Chiefs FA Target: Vernon Gholston

With the retirement of Mike Vrabel earlier this week, the Kansas City Chiefs have a hole to fill on defense. Sure they have a solid in-house candidate and a 2011 draft pick to take his place. But why not take a flyer on this guy?

He's a former first round draft pick with so much talent that it was near impossible to imagine that after three NFL seasons, this man hasn't registered a single sack. More so when you consider his work ethic, his age (26) and he's in peak physical condition, one has to wonder what the heck is wrong with Vernon Gholston?

Forgetting the lack of sacks and being forced to play under the fire of his former New York Jets Head Coach, Rex Ryan. And that fact he was drafted as a defensive end that was forced to play outside linebacker, the 2008 first round draft pick never found his groove playing in the Big Apple.

At this point nobody can dispute, that Gholston is a first round bust. And with the lack of sacks to this point, the fact that he's registered just 42 tackles in the three NFL seasons, it's easy to support my claim.

So why am I suggesting that the Chiefs make a run for Gholston?

Because they have the defensive coordinator who just might be able to get more out of him than Ryan did in New York the past two seasons.

?Last year Romeo Crennel worked miracles with the Chiefs defense. In 2010, players such as Glenn Dorsey, Wallace Gilberry, Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali, Brandon Carr and rookie Eric Berry, lived up to expectations and for the most part had solid NFL seasons for the Chiefs.

And that's because, Crennel is one of the best defensive minds in the game. In thus in his search to find a new NFL team, Gholston would be hard pressed to find another defensive coordinator that might be able to find the key to unlock his potential.

At the moment, the Chiefs are a bit thin at outside linebacker. With Vrabel out of the picture, Andy Studebaker would appear to be first in line to take his place on the field.

As insurance to that, the Chiefs drafted Justin Houston in last April's draft. And I could argue vehemently, that the Georgia product should start opposite Hali this season.

However, that's not my call. But General Manager Scott Pioli, who has a long contract battle ahead with Hali because he's seeking Jared Allen type of dollars, has been rumored to have lukewarm interest in Gholston.

Regardless if that interest is much higher than that, one can see why Pioli might be willing to give the former Jet a chance on a one-year incentive laden deal.

If Hali leaves after this season and is unable to come to terms with the Chiefs on that fat new contract he desires, then the Chiefs have to search under every rock to find another outside linebacker that can compete for a starting job in 2011 and beyond.

That's why I'm trumpeting the horn that the Chiefs take a flyer on the former Ohio State Buckeye. And how ironic would it be if Gholston became a starter this year for Kansas City, replacing the man that just went back to his Alma Mater to become the teams new linebackers coach.

And I bet if you ask any Chiefs fan about that swap, I can't imagine a single fan wouldn't be willing to trade the aging Vrabel for a player like Gholston.
