Kyle Turley Signs with the Kansas City Chiefs (Again)

New, comments

Via ESPN:

Clearly, the eight-year veteran had plenty of rust in 2006 and it didn't help that he attempted to play with his weight in the 280s. There are tight ends in the NFL bigger than that, and the tough-guy Turley was tossed around at times by defensive linemen he would have handled easily in the prime of his career.

But Turley has built his weight back up and was 302 pounds and is said to be motivated to make up for lost time.

This guy is the Michael Bennett of our offensive line. If he can just stay healthy for a season, he still has potential to be a force. One of my concerns last year was Turley's low playing weight yet I defended his toughness, saying that he had great potential to fill a big void left by Willie Roaf. Now, I just hope the guy can make it through one season without getting injured.

On another note, the Chiefs leave for River Falls, WI, today to begin their 2007 training camp. Let us know in the comment section if you'll be attending and if you can (hopefully) send some pictures in.
