I've heard he's good, but might not be compatible with some teammates. I'm sure this has been talked about in other threads that I haven't read. Just wondering what the general Chiefs fan thoughts on the subject are.

He's a frick'n pro-bowl Tackle - former first rounder costing us next to nothing against the cap, while our starting LT of the past 3 years is talking about how he's retired and his body can't take it any longer.... of course we want him.

Wasn't he injured, though? How long has it been since he's played?

I found an article on foxsports saying that his playing style on the field was mean and crazy, but that he is very charitable off the field. Sounds like a good mix to me.

You mean as opposed to if Roaf comes back?

Hmmm, that's something I hadn't really thought about...

He has been healing from a back injury and has not played in 2 years.

BUT, rumors from camp say that his foot and hand work has been impeccable and that once he is around the 290 mark, he will be back to his old self.

I big problem comes in replacing a future Hall-of-Famer Those are too big of shoes to fill without seeing some sort of repercussions.

Sorry I misunderstood you before. He is a big question mark who is slowly turning it into an exclamation point. Of course, durability is going to be a huge factor no matter how well he does this year...

Kyle Turley is about to make a return to the NFL from a two-year hiatus.

FOXSports.com has learned that the former Saints and Rams tackle has agreed in principle to a two-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. The contract has yet to be signed but the team expects Turley to arrive at the Chiefs complex on Monday to sign the deal and complete a physical. Turley recently tried out for the Dolphins as a tight end but agreed to play tackle with the Chiefs, although they could work him in at TE in some cases as well.
Turley started every game but one from 1998-2003, but a back injury sidelined him after the 2003 season and Turley has not played since.

If he wins the starting right tackle job then both of the Chiefs' starting tackles would be former Saints first-round picks under former New Orleans team president Billy Kuharich, now the Chiefs VP of Player Personnel.

Turley's persona on the football field is one of a mean, angry and sometimes crazy player. Off the field, however, he is one of the NFL's most charitable players. He helped raise considerable funds in the wake of 9/11 and then last year after Hurricane Katrina drove down to New Orleans to help out and even offered to take a truck to Saints players homes, load them up, and drive their belongings to San Antonio. Turley also helped raise a considerable sum of money to help the victims of this disaster.

Turley had reportedly dropped 50 pounds from his playing weight at tackle when he tried out at tight end. It's unclear what his weight currently stands at

Would we play him at tackle or tight end?

He tried out at TE with the Dolphins before he put on more weight. It is defintily looking like he will play tackle now.

Tackle.

That whole TE experiment is done.

No one was buying at TE.

He's currently taking first team snaps at LT. Barring Roaf's return and a complete relapse of the back injury he'll be starting there come opening weekend.

That's pretty much it, sans the "Two New Orleans tackles now starting for KC."

He's good, make no mistake about it. Let his ability never be questioned. The only questions there should be are how quickly he will return to his former skill level and whether or not he will hold up to injury.

Yeah that pretty much describes him. He seems like a really great guy to have around with his intensity. The stuff with Martz happend around the time his body was breaking down and Martz is known to be a bit of a bitch at times.

I'm still unfamiliar with players outside the Chiefs (hell, within the Chiefs) organization. The guy I was talking to at work sounded unsure of the choice. Of course, I come here for expert opinion and analysis.

He's shrouded with uncertainty. Your coworker was correct, though the last few days of training camp have been quite reassuring.

If you check out some of the "What I've seen at training camp" threads, they'll talk about him seeming to do a sufficient job. Like I said earlier he's slowly turning that question mark into an exclamation point. But any time you're replacing a future hall-of-fame offensive tackle, you're gonna have a lot to live up to.

Nah, cut him. Rich Scanlon is our LTOTF and even now in the present he's better than Willie Roaf ever was.

Hey guys, do you think Trent [I think it's Greenstein, or Grenier, or something] should be the starting QB?
I heard he's like old or something.
What do you think?

I still think Roaf is coming back and the only reason he retired is so that he wouldnt have to pay the fines for not coming to camp because he really hates training camp. Thanks DV.

Posts like this are the reason I don't post on football threads. Yet, I catch shit whenever I don't. I think I'll just let you continue to make fun of me. At least I'm trying to learn.

It's pretty much a given that he'll become a team cancer eventually. Not many players get a 3rd chance (maybe TO) after publicly embarrassing two different head coaches to the point where they would do anything to be rid of him.

Hopefully Svitek will be ready when needed.

For now give him the benefit of doubt.

In Turley's words.... No Shit

I apologize for hurting your feelings.
But c'mon. I can't show restraint forever.
You didn't know if Shields was playing anymore.
You didn't know the chronology of Roaf's retirement situation.
You don't know anything about Turley.
All of these things have been discussed ad infinitum here and elsewhere.
I might no malice. I intended only good-natured ribbing. And as I said, I apologize if your feelings were hurt.
But if you're going to continue to post questions of such a basic nature, thinken that skin just a little.

He tried to kill Mike Martz, so hes OK in my book. Maybe if Herm screws up, Turley can take care of him.

I hadn't seen anything about Shields posted. Whenever I saw all of the threads on Roaf retiring, I remembered that there was, at one time, talk about the what-if's if we lost both of them. So I thought I'd inquire.

After reading several threads about Roaf's retirement/non-retirement, I admit I was a little confused (I'm just some chick, what do you expect).

I did a search on Turely on here, and saw a few things, but not necessarily what I was wondering about. I had heard that he'd had problems with a few other coaches, so I was wondering how people thought he would mesh with our organization.

While I do need to thicken my skin a little more, I have come along way from when I first started posting. In this particular case, however, my feelings weren't hurt. I was annoyed. I'm guessing I annoy you with my stupid, ignorant questions, so I realize you're just returning the favor. No harm done.
