Keeping Chambers key for Kansas City

INDIANAPOLIS -- Thursday, Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli said that the team has been in contact with their prospective free agents and the team wants to keep many of them.

The focal point of the Chiefs’ own free agency class is receiver Chris Chambers. He was a fantastic addition to the team after he was claimed off waivers by San Diego. In nine games with Kansas City, Chambers had 36 catches for 608 yards and four touchdowns. In seven games for San Diego, Chambers had nine catches for 122 yards and one touchdown.

He quickly became Matt Cassel's favorite target. He is a key for Kansas City moving forward.

So it is no surprise that the scuttlebutt at the combine is that the Chiefs and Chambers’ agent are working hard to get an extension done. Pioli wasn’t specific about any of his players Thursday, but he did say his own free agents are important. In my mind, none are more important than Chambers. So, it makes sense that these two sides are working to get a deal done.
