Five-time Pro Bowl guard and 2010 NFL Man of the Year Award winner Brian Waters could be looking for new job at the end of the summer.
Pro Football Weekly credits team sources that say Waters “might be nearing” the end of his time with the team. And that Waters could be released “soon.”
The Chiefs like backup Jon Asamoah, who makes $3 million less than Waters. The news doesn’t come as a huge shock because we’ve read previously that Waters would have to compete to keep his starting job. Waters is part of the NFLPA Executive Committee. Fair or not, Waters may wonder like NFLPA* President Kevin Mawae whether that helps his marketability to teams.
Still, leaders like Waters don’t come along every day. Replacing his presence on a young roster isn’t as simple as finding someone who is a comparable run blocker.
