This is too much fun.

Imagine how Larry Johnson felt when he heard that the Bears had offered KC the 3rd overall pick in the draft, plus the 99th overall pick and DE Michael Haynes to the Chiefs for RB Priest Holmes and the new Chiefs management ACCEPTED.

Now imagine how he felt when the new Chiefs management, with the #3 overall pick in the draft, selected a 6'1", 221lb. HALFBACK out of Pittsburgh...

The offseason was bloody. I couldn't resist the temptation to GUT this team, especially on defense.

Chris Horn asked for too much money and was not re-signed. John Browning, Benny Sapp, and Freddie Jones were also not offered contracts.

Backup linemen Brett Williams and Kevin Sampson got the axe. Johnnie Morton was cut. Several defensive starters were released, including Vonnie Holliday, Dexter McCleon, Mike Mazlowski, Jerome Woods, Shawn Barber, and Eric Hicks.

In addition to the aforementioned trade of Priest Holmes to the Bears, injured QB Trent Green (shoulder) was traded to the Cowboys for the 14th-overall pick.

I extended a 1-year tender to RFA Scott Fujita and placed the franchise tag on Greg Wesley.

The Chiefs had an outstanding draft, largely due to the fact they had 3 1st-round picks. It went like this:

1st -- #3 -- HB Pittsburgh
1st -- #11 -- RG Georgia
1st -- #14 -- LT Howard
2nd -- #43 -- FS Kansas State
3rd -- #75 -- CB Pittsburgh
4th -- #99 -- WR Bucknell
4th -- #107 -- LE Bethune Cookman
5th -- #139 -- ROLB UCLA
6th -- #171 -- LT Montana
7th -- #203 -- WR Hofstra

Next up:

Free agency. I have to find a replacement of Trent Green somewhere.
