Chiefs DE Wallace Gilberry Turning It Up Entering Contract Year

New, comments

Sometimes I think it's a coach's dream to have players that are entering contract years -- or the final year of their contract. For many, most notably Albert Haynesworth, it means you take your game to another level in order to secure that next big paycheck.

Wallace Gilberry is entering the final year of his deal and is cognizant of the importance of it.

"I'm going into my contract year, so it's not really much of an offseason to me. I'm kind of in extra grind mode to go out there and improve and put a stamp on my brand. So there's a lot of work going on, but I'm having fun doing it."

He said the game has "slowed down" for him this year and because of that it gives him some time to host a camp for kids, which is what he's doing next weekend.
