Ian Scott Could Be An Option In The Middle

A week after the San Diego Chargers released DT Ian Scott, a reader asked ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson if the veteran could end up in Kansas City.

It’s something the Chiefs could look at.  The Chiefs could use some veteran help in the middle of the defensive front.  But Scott is far from a unit-changing player.  He is a rotational player.  If the Chiefs feel like they are a little thin at the spot, Scott could be an option.  He was cut by the Chargers earlier in the week.

No one knows how Romeo Crennel feels about the players he has in the middle, but we do know there isn’t a lot of proven talent.  Ron Edwards has given more than anyone could have expected during his time in Kansas City, but after that it’s nothing but question marks.

That group includes free agent addition Shaun Smith, who spent time in Cleveland with Crennel.

Could one of the younger guys — Derek Lokey or UDFA Garrett Brown — make a run at some playing time?  Absolutely, but the Chiefs could decide before they show up to St. Joseph for training camp that they want more experience and roll the dice that Scott has something left in the tank.

I love when a kid gets a chance to show what he can do, but I would have no issue giving Scott a chance to stick it to the Chargers the way Chris Chambers did last season.
