Vrabel Good influence or not?

Mike Vrabel explained away his absence from all Chiefs voluntary workouts by saying he was "just trying to exercise my rights within the (CBA)" and that the practices were not mandatory for players.

Still, both parties would've been much better off had Vrabel attended. He's supposed to be the leader of new coordinator Clancy Pendergast's hybrid defense and is out of Bill Belichick's system for the first time this decade.

The jury's out on Vrabel. You'll have to wait and see how he shows up to camp. He's usually pretty professional, so I'm hoping he'll show up in shape, ready to play, and do his part not only on the field but on the sidelines.

And, hey, if not, he was basically a throw-in in the Cassel deal anyway. Cut his ass and move on. He's probably only got a good season or two left in him anyway.

This is the first time Vrabel has been traded. Look at Zack Thomas, he knows how it feels to be thrown around, so he knows he has to put in that extra effort. I think Vrabel will find that out too, but not on the first go.

I think Vrabel will be just fine, and will be acting like a leader come August 31st.

Mike Vrabel is the next David Whitmore. "Who is David Whitmore?," you ask. Exactly.

Why LJ? He's been here and been working, and that's from multiple sources. Waters I agree with you on. On-topic: Vrabel needs to show up ready to rock for camp, otherwise he really doesn't have any upside, especially when Thomas is pretty much being a defensive role model right now anyway.

A good season or two of Vrabel is probably worth more than any linebacker the Chiefs had in the last 7 years.

Glad the AP brought up the part about Vrabel being a usual non-attendant of OTAs or that they are OPTIONAL workouts.

Making a non-story out of a non-story. It's not like Vrabel was ever a rah-rah guy. He's a guy who's going to practice and play his ass off. And he will. People will write just about anything about anybody when they're bored.

Herm basically ruined LJ's career with his buffoonery. Getting paid or not, I appreciate him showing up from day one and working hard while we all sit here on our lazy summer asses and hurl insults at the guy.

It should be a story.

He was brought in here for his leadership. Pioli praised it when the trade happened. I can understand the guy is pissed about being dealt, and I would respect him more if he came out and said he was pissed rather than hiding behind the CBA excuse.

He should be here getting familiar with the new staff, his new teammates and the city. No, he shouldn't be here for every practice, but he should show his face once in a while.
