58 Signed players for the Chiefs 2012 season. Eric Winston is the coup!
Head coach Romeo Crennel, just as Todd Haley did, is involved in the personnel process this time of the year. But Romeo’s season begins in August. Pioli’s began with the final gun of the season’s final game in Denver.
Since he grabbed the keys to the Chiefs bus, the team has re-signed LB Cory Greenwood and TE Jake O’Connell. They’ve brought in S Kyle McCarthy as a street free agent and this week, Pioli got a deal done with free agent CB Stanford Routt. There are 49 players on the roster for 2012, or at least 49 that the public has been informed about. With an 80-man roster limit, nearly 20 players who will become free agents in three weeks and draft choices to prepare for, there’s a lot of important work that remains to be done.
