In announcing Pioli’s award, PFW cited the Chiefs 2010 draft class along with the free agent signings of RB Thomas Jones, G Ryan Lilja, and C Casey Wiegmann in helping the Chiefs complete their “worst-to-first” performance this season.
For the uninitiated, we have been counting down the greatest Kansas City Chiefs, in order of their jersey number, for the last two years. The first post was back in May 2009 and in just two short years, we’ve gotten….51 of them done. The concept is simple. I gather information on all of the players to wear a certain jersey number and you vote on which one of those players was the greatest Chief to wear that number.
After Waters’ career ended at North Texas, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Kansas City Chiefs who arguably ended up with the biggest steal of the year. (The sole reason Waters is not higher on the list is because his college stats weren’t as impressive as the following players’ stats). Since signing with Kansas City in 2000, Brian Waters has received numerous awards including five Pro Bowls, being named an All-Pro twice, and the 2009 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
Kansas City: The Chiefs will likely consider a receiver with the No. 21 pick. Bryant would be a steal there. And he’d be a dynamic addition to this offense. But Kansas City general manager usually stays away with players who have had character concerns. So, I’d be surprised if this would be a fit.
Patrick Allen is VP of Content for the FanSided Network. He also serves the managing editor of the network's very first site, Arrowhead Addict. Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
