About this time last year the Texans were trying to worka deal to trade for Chiefs S Greg Wesley. The deal never happened, obviously; and he spent the 2007 season as a back-up. He kept quite about his disappiontment in not playing or being traded last year, but I think his patence has worn a bit thin.

Greg Wesley’s resolve to keep silent started to weaken recently when the Chiefs released several other veterans, but not him.

That resolve disappeared altogether as Wesley saw other safeties like Madieu Williams and Gibril Wilson receive massive paydays on the free-agent market.

So Wesley took public his desire to be traded or released, something he long ago asked the Chiefs.

And the real intersting tid-bit:
He asked out last year, and the Chiefs almost had a deal in place with Denver for a fourth-round draft pick. The Chiefs, not wanting to send him to an AFC West rival, backed out right before the trade was made.

They later could have sent him to Houston for a seventh-round choice, but that deal was scrapped when Wesley wouldn’t agree to take a pay cut.

“We don’t play the game for free,” Wesley said.

I think we all need to thank Mr Wesley for not taking his pay cut, as I think Demps is a better palyer and Demps would likely not be here if we had traded for Weasley.
