Chiefs Workouts & NFL Transactions – 9/24

The Chiefs have been busy bringing in street free agents for workouts, including bringing in a potential center, along with defensive backs.

The DBs visited late last week as CB Darius Butler, S Derrick Martin, CB Bryan McCann and CB Frank Walker visited the Chiefs facility. Butler is 26 years old, a former 2nd-round choice in 2009 that has played for New England and Carolina. Martin is 27 years old, a former 6th-round choice in 2006 that has played for Green Bay, the New York Giants, Baltimore and New England. McCann is 24 years old and played college ball at SMU and in the NFL with Baltimore and Dallas. Walker is 31 years old a former 6th-round choice in 2003 that has played for the N.Y. Giants, Baltimore, Green Bay, Minnesota, Tennessee and Dallas.

On Monday, the Chiefs worked out former Packers offensive lineman Sampson Genus, who played center in Green Bay. He’s 24 years old, 6-foot, 315 pounds out of South Florida.

NFL – fined Denver head coach John Fox $30,000 and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio $25,000 for their behavior towards the replacement officials during week No. 2 when Denver played Atlanta.

Indianapolis – lost WR Austin Collie for the rest of the season due to a torn patella tendon in his right knee; promoted WR Nathan Palmer from the practice squad.

N.Y. Jets – placed CB Darrelle Revis (knee) on the injured-reserve list; re-signed LB Bryan Thomas; released DT Marcus Dixon, DB Donnie Fletcher, OT Dennis Landolt.

San Diego – released DB Greg Gatson; re-signed OL Reggie Wells.

Tampa Bay – placed DE Adrian Clayborn (knee) on the injured-reserve list.

    Every time the Chiefs bring in someone with ties to NE, I shudder. Pioli is a homer with all things NE, probably what has made him look so stupid. He seems unable to untie the apron strings from NE, how many have passed thru KC and are stars??

    If they bring in an O-line player, perhaps Genus, I wonder if they would put Hudson on the new IR Recall list. He could be back in eight weeks instead of the entire year. Hopefully his injury is not season ending. I guess they could pick any of the three injured, but it sounds like Hudson has the most serious injury.

    I agree that Fox and Del Rio were over the top with the refs; had they been basketball coaches they would probably have drawn techs. But to fine them that much? Have the NFL owners gone off the track?

    I’m not sure the owners are seeing the train wreck that’s coming.

    Did the two Monday refs get fined? Take your pick; they are either blind, or stupid or they threw the game. No option is good.

    Where is the replay official? They’re in a different union, not locked out. That guy is a regular. Are they trying to make the fill-ins look bad? How many replay reversals last Sunday? A bunch. But Monday night has big audience.

    I don’t think there is a thing the players, their union or the fans can do about this. The owners won’t give. Why should they? TV revenue keeps coming in.

    The only solution I can see is if the TV networks step in and insist upon a resolution. And why should they? Hell, from now on the no fans and half fans will start watching for, not football, but bad calls.

    The owners, the guys with all of the money, will win again. Sound familiar? Players will get hurt and fans will get pissed but the Hunt’s and their friends will just get richer. Listen close and you can hear them gloating.

    Geeez, I think I’m switching to suffleboard. It’s not on TV.

    Pro football is in its heyday. It can do no wrong. The owners are stumbling over cash at every turn.

    The question is, can they screw it up enough to ruin it all for themselves and the fans. It is bigger than KC, it is the whole league.

    Can they screw it up? Yep. When I was twelve I loved wrestling. I went and cheered and booed. It was great.

    When I was 17 I loved boxing. I even went foolish and went Golden Gloves. Beaten to a pulp most of the times, I still thought it was great.

    I was a great Royals fan in the 70′s and 80′s. Man, it was great.

    In the 70′s I was a NBA fan. Thought it was great.

    They screwed those up. I’m sure they can ruin the NFL.

    All it takes is wanting more money coming in and less money going out.

    If you close your eyes when they hit you, no reason to be in Golden Gloves.

    Reeves place on IR. Who do they get to add to the roster? DB? RB? we know how the Chiefs love TEs.
