Toomer Feels It Was a Mistake To Go To Training Camp With the Chiefs

Veteran receiver Amani Toomer recently talked with Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com and admitted the likelihood that his career is finished.

Toomer was released by the New York Giants, the team he played 13 years for, and signed a one year contract with the Chiefs at the beginning of training camp.  He was released on September 1st, the first cutdown day.

Toomer feels like he shouldn't have even made the trip to Kansas City.

"I feel like it was a mistake going to Kansas City," Toomer told Marvez. "I played 13 years in a great organization like the Giants. I was in a preseason game with Kansas City and it felt like it wasn't pro football to me. It kind of made it easy for me (to walk away)."

Now, keep in mind that he isn't saying anything bad about the Chiefs.  It was pretty clear they were in a rebuilding phase at the time so Toomer's signing never really made sense in the first place.

I think Todd Haley knew what he brought to a locker room and would be a good fit for training camp.

Even if he had made the team and contributed, he would've always been a Giant.  Sorta like being a Falcons fans with Tony Gonzalez.
