Wesley: 選'm not a backup safety'

Wesley: 選'm not a backup safety'

By ADAM TEICHER The Kansas City Star


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.

的 can't see myself playing backup to anybody, he said Thursday. 的'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.

的 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?

的'm not going to say yes or no, Wesley said. 展e'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.

展e have a lot of confidence in Greg's ability, said his agent, Drew Pittman. 典he 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.

典hat's ridiculous to me, Wesley said. 典hey 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' efforts to regain what he lost last season. Woods hired a speed coach and trains with him at his offseason home in Memphis.

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

的 know what I have to do, Wesley said. 的'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.

Greg, you can do three things here. You can gripe and moan about it and play the bench. You can let the signing motivate you, work your tail off in the offseason, and show up to camp and win your spot back. Or you can go about it half-hearted like you did last season and you might bump Woods out of his position.

Bottom line, you can't play like you did last year and expect job security.

Eh. The competition on this defense has been SORELY lacking for three seasons now. No one was in fear of losing their job.

Dick Vermeil sucks for not realizing this is what needed to be done earlier.

Competition is a wonderful thing,on the field, in business.

The Chiefs don't owe him $hit. He has to earn it. Injury aside.
Come in and compete.

The saying 'What have you done for me lately?' should ring load a clear now.

This is great, it is exactly what this team needs. Nobody on defense should feel that their job is safe, and bringing in competition will drive the players to play their best. No matter what happens, the best players will be on the field next year....I love it.

Well, he could also just kill Sammy Knight. That would work, too.

He's not. The rest of the crapsacks we have put out on _efense for the past several years make him look bad. If he ends up with another team with a decent defense he'll be regarded as a good safety again. He can't cover 50 square yards of field by himself all the time.
