Well, I stayed up and battled a cold for two hours to see if we’d hear even a peep about the Chiefs, and I didn’t hear a mouse fart. Well, besides this Brian Waters mess. Should have known that Scott Pioli’s first night of free agency would be a silent night. As long as we get some stuff done by weekend’s end, I’m cool with it.
A couple of things:
- Adam Schefter was talking about how many players and front office personnel in New England believe that Matt Cassel is one of the best five to eight quarterbacks in the NFL. If that is so, isn’t it almost a certainty that Scott Pioli will make a power play for him?
- Bart Scott is still out there. Jason Brown is still out there. But both guys are apparently headed to St. Louis. It doesn’t seem like we are in the running for either player right now.
- The good news is that pretty much everyone — well, besides DeAngelo Hall and a few others — is still out there. Antonio Smith. Derrick Ward. Nate Washington. Stacy Andrews. All the other guys on my Blueprint are still available.
I don’t think we’ll hear anything until the late morning, so I will check back in then. I’ll also have you covered throughout the weekend with news and analysis.
