Kansas City Chiefs free agency earns 'C' grade from ESPN

A media exercise in futility. Despite the fact that the offseason can still yield free agent signings after the June 1 cuts and rookies push veterans off rosters, ESPN recently compiled grades for free agent classes for each NFL team. A panel of Mike Sando, Field Yates, Matt Williamson, Louis Riddick and former NFL GM Bill Polian weighed in to create each grade with rundowns for each team. The only team that earned an all-around "A" was the Green Bay Packers, who pretty much remained in a cave and simply refused to let their best players leave (e.g. Randall Cobb, Bryan Bulaga). As for the...

Mel Kiper Jr. says Breshad Perriman is an option for the Kansas City Chiefs

Perriman is rising up the draft boards and could be a fit for Kansas City. On Thursday afternoon, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. held a conference call and talked about many topics, including the potential first-round picks for the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is slated to pick at No. 18 and has fewer holes than it did before free agency, perhaps shrinking the pool of targets. Kiper discussed a few directions the Chiefs might go in, bringing a fairly new name into the mix. "I would think a guy like Breshad Perriman out of Central Florida. ... They didn't have a wide receiver with a...

Darrelle Revis confirms Chiefs were interested in him during free agency

One of the free agency rumors making the rounds a few weeks ago was that the Kansas City Chiefs were among the teams interested in CB Darrelle Revis. As it turns out, this was accurate. The Chiefs were indeed interested, according to Revis himself who told SNY's Loud Mouths that several others were interested as well. "(It) was the Packers, Steelers, Baltimore as well as Cleveland, the Chiefs, the Jets and also the Pats, so there was a number of teams there," Revis said, per NFL.com. "I sat down and had conversations with (them) to see if we could work something out." The Revis...

Dorial Green-Beckham is worth the risk for the Kansas City Chiefs

Green-Beckham is the ultimate boom or bust pick. The Chiefs should go for broke. The Kansas City Chiefs have enjoyed a productive offseason. General manager John Dorsey provided Alex Smith wide a top-tier receiver in Jeremy Maclin, along with upgrades along the offensive line in Ben Grubbs and Paul Fanaika. The defense also got a boost with the retaining of Tamba Hali, Mike DeVito and Ron Parker, along with the signing of Tyvon Branch. Going into the NFL Draft, the only obvious need is center after the Chiefs lost Rodney Hudson to the Oakland Raiders. Should Dorsey acquire Stefen Wisniewski...

Kansas City Chiefs check out Kansas LB Ben Heeney

The Kansas City Chiefs are checking in on some potential linebacker help in the form of Kansas product Ben Heeney, per Herbie Teope. Heeney was one of the standouts at Wednesday's pro day for Kansas football, and several teams were interested in more information about the 6'1, 231 pound linebacker.

Chiefs' Andy Reid is OK with leaving the extra point as is

The NFL owners are meeting in Arizona this week where they have been voting (or not voting) on potential rule changes. One of those rule changes involves the extra point, which has come under fire lately because it's such a boring and automatic play for teams. It sounds like a vote on the extra point could be coming in May, not this week. Chiefs coach Andy Reid joked that the rule change he wants to see is the one about head coaches meeting with the media so many times per week. Putting on his serious face, Reid also said that he would leave extra points alone. "I'm okay with where it's at...

Eric Fisher and the Kansas City Chiefs know this is a big offseason

This is shaping up to be a big season for Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher. Experience is no longer an issue after starting 30 games in his first two seasons, including all 16 last season. And Fisher will have a full offseason to gain strength after shoulder surgery wiped out that aspect of his offseason last year. "He fought through some things that you have to do to survive in this league and be a good football player," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Tuesday from the NFL owners meetings. "So we are looking forward to him having the offseason and being able to lift. Like Dorsey...

Good morning! Lots of articles in today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy! Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid's NFL Annual Meeting Media Breakfast: What We Learned from The Mothership Reid said that while the team looked at other receivers, Jeremy Maclin was their top target in free agency. "There were a couple guys that we liked," he said. "I'll tell you that he was the top one just because I know him as a person and I know him as a player, so I would tell you he was the top of the list, but there were other guys." With the ways of the three-day signing grace period and Maclin's fondness of...

