Default K. Bell asked to restructure..

Chiefs | Team looking to redo Bell's contract
Sat, 18 Feb 2006 15:08:07 -0800

The Sports Xchange reports the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to do something with LB Kendrell Bell, who will count more than $7.2 million against the team's 2006 salary cap after experiencing an unproductive first season in Kansas City last year. Bell could well end up being a cap casualty.

IF he ends up being a cap casualty, should the Steelers go after him?

No suprise. If he could have only stayed healthy.

I thought he stayed healthy all year this year?

Every Chiefs game I watched he was a total non-factor.

I had heard that he has some degenerative shoulder problems.

Whatever it is, he never seemed to match his rookie success.....not even really close.

When I stated "If he could have only stayed healthy", I meant when he was with us. He could have been one hell of an LB. It's a shame.

$7.2m against the cap? For an LB? That's insane.

It's our system that makes the LB's look good. Kirkland, Flowers, Gildon, sure they were skilled players but they thought they were irreplaceable and worth much more than they were.

What worries me is that we are doing the same thing with Porter that we did with the above players we had to let go. Porters at $5m.

All I have to say about Porter is .... back to back sacks on Manning. I think he's worth the money they're paying him. He brings more than just skill to the field. He's a locker room leader.

It's easy to sack the QB when you are unblocked. All for the salary cap killing price of $5m.

Say goodbye to Randel El. We got Joey!

He'll be gone after next year anyway. No choice, salary cap wise.

Injuries can take down anyone. I believe Bell thought he was rushed back from his pre-season ankle injury in 2002 and never trusted the Steelers' on medical matters after that season, which in part led to his long absences in 2004.

I recall he was a monster in the Cleveland playoff game and then, probably due to playing on a numbed ankle the week before, could not go in the Titans game the next week. He was never really an impact player after that.

Bell's career is an example of the dangers of overpaying for FAs and how a young player's promise can quickly blow away.
