King Carl still has to get them signed & into camp soon enough that they can contribute.

I'll be shocked if we don't have them signed before camp this season. If you are going to build through the draft.. a good thing IMO... you can not afford to not get the players into camp.

It's not all Carl -that does hurt to say
players sign when those drafted around them sign
the agent is the other half

Someone still has to sign first in each area. I can't see us building through the draft... and then not signing the guys.

what was Bowe #18 he was couple weeks late to camp
and really wasn't that impressive when there
but turned it on in season

Wasn't the Bowe deal held up because Brady Quinn took so long to sign a contract?

But we didn't use the rebuilding word until December or so... remember. ;)

well at least the #1 pick is signed and everything already. That might help speed up the process. Carl's never had to deal with signing 2 first round picks in his life though

What scares me more than getting the players signed is the need to hit home runs with the picks we have.

Given the body of work the Chiefs have had + or - Peterson ... I am not overly anticipating home runs personally.

This is very true. If we're going to rely on rookies we must get them signed early. If they want an extra $69 on their contract, Carl has to give it to them.
