Free agent WR Amani Toomer works out with Chiefs

Newsday's Bob Glauber is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs worked out three free agent wide receivers Monday, with the most accomplished being former Giant Amani Toomer. The other were David Terrell and D.J. Hackett.

While Toomer is the oldest of the three, he probably makes the most sense. He is a veteran that has garnered a reputation for being a dependable receiver to find under pressure. Eli Manning made Toomer his go-to guy and often times looked uncomfortable without Toomer on the field to toss the pigskin to. He could be a helpful guy to have with the young Matt Cassel at quarterback in Kansas City.

Then again, at 34 years old, Toomer might not have much left in the tank. But with the receiving corps that the Chiefs have, currently consisting of Dwayne Bowe, Mark Bradley and Bobby Engram, new GM Scott Pioli might be wise to bring in Toomer in a low-cost deal.
