I would really like him back. I know he's older, but he runs great routes and still has some speed to make things happen. I'd actually try to lock him up for 2 years now instead of letting him go out in FA.

He would be a much, much better option than going out and drafting Dez Bryant that high.

Let Wade go, get another slot receiver to go with Lance Long and these receivers might not be so bad.

Thoughts?

Agree.

He has shown that he still has some gas in the tank. I think a full season of him and Bowe with an improved line and JC would give our QB some things to work with.

At this point we almost have to. He's our #2 WR who's performing like a number one.

But they'd better try to find a future replacement as he could drop off at any moment. You just never know when WRs get up there like he is.

Maybe if we put some NOS, juice him up, he will be faster and more explosive?

Keep Chambers along with Wade and all the other recievers all the way through trainning camp and make them compete and work and then cull'em out.

Sure.

The WR depth this year is pretty good so you can get a guy later in the draft. If you're looking to draft a big-time WR then wait until next year for Julio Jones or AJ Green.

BigRedChief
11-23-2009, 07:41 AM
I'm okay with this bur I'm assuming we are going to draft a high pick at WR and pursue FA WR's pretty hard. We have the cap room.

We need a RT and G/C O-line help but those are not usually high round draft pick selections.

Absolutly keep him. Pioli will make a good contract, not to much, and he has found a home for a year or two to end his carear. He got no love in san dieeeego. As far as draft, yes we could upgrade but lets hope for O-LINE help first and formost and then PASS RUSH, then maybe reciever help. Can you imagine what Cassle and co. could do with more than .95 seconds to throw the ball? Yes I know there were a few times yesterday they had a little more time but it was trickery not blocking by o-line

11-23-2009, 08:23 AM
Definitely, he stepped in here like we had drafted him.

He's playing like he played when he made his name with the Fins.

Mr. Plow
11-23-2009, 08:31 AM
As old as he is, he is still better than a lot of the WR we have...so i say yes.

He needs to be re-signed but I would think that Pioli would give him an incentive laden deal. This way he will be a little more motivated then he was in S.D.

DumbHillbillies
11-23-2009, 08:37 AM

This.

I wouldn't want him turning into Bradley v.2.0 after he has a good season in KC.

I wish Bradley would get on page with everyone else. A Bowe/Chambers/Bradley/Long combo, in theory, could be pretty good for a couple years.

Chambers stretches the field, has dependable hands and is not afraid to block downfield. What's not to like? I realize he is older but an incentive-laden contract as mentioned earlier should keep the fire lit.

if he keeps producing with 80 + yards a game I don't see how they can't re-sign. too bad we can't pick up a productive LB/OL/S like the way Chambers was brought in

We got lucky. It doesn't happen very often.


Maybe, just maybe our receivers suck so bad that Chambers is showing us how a real WR should play, even one that was just released.

RedThat
11-23-2009, 11:16 AM
Yes definately. I'd love to have him back for next year.

The last 3 games have said quite a bit. He's made clutch plays in critical situations, and gave this team a chance to be in every game.

I've always liked him. I remember when he was with the Dolphins he did the exact same thing. This team needs more players like that.

I still think he can play. He's 31, but provides a solid veteran presence. I'd still be open to drafting another WR though? And yes I agree this team should cut Bobby Wade and keep Lance Long.

Priest31kc

Are you serious? You'd rather have Briscoe over Alexander? I dont care if your a KU fan or not, that's just stupid.

I would much prefer a burner opposite of Bowe than another big possession WR. We would be much better served with a speedy WR to stretch the field. They are both big WRs, but at this point I don't expect more of either one than being a #3 WR in the NFL.

Agree completely. This would be the perfect year to draft a guy like Maclin or Desean Jackson.

I don't see many burners in this year's draft though, most guys look like the possession type.

DaneMcCloud

Definitely re-sign him. He's completely changed the offense and the offensive playcalling since his acquisition.

And who gives a shit about the contract? We're heading into an uncapped year and the Chiefs are fucking $41 million under the cap.

