Shawn Barber
Vonnie Holiday
Dexter McCleon

---------------------

We could have had:
Hugh Douglas
Takeo Spikes
Dre Bly

---------------------

Personally Douglas would have been a mistake. The Jags found out that too. Spikes was got for the same money we gave Barber. Dumb move Carl. Spikes never went to Pro Bowl in Cincy cause he was playing in Cincy. McCleon played ok last year but Bly would have been the better move.

Oh well, the past is in the past. Just some random thoughts.

How much more would Spikes have cost than Barber?

You left out one factor...the one that kept us from getting guys this year.

Some players just don't want to play in KC. It's just a notch above GB in terms of lame places for a pro athlete to live.

Exactly. This isn't Madden 2005. There are a ton of factors that go into a decision like this on both ends.

dude if this was I could get 2 first rounders and a 2nd out of priest, a first rounder for Trent Green, 1 for gonzalez, 1 for shields, 1 for roaf, at least a 3rd for half the team.


Hell I could redo the whole team in a year with all new studs.......

Hmmm.... Shawn Barber in 2003... base salary $655,000 signing bonus $5,500,000

Takeo Spikes base $1,000,000 sign bonus $9,000,000

Yeah, I guess those are the same.

Hell i don't know why you wouldn't want to play in KC, you can play like dog shit and what do you know, the fans come right back out the next week.
