    Well unless something else happens...I highly doubt it. And even if it does get to the point where AJ has to let Merriman go, he wouldn't just let him walk without anything. The CBA not being resolved helps us in this case because we would just slap the RFA on him.

      Why not liking the 3-4?

        Wait, what?

        He is arguably our best LB. He is "3rd" string right now as a way to motivate him. Bowe was 3rd string a few weeks ago and he has really grown as a WR under Haley. It's the same thing with DJ and with Page. It's all a motivational tool. Pollard being cut sent a clear message to these Chiefs veterans that they need to work harder than they ever have before. I actually am looking at DJ having a BREAKOUT year in this new system. He is the perfect LB for any scheme as he can tackle, cover and rush the passer.

        I find it hard to believe that we would let DJ go. He is our best defensive player period.. no one else comes close.

          My self I would not be shocked to see the Chiefs trade DJ I'm not so sure he is a good fit in the 3-4 with the trouble he has getting off blockers.

          He is in the last year of his deal so if they are going to move him they will have to do it soon not saying its the right move just saying I would not be shocked.

          I really like DJ and while I think he is a solid LB we as Chiefs fans have been saying this is the year DJ breaks out for four years and it has yet to happen.

          He might just be the most gifted athlete I have ever seen for the Chiefs at LB he has all the tools to be an All Pro but he has been to inconsistent.

          I have seen him take over games but he has also been a ghost at times Todd Halye keeps saying he doesn't want yo-yo players up and down he wants the same player every week.

            That was the first thing I thought when I saw his name.

            So +1.

            That's IF Gholston doesn't work out this year.

              Kampman is a free agent after the season.

                I would have said Page or Pollard ubt obviously the organization doesn't agree. There's also two top 5 picks on that D-line, they better develop if the Chiefs want to have hane anyh hope at all.

                  I would say Brandon Flowers is the Chiefs best D player you could make a case for Page but Pollard was never even close.

                  As for Tyson Jackson he has all ready shown signs of being a true beast he had a solid camp and made plays in pre season.

                  As for Glenn Dorsey not so much I'm not ready to throw in the towel but its not looking good.

                    Still wondering if anyone can tell me if Merriman can play in a 4-3 scheme as a traditional down lineman, or can he only do it as a pass rusher in a 3-4?
                    Also you should add Julius Peppers to that list, given that he wants to become a 3-4 lineman. I hope the Titans make a big run at him and convince staying 4-3 is smart.

                      What happened with Dorsey, is he just fat and lazy?

                        DT is a very hard position to come in as a rookie and have a impact and on top of that he had nothing around him he was pretty much shut down all year from double teams.

                        This year I think he has had trouble adjusting to the 3-4 nut I'm still not ready to give up on him and I don't think its a lack of effort just that he doesn't fit the system.

                        If he shows this season that he can't make the adjustment I could very well see him being trade bait this next off season.

                          Rams could pick up a legit SLB (if Larry Grant doesn't work out) and have a STUD linebacking core (WLB Will Witherspoon || MLB James Laurinatis || SLB ??? )
                          | Hawkeyes || Rams || Lakers || Braves || Avalanche |

                            3-4 is obviously his ideal position because of his range and run stopping ability, not to mention he is more than decent in coverage, but yes he can and does put his hand on the ground.

                            I don't think he would ever sign with the Titans though, it was a debatably illegal 'revenge' block that caused him to miss a season, plus there's no media coverage in TN.
