In [Ryan Lilja's] case, he was coming off a year-long injury. We just felt that the injury history was such that it didn't make sense for us to pay the kind of money it was going to take to keep him. As it turns out, he's had a wonderful year in Kansas City. That's not a decision I would second-guess or say was a mistake. It's tough to lose a guy like that, but you do have to make money decisions. That was a position where we felt like maybe we had some younger players who could step up and play pretty well. That hasn't been the case. So, it has turned out to be a mistake, but I wouldn't second-guess the decision in the first instance. Those things happen.

Bill Polian, president of the Indianapolis Colts. Lilja signed a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Chiefs. Apparently, for Bill, that was too much money for Lilja. Meanwhile, Bob Sanders ($37 million dollar contract, $20 mill guaranteed) still hasn't played a complete game since October of last year.
