[Kansas City.com] Coach Herm Edwards said the Chiefs have talked with New Orleans about a trade for running back Michael Bennett.
“They called us and we talked,” Edwards said. “That’s what everybody does. We talked about certain scenarios. We have to explore all of our options.”
With Priest Holmes’ return uncertain, the Chiefs have only Quentin Griffin as a proven backup for Larry Johnson. The diminutive Griffin is versatile, but probably not big enough to play every day week in and week out if the Chiefs lose Johnson for an extended period.
“We’re not panicking by any stretch of the imagination,” Edwards said. “We have a lot of time to decide whether we need another running back. We don’t have to decide that today. Training camp is not until July.”
