Report: Chiefs Negotiating With Chris Chambers

It's been awfully quiet around one of the Kansas City Chiefs most important unrestricted free agents. Though he was considered a priority for the Chiefs, Chambers hit the open market on Friday and reportedly drew some interest from the Cincinnati Bengals.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Chiefs are negotiating with Chambers to retain his services for the 2010 season (and maybe beyond).

As I've said before, gauging Chambers' trade value is difficult. His age (31) doesn't make him very attractive but the fact that he came on strong in the second half of the season after signing with the Chiefs suggests he's still got some left in the tank.

He was one of the Chiefs only deep threats in the 2009 averaging 16.9 yards per catch on 36 receptions.

Chambers' strong second half likely made him eager to check out the market for his services.

Florio also passes along that "there's a growing feeling in league circles that the Chiefs could be a surprise team in 2010" considering the year-to-year field of playoff teams experiences on average a 50% turnover rate.
