|ESPN.com: AFC West||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson
It may seem strange that the only unsigned draft pick in the AFC West, now that Kansas City has signed top pick Glenn Dorsey, is a seventh rounder. Chiefs seventh rounder Michael Merritt remains unsigned.
However, there is a reason for it. The tight end suffered a recent leg injury. He is working out near the Chiefs' training camp and will sign his deal when he is recovered. There's no funny business. A seventh rounder is not playing hardball. The reason why Merritt isn't signed is merely a formality.
