Would the Priest even be making an effort to come back...

if he didnt need to get on the field for his contract extension to kick-in?



Reading between the lines, it seems to me like that might be his only incentive this season. And I feel that he's going to do everything in his power to make that happen. But is there anything more than that driving him to play?

What are the details of his contract? I didn't realize they were public knowledge.

Not sure of the exact details, but when the Chiefs worked a deal for him they gave him a contract extension I believe, not actually reworking the current one. So this season is the 1st of his new deal, and in order for it to kick in he needs to get on the field I believe. Otherwise the Chiefs are entitled to ask for some of his signing bonus back, from what I understand.

I never remember anything in print about Holmes' contract. Someone determined that he had changed his contract based on changing base salary numbers from the NFLPA site. I don't think anyone ever came out and said what actually took place.

Point being, I think you're doing a lot of speculatiing. which I guess goes hand in hand with your speculation that money is the only thing that drives Priest Holmes.

But to answer the question in the thread title, I think what you're suggesting is a possibility. But I also think it could be the same thing that motivated him to return from numerous other injuries throughout his college and pro career.

Besides, if it really is a neck injury that should keep him out of the game, I doubt he's going to take that risk even for a few million dollars. If the injury isn't what is keeping him back, then I think it's his perogative to return to the game regardless off motive, and Chiefs fans should be glad to have someone of his talent on the roster.

Sure he wants to get paid, he's made that clear before. He's also a competitor though and I'm sure he feels he still has something to offer on the field. No one wants to go out on anything but their own terms.

I'd guess it's all about the money, just like all the other players in the NFL. It's nothing to be ashamed of.

Yea, and if you actually think about it, what was the motivation of the Chiefs' front office when they restructured his contract? Money. gasp

This may be harsh, but I couldn't care less whether he comes back or not. I don't get emotionally attached to players on "my team" like I used to.

You don't have to have an emotional attachment to wish for the return of Priest Holmes. He'd be the best backup RB in the league, and there's a handful of teams that he'd start for.

What football fan in their right mind wouldn't want him on their team?

I'm sure $ might play a role, but I imagine a player like PH has that burning desire to play. I think several teams would be trigger happy to give him a chance to start, but his health recently isn't pointing to him being a 16 game starter anymore. That being said - he's a hell of an insurance policy and would be great in a RBBC type of scheme.

Just think how badass the Rams could have been had they used Jackson and Faulk well last year. KC could be really doing well if PH can take 8-10 carries a game, giving LJ 18-22.

No doubt, he'd be the leagues best backup RB.
