Terrance Copper Returning To Chiefs With Three-Year Deal

While preparing for the Kansas City Chiefs free agency, I said WR Terrance Copper should be one of the Chiefs "must-keep" players mainly because of his special teams skills.

Every once in a while, I get one right. Copper's agent says he'll return to the Chiefs on a three-year contract. Four other teams expressed interest in him but he wanted to finish what he started in KC.

The deal is almost official. These contracts can be negotiated but they can't actually be signed until 5:00 p.m. (Arrowhead time) on Friday night. 

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli said today at his news conference that, philosophically, the organization wants to keep a lot of their own free agents. Copper is one of the best special teams players on the team (and occasionally catches a 50-yarder against the Broncos) so there was no real reason to get rid of him. 

This will be Copper's third year with the Chiefs after coming over from the Ravens before the 2009 season.
