Sorry if this is a repost, but I saw that he is going to get a workout on Monday to see if we think he can contribute.......

"To see if he can contribute?"

We've got the Chicago fire blazing all over our offensive line. Anyone with a bucket would contribute.

Report: OT Welbourn to practice with ChiefsESPN.com news services


Offensive tackle John Welbourn, who was suspended for the six weeks of the season, will practice with the Chiefs next week, The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday. Welbourn has missed 10 games in two years for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He retired in June but later asked for reinstatement and was suspended for six games this season. After sitting out a four-game suspension at the beginning of last season for the same reason, Welbourn wound up starting nine games for Kansas City and was an important part of a 10-6 season. The lineman is eligible to return Oct. 23, and the Chiefs will have a two-week commissioner's exemption to determine his physical status, The Star reported. The Chiefs could make use of an experienced lineman. The unexpected retirement of left tackle Willie Roaf on the eve of training camp tore another hole in their offensive line, which has long been a strength. Kyle Turley, signed to compete for the right tackle spot Welbourn vacated, was quickly switched to the left side. But Turley has struggled with a back injury. Welbourn will be working under a new head coach -- Herm Edwards this year replaced the retired Dick Vermeil. There might also be a concern about Welbourn's physical shape. He missed all of training camp and has not been practicing with the team. The Chiefs hold his rights for the next three years. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Anyone would be better than Jordan Black...hell, put Dante Hall at L Tackle, he would probably do a better job!

Now that he weighs in at 185 lbs, he might have a tough time getting back into the flow of the offensive line.

hopefully he has tried to get back in shape, Sampson needs to get in some Judo or Ballet classes to teach him some balance.
