Offensive lineman Turley closer to signing with team Chiefs notebook

By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs, in need of an experienced backup for left tackle Willie Roaf, may be close to a contract agreement with one in Kyle Turley.

Turley, who formerly played for the Saints and Rams, could also become a candidate to be the starter at right tackle.

“Both parties are speaking, so it’s just a matter of whether it can all get worked out,” coach Herm Edwards said. “Both parties are interested.”

The Chiefs suffered when Roaf missed six games with a hamstring injury last season. Turley was once a first-round draft pick with New Orleans.

Practicing with Vikings

After a one-year absence, the Chiefs will again practice at training camp against the Minnesota Vikings.

The teams will meet at Vikings camp in Mankato, Minn., for an evening practice on Aug. 4.

The Chiefs declined to practice against Minnesota last season because they believed the Vikings were undisciplined. The joint practices were frequently fight-filled, and the Chiefs had a player receive a serious injury in each of the previous two years while working against Minnesota.

But Edwards replaced Dick Vermeil as Chiefs coach, and the Vikings hired Brad Childress as the successor to the fired Mike Tice. The bad blood may have left with Vermeil and Tice.

“That’s not going to be a problem,” Edwards said. “I’ve talked to (Childress). He understands how we handle it. I know how he’s going to handle it. It’s going to be fine. I don’t foresee anything going astray.”

The Chiefs had talked with the Packers about joint practices. The Packers insisted that the sessions be held in Green Bay. The Chiefs weren’t willing to travel to the far corner of Wisconsin.

Friend of Hochevar

Royals top draft pick Luke Hochevar won’t be a total stranger when he comes to Kansas City. He’s a good friend of Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt.

The two are from the University of Tennessee. Colquitt was one of the first people Hochevar called after being selected by the Royals with the top pick in Tuesday’s amateur draft.

“He was excited,” Colquitt said. “He asked me if I was ready for a roommate. He said a deal would be worked out in a couple of weeks.

“The Royals are getting a steal. He’s had a year to get better, rest his arm. He’s a hard worker. He’ll do really well for them.”

If any team can revive Turley's career, it would be the Chiefs I suppose.

I was hoping the Raiders would take a look-see with this dude.
 
Guy was a wild man.

Wonder if he has anything left?

Who knows, but I thought I heard somewhere that he was considering a switch to D-Line? Either way, the Chiefs are probably risking very little and the potential upside is not to shabby for them. Good signing IMO.
