I've been waiting for a good reason to post an offseason thread, and non-news about Tony Romo hasn't been it. I just deleted two paragraphs of rant about how that non-debate is manufactured, never gonna happen, and so on... but I don't want to add fuel to that fire.
We did finally get some interesting news though.
The Chiefs were awarded 4 compensatory picks for this year's draft, a 3rd rounder (pick 104), a 5th rounder (pick 182), and two 6th rounders (pick 218 and 220). This is made more interesting by the fact that teams can, unlike previous years, trade compensatory picks and the Chiefs should have a total of 10 picks. So, the draft ought to be very interesting this year for Chiefs fans.
Also, the Chiefs signed RB CJ Spiller. If you've been taking a nap for a couple years you'd think this was huge news. It's not, really. He hasn't been able to stay healthy or even get opportunities when he was. So, this is a low risk, potentially high reward move for a backup and role player. I could see him entirely missing the roster. I could see him being the #2 back and integral to our offense. I could see him getting hurt and not even getting a chance to do anything.
I don't think the Spiller signing says anything about Jamaal Charles one way or the other. If it speaks to anyone's future in KC it's Knile Davis or Charcandrick West.
