Peter King: John Dorsey, a rookie who doesnt have time to be a rookie

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl...1_a6&eref=sihp






John Dorsey: A rookie who doesn't have time to be a rookie.

"You see the bottom drop out of the market, and you react."

It wasn't the trade for Alex Smith, which seemed easy even though the pricetag (a second-round pick this year, and another high pick next year) was high, or the signing of backup quarterback Chase Daniel to give the Chiefs good quarterbacks at first- and second-string. Nor was it the decision to sign Dwayne Bowe to franchise receiver money, or to franchise left tackle Branden Albert. It was stretching to get 6-foot-3 cornerback Sean Smith from Miami, when the cornerback market was crashing and Dorsey didn't have much time to decide what was right or wrong.

"We had decided we were going to address free agency, but in a frugal way, after we signed our own guys,'' Dorsey said. "One of the things I've learned is it's not smart to go what I call the JUCO route, taking players who might be only short-term fits. We want to take guys at reasonable prices who can be core players. When the corner market changed, we really had to go after Sean.''

To clinch the deal, Dorsey paid $7.5 million in year one, which means Smith won't be a one-year fix; he'll be a relative bargain at $3.5 million in year two.

I like the fact that both Reid and Dorsey think Alex Smith throws the ball well enough downfield to commit to him. He doesn't have a top-10 arm in the league, nor a top-15. But he's certainly good enough. "We looked at every plus-10 throw he made in the last two years with the Niners,'' said Dorsey, meaning every thrown that traveled more than 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. "And we liked what we saw. He's got enough arm to win in this league; there's no doubt in my mind. He can throw the 20-yard comeback from the opposite hashmark and hit his target. And he knows when to take a shot and when not to.''

That's a shot Dorsey and Reid have taken, and I think they'll be rewarded for it.

We're paying this dude $7.5 million to get roasted this year.

Can't wait.

Perhaps you would like to have Piioli back?

It's silly to think a guy who has never come close to being a good CB is being paid like an elite one this year.

His salary this year is a matter of structuring the deal.

Well if we could have Brandon Carr back, I'd gladly give the compensatory pick back.

But with the additions of Smith and Robinson, he acknowledges the needs in the secondary. More depth. I like it.

But, but, PFF says he sucks so it has to be true.

By the way, PFF also says Alex Smith is better than Joe Flacco so it's obvious they are infallable.

$11M in 2 years isn't a "stud CB" contract. $50M for 5 is.

Yeah, that's encouraging.....

Which took all of 5 minutes.....

I love how King basically nit-picks every move the Chiefs have made.

The Chiefs have had a hell of an off season and we have not had the draft yet. I don't like the price we paid from Alex Smith, but oh well. Peter King can fu@k off as far as I'm concerned.
