Which means he will sign with someone tonight. "Gee guys, we're sorry. We tried."

I'd take him. He'd be a good 2nd TE.

Scott has to put together a 2-TE package, just like his Papa Bill did.

Yeah - we definitely should have seen this coming.

I am nearly positive that if he comes to KC, we will sign him.

We are very serious about getting a TE and possibly a RB this offseason.

Not too shabby.

The Chiefs were really not happy that Carlson didn't sign. They put on full court press, but could not get him to the facility.

Where's Eric Winston, Scott?

Sign somebody good for once, you fucking asshole. I don't care if it's a TE, guard, or a fucking long snapper. Just show us that you care.

My God. Last week at this time I was hopeful for Manning. Now I'm hopeful for a fucking RT.

I should just kill myself now.

On the other hand, Boss would be good for a Cassel led team since he can't or won't throw beyond 10 yd passes. A good TE team is what you need for that kind of handicapped QB

If we were thinking about giving him anywhere NEAR the money the Vikes gave him, the Chiefs are fucking stupid.

He's John Freaking Carlson. The Chiefs need to realize that they are not the Vikings. They can't lure the sexy free agents into actual in-person discussions. Let's be realistic.

To be fair... that stupid contract the Vikings gave him would have made any #2 TE that hasnt played in a year not want to sign with anyone else... srsly ??? 5 years 25m/11g? Stupid..

We wanted Carlson badly it seems but Vikings showed him the $$$ before he reached Arrowhead. I'm glad to see Boss as the next option. It is pretty apparent KC is looking for a 2nd TE threat to go with Moeaki.

jcroft
03-14-2012, 04:15 PM
I'm glad we didn't overpay for John Freaking Carlson, and I'd prefer Boss to him, anyway.

Frustrated about a lot of things that have happened so far, but this isn't one of them.

This would be a good signing......he was a stud w/ NYG....wanted KC to sign him last season (or a couple seasons ago whenever he was last a FA).

Yeah he woudl be a good signing. Might be better than Carlson IMO.

As much as I'd like to have Manning, I'd consider it a successful free agency period if the Chiefs were able to snag Tolbert, Boss, and Winston. I doubt we'll get all 3 (I can only imagine the jack that Winston wants at RT after dude got a bajillion dollars at guard), but if we did I'd give Pioli major props.

We'll know by next Monday whether he's earned 'em...

Could be a good deal. Boss has $6 million in his pocket after the Raiders signed him as a FA in 2011. No matter who signs him, the Raiders still owe him $2 million this season. I'm almost sure...

The Chiefs should be able to work out a good deal.

All these players come with some kind of problem. With that said, Boss has a history of concussions.

When Boss decided to leave the Giants for the Raiders, he lost out on another Super Bowl ring ... lol

Outside of Moeaki he makes every other TE we have run out there look like TG.

You may remember that I was never a fan of TG.

I like the old school TEs that play their roles and are team oriented.

Boss is a good blocker and a reliable receiver.

We have the weapons outside.

Now all we need is a QB that can utilize them.

Boss would play the role that Pope and the other morons did. With Moeaki healthy (hopefully) we don't have to have another guy like that.


That said, I still wouldn't mind taking a developmental athletic as hell TE in the draft.

I dont think anyone is trying to make this out to be a huge deal, but it makes sense which is a welcome change from the BS we have been dealing with.

Carlson? Really is that the best they though was out there?

Don't worry, we'll trade up at some point in the mid rounds to take one - over a guy or two that ends up becoming a fucking superstar.

Is that so? But recently he has been missing games right? He's on the wrong end of injuries. If he missed games first couple of years, get him. Now though? Not a chance. Your choice though.
