I'm not sure he fits the profile. Pioli doesn't like guys who get caught.

Sign him for the league minimum with production incentives and a good behavior clause..... all he needs is a change of scenery..... he'd be a good lockerroom veteran......... he'll have 1350 yds and 17 TDs with Cassel as QB...... but, maybe he's lost his burst........ so, no, he's a has been.......... why do would we keep bringing in these old has-beens........ etc.

Ha.

I don't think this is a bad idea. We need a stopgap. Even if he's a 1-year fix to give Cassel some options, it would be worth it.

Good point. A cap in the ass will slow down a pass rush in a hurry.

From what I can ah'member... The Chiefs now have policy to only retire the numbers of those in the HOF... They may not let anyone wear it, but it'll be at least 7 to 8 years before its officially retired...

Engram will be an asset as a #3 WR.

To the original question...
I'd absolutely make a run at Harrison.
We need help!!!

Posted via Mobile DeviceSomeone should wear #88 next year to show Gonzo that if whine and bitch while you are here that you want to leave then we will just replace you. You are replacable.

Harrison is obviously the answer. We MUST have two WRs that are 35 or older. That ought to help with a new QBs continuity and confidence. Hell, they might play 10 games this year! If we're really lucky, they may be back next year!

You're right.

Surely the gaggle of underachievers at #2 (Darling/Bradley/Webb) are a better answer. What better way to start the Chiefs tenure of your $14,000,000-man than to trade away his best pass-catcher, leave him with a WR with unreliable hands, AND a trio of WR's with 15 years of NFL experience and 2,000 (combined) receiving yards.

Nah Marvin, we're good.

I think Harrison still has a lot of value for the right system... could very well work out him in KC. I think he'll try to pick the best spot though (ie - contender for a title in 2009).

Did anybody actually watch Marvin Harrison last year? He wasn't the same at all. His body's worn down.

meh ... only if they give him a look first and check his speed and burst. I tend to think that he's pretty much done.

Bradley is actually pretty good when he's healthy. I think if he can ever shake the injury bug, he will be a solid #2. He actually looked better than Bowe at times last season.

Mark Bradley is an excellent #2 (when healthy).
Trouble is, history's shown he probably won't stay that way.

Exactly.

Saying Bradley is good WHEN he's healthy is like saying Tammy Faye Baker was pretty hot WHEN she wasn't wearing 3 inches of makeup.

Me too. Harrison went from hero to zero last year. I think he's done. Totally done.

Having said that I still hope we bring in a high-quality pass-catcher before the season.

I feel the same way. Although I still think he can contribute? and could still prove to be a decent asset to a team. but I think his days as being a primary receiver on a team are behind him.

Question,

why toomer over Harrison?

Harrison is proven to be more productive and wouldn't you rather take the guy who has proven to be more productive?

There must be something about Toomer you like over Harrison to make you want to lean towards having him rather then Harrison who is more established.

No doubt Harrison was the better player 2 or more years ago. But I'd say there isn't much between them now. Harrison was a shell of his former self last year and I don't see him getting reborn in R&G. Toomer is extremely well preserved, takes incredibly good care of himself and still seems to produce better than expected year after year. I wouldn't be surprised if he had as much or more to offer than Harrison at this point of their careers. Besides, he'd be cheaper and doesn't have any legal baggage (that I know of).

That aside I'd prefer a younger playmaker (like Boldin), but if the choice was between these two I'd definitely understand going with Toomer. JMO.

I'd rather we brought in additional younger receivers and give them all a chance to compete for snaps and depth chart position.

To me, that is superior to a guy who has a year or so left because we're building a strong core and not trying to put ourselves over the top.
