Update 10:29PM: Chiefs are "leaning towards" signing Toomer. Updates and details to follow.
We've now nailed down all three of the wide receivers the Kansas City Chiefs secretly worked out this afternoon on Ramer Field in River Falls, WI.
Toomer is a 13 year vet. He played his entire career with the New York Giants after they chose him in the second round of the 1996 draft.
Of all the receivers, he's the one a lot of folks around here have been asking about. Plaxico Burress obviously has off-the-field issues as does Matt Jones. But Toomer brings with him a savvy veteran presence and a history of production.
In 2008, he caught 48 passes for 580 yards in 12 starts. In 2007 he caught 59 passes for 760 yards in 15 starts.
Chiefs connection with Toomer: None
Terrell is listed as 6'3", 215 pounds. He was the eighth overall pick in the 2001 draft by the Chicago Bears (the place where wide receivers go to die). He has few stats (128 receptions, 1,602 yards) and fewer starts (29) over his five year career.
He also played one season in Denver.
Chiefs connection with Terrell: Todd Haley was his wide receivers coach in Chicago from 2001-2003
Guard Edwin Harrison was released which means the Chiefs are back to 81 roster spots. Harrison sat out multiple practices (including 8/1 and 8/3) so his release shouldn't come as that much of a surprise.
