Just FYI. The Chiefs signed Woods to a 1-year contract. He will move to the Retired/Reserved list on Friday.

Friday you say? Let's see if we can trade him before then.

Retire as a Chief? Shouldn't this formality be reserved for players who accomplished something? What if I request to be signed by the Chiefs so I can retire as a Chief?

Thank God we freed up the cap space by trading Green to get this done! :)

Why? He played his entire career for us. What is wrong with this?

Sort of what I was thinking, this is like creating new just to get in the paper.

I'll be retiring as a Chief on July 3rd, 2008.

Something Green should have done the moment he woke up from his concussion. But oh well.

Thanks Jerome. You played on some shitty defenses, but for awhile you were a leader of a pretty good defense and made things exciting. Congrats.

It's kind of like how Phobia came back here so he could retire as a Planeteer.

Woods retiring as a chief makes more sense than Derrick Alexander IMO.

Well, at least this is slightly better than when Derrick Alexander signed and then retired with the Chiefs.

Derrick Alexander actually played elsewhere after leaving the Chiefs. He settled in KC so he wanted to sign and retire as a Chief. I understood that one. Wood never played anywhere else. I don't get that one.

I always like Woods, but he was never the same after the broken leg. Nice move by the organization.

He should definitely be honored.

I agree he was a pretty good player before he broke his leg sad that he will be remembered for the DV days and not for his play before that.

This board will be fun when Hicks gets the same

God forbid the team let a Pro Bowler who was a mainstay for the better part of a decade retire as a Chief.

He was cut last year, so it makes sense in a symbolic sort of way to officially end things on his terms as a member of the team.

He produced 720 tackles (487 solo), 5.0 sacks (-27.0 yards), 15 interceptions for 282 yards with two touchdowns, 49 passes defensed, 29 QB pressures, four fumble recoveries and 11 forced fumbles. He added 27 special teams stops and 25 kickoff returns for 581 yards (23.2 avg.). His 720 career tackles with the Chiefs rank seventh in team history.

Not a bad days work.

I would be OK with that. In fact, I think that would be nice. Hicks was a journeyman level DE who had one great year. On most teams he would have been a backup, on the DV era Chiefs he was a starter. He was a character guy, played to the best of his ability and gave 100%. Unfortunately, Jake Plummer was often giving 100% going in the opposite direction.

I'm fine with any ex-player wanting to retire a chief.

It seems like a positive comment on the franchise.

It's OK with me, as long as Jerome nails King Carl from the blind side as he crosses the middle....of his office.

Man, people bitch when our PR supposedly takes a hit with the veterans in the locker room and don't give credit when we do something that comes off well with the veterans in the locker room.

Good for the Chiefs.

I think this is a good thing. Anyone who wishes to retire as a Chief should be allowed to do so.

Including Carl.

Like, now.

Kind of neet Woods retiring the same year that we are starting 2 rookies the same way we did when he came in.

I've decided I don't really have a problem with it. I mean, it's a formality. It doesn't affect anything at all. I was stupid to pitch a mini-fit about it earlier.
