The Chiefs finally got something done. I still can’t believe we signed a linebacker, though. Then again, Demorrio Williams is young, can straight fly and we signed him on the cheap (an average of $3.2 million a year). Plus, Donnie Edwards is old and was banged up late last season, while Napoleon Harris didn’t play up to his contract. Will Harris get cut? That’s the big question coming out of this signing, because Williams will definitely start next season.
Zach and I are thinking that the Chiefs have just decided to go out and sign the best young, cheap, under-the-radar talent available, reason being that we have more holes talent wise than Swiss cheese. I think we’ll continue to see this strategy utilized, but at a slow pace. The Chiefs want to have leverage, and they currently have none in a players’ market. We also think that they want to have money when the well dries up for a lot of the other teams with cap room. That way they can scoop up some of the unsigned talent out there, and at a reasonable rate.
