[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs took a step closer to landing a free-agent receiver Thursday, and it appears as if Freddie Mitchell isn’t a part of their plans.
Coach Dick Vermeil said the Chiefs are communicating with Az-Zahir Hakim’s agent, and “when they’re talking, you’re going in the right direction.”
Hakim and Mitchell came to Kansas City this week for workouts. Just before Hakim met with the coaches Tuesday, Vermeil suggested that they might sign both receivers if they went for the league minimum.
Asked Thursday whether Mitchell was still in the mix, Vermeil said, “No, I think we’ll just do one, though I’d like to have them both. Plus, we have enough receivers, I think, of quality, and some young kids keep getting better, too.”
