just gonna stick to being a tight end.

Our beat reporter placed him at Arrowhead last week. Said he's slimmed way down and was really muscular. I really don't see him making the team as a TE.

Really, Zach doesn't know a hell of a lot about it.

Zach isn't our beat reporter. We have an actual beat reporter - goes by "Mike Campbell". He's pretty sharp too.

Has he gotten smaller than TE size? Seems like that would be a huge dropoff in weight for a former tackle.

No, he's still a pretty large TE.

DENVER (May 23, 2006) -- When owners, general managers and executives from 32 NFL teams assemble in one area, ideas and information begin flying.

For two days, they have been flying around in mile-high air.

•Look for the Kansas City Chiefs to soon reach agreement with former first-round pick Kyle Turley, who recently went to a Miami Dolphins minicamp. After sitting out football for one year, Turley's back is feeling considerably better, and he is expected to play tight end in Kansas City. But the Chiefs also plan to remain open to the idea to switching Turley back to offensive tackle if and when he can add weight to his current 260-pound frame.

Why not, I guess. Let him get some light work, maybe use him in the road-grater sets. If his health holds up, maybe by next year he could add some bulk and become more useful.

Despite being smaller, he still has the experience of playing on the offensive line in the league and seems like someone you could use on 2 or 3 plays from scrimmage a game. We have kept people active on gamedays who don't even contribute that many times.

Lets strip it down to what we got. We have a guy coming off a very serious injury who has taken a whole year off in order to get better. He has dropped a lot of weight, but has more than sufficient size for his new position and still has the skill of a Pro Bowl blocker (that doesn't go away). I fail to see where the problem is.

I have a feeling this offseason will be spent with Dunn lining up in the backfield moreso than usual. Even if it isn't, and even if the only thing he ends up being good for is goal line situations, I can tell you right now having a former Pro Bowl blocker as the tight end on the weak side (if you can call it that) sounds nothing but good to me.

Exacty. At worst he is higher profile training camp fodder. Pretty good upside with little risk.

Sounds like a low risk bet. A little strange: Gonzo, Dunn, Wilson, Turley. 4 TE set anyone? :) What's Dunn going to think about this?

I don't see those 4 at TE with a rookie FB in the backfield. Though I could be very wrong. Maybe they'll try some sort of formation with a single back and 4 TEs. If it was last year, I'd actually guarantee Saunders would try it.

I hear that Al has Joe Gibbs lining up as the Skins' new "factor back." :p

I wholeheartedly believe you :) . He'll probably have him run a reverse, too!

Geez the Chiefs must see something we don't or he cheap and the contract is so one sided......

Could be a career resurgence story in the future.....

If Turley is/wants to be back in FB...I didn't see that with Rams. could be the injury.

I do not see a real downside here. He is cuttable if things do not work out and he brings some experience to the team.

You gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

I would be stunned if he plays a single down as TE in a real game.

Not outraged by this move.

I said it a month ago when they first started looking. This is a GREAT move.

At worst, you cut him and lose nothing. At best, he's healthy and can add weight...can you imagine him lining up at RT with the rest of our hogs?

I see no downside.

He's a TE project, with devestating run block ability, a nasty attitude on the line.....and either PS or TC fodder if it doesn't work out.

I don't know about his neck and the injury situation, but If he did sign as a cheap TE and was healthy enough to play Oline again...and put on some weight.....Thats a nice Right side Bookend.

There's only one real negative that I can see with this.... he's a certifiable headcase.

The guy is ****ed up in the head. I don't know if it will surface, but it could mess with chemistry.

If that's the guy I'm thinking of, the fiance and I met him in Rivr Falls last summer and talked with him a few times. Hell of a nice guy.
