    good signing for a team that a difficulty tackling. Little on the old side but definitely a good signing.

    Did we ever show any interest in him this offseason?

    A homecoming, sort of for Edwards. Too bad he has Herm as his coach.

    I'm not sure, so far the Chiefs have signed a career underachiever (Harris) and a player in the twilight of his career (Edwards) to boost a team that many think to be fading.

    Sounds like a panic move to me.

    good signing, I guess. A lot of people on this board wanting Edwards, but we don't need more aging LB's. Instead, the Pats need to draft LB and gets some youth and speed on this team.

    He'll be done after two years, and it's going to cost the Chiefs $11.5 million. Carl Peterson and Herm Edwards are operating under The Big Top out there.

    Posters denigrate the ILBs that are available this year. They are wrong when talking bout Patriots type ILBs. There are three good ones and a good developmental one as well. Most scouts evaluate from a 4-3 perspective and size versus speed is not as important. But Bill's 3-4 needs both size, speed, and LB instincts. Most years the ILBs are 6'0" and 230 pounds the run 4.70 or more. Demeco Ryans was 6-1 225 and not likely to get much bigger taken in the top of the second round last year.

    The first ILB drafted last year with a 3-4 size, was Schlecter from OSU who was 6'0 250 and ran a 4.82; he went early in the third round to Eric Mangini's Jets.

    By comparison this year area s big but much much faster. Willis was 6-1+ and 240 and ran a 4.49. Harris at 6-2 245 ran a 4.55; and Zak DeOsssie at 6-4 250 ran at 4.58. Posluzny at 6-1+ and 238 ran a 4.65. All four have smarts, lateral quickness, and a LB mentality. All are instinctive football athletes that would excel in a 3-4 lineup.

    Most years there are no ILBs that fit that description. I could see the Pats both having a need, and the draft picks to pick up a pair of these guys.

    I actually rank them for the Pats 3-4 as follows: Harris, Willis &/or Posluzny (tie) and then DeOssie. Bur DeOssie is still a first day selection from a 3-4 perspective.

    Does this have any impact on Kendrell Bell being released / traded?

    They have brought in 2 LBs it must mean they are not thrilled with their cuurent group.

    edwards is the best coverage LB in the nfl , but sucks vs the run, kc basically just got a FS to play LB, but they're familiar with the type of player he is so it's cool with them.

    i can't wait till LT runs him over in at least 2 games in 07

    Eh well. Thought we'd make a run at this guy, but thought wrong.

    I too now believe him to be an old, undersized, overrated LB who would never be useful in the Pats' system. Whew. Dodged a perrenniel pro-bowl bullet that time.