Chiefs' Jeff Allen will be competing at tackle and guard

An interesting competition is developing at the Chiefs right tackle position. We have a little bit of clarity on Jeff Allen's future with the Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid spoke with the media on Tuesday and he broke the news that Jeff Allen could be competing at a couple of positions, including right tackle. Reid said that Allen "is going to get in there too" when asked about the right guard competition between Paul Fanaika and Zach Fulton. Reid also revealed that the Chiefs believe offensive tackle might be Jeff Allen's best position. "I mentioned (Donald) Stephenson," Reid said (via the...

Kansas City Chiefs offensive line can go so many different ways

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive line is shaping up to be one of the best position battles entering the 2015 offseason. After signing Paul Fanaika and trading for Ben Grubbs, the Chiefs offensive line is coming into focus ... but only a little bit. The only positions that seem somewhat set right now are Eric Fisher at left tackle and Ben Grubbs at left guard. Everything else? I dunno. I can come up with a whole bunch of different Chiefs o-line scenarios that all seem possible at the moment. Donald Stephenson at right tackle and Jeff Allen at guard. Or Jeff Allen at tackle, Paul Fanaika at...

Andy Reid on Donald Stephenson, Jeff Allen, meeting Marcus Mariota, Terrelle Pryor is a QB and more

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid actually had some interesting things to say at his media session from the 2015 NFL owners meetings in Arizona. He said that "right now" Donald Stephenson is the starting tackle AND that Jeff Allen's best position might be tackle and he will compete there. Allen vs. Stephenson in 2015? Both players can also play guard so they offer a lot of versatility, which is a great thing to have on the line. They're also entering the final years of their contracts so I don't necessarily think this rules out a tackle in the draft. Reid also said that Kelce could...

Donald Stephenson is the Chiefs starting right tackle "right now"

"For now" being the key words. Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was at the NFL owners meetings last year when he broke the (expected) news that Eric Fisher would be the team's starting left tackle in 2014. Reid is at the 2015 NFL owners meetings this week and told reporters that Donald Stephenson is the team's starting right tackle ... right now. Reid says KC projecting Donald Stephenson as the starting RT "right now" — ryan van bibber (@justRVB) March 24, 2015 Reid on his starting right tackle: "Right now we've got Donald Stephenson there.

NFL free agency rumors link Chiefs to Stefan Wisniewski

The Kansas City Chiefs lost the top-ranked free agent center when Rodney Hudson went to the Oakland Raiders. Now they have reportedly shown interest in the No. 2 center available who comes from, coincidentally, Oakland. A report from Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune names the Chiefs as one of the teams who are interested in Stefan Wisniewski, who hit the market last week after the Raiders let him walk and opted for Hudson instead. Wisniewski is recovering from shoulder surgery after last season when he played with a torn labrum. The former second-round pick of the Raiders has made...

NFL Draft 2015: Kansas City Chiefs now dealing with 10 total picks

The Kansas City Chiefs received compensatory picks in the third, fifth, fifth and sixth rounds which means they now have 10 total draft picks entering the 2015 NFL Draft. The Chiefs would have had 11 draft picks but they traded their fifth round pick to the New Orleans Saints in the Ben Grubbs trade. The last time the Chiefs had more than 10 picks in a draft was in 2008, which was one of the best drafts in franchise history. In that draft the Chiefs selected Glenn Dorsey, Branden Albert, Brandon Flowers, Jamaal Charles and Brandon Carr. If the Chiefs pick up half the talent as they did in...

Kansas City Chiefs will work out former Michigan QB / WR

The Kansas City Chiefs have added an interesting athlete to their draft interests list by working out former Michigan star Devin Gardner. While most will remember Gardner as a quarterback, his pro future is as a wide receiver and it's a move he's welcomed with open arms. While other college quarterbacks insist on remaining at the position, Gardner comes with the right intangibles and a bit of experience (16 catches for 266 yards as a WR in 2012) as well. Gardner weighs in at 218 pounds and stands 6'4, so the size is definitely there for either position. Gardner worked out during Michigan's...
