According to Adam Caplan, the Kansas City Chiefs have worked out DT Shaun Smith.
The Chiefs haven’t signed Smith yet and I don’t expect them to. They are pretty well loaded at DE/DT and I just don’t see them inking Smith to a deal before the season starts.
The reason for the workout may be to just get an idea of where Smith is at physically. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Chiefs told Smith to stay in shape and wait for a call.
Smith is on the wrong side of 30 but he played well in Romeo Crennel’s scheme when he was with the Chiefs in 2010. Should one of the team’s defensive lineman go down with a prolonged injury, Rome Crennel will probably give Smith a call.
Smith, also refereed to as “Perv” around here, was popular among fans when he was in Kansas City. His antics on the field and his openness to communicating with fans on Twitter quickly made him beloved.
Smith also brought a bit of attitude to the KC defense, something they could maybe use a bit of this season. Still, KC has a number of younger players along their line they are trying to develop so a Chiefs/Smith reunion may have to wait.
