    This is a nice pickup. His stats aren’t that far off from Tyson Jackson’s, and I bet Muir doesn’t count nearly as much against the salary cap.

    He’s a big boy. Kinda reminds me of Shaun Smith in a way.

    Wonder if this will impact possible directions in the upcoming draft? Back to trade down, OL, DB, or WR. Still do not see QB in first.

    Anyone know if Chiefs are able to negociate with their own free agents. Sign Albert, Colquitt, and Bowe and the draft priorities change again.

    el cid-I think they can negociate with Albert and Colquitt because they are still under contract until the start of the new NFL year. I think that’s in March. I don’t know about Bowe, because he is playing under the franchise tag. Hopefully Bob or someone else would know for sure.

    Any 22 off the street can win 2 games …Oh wait that was the last GM .For me… I can’t wait to see how many of Pioli’s draft picks are on this team in 2 yrs .

    jt, will be a sad “I told you so” for most of us. While not knowing how they or the rest of the roster fit into the Reid system, Pioli may have done his most harm to the Chiefs in talent evaluation. No sure where his head was but his version of talent has set this team back big time.

    Thats a bigboy 10-4 on Pioli being a talent eval bust.

    el cid No, I didn’t mean …told you so.As fans… we have opinion on players but the only way we know for sure, is when they are released.If or when the are ,it just validates our view.There seems only 2 answers, coaching or talent, on most players released.I have given 50yrs of fandom to this team if I seem cynical… I maybe

    And just think pioli gets hunt to agree to not pay haley because he sabatoged the team! I agree with el cid its pioli that did long term damage to the chiefs by drafting so poorly with some of the top picks in those drafts. No powerful core of ascending players to carry the team forward, basically wasted years and wasted draft choices finishing in the cellar!
