From Rotoworld...

Greg Wesley - DB Jul. 17 - 4:08 pm et

Chiefs released S Greg Wesley.

The Chiefs had basically been holding Wesley hostage until this point in the offseason. At 30, he's still got some game left in him and the Broncos showed a good deal of interest in Wesley at the trade deadline last October. Other clubs in need of safety help: St. Louis, Cincinnati, and New Orleans.

Their apparent source was PFT, so take it for what you feel it's worth.

Good for Wesley. He always played hard and gave it his all. He didn't bitch * moan throughout the ordeal.

I saw him regularly at the gym. Dude has a good work ethic. He'll make a solid veteran FA pickup for some team IMO.

I know I have shared this before, but one more time for posterity's sake.....

I had an endzone seat for the Chiefs-Colts playoff game in Jan '04. The Colts were at the Chiefs 11, coming right at us. They come out in a spread look; we show them a man-to-man defense. Wesley is locked up on Brandon Stokely in the slot. Peyton starts doing his spaz bullshit at the line, and Wesley starts to float in towards the line, just a few steps. Peyton sees this, points it out, hikes the ball immediately, and Brandon Stokely has the easiest touchdown he'll ever get in a playoff game. Our whole section is screaming before the snap "STOKELY!!" If we drunk dumbasses could see it, how could Wesley not? Unbelievable.

That's my most vivid Wesley memory. But to give him props, he DID pick Tom Brady off three times in one game at Arrowhead.

I cant wait for the inevitable WPI Column from Claythan entitled:

"Top 10 reasons why releasing Wesley was a mistake"

Wrote this last year.

<table><tbody><tr><td valign="top">Let me preface this column by saying I believe Greg Wesley is an underrated player among NFL safeties. I don’t think he’s given the level of respect among Chiefs fans he probably deserves.
</td></tr> <tr> <td colspan="3">
I don’t know where the perception that Wesley is a poor player comes from. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that when he screws up – man, he really screws up.

Getting run over by Browns quarterback Derek Anderson (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980921) in Cleveland last year didn’t help his reputation, and he probably punched his ticket out of town when he gave up an 87-yard touchdown pass against the Baltimore Ravens a week later.

Despite those gargantuan gaffes, Wesley is not a bad football player. I’m not going to lie and say he’s been unfairly denied invitations to multiple Pro Bowls (although he, and not Jerome Woods, deserved Hawaii honors in 2003), but he’s a far better safety than he is given credit for.

It was never more evident this week when the Chiefs released defensive end Eric Hicks (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980131) and traded bust-of-the-century Ryan Sims (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980163). With the departure of those two veterans, Wesley is now the last surviving member of the 32nd-ranked defense the Chiefs fielded in 2002.

I believe it to be no coincidence it happened this way.

Wesley really doesn’t deserve to be remembered in the same light as the rest of “The 32nd.” I think he was by far the most talented player on that defense, and it showed, as he grabbed six interceptions to lead the team that year.

Now, did #25 flash onto our TV screens whenever that defense gave up a big play? More often than not, yes, but as a safety, Wesley has always been the last line of defense. Don’t blame him for the inept play of his teammates that allowed “offensive superstar flavor of the week” to torch KC’s defense back in 2002 (and subsequent years).

Just how pitiful were the not-so-brave men of the 32nd? Other than Sims, who missed most of the season with a broken elbow, there was but a single first-round draft pick among the starters - defensive end Duane Clemons (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=1932350), who pretty much had his worst season as a pro that year.

Defensive lineman John Browning (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2478440), Wesley and William Bartee (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980204) (also dumped this offseason) were the only other first-day draft picks. Lew Bush, Scott Fujita (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2987593), Eric Warfield and Jason Belser (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=291343) were all second-day draft picks, and there were two un-drafted free agents – Hicks and the aptly named Mike Maslowski (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=1835237).

That’s right. Over half of that defense’s starters either came from the second-day of the NFL draft, or not at all.

Now compare to today’s defensive lineup. Tamba Hali (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980128), Derrick Johnson (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980133), Napoleon Harris (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2981092), Ty Law (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980141), Bernard Pollard (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980148) – all first or second-round draft picks. Tank Tyler and Ron Edwards (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980119) (the probable opening-day starters at defensive tackle), and cornerback Patrick Surtain (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980166) – first day picks in the third round. Ironically, Donnie Edwards and Jared Allen (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980078) – maybe the best players on the defense – are second-day picks.

