Hackett/Hartwig Update

AA FA UpdateThe Chiefs really botched this one. Man, did Arrowhead Addict fave D.J. Hackett sign on the cheap. I would have been fine with the Chiefs giving him another year and more money. From the Charlotte Observer:

D.J. Hackett is coming to Carolina.

The Panthers agreed to terms Monday with Seattle’s free-agent receiver on a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

Hackett improves the Panthers’ depth at the receiver position opposite Steve Smith. He is expected to compete with Muhsin Muhammad and Dwayne Jarrett for a starting spot.

The Panthers didn’t even have to guarantee Hackett a starting gig. Kansas City would have been a much better opportunity for him playing time-wise, but I digress.

The Chiefs Cheaps at least better redeem themselves by signing Justin Hartwig today, who they are currently meeting with. I agree with some of Steven’s points from this morning, but even if we don’t spend a lot of money we have to go out and sign new Chiefs as well. Hartwig is only 29, which is young for a center. Especially considering that he missed almost an entire year and was pretty old when he entered the league. Cross your fingers…
