Could DE Jimmy Wilkerson Come Back to the Chiefs?

There's no rumors floating. No news out there to grab onto with this one. So this is purely conjecture on my part. Still I have to wonder about a guy that we saw for years here at Arrowhead: Jimmy Wilkerson.

It's not that J-dub blew up the stat categories while he was here, so it wasn't a stupid move, per se, to watch Wilkerson get his release from the Chiefs three years ago this month. From 2003 to 2007, Wilkerson never had more than .5 (yes point five) sacks in a season or more than 24 tackles. Yet the last two years in Tampa Bay, Wilkerson had a combined 69 tackles and, more impressively, 11 sacks.

Schemes are everything in the NFL and the wrong guy quickly becomes the right guy when utilized properly. It seems that perhaps Wilkerson either needed time to grow (which many players do) or that it was a matter of not using him correctly. It was most likely a matter of both. Either way, Wilkerson's proved a couple things since he's been away.

He's visiting with the Rams today, so who's to say he'll even be available in the next hour or so. But if so, should he get a call from across the state of Missouri to talk about a second go-around in KC?
