Maybe they should bring back Okoye, Word and Harvey Williams
The News The KC Star reports that former Chiefs running back Donnell Bennett is trying out for his former employer. Bennett played with Kansas City from 1994-2000, with Washington in 2001, and was out of football last year. Reflecting upon his year away from the game, Bennett said, “It was an interesting year. It gave me a chance to grow as an individual. I had a 9-to-5 job. The real world is going to be a reality someday, but I just know I have some more football left in me."
Our View The fact that the Chiefs are even considering Bennett demonstrates the team’s deep concern over its running back position. Priest Holmes’ hip injury is serious, and the team has no viable backup currently in place. Very few players make a successful return to the field after leaving it.
