The Kansas City Chiefs have a number of young, up and coming players heading in to the 2010 season. Chances are, by the end of the season, someone will emerge as the team MVP.
Last year it looked like no one was going to step up until Larry Johnson went on a hateful Twitter tirade, officially ending his career in KC and opening the door for Jamaal Charles to distinguish himself as one of the best young running back prospects in the league.Charles was fantastic in the 2nd half of 09′ and he was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal offense.
Who will it be this year? There are plenty of candidates. There are veteran additions Thomas Jones, Ryan Lilja, Chris Chambers and Casey Weigmann. There are hungry rookies like Eric Berry, Dexter McCluster, Javier Arenas and Jon Asamoah. Then you the players with something to prove. Guys like Derrick Johnson, Brandon Flowers, Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Glenn Dorsey, Matt Cassel and Tyson Jackson. Throw in a couple of young guys who showed major potential in 09′ in Andy Studebaker and Jovan Belcher and you have a very good chance that one or more of these guys is going to step up and prove they are one of the team’s most valuable players.
Whoever it is, they will have to work hard to unseat Charles who appears to be on the verge of super-stardom.
What do you think Addicts? Who will be this year’s team MVP?
