Chiefs | Chiefs may consider Allen

Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reporting for the Sporting News, reports the Kansas City Chiefs plan to shop for up-and-coming young players rather than high-priced veterans. They probably will begin their search at defensive tackle, where the Green Bay Packers DL Kenderick Allen would be a good fit.

Chiefs | Curtis could help Chiefs

Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reporting for the Sporting News, reports the Kansas City Chiefs are extremely thin at wide receiver, so it would make sense to go after St. Louis Rams WR Kevin Curtis.

Kevin Curtis would be a great addition to this team. Super fast and tough as nails.

And he already knows Sammy Knight.

He can be mentally retarted and still be an upgrade over Ryan Sims...

I just hope they go young...we don't need another dude at the end of his career.

I wouldn't mind having Curtis but he will go where ever the money is. I hope to god we don't pay out the ass for him. He's really the only reliable WR on the market.

I would love to have Ian Scott. Jump on that shit Carl.

Right on.

That's why I'm hoping we don't mess around too much in FA not getting the return on our $$$ and just focus on building though the draft.

Gotta draft well and play younger guys.

Hey, I am curious, what do you like about him specifically? I notice his stats don't really impress me; although I know stats don't always tell the tale though...?

Curtis would be a solid addition as would Ian Scott.

To merely see the Chiefs get a little creative and try to improve the team would be enough for me.

My brother is a Bears' fan so he helped me. He has huge motor, really good on the run stop and his pass rush is average. He was a backup and they mostly used him when the Bears went into the 4-6 or anticipated the run. I would agree, it would be huge upgrade and a nice pickup for the Chiefs.

I like to see Scott in a Chiefs uniform, Coleman wouldn't be bad either. The Chiefs need to look at every available DT under 30; surely they can find 1 or 2 that can actually play.

Nothing against Curtis but the Chiefs signing him would just be another 'put butts in the seats' move.

This team needs to cut deadwood and get young. The easiest and cheapest way to do that is the draft. Frankly I'll be disappointed if the Chiefs sign any FAs except some of their own.

Anyone else think it's funny that Adam Teicher is reporting that he thinks something makes sense? Great job, Ace Reporter!

That's my problem with this kind of "reporting." He may have team sources that told him the Chiefs' strategy, but everything else looks like pure speculation on his part, which involves nothing more than looking at other teams' rosters and figuring out who is "young and up-and-coming" at a KC position of need. Hell, 95% of us could do that.

It doesn't mean shit unless he's got sources that tell him those are guys the Chiefs are actually looking at.

I want to get young as well but I think you can also do that by signing young FAs. It is impossible to fill all the holes on this roster just through the draft. Lets say the Chiefs get lucky and land 3 starters with the first 3 picks that still leaves a bunch of positions that need help.

This team not only needs starters at alot of positions but also needs a serious upgrade of more talented depth. Just look at the DT position. Right the Chiefs have zero bodies. Reed, Wilkerson, and Edwards are FA and Sims will be cut. No way the Chiefs get 5 DTs through the draft.

<i>I think you can also do that by signing young FAs.</i>

Young FA's also are typically expensive. If they aren't expensive then they're busts you probably don't want anyway. There's no reason to pay out the butt for a stud DT if he's surrounded by garbage. By the time you give him teammates he's onto his next FA contract.

Yes if we could get 3 starters in the draft it would be great but still leave tons of holes. However rebuilding this team won't be a one or two year process. We have to think longterm. There's a reason the Pats have won 3 SBs and the Colts have one of the best regular season winning %s. They think longterm.

Huge news-NOT-like every team does not want to sign the next big thing for next to nothing.

Lame.

I guess I fall into the same trap that Carl does. I want to get young and build through the draft but at the end of the day I want a winning team every year; I really don't want to go 4-12 even though it means a better pick.

I struggle at thinking longterm.

Adam Teicher is well known for knowing even less about the Chiefs than usual during the off season. I can remember interviews with him where he hadn't heard some basic news about the team and he defended himself by saying that he lived in San Diego and hadn't talked to anyone in KC. He then went on to talk about baseball.

Coleman is a great person, I've met him (we went to the same church and both worked with the high school group) he would be good for the team as a positive role model instantly.

He is definetly not being used to his full potential in Dallas, but isn't he a big Run DE? like Hicks? I know Dallas uses the 3-4 so that messes up where he lines up anyway, but in college and with Oakland I thought he was a DE in a 4-3 defense.


BTW, when I first met him I was wearing a chiefs hat. When he shook my hand, he keep looking at it (that's when I realized what I had on) so I said the quick appology, but that they were my AFC team and I didn't have anything against the cowboys. You know, stupid stuff like that. So, anyway, he said he knew Tony G and would play for the chiefs if they wanted him.

The Chiefs seem to be going for bigger receivers under Herm. I'm not sure Curtis fits what they are looking for.
