Chiefs Keep Dumpster Diving In Oakland

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

One man’s trash is another’s treasure. What’s true in the world of celebrity relationships holds equal weight in the NFL. Just ask the Kansas City Chiefs who seem to sit outside of Reggie McKenzie’s office these days, eagerly awaiting the janitor to empty the trash.

After yesterday’s signing of Kevin Boss, a reported three-year deal valued at $9-million, the Chiefs have plundered two recent Raider castoffs. Stanford Routt was the first KC reclamation project. Enjoy all those yellow flags on Sundays, Addicts. Now Boss becomes the lasted contract tossed out of McKenzie’s window and into Romeo Crennel’s lap.

Boss will be a solid addition to the Chiefs’ double tight end sets. He didn’t have much of an impact in Oakland’s passing game but as a blocker Boss is a beast.

What you’ve got to love about the continued dumpster diving in Oakland is that so far the contracts offered to both Routt and Boss aren’t too far off from what they were given by Al Davis. Either Davis’ overspending was greatly exaggerated or NFL personnel departments are still copying the OG of modern football. Ok, so Davis’ overspending isn’t exactly overrated. After all that’s why so many players are ejected from Oakland are now finding work elsewhere. With all kinds of cap issues McKenzie has had no choice but to trim the fat.

So, what’s next for the Chiefs?

Well, the other shoe is set to drop on Kamerion Wimbley pretty soon. I’m sure he’d love to hop aboard the hobo express, a one-way train ride to Missouri. Boss seems excited about the Chiefs’ chances going forward and why not? By the time the Raiders are done ditching contracts, chances are Boss will be playing with many of the same men he saw in silver and black last season.

    haha yes a moron blogger.  I don’t even know where to begin I’m so excited.  
    1. its better then dumpster doing at a retirement home I bet the raiders will feel that at this year draft 
    2. oooo something about how the raiders went into free agency with only 600k in cap space and only have dropped enough contracts to sign a second rate kicker 
    3.  Boss and rout are both quality player and are finally in a quality franchise where they can shine 
    4.  The raiders will be lucky if they retain enough players to put on the field next season
    5.  With the added addition of hilis, the line of prospect the chiefs are entertaining, and how horrible the rest of the afc west is doing in free agency the chiefs are a pretty safe lock for 2012-2013 abc west champs.

    You’re kind stupid aren’t you?

    The Raiders re-signed Routt to a three-year, $31.5 million contract on February 24, 2011, / Routt signed a three-year, $19.6 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs
     
    On August 5, 2011, Boss signed a four-year contract worth $16 million with the Oakland Raiders. / Chiefs agreed to terms with TE Kevin Boss on a three-year, $9 million contract.
     
    and in both cases the players are STILL getting checks from the faiders. 
    God how I love watching the girls in black and silver spiral down the drain. Maybe you all will have a winning record in the next decade – but it won’t be anytime soon.
