The plot thickens.
Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine this afternoon, Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Romeo Crennel was asked about the team’s interest in a certain QB from Indianapolis. And Romeo delivered.
“Well, I’m not supposed to talk about anybody else’s players,” Crennel said with a smile, “he’s still a player with Indianapolis. But with a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available. All right? I’ll leave it at that.”
You’ve gotta love this. Gotta, gotta love it.
Yesterday, Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was asked the same question and gave the very safe answer that he was not allowed to talk about players currently under contract with other teams. After all, Pioli doesn’t want to get slapped with a tampering charge.
We should really have already known the answer to this question. Any team that isn’t undoubtedly set at the QB position is going to consider a free agent Peyton Manning. If this guy actually hits the market, for free, all hell is going to break lose. Al Davis may actually rise from the dead to try an acquire him. Stephen Ross will personally cut Chad Henne, with a knife, if it means Manning will come to Miami. Hell, Dan Snyder’s wallet will actually burst into flames and catch his ass on fire and he won’t even care.
The point is, it’s going to be a complete mad house and most everyone, including the Chiefs, will be looking to have themselves committed.
Get your straight jackets ready.
