    CHIEFS HAUL IN WILLIAMS

    The free-agency frenzy continues, even late into a Saturday night.

    According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the Chiefs have agreed to terms with former Falcons linebacker Demorrio Williams on a five-year, $16 million contract.

    The deal includes $5.5 million in guaranteed money.

    I think the Chiefs just jumped the Chargers in the division.

      Come on now dude this is a good sign but its not going to bump a team like the chiefs past the chargers. Thats pretty stupid saying that. Upgrading your LB core with one guy wont put you past a team that has no glaring weaknesses. Chiefs Oline is weak, secondary is average and old plus they have have a major problem at Q...

      1. Chargers
      2. Broncos
      3. Chiefs
      4. Raiders

        What would he play? He is a WLB...isnt that the same position as Johnson?

            nope. I think they keep Johnson at the SLB, move Edwards to MLB, and play Williams at WLB.

              This seems likely, although the Chiefs don't really employ strong or weak sides on defense, everybody is left or right.

                I think this is a good signing. The value on the contract is good--especially when considering the other contract being doled out--and Williams is a solid LB.

                Oldie but a goodie.

                  i'd have to disagree on a few of those fronts. I would also put the chargers WR and QB above that of KCs

                    Johnson plays SLB? Really? I couldve sworn he plays weakside.

                    Williams is a good guy, and has the chance to get alot better in the future. He overpursues like no other and bites on playactions like Grady Jackson biting on his burgers. He is also a bit undersized and gets swallowed up against blockers or any sort. But, he is very athletic is great against the pass. He will fly across the screen to make a tackle or blow up a screen play. But even his weakness can be worked on. Good deal.

                      Quite the haul. Decent starter.

                        Not to burst your bubble but Demorrio Williams barely held off a 4th round rookie for his job. He's weak at the point of attack, and will over-pursue.
                        Then again, I have been more critical of his play than other Falcons' fans.

                          Our problem is not at QB. It's at offensive line. I will agree on that. And no glaring weakness? Please. This is the same argument every Chargers fan spouts. I still don't buy the whole "best roster in the NFL" thing.

                          This is a good signing, but we have other areas that need improvement. With that being said, I'm realistic and I don't think we've jumped anyone in our division, but I also think the Chargers are overrated.

                            Donnie Edwards is expected to move to MLB..and D.Williams to take over the weak side.

                              I'm pretty sure he was joking when he said that.

                              As for the pick up while I do like it and we didn't over pay we have WAY bigger needs like OL,CB and WR.
