Halioli kicks another 2008 Chief to the curb
The Chiefs have traded defensive lineman and sleep apnea sufferer Tank Tyler for a fifth-round pick.
Tyler’s departure brings to 25 the number of players who suited up for final game of the 2008 season but would get turned away by security if they showed up Arrowhead today.
The dizzying number of trades and releases reflect a lack of regard for the talent evaluation skills of the former regime, headed by Carl Peterson and Herm Edwards. Seemingly every week, the new guys, G.M. Scott Pioli and head coach Todd Haley, eject a player from a roster that Edwards laughably declared “85 percent” complete before he coached what turned out to be his final game in Kansas City.
Here’s a breakdown of the departed:
Tyler Thigpen (Miami)
Tony Gonzalez (Atlanta)
