"I don't know if we want to shoot all our guns in the first team talk because we don't have everybody," he said. "We'll get to get some more guys into the mix, at least (in meetings). ... Those guys will then be around. They just won't be able to do much."

Wiegmann, Breaston and the other free agents who signed Friday can go to meetings and can watch practice, but can't participate in practice or go through conditioning sessions until Aug. 4.

The Chiefs drafted Asamoah in the third round last year out of Illinois, and the team liked him almost immediately. He's a quiet and driven youngster who showed the necessary chops to someday be a starter.

Not long after he heard that Waters was out, Asamoah's thinking changed. He was sad to see Waters go, but this was his first real chance.

"The pressure's on your back," he said, "so it's a good feeling."

In limited team snaps, the Chiefs initial pairing featured Jon Asamoah playing opposite Lilja. Asamoah has the ability to play both guard positions, but the Chiefs focused his efforts on the right side throughout much of 2010. Lilja has previous experience on the left side from his time with the Colts.

The Washington Post is reporting the first steps in what will inevitably happen in every locker room or clubhouse around the NFL early in training camps as they open and players come together. One of the key stipulations of the new labor deal was that the players needed to recertify their union and it seems the Chiefs are helping to lead that charge.
