NFL Football Betting – Chiefs Sign Amani Toomer

NFL football betting news tells us that the Kansas City Chiefs signed wide receiver Amani Toomer on Tuesday.

NFL football betting has Toomer as a 13-year veteran that was waiting to find a job and the Chiefs called.  Toomer could be an important receiver for the Chiefs in NFL betting this season.

NFL football betting on Kansas City at the online sportsbook is going to be interesting with Matt Cassel leading them.  He will be very pleased to get a receiver like Toomer who still can play.  The Chiefs really need receiving help since other than Dwayne Bowe, they don’t have a solid receiver who can impact NFL football betting.  Head coach Todd Haley is very happy to have Toomer in the fold as NFL football betting info tells us. "We'll do anything to improve the competition and obviously a guy of Amani's caliber with what he's done in the league [would do that]," Haley said. "We worked him out and it looked like he had a lot left in the tank, so we signed him."

Toomer played 13 years with the New York Giants as NFL betting stats indicate and caught 668 passes for 9,497 yards and 54 touchdowns as NFL football betting stats indicate. Last year he caught 48 passes for 580 yards and four TDs as NFL betting has it.   Online betting tells us that the Chiefs definitely need a presence like Toomer on the field and in the locker room as the 2009 NFL football betting season begins.  Kansas City is a longshot in NFL betting this season at the online sportsbook but they should be improved in NFL football betting with Cassel.  Toomer should also help the Chiefs in NFL football betting this season.  "If you look at the situation here, with a new coach, a great quarterback, it's just a good situation for me to be in and I'm happy to be here," said Toomer, "It's like you can feel the excitement coming through in how the coaches are trying to change to environment."

NFL football betting shows that the Chiefs have had a lot of dropped balls in practice, something that doesn’t happen often with Toomer. "We have to eliminate drops, we have to do a better job mentally in some areas, but today was better," Haley said. "From what I could tell, it seemed like there was a little more focus. Any time you add a guy of Amani's ability and what he's done in the league, that'll do nothing but help you."

The Chiefs will be an interesting team to follow in NFL football betting this season.
