Kansas City Chiefs players were at the complex for the club's final meeting today and collected some of their things as the offseason officially starts. That included G Brian Waters, who actually spoke to the media.
Waters hadn't spoken with the media since June 5th after a rocky offseason that left a bitter taste in the mouths of a lot of folks.
Here are a few things he had to say, courtesy of Bob Gretz of BobGretz.com:
"It’s a new year. It’s 2010. All things from ‘09 are old news."
"From where we started to yesterday, we definitely saw some growth," said Waters. "I wouldn’t say there was considerable growth, because we didn’t get enough wins. But I think you saw some growth and I think it’s something people should be optimistic about."
And finally speaking on his silence this season:
"With all the stuff in the off-season, I just wanted to stand out of the way and just do my job and allow this whole situation to show itself," Waters said. "I didn’t want to get in the way. I wanted people to see this program for themselves. I didn’t want to be in the middle of it. I didn’t want to be a distraction. It was a good year for me to focus on my own job and working with some of these young guys to get better."
