Originally posted by MUTigermaskI really hope KC hurries up and picks up a nose tackle since both guys they had signed elsewhere, leaving a 6th round rookie at the position. Franklin from SF is the only FA that plays the position I know. Is Cullen Jenkins a NT?
They signed NT Kelly Gregg, according to Rotoworld.
I don't understand the Kasay/Mare deal at all. Kasay has more attempted field goals than Mare has successful ones. Mare is only 3 years younger, and paying him at least $5M more. Also, Kasay just got resigned, like last year. Also, he's 7th in kicks converted, 8th in points scored, and tied for 2nd in FGs from 50+ yds.
There's no reason we couldn't have picked up a kicker in a year or two, have them do kick-offs until Kasay retired, then have them do both.
It's the fame and fortune of stars that makes baseball and basketball sports of declining interest. Football is more of an "everyman" kind of game, where selfishness is not rewarded but rather frowned upon (sort of).
