Apparently not. ESPN's BIll Williamson cites Tolbert's agent who says the visit to KC is still on.
Williamson says he can see how the Chiefs would want both backs but I don't agree with that. I think the strategy is to sign one or the other, not both. I don't want the Chiefs to do anything that results in Jamaal Charles touching the ball less. There are only so many carries to go around so I like having the extra running back, just not two of them.
I probably would've picked Tolbert but there's something to be said about a guy like Hillis is playing for the best motivator, which is dollar dollar bills, ya'll.
We'll see how this one plays out. I can remember a time when Stanford Routt's signing didn't signal the end of Brandon Carr in KC and...well, you know now.
