Per Burger Bill...I'm glad KC drafted Poe even more now.
The news is not as good in Kansas City. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Chiefs and Dontari Poe are “not close” to a contract. The Chiefs report to camp Thursday.
In the world of NFL contracts, two days is a long time, especially when deadlines are involved. Both Poe and the team know how important it is for him to be signed in time. Because of the new CBA, there really is no excuse for any rookie not to be signed. If Poe is not with the Chiefs when they begin practice later this week, it will be a mark on both the team and Poe.
The only other two rookies who are unsigned are Oakland guard Tony Bergstrom (third) and receiver Juron Criner (fifth). The Raiders open camp Monday.
