Per Gaughan, Chambers could be a “one-year bridge,” providing a nice complement to Lee Evans for whichever QB winds up under center in 2010. Chambers struggled to open the 2009 season in San Diego, but after a move to the Chiefs, he enjoyed a nice renaissance, with 39 receptions, 608 yards and four TDs. Speculatively, the Ravens, Jets, Patriots, Panthers and Bears might also take a look.
Despite the possible competition, Bill Williamson is saying that the rumor floating around the Combine is that the Chiefs are pushing to resign Chambers.
So it is no surprise that the scuttlebutt at the combine is that the Chiefs and Chambers’ agent are working hard to get an extension done. Pioli wasn’t specific about any of his players Thursday, but he did say his own free agents are important. In my mind, none are more important than Chambers. So, it makes sense that these two sides are working to get a deal done.
