positions in need.....a look at the free agents available.

i am sitting here at the hospital, on my laptop, browsing on my favorite site and homepage (obviously Arrowhead pride) and was thinking about the positions in need for the chiefs. well Pro Football Weekly has a breakdown all the free agents by position, and i would like to share some with you.  BTW i realize that some of these might not be a position of need but might be interesting to look at anyway.

out of the free agent QB's, there is really nobody here i would want on my team as far as young QB's go.  i would, however, not mind seeing somebody like kurt warner or chris simms in a chiefs uniform. otherwise i would take my chances in the draft.

This is one that my not be a need but i think there might be some people to look at if LJ gets traded.  Brandon Jacobs is first on my list. a Big, strong, and tough runner, hey you cant go wrong there. and hes proven himself in the league.  so has Darren sproles.  i like Darren but i dont think hes leaving San Diego. i also like correll Buckhalter and Derrick ward.

maybe im just not seeing anybody else here and i think that Julius peppers is the only proven rusher on this list (feel free to correct me if im wrong) i would like to see peppers in a chiefs uniform but im not so sure it will happen.  but chances may be good if we go to a 3-4 or at least a hybrid 3-4 but still play 4-3.  i dont know just my opinion.

Tarrell suggs would be a good fit in Kansas City (IMO),  i like Karlos Dansby too.  and if you cant get either one  i would take a look at Kieth Brooking, Roosevelt Colvin, or even Takeo Spikes.

                Some positions i didnt put on here obviously but there are some interesting names out there.  for example:

Tony Richardson- wouldnt you love to see him back in Red and Gold?  even if it is for 1 season to retire a chief.

hank basket- to me he is kinda like wes welker. not afraid to split the middle of the field and take a hit, coulb be a gem in KC with him and TG in the middle.

Nnamdi Asomugha-  he is a very talented corner and if we can make Oakland's defense that much worse by stealing him away why not?

anyways these are some players that could help us with our positions in need.  dont forget to check out Pro Football Weekly to see every free agent at every position.   let me know who you think we should attempt to get.
