With Crennel In, McGinest to Chiefs Rumors Crop Up Again

Last summer, there were some rumors floating around that the Kansas City Chiefs could possibly take a look at free agent linebacker Willie McGinest. This was about the time that we started to realize the new regime's tendency to sign players with which they're familiar and McGinest, was a long-time New England Patriot  while Scott Pioli was there.

McGinest had said at one point that he is interested in returning to the game and would preferably return to a 3-4 defense.

The Boston Herald recently spoke with McGinest and they suggested Kansas City as a possible destination for McGinest.

Why Kansas City?

Well, the Chiefs connection and the 3-4 defense, as we talked about above, as well as McGinest's familiarity with new defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

McGinest played under Crennel during his stint with the Pats in the 90s as well as their run in the 2000s. In 2006, he then made the move to the Cleveland Browns, where Crennel was the head coach.

It doesn't sound like McGinest has much left but that doesn't mean the new regime wouldn't be interested because they've previously shown how much they value having solid veteran influences in the locker room.
