If the trade were to happen as soon as today, what are the chances he could even play the opening game?

Seems like it might take a little longer to acclimate a new player to the defense than the offense.

Anyone know which one he plays and how good is he ?
I know this isn't the same guy who chastised me for quoting "numbers" when I was discussing Morlon Greenwood's worth.

Rick Smith almost has them convinced to just give us this guy but he's bargaining for them to give us their first round pick, too.

Greedy bastid.

Rick Smith is the man.

Bob Gretz, of KCChiefs.com, reports Kansas City Chiefs FS Greg Wesley may not make the team's final roster.

per www.kffl.com

FYI, remember the hype for Boomer Grisby, well the Chiefs have moved him to FB, and he may not make the 53 man roster.

I think it was reported that KC asked for a 6th but Smith said no. If, as I project Bennett come on strong at CB and the Dline developes a push, the pressure eases significantly on the safeties. If we can upgrade by gtting him for a 6th or 7th, I signed off on that deal. But remember draft is reportedly strong in most rounds next year.

Guess we will find out tomorrow. Hopefully they cut him and we sign him.

Every big passing play we gave up during the preseason came straight up the middle of the field, we desperately need to do something to close that weakness.

We'll need to finish below .500 to get a draft spot high enough to get Mr. Philips. So which would you rather have a .500 or better season; or a losing season and the chance to get Philips in the 08 draft?

Some of it has to be the FS cheating over to help the CB. ALso, our LBs are good on the run but not so good in coverage. This will resolve somewhat as we get a few games under our belts.

Quote:
Safety Greg Wesley. The Chiefs have been trying to trade Wesley for the better part of the last six months. There have been a couple of interested parties including most recently the Houston Texans. That deal didn’t get done when Wesley refused to re-negotiate his contract. Wesley can still contribute on the field, but he won’t be a starter and that’s not likely to leave him as a happy camper.
http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/2007/08...he_next_moves/

Quote:
Linebacker Rich Scanlon. The Chiefs figure to keep seven linebackers, although the situation with Wesley may force them to carry five safeties, which has a trickle down effect on the other positions. Right now, it looks like Scanlon trying to pry the seventh linebacker spot out of the hands of rookie free agent Nate Harris. Against St. Louis, Scanlon and Harris were on all four major kicking teams units. The decision may come down to Scanlon’s experience against Harris’ upside and speed.

This isn't baseball, where the owner can simply spend to his heart content.

There is the salary cap, and you don't want to over pay for somebody ala Casserley, and if it is anybody's call it was Rick Smiths not McNairs.

Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs FS Greg Wesley will likely begin the season with the team. The Chiefs discussed a trade involving Wesley with at least two teams, including the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, but those talks cooled.

I bet they wouldn't have cooled if Casserly was still here. Wesley most likely would be a Texan right now, and KC would have gotten another 2nd or 3rd round draft pick.
