Wyche: Chiefs Could be Activating WR Lance Long This Week

Chiefs_add_former_cardinals_wr_lance_long_release__mediumThe Kansas City Chiefs acquired wide receiver Lance Long off waivers and promptly placed him on the practice squad.   Two weeks later and the team is reportedly looking into activating him to the 53 man roster.

A credit to Long or a shot at the Chiefs current crop of receivers?  We're not quite sure but two receivers, Dwayne Bowe and Quinten Lawrence, were not active last week.

NFL.com's Steve Wyche reports that the former Arizona Cardinals receiver is highly regarded by head coach Todd Haley and, citing a team source, the Chiefs may be calling him up to add a spark to the offense.

What's interesting is that the Chiefs actually looked into trading for Long in the offseason.

Haley thought so highly of the diminutive Long that the Chiefs actually discussed during the preseason trading a seventh-round pick to the Cardinals for Long — an offer that was rebuffed, according to the source.

There you have it, Chiefs fans.  Another day and it appears another roster move may be coming soon.  If Long is indeed activated, a player currently on the 53 man roster will be released or, depending on eligibility, placed on the practice squad.
