The Kansas City Chiefs continue to be mentioned as a possible landing spot for pass rusher Kamerion Wimbley. That’s not surprising given that the Chiefs tied for the third-worst team in total sacks in the 2011 NFL season. The growth of Justin Houston near season’s end provides room for hope and Tamba Hali will always get his share of sacks, but the team could use another pass rusher and Wimbley fits the bill.
That said, the former Raiders linebacker has other teams interested, including the Tennessee Titans. Yet Adam Caplan says that Wimbley left today without a contract.
He writes, “Kamerion Wimbley had a good visit with the Titans today. Is set to leave today without signing a deal, but will make a decision on what to do next (pursue something with Titans or take more visits) over the next few days.”
Wimbley has a history with Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel and that could be enough to bring him to KC for a visit. The Chiefs could use an additional pass rusher either way, but the announcement of Peyton Manning’s choice of the Denver Broncos certainly raises the ante as well.
Wimbley had 7 sacks last season for the Raiders and has 42.5 in his six-year NFL career.
