Saturday Open Thread

Not too much going on in the NFL world today. Jay Cutler has been traded. The draft is just under a month away.

Use this as an open thread for the day, discussing whatever Chiefs and NFL related topics you'd like.

Here are a couple of articles to get you going today.

From Bob Gretz:

Although there are two sides playing out on this story, Bears offensive coordinator Ron Turner and Cutler have met before, and it didn’t go well. Coming out of Heritage Hills High School in Indiana, Cutler wanted to play at the University of Illinois. The Illini supposedly recruited him. The head coach there at the time was Turner. But when Cutler visited the school in December of his senior year, his family says he was told the scholarship offer had been rescinded because Illinois wanted to sign a hotshot quarterback out of Illinois.

I'm still surprised that WR Torry Holt hasn't caught on anywhere yet. Must be his asking price?

McGuire brokered the deal to get another ex-Ram, Orlando Pace, to the Bears on Thursday but Holt is focusing on the Titans and Jacksonville, where he has also visited. There is no rush. The situation could take its time to play out and that is what Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he expected to happen.

Once a Raider, always a Raider.

Former Los Angeles Raiders quarterback Todd Marinovich is back in jail.

Authorities say the 39-year-old Marinovich was arrested Friday after missing a drug rehabilitation progress review in a Newport Beach court earlier this week. He was being held at the Orange County Jail without bail.
