Teicher:Signing surprises Chiefs safety

Signing surprises Chiefs safety


By ADAM TEICHER

Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -

San Jose Mercury News article

Greg Wesley figured that as a five-year starting safety for the Chiefs, he was entitled to the benefit of a doubt.
Sure, last year wasn't Wesley's best, but he was bothered by injuries and, hey, it's not as if he was the only Chiefs defender who didn't play to expectations.

So it caught Wesley from the blind side last week when the Chiefs signed Miami free agent Sammy Knight and handed him Wesley's job as the starting strong safety.

The move leaves Wesley and another longtime starter, Jerome Woods, competing to be the free safety.

Having a few days to digest the news did little to curb Wesley's frustration.

"I can't see myself playing backup to anybody," he said Thursday. "I'm not a backup safety. I've been a starter in this league for five years, and I'm not about to be a backup now.

"I don't have a problem with them bringing somebody else in. I'm happy they're bringing some guys in to help the defense. Everybody knows the defense needs to improve. After the year we had, I expected something like this to happen. I just didn't expect it to happen to me."

Would Wesley ask for a trade or his release if Woods winds up winning the job?

"I'm not going to say yes or no," Wesley said. "We'll have to wait and see what happens."

Both Wesley and Woods were given new contracts last year that make a trade or a release impractical.

"We have a lot of confidence in Greg's ability," said his agent, Drew Pittman. "The Chiefs obviously think highly of him because they gave him a new contract last year."

Wesley's reaction is part of what the Chiefs were seeking when they signed Knight. They wanted to get the attention of both Woods and Wesley, players they view as part of the problem last year.

They particularly wanted to motivate Wesley. The Chiefs gave Wesley a new contract last year that paid bonuses totaling $5 million and believe he lost some of the fire that led them to give him the contract in the first place.

"That's ridiculous to me," Wesley said. "They talk about last year, but they don't talk about the four years I put in to get to where I am. I earned that money. I didn't have the year I wanted to have last year. I was hampered by a hamstring and everything. But I still don't think I had as bad a year as people make it seem."

The Chiefs don't begin organized offseason workouts until late March but are already impressed with Woods's efforts to regain what he lost last season. Woods hired a speed coach and trains with him at his offseason home in Memphis, Tenn.

The Chiefs have had little contact with Wesley since last season ended and were unsure of his efforts.


"I know what I have to do," Wesley said. "I've been working. I didn't hire a strength coach or a speed coach or anything. But I've been working on my own. I'm going to be there for the start of the offseason program so I can stay in shape."

Yeah, Greg, it's everybody else who's played like shit on the D.

EVERYBODY on that D should be scared for their jobs. Except Eric Hicks, who dangles comfortably from Dick Vermeil's Lexus rear-view mirror.

I think that this is where the line is drawn. Nobody is entitled to anything in life, love, business, or starting in NFL game. If someone can do it better get them in there or beat them out of the position.

Yep. Sounds like when Wesley got his payday, he figured that he had it made for the next few years.

What a crock. Everyone knows that you have to prove yourself every year. Everyone except Wesley and Woods I guess.

What happened over the last four years is over. Its done. History. If you cant produce this year, youre out of here, and someone else will get a shot.


I cant believe anyone could be that foolish. Especially after the horrible year the defense had, they should have seen this coming a mile away.


Get in there and start hitting some people, and you might get your job back.

just wait ... you'll see


i'm imagine it will go like this:


wesley will come into camp and look better at strong safety

knight will come into camp and look good at strong safety

woods will come into camp and look like dog dirt at free safety


we'll then start trying to convert wesley to free safety ... he won't like it, won't be very good at it.

then will dick around with 2 strong safeties trying to figure which guy will be the best free safety all preseason long.

finally we'll end up keeping Woods just in case ... but end up using him at cornerback because of warfields suspension and because we didn't upgrade the cornerback positon enough

so wesley will be back at strong safety
knight at free safety
woods at nickleback


it will be screwy all season long because we needed a gawd dam free safety and cornerback and we ended up getting another strong safety.


and the fuggnut carl will give his arrogant little smirk and pretend like he had nothing to do with it ... prolly indirectly blame gunther because he knows goonther is too stupid to know how to stand up for himself.


carl's got his new contract ... he's golden, he can go back on vacation.