That leaves only Jarrad Page (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980146), a steal in last year’s seventh round. Will he be better than Wesley? I guess we’ll find out in 2007, but don’t think Page doesn’t have some big shoes to fill.

Wesley’s 13 interceptions over the last three seasons compare favorably to top safeties like Minnesota’s Darren Sharper (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2981113) (17 picks), Baltimore’s Ed Reed (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2981652) (15) and Philadelphia’s Brian Dawkins (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=2980167) (11). Of that group, Wesley trails only Dawkins in forced fumbles.

Bottom line – Wesley was a playmaker. Maybe he wasn’t perfect, but he certainly doesn’t deserve to be lumped in with the rest of the 32nd.

Over his entire Kansas City career, all Wesley has known, for the most part, is bad defense. The Chiefs ranked 20th or worse in total defense in six of his seven seasons. Now that the Chiefs are finally surrounding him with some talent, I find it ironic – and a little bit sad - that he’s most likely leaving.

Well the Colts playoff game isn't too far behind, though Im sure there have been other teams that never made that offense punt. Everyone knew that game would be a shootout.

But in that Giants game I have literally seen pop warner kids tackle better than what I saw in that game.

The whole defense should have gotten canned for that and been replaced with replacement players. There is no excuse for that performance.

Bartee in the 2nd
Wesley in the 3rd

What a steal.

Wesley might be the best third-round pick of the Carl Peterson era.

he's just been too inconsistant.

Herm summed it up when he came here saying he should be a pro bowl safety with his talent. He gets the turnover stats each year 100 plus tackles but just makes the boneheaded mistakes too often.

You could slide him down in the box at SS (not for us in the C2) but then have to worry about missed tackles. He has the lanky frame and range for a center fielder but couldn't get the mental game to become a pro bowler.

He's had a nice productive career that would be more respected if he played on some better defenses with other players.

Leadership skills were lacking as well. Jerome Woods gets hurt and Wesley disapears and plays like crap when they need him to step it up. The missed tackles rack up from everyone on the defense and we need him to step it up and lay the wood and he falls in line with the crappy play of the others. That's where he could have seperated himself but didn't.

Chiefs release veteran safety Wesley
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

More on the Chiefs
Veteran safety Greg Wesley, who has long desired his release from the Chiefs, was granted his request today.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he was already fielding calls from teams interested in Wesley, a starter for seven seasons before he was replaced last year,

“There’s a lot of interest in Greg, as we thought there would be,’’ Rosenhaus said.

Rosenhaus said he was optimistic Wesley would sign with another team before training camps begin next week.

“That’s the plan,’’ he said.

The Chiefs have tried for more than a year to trade Wesley and almost had a deal in place with Denver last season.

Jarrad Page and Bernard Pollard are set as the starting safeties. Jon McGraw and rookie DaJuan Morgan, a third-round pick, are the backups.

I didn't want this putz on the roster last year, and am glad to see the Chiefs rid themselves of this overrated piece of shit. He never figured out the basic fundamentals of the game, despite being in the league 8 years. Then cries and complains because a ROOKIE had better instincts and played fundamental football. Out head coach was a damn good DB in his day and I have 100% faith in his decisions when it comes defensive changes.

It would have been nice to find a sucker to give up a draft pick. But, good riddens none the less.

They released him for nothing when they could have gotten a fourth from Denver for him last year. Brilliant.

I know this sounds crazy, but Boone was pretty fast last season, and damn strong.

If he has slimmed down to 285, like they say he has, I think he's going to surprise a lot of you guys.

That is not an unusual size for a LE. They are genuinely bigger guys. I think he's gonna be stout against the run, and be a decent pass rusher from the left side.

Our run D ranked 28th last season. with Tank, Dorsey, and Boone, I expect that to improve dramatically.

You heard it here. Boone doesn't do so bad at LE.

So the Chiefs are supposed to be scared that a 2nd rate safety might make a few plays against them if he lands on another team?

Big deal....if he does he does. Hes still not worth keeping.

No, we're supposed to be pissed when the Broncos get a decent player in the 4th that we could've picked up instead.

Now compare to today’s defensive lineup. Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, Napoleon Harris, Ty Law, Bernard Pollard – all first or second-round draft picks. Tank Tyler and Ron Edwards (the probable opening-day starters at defensive tackle), and cornerback Patrick Surtain – first day picks in the third round. Ironically, Donnie Edwards and Jared Allen – maybe the best players on the defense – are second-day picks.



last time that I checked Jared Allen is playing for the Vikings this year thanks to another King Carl (I mean Carl the Jester) bonehead roster move.
