What The Chiefs Are Saying About Kyle Orton

The Kansas City Chiefs brass has making the rounds this week talking with the radio stations in town along with some local TV and the question we've heard the most is asking what the Chiefs will do with Kyle Orton and Matt Cassel.

The talking point seems to be that Orton, an unrestricted free agent, is not on the team anymore. And moving forward he will choose where he wants to go.

"Kyle did a very good job for us in those three games and no one who watched those three [games] can dispute that," Romeo Crennel told Kevin Kietzmann on 810 WHB's Between The Lines this week.

"Now he will have a choice in his free agency of choosing where he wants to go and so what we are going to do is evaluate personnel here over the next couple of weeks and prioritize our list of free agents who we would like to pursue and then go from there.

"Right now I am not able to tell you if Kyle...where Kyle is on that list. I can't tell you whether he is at the top of the list. I am not saying he is at the bottom of the list, but he will be on that list somewhere and then we'll make a decision after we compile the list."

But he's on the list....somewhere. Whether that's high or low, we don't know. But that Crennel says he's on the list indicates the Chiefs have at least some level of interest in retaining him.
