    Thomas Jones signs with the Chiefs

    Another Patriots offshoot sets up its RBBC:

    Thomas Jones gets $3 million in 2010, $2 million in 2011 from the Chiefs | ProFootballTalk.com

    Keeping Chambers and getting Jones. Now the Chiefs need to improve the line and tight end position and, if Bowe decides to get his act together, K.C. could actually have an offense worth watching.

    Good for KC , I still think he has some gas in the tank, and that's cheap for a good RB.

    Just happy the Jets weren't able to re-sign, he was their offense last year.

    Very true...and with some good coordinators now in KC - they might even beat SD once which could knock them down in playoff conference seating. Even better if they could beat Raiders once or twice in 2010 which will help the position of the former Raiders first round draft pick which NEP's own. Lets go Patriots West oops -I mean Go KC!

    He wont get near 1000 yards sharing carries with Jamal Charles that is for sure.

    Good move for the Chiefs. If they can improve that O-Line and get some receivers to work with Cassel other than Chambers, I don't see how that offense can't be accounted for.

    Perfect fit for them IMO, and a good price too.

    Great pick up for the Chiefs. If they can just get that O-line fixed, a good receiving TE, and some receivers, that offense might be good.....

    ;)

    I really wanted the Patriots to get TJones. I mean, $3mill this year, and $2mill next year is a STEAL for a 1400yd RB!

    He would've been our #1 RB, with LM taking some snaps..

    Rats!

    How about putting a bid for Washington (Jets). This would push Jets to pay him, as Jets are not about to let him go, now..

    That's the whole point. He doesn't have to go over 1,000 yards. He has to play well to compliment Charles and that's that.

    The Kansas City Patriots.. err I mean Chiefs are doing OK it seems.

    Good. Denver and KC getting stronger only helps cement Raiders 2011 #1 pick as a top ten;)

    I think this only helps Jamal Charles who is more of a change of pace back by limiting his touches he should stay fresh because I just can't see him as a feature back.

    Tell ya what, Charles DOMINATED near the end of last year when he was given the starting gig, I had him on a fantasy team(FA pickup like week 12).
    I don't think he would hold up to a full season of that bashing, so it should help the team, but hurt HIM as a player because he probably won't see the big contract he was probably hoping for.

    It hurts Jones and Charles in FF next year that's for sure. :bricks:

    As a chiefs fan, i really like the signing. We get a great back to spell charles.

    Also, it does get a lil annoying that we are trying to be the new arizona patri-chiefs, but whatever makes the chiefs better is ok

    oh sorry to hear about watson and baker. Im a chiefs fan first and pats fan 2nd so i hope your other tes can step up.

    Cassel has proven he's top 10 starting QB in this league when surrounded by good weapons - the RBs will help, but quality wideouts must be added. He's a very likable guy and I think a lot of Patriot fans here still root for him.

    That offensive line sucked ass last year, too. O'Callaghan was, far and away, the best RT the team put on the field last season.

    That's not a good thing, given his lack of playing time in New England.

    I think they have some quality at WR...the OL is what they need to get back to the playoffs.

    Cassel was pretty inconsistent here but he did show flashes. He made 1 or 2 plays a game that made me go WOW. He had a hard time throwing the deep ball. Was that a problem when he was in NE?

    As a follow up to your post and mine, the Chiefs just signed 37 year old Casey Weigmann to compete at the center position. Niswanger was absolutely brutal at the position last season.

    His touch on the deep ball is not great. It didn't help in K.C. that Bowe isn't really able to get deep separation. You probably noticed that his deep throws looked a lot better once Chambers arrived on the scene.

    It is possible that behind KCs O line that TJ will revert back to the 2007 TJ that we all thought was washed up when he played behind a bad Jets O line.

    Chambers stepped in nicely when we got him and i think he can be a solid 2 for a few more years. Bowe i like, but it seems he can only catch a ball when hes triple covered, which is nice, but you gotta catch the easy ones too. Wade was pretty solid but we put him at pr and he was TERRIBLE. We have lance long, the castaway from arizona. Hes pretty speedy but he has bad hands and is tiny.

    The oline was god awful but it got better towards the end of thw season. Haley made albert lose some weight because he wanted him to rely on technique rather than being big. He struggled early on but got better. Im very comfortable with him at LT going forward. Waters was good at times/ bad at times. Niswanger the C is really bad. Idk why we still have him. Thatll prob change come draft day. Rg was average. Ocallaghan was below average.

    If we draft okung i will be sligtly mad, but itll make the line betrer. Im hoping we can get berry, because our safeties need help. Mike brown is literally the worst safety ive ever watched. He probably cost our team at least 10 tds.

    The new regime had him drop a lot of weight and it took him a long time to regain his strength. They also made a lot of technique changes that took him a while to master. I wouldn't say that he's a bust. There have been rumors that the new regime views him as a guard or right tackle, rather than a left tackle, though.

    I touched on it in my previous post. Haley wanted him to use technique rather than to just "get in the way" so albert lost 30 lbs i believe. He struggled alot earlu on but improved the last 6 games or so. In now way is he a bust imo. I dint believe okung will be the pick.
