Could Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters be on his way out of Kansas City? Could he land in Chicago?
According to the Kansas City Star, Chiefs guard Brian Waters and Tony Gonzalez, the team’s only Pro Bowlers last season, did not attend the team’s first mini-camp session Saturday morning at Chiefs headquarters. Brian Waters reportedly asked to be traded or released earlier in the off-season after a bad impression with the new staff.
Maybe the Bears could give up a draft pick to add a Pro Bowl offensive lineman in Waters, who can help not only newly acquired QB Jay Cutler, but also second year runner Matt Forte.
Waters was undrafted coming out of North Texas.The Chiefs picked him up in 2000 and he has been with the team for nine seasons. Waters has been selected to four Pro Bowls (2004, 2005, 2006, 2008) and was named All-Pro twice (2004, 2005).
I think it would be a good move for the Bears considering Roberto Garza wasn’t all that great last season, newly acquired Frank Omiyale has started one game in his career and Josh Beekman looks to be the heir apparent to Olin Kreutz at center.
I would think the Chiefs would try to trade Waters, and try to get a fourth or fifth rounder.
If not they’ll just release him and the Bears should scoop him up.
Do you want Brian Waters on the Bears?
