Chiefs Send Shaun Smith Offseason Training Program


The Kansas City Chiefs have sent DE Shaun Smith an offseason training program.

This could be significant because Smith is set to be an unrestricted free agent when the new league year starts in March.

Smith tweeted out the Instagram photo from his verified Twitter account.

Could this mean the Chiefs want to bring Smith Back?

I am not so sure. The program is voluntary and the team’s trainers may send it out to every player still under contract so they can stay in shape during the offseason. The trainers likely don’t know which players the team will end up retaining and so everyone probably gets the program.

Still, Smith thought it was significant enough to tweet out so it could be a good sign.

We will likely find out soon as John Dorsey begins negotiating with the agents of the players he wants to re-sign.

Do you want Shaun Smith back next season?

    I like the perv

    Good sign or bad, it shows us that Reid is trying to piece together what the roster has. Tell you, I am more than upbeat with Dorsey and Reid even though they has not done all that much. With their arrival, it is like a breath of fresh air, a weight off of my chest. Heck I have no indication if it will work any better than the last bunch of bananas, but I am getting that glimmer that Marty referred to during his time.

      You? Upbeat? You’re supposed to be our go-to pessimist!

      • Michael Shaw

        HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! BAZINGA!!! Nailed that one on the head!!!

        Always a glass half empty guy but only got pessimistic after Pioli’s first draft. Probably still say some nasty things even when the Chiefs go on their superbowl run.

        But for now, Clark Hunt could not have done a better job as owner, and the new guys are my idea of what a GM and HC should be. Cannot help myself, I really like how this team is being put together management wise. Potentially this could be that “something special” run we all dream about. Never felt that with the last bunch.

      Compare Albert’s “I want to be a Chief” to Waters’ and Gonzo’s reaction when Pioli came to town, and a resounding so far so good.

  • In_My_Opinion1

    I like Shaun. He brings some nastiness to our line. He’s got that “I’m gonna do my job, even if it means grabbing some sack to beat my man” mentality.

  • ladner morse

    Yes. The man has “multiple” ways to be disruptive… I enjoy them all.

  • Danny W

    Yah I think he’s better than Dorsey and just as good as Jackson with 1/3 the price tag.

  • Jack Thomas

    I wish geno would tweet that he got his off season playbook and training program.

  • Doc

    Smith brings it (as best he an) and he brings that nasty attitude that we need too. Plus he brings comic relief with his statements. He is a good back up and a can give breathers to the others as needed. A good security piece to keep around and should priced just right.

  • Cha-iefs

    yep bring him back. He’s just the right mix of weird,nasty and ball player …that makes for entertainment.

  • d-block

    Might as well have the sleaziest man in football on our side. Go Chiefs!

  • PunjabiPete

    I hope SHaun SMith keeps grabbing balls for the Chiefs for years to come; that being said I am interested in knowing how he will fit into Dorsey’s scheme, whatever that may be.
