The Big Three are on track for 2012
. That's of course Tony Moeaki
, Eric Berry
and Jamaal Charles
. Charles previously indicated on his Twitter account he hoped to be ready for OTAs. The good thing about the injuries happening early in the year is that it gives these guys time to be ready for the following season. The Chiefs website interviewed Greg Cosell about the injuries, which you should check out.
Basically, we can't say for sure all these guys return at the level they were before.
Matt Cassel is progressing well.
We touched on this the other day and it was never really a concern but Cassel is throwing the ball and is healthy entering next season.
The Chiefs hope to bring back Le'Ron McClain
. I'm not sure this would be on the high priority list. That's not a knock on McClain but the Chiefs used him mostly as a fullback last season. I thought he would be a candidate to receive some carries when Jamaal Charles went down but that wasn't really the case. He had just 15 attempts last season. My guess is that he hits the market and, if the market softens on him as it did last year, the Chiefs could take a shot at bringing him back.
Thomas Jones "might retire"
. This isn't coming from the Chiefs -- it's from a Pro Football Weekly report
. Jones is turning 34 years old before next season starts so this is possible. But, either way, I'm not sure he comes back to the Chiefs. We'll see.
