A Raiders blog is reporting that the Chiefs have offered Kirk Morrison a contract.

So far it is only being reported by one source and may not be true.

Kirk Morrison is a restricted free-agent who was giving a third round tender, so any team willing to sign him will have to give one of their third round picks to the Raiders. And the Raiders would be given five days to match the contract offered to Morrison.

But here's the thing.  According to the report the Chiefs are offering Morrison a four-year deal worth $45 million and $13 million guaranteed.

For that price I say take him. Kirk Morrison is not without his flaws, but I'm glad to see he is being paid.

Also glad to see a division rival may be grossly over-paying a former Raider and Oakland native.

What do you think Raider-Nation, is this report true?

I say for now lets write this off as a rumor.

PS... About an hour after I posted this I realized today is April 1st. It may be an April Fools Joke.
