Bonecrusher in the Fold

On Friday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs agreed to terms with second round draft pick, safety Bernard Pollard. By signing the Purdue standout agreed to a four-year contract, the Chiefs only have three players left to get under contract before the team heads north to River Falls.

In recent years the Chiefs have done an outstanding job getting players signed before the start of training camp. By signing Bernard Pollard a week before the start of two-a-days, the Chiefs made a statement that they expect big things from their hard-hitting safety.

Pollard brings a reputation as a player who likes to mix it up. He's a physical presence that should be able to get on the field and make an impact early this season.

In fact, Pollard should see action in short yardage and goal line situations because of his ability to support the run and attack the line of scrimmage. With his hard-nosed hitting style, it's a given that Pollard will make an immediate impact on special teams right away

In OTA's, Pollard has shown exceptional speed and looks very comfortable on the field. He'll push veteran Sammy Knight for playing time.

In other Chiefs news:

should be signed before the Chiefs depart for River Falls next week. Contract talks are at a stage where both sides feel that a deal can get done quickly once a few first round draft picks sign.

DE Kamerion Wimbley (Browns) the 13th pick and Brodrick Bunkley (Eagles) the 14th could both sign as early as next week and that will help the Chiefs slot the final contract numbers for Hali.

Brodie Croyle probably won't be signed until the first part of next week. The two sides are still trying to iron out the final numbers. Despite the fact Croyle lasted until the middle part of the third round, quarterbacks no matter where they're selected generally are difficult contracts to get done.

Jarrad Page contract situation could get dicey for the Chiefs. The Anaheim Angels who selected him in the seventh round of June's MLB draft are contemplating increasing their offer to lure him away from the NFL. If they offer him dollars equal to those for a first or second rounder, then the Chiefs would not be in a position to match those kinds of dollars.

Ty Law continues to be a hot topic with the Chiefs but it's very unlikely any movement will happen over the weekend but we expect some news by Monday or Tuesday about where he might end up. As of now, Law has standing offers from Kansas City and New England.

Where will Law end up?
