Default Amani Toomer: Kansas City didn't feel like pro football

Amani Toomer: Kansas City didn't feel like pro football


Amani Toomer spent his Friday morning fielding calls from football fans.

That's because he isn't waiting for his cell phone to ring from an NFL club.

Toomer — the New York Giants' career receiving leader — said that his 13-year career is almost certainly over after having not signed with a team since the regular season began. Toomer, 35, now hopes to start working in sports media.

"I think I'm done," Toomer said during a show we co-hosted together on Sirius NFL Radio.

Toomer set franchise records for catches (668), receiving yards (9,497) and touchdowns (54) while with the Giants from 1996 to 2008. Toomer also had a team-high six catches for 84 yards in a Super Bowl XLII upset of previously unbeaten New England.

After slumping late last year, Toomer wasn't re-signed in the offseason. He landed with Kansas City but was cut at the end of the preseason.

"I feel like it was a mistake going to Kansas City," said Toomer, citing the rebuilding process the Chiefs (3-7) are undergoing. "I played 13 years in a great organization like the Giants. I was in a preseason game with Kansas City and it felt like it wasn't pro football to me. It kind of made it easy for me (to walk away)."

Toomer, says he hopes to someday get honored by the Giants after the franchise opens its new football stadium in 2010.

It makes it easier to walk away when the locks are changed on the doors and the team doesn't tell you about it.

Hahahah, yeah. When you check your bank account and don't see a deposit in there from the Chiefs, then it's not hard to walk.

Didn't you know that you were going to a team in rebuilding mode, Amani? I guess not. Enjoy the rest of your life, Toomer...

Ask Chambers if he feels like he is on an NFL team. He just got done being a key role player in beating the defending Super Bowl Champions.

Better question is...if Toomer is so "above it" how did he not make a squad hurting as badly as the Chiefs are for WR talent.

He comes off like a whiny b**** here.

I think you'll find a better question is who the **** gives a **** about KC?

Who wouldn't want to go from a winning team to a losing team. I'm sure Chambers is having the time of his life.

KC was terrible during the preseason. We didn't get better until we got Chambers and O'Callaghan.

I do find it really funny that this comes out the week after KC beats the SB champs.

too bad the Chiefs didnt feel he was playing real NFL football...apparently no other NFL team does either, even for league minimum.

I think the issue is the market, you drive around Gay Cee and it's like you're in Memphis, Omaha, Birmingham, or any dumpy little southern middle level town... If the NFL was founded today Gay Cee wouldn't be on the list.

Hey, don't lump my hometown in with that ****hole of a city.

Oh, and Omaha is in the midwest too.

Detroit, Jacksonville, Baltimore, Buffalo, Cleveland and Oakland wouldnt have teams, either.

He's not. He's proving that the Chargers made a mistake though. He's playing like a legit number one WR.

Funny, you can thank Lamar Hunt for the fact that Denver has a franchise.

And you need a new map.
