I thought the words sounded nice but ultimately figured Vrabel would hit the free agent market and sign on with a winner since his career is in the twilight stages. He's only been part of the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots, both big winners, so staying in Kansas City wouldn't make much sense.
Maybe that's the case, but Vrabel still seems willing to return to the Chiefs according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star.
"Hopefully," Vrabel told Teicher of returning in 2010. "There’s a desire by both parties to get something done. I’d love to come back here and be a part of getting this thing turned around. Walking out of here after my 13th year, I feel pretty good. I feel I’ve still got some football left."
"I love the players. I love the linebackers. I love playing for (linebackers coach) Gary Gibbs. I thought he did a great job with the linebackers."
Vrabel has less than three months to free agency so we'll see if a deal gets done. For now, though, Vrabel has retreated to his home in Ohio.
