Chiefs | Battle should be ready to go physically; but is he in the team's plans?

Sat, 08 Apr 2006 13:21:24 -0700

Adam Teicher, writing for the Sporting News, reports Kansas City Chiefs CB Julian Battle (Achilles') should be ready physically when the Chiefs hold their first offseason practice next month. The lost 2005 season was costly for Battle, a player who played tentatively and with little confidence before the injury. The Chiefs clearly aren't counting on Battle any more and may draft a cornerback in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Chiefs | More on Replacing Battle

Sun, 19 Jun 2005 19:10:34 -0700

Elizabeth Merrill, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil said the team is not going to panic due to the loss of CB Julian Battle for the season. One free agent the Chiefs took a pass on last spring was CB Ty Law (Patriots). Law is still on the market, but Vermeil said it was unclear whether the Chiefs would do any more defensive shopping. Money or lack of it is the biggest issue for the Chiefs. Both Vermeil and president/general manager Carl Peterson have said that the Chiefs used up most of their cap space on free agents and trades. "We'll look," Vermeil said. "But I don't know what's out there - and then we'll also more deeply evaluate those young people we have. But we have time."

He was doing everything right and his focus was outstanding. He was becoming what we thought he was going to become even a year ago. He was on his way. Right now, I've got a pit in my stomach.
