The Chiefs signed cornerback Javier Arenas and running back Dexter McCluster on Wednesday. This qualifes as great news for many people.
Arenas and McCluster have realized a life’s dream and have achieved financial security. Chiefs coach Todd Haley gets two of his most promising rookies into training camp on time. Offensive coordinator Charlie Weis gets a versatile playmaker to play with in McCluster. And the Chiefs’ entire defense is gaining an identity with a young, exciting secndary.
Finally, the internet hacks at PFT now have two less rookie signings to write up.
