Falcons Williams visits Chiefs


The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs have desperate needs at several positions, but their first free-agent visitor plays in a spot where they appear set.

Atlanta linebacker Demorrio Williams arrived Friday to meet with Chiefs officials. If they sign Williams, 27, he could replace Napoleon Harris as a starter.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs missed out on one of their two top free-agent priorities, and it appeared they would fail to get the other, too. New Orleans center Jeff Faine signed with Tampa Bay on Friday shortly after the market opened.

Seattle kicker Josh Brown appeared ready to sign with the Rams.

The Chiefs look content, at least for now, to fill their offensive-line vacancies through the draft and with candidates already on their roster: Herb Taylor, Anthony Alabi, Adrian Jones, Rudy Niswanger and Will Svitek.

They have journeyman kickers Billy Cundiff and Nick Novak on their roster and could re-sign veteran John Carney, an unrestricted free agent.

The Chiefs hoped to visit with Buffalo tight end Michael Gaines and Dallas cornerback Jacques Reeves. Gaines could arrive for a meeting with the Chiefs as soon as today and Reeves could visit next week, assuming he doesn t sign elsewhere first.

He was meeting with the Texans in Houston on Friday and has other visits scheduled.

The Chiefs also revived their effort to trade unhappy safety Greg Wesley, who was replaced as a starter last season by Jarrad Page. They offered Wesley to the Broncos, asking for cornerback Karl Paymah, a restricted free agent.

The Broncos, who talked with the Chiefs about a deal for Wesley last year, refused.

Linebacker looked to be about the last place the 4-12 Chiefs would look for help. They signed Harris and Donnie Edwards last year to join Derrick Johnson in the starting lineup.

But the Chiefs are concerned about Edwards advancing age. He will be 35 in April.

And they are more concerned about the disappointing play of Harris.

The Chiefs would probably move Edwards to middle linebacker if they sign Williams, who would take Edwards spot on the outside.

The Chiefs are looking at the 277-pound Gaines as a possible replacement for Jason Dunn, who will soon be released.

Dunn was the Chiefs second tight end but played frequently and was a powerful blocker.

Gaines, who will be 28 later this month, also is a strong blocker. He caught a career-high 25 passes last season.

Reeves, 25, was a starter last season for the first time in his four-year NFL career.

He would compete with any cornerbacks the Chiefs might draft for a starting position.

Yeah, this board really has flipped out.

Why are quotes from other threads showing up in this thread?

Because i copied my whole reply with quotes before Swift deleted the thread. I just wanted to clarify that it was Boley that we placed the 1st round tender on, not D'mo. ;)

Oh yeah thats right.
