If it wasn't clear before that the Kansas City Chiefs would be tweaking their offense under new head coach Romeo Crennel and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Eric Winston makes it crystal clear in a passage for Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback.
Winston wrote about his free agency experience on SI.com, which you can read here. The whole thing is a must-read but I found this part interesting about his KC visit:
When I spoke with the coaches I was pleasantly surprised. The head coach, Romeo Crennel, has a great reputation around the league. Knowing that a new offense was being installed had me wondering what kind of offense would be coming in. The offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll, has traditionally run more of a "power or gap" blocking scheme and the line coach, Jack Bicknell Jr., who just came over from the Giants, has done the same. Now, I feel like I could be successful in any scheme, but I really have grown to love running the zone scheme and understand it well. So going in I wasn't expecting to hear that the Chiefs would run a zone-blocking scheme, but that's exactly what I heard. That was like icing on the cake to what had been an already positive visit. I spent one more night in Kansas City and we worked out a contract to make me a Chief for the next four years.
Very good stuff. I like that he had such an interest in what was the best fit for him and it wasn't exclusively about money. Definitely check out the piece.
