The Chiefs had a closed to the media workout session today that included 3 WR’s , 3 OL and 1 QB. We have since learned that the wide recievers were Amani Toomer, David Terrell and D.J. Hackett.
It is also being reported that the Kansas City Chiefs are “leaning towards” signing Amani Toomer. (via ESPN)
“The Kansas City Chiefs are leaning toward signing veteran receiver Amani Toomer, according to two NFL sources.
Toomer could be signed as soon as Tuesday if the Chiefs follow through their current thinking, the sources said. Toomer was one of three veteran receivers Kansas City worked out Monday as their early training-camp work showed the team they may need more help for new quarterback Matt Cassel.”
Toomer is obviously the more polished of the three wide outs and would give the Chiefs some more vetern leadership on a fairly young offense (similar to Bobby Engram).
Personaly I think that signing Toomer would be a great move at this point. He is stil available so you know he isn’t going to demand lots of $$, he provides veteran leadership, and still has plenty of gas left in the tank. The Patroits were/are famous for signing “old” veteran players who are out to prove they still ‘have it’. Oh, and did I mention the Chiefs still have plenty of room under the cap (I don’t even know if they have met the minimum yet).
Even if this didn’t work out the worst that could happen for the Chiefs is they cut him and lose a little bit of money It’s a win-win in my book.
P.s. In other Chiefs news the Kansas City Chiefs have cut guard Edwin Harrison (who has sat out mutliple practices recenlty so this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise). This also means the Chiefs are back down to 81 roster spots.
So what do you think Chiefs fans? Would Toomer be a good fit in KC?
