The Official Kansas City Chiefs General Discussion Thread
There is a Chris Chambers interview on kcchiefs.com and when asked about directions for the draft he says something along the lines of "I know some guys were cut and we need to replace those spots, like Mike Brown isn't here anymore" .. did Mike Brown get cut and I didn't hear anything about it? According to his wiki page, he's a free agent.
Did I just completely miss this or was it not really announced? I can't find any news articles about it either.
They didn't cut him, they just chose not to resign him when his one year deal expired. It was sort of a non-event and I don't think they ever announced it.
1st, you look at this and go, "Why do we want a someones elses bad WR?" If you think about it long enough, it makes sense. Teddy could be a Pro Bowl KR/PR. He has proven his worth on special teams. 2nd, maybe a change of scenery does him alot of good. He will ever be able to live up to the expectation put on him by the Dolphins or their fans. Coming to KC could be new start for him without high expectations. 3rd, we know that Parcels and Pioli aren't afraid to trade with each other. 4th, I think Teddy Ginn jr. will be a better player than most, not all, of the WRs avialable in the 5th round (if thats what they are asking for. I don't see him with much more value than that).
Ginn is young and has alot of football ahead of him. He is a great returner and has speed to be a deep threat. Is he worth giving up a 5th rounder to have those qualities in a player? I say, why not!
For the Chiefs, he'd be an ideal slot receiver on top of kick return duties. Injuries bother me more than anything. I'd give a 5th, maybe 4th.
I'm inclined to agree with you. I like his abilities alot. He has yet to realize his talent and come to fruition, but his strengths are many and help the Chiefs in many ways. If, and thats a large IF, his asking price is a 5th round pick, I would make the deal.
By the way, someone mentioned paying him top 10 money. Last season his cap value was $2.695 M making him the 44th highest paid WR in the NFL. Chris Chambers made $5.3 M in 2009, as a point of referrance. Obviously Teddy's # would change with a trade because his signing bonus would have to be paid in full at the time of the trade, but there are plenty of really bad WRs ahead of him in pay.
Deion Branch $7.546 M
T.O. $6.25 M
Roy E Williams $5.66 M
Michael Clayton $5.1 M
Antwaan Randle El $4.122 M
Braylon Edwards $3.854 M
You'll love this Darrius Heyward-Bey made $2.42 M in '09
I agree. He would fill a need that would also allow us to focus elsewhere early in the draft. I'm scared of taking Golden Tate in the top of the 2nd when we have so many other holes and Ginn could probably allow us to delay that a year. I think Ginn has unreasonable expectations placed on him because of Miami drafting him too early. I also would like to see Charles not be asked to return kicks this year and Ginn defiently could fill that void for us.
I also agree about the money. It's not that bad at this point of his contract it's not that bad and I'm already upset with how tight the Chiefs have been. Money should not be an issue on a one year deal. The other factor to consider is if he has a good year and we let him go we can get a 5th round or better compensintory pick next year.
