It came down to the final moments, but the Chiefs were able to sign No. 1 pick Tamba Hali to a five-year deal, ensuring that the defensive end will be on time for the team’s training.
Kansas City flew to River Falls, WI Thursday, but won’t hit the practice field until sometime today. The Chiefs were also able to sign third-round selection Brodie Croyle. Heading into camp, both rookies figure to play a significant role in the team’s success. Hali is expected to see plenty of playing time in his rookie season. Croyle is in competition to be the backup for Trent Green.
Not joining the team for their flight were veterans Ty Law, Willie Roaf, and Priest Holmes. No timetable was given for either players arrival. Holmes is still waiting to be medically cleared from a neck injury suffered last season.