Lock him up for two years.

We'll probably overpay for him. But it's worth it, given our cap situation. Frankly, I think Chambers will tail off next year--he did that after a real good half season with San Diego. But we don't need him to be a superstar. We just need him to be a strong stopgap so that we can fill in needs around him.

I'm cool with keeping him one more year, maybe bringing some WR in in the later rounds, and then prioritizing WR as a top priority in 2011.

bigbucks24
11-23-2009, 10:54 PM
There might be competition for his services. The Dolphins might like him back and I believe he liked Miami. He was very sad when he left. He might just retire wearing Aqua and Orange.

KCrockaholic
11-23-2009, 10:54 PM
Hell yeah, We would be stupid to just let him go. He has done his job and done it well since signing with us. It's a no brainer at this point. He would be great as a slot guy IMO if we can find someone better than him to start with Bowe.

The cap isn't and has NEVER been an issue with ANY NFL team.

It's a joke.

If the Chiefs WANT to sign Chambers, they'll sign him.

And it won't affect the rest of the team one iota.

I like Danario but, unless he runs a 4.5 at the combine I wont be impressed because he looks slower than dirt on gameday. I wont be surprised if he runs a 4.75 at the combine. But that is just me eye-balling his speed from the numerous times I've seen him play.

seriously? The dude runs a 4.5, and ran a 4.4 before his last knee injury. He averages 43 yards per TD, and he has 12 TD. Did you not see him outrun 3 K-State defenders, 2 which had angles on him 2 weeks ago? He has like 6 60 yard TDs, mostly YAC, and he's slow? 92 catches, 1,411 yds, 15.3 avg & 12 TD is more than just being a possession receiver.

It just doesn't look like he's as fast because he's a long glider.

I'd love to see us re-sign him, ideally a two year deal with a team option for a third, but the way he's been playing has opened eyes around the league. I fear he'll get plenty of offers from potential contenders, which could make our ability to re-sign him dependent on our willingness to overpay...

I'm not worried about the cap. I said that we have more than enough cap space to sign him. My greater concern is the Chiefs signing Chambers to a long-term deal and thinking that he's any kind of long-term answer and/or taking away opportunities from a younger guy who might out play him in the future. The fear is that Pioli sees we have Chambers and Bowe and doesn't think getting younger at receiver is a priority.

We could throw 10 million a year at the guy and it would not affect our ability to sign anyone else.

If he keeps playing like he is now, I have little doubt that Pioli would let him walk.

Isn't every year a "team option" year? I mean the team can cut the player anytime they want. Most football contracts aren't guaranteed. Heck, you can sign him for 5 years. I doubt he sees the 3rd year. But I'd still like to see the Dolphins get him.

I was under the impression that contracts could be structured to allow teams to make the last year of the contract's guaranteed $ dependent on an option held by the team. I may be using improper language... I would think this formula would deter disputes about the final year of a front loaded contract, as well as give a team more flexibility on evenly spread guaranteed $...

I would want him back. But...does his play/numbers here in KC make him want to shop around and look for a bigger number? It's not just Clark and Scott's decision. He will want to stay at a "Chiefs" proposed number. If he is offered a lot more money by someone else he is dumb not to go, and the Chiefs would be dumb to tag him. There are teams that throw silly amounts of money at "hot" players (Redskins, Raiders etc...) and if he continues to perform at this level he will get interest from other teams.

JUST SAY NO TO MIZZOU WR'S. Will Franklin, anyone?

*chill out MU homers, I'm just fucking with ya

Anyhow, hell yes lock up Chambers. He's been a fantastic addition to our offense, and can only help to free Bowe up. Hell, it's great having two WR's that are big and physical enough to go up after the ball. I'm sure Cassel loves the shit outta Chambers. Dude saves his ass, and makes big plays.

I don't know if Dez Bryant is seriously over-hyped or not, suppose we'll find out come combine time, but if we aren't going after another legit WR in next year's draft then we'll be fucked without Chambers.
