A quick note from Adam Schefter before these playoff games start.

In recent days, the Chiefs have interviewed at least a half-dozen general manager candidates, according to multiple league sources, yet only a handful of the names actually have surfaced.
Candidates interviewed include New England’s vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli, San Diego’s director of player personnel Jimmy Raye, former Denver general manager Ted Sundquist, former Titans general manager Floyd Reese and former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer.
League sources insist that the Chiefs are waiting on Pioli, that he is their No. 1 candidate for the job. If the two sides cannot agree on a contract, then Kansas City will be prepared to move on. But apparently it still is in talks with Pioli, though no decision is imminent.

The Sundquist and Reese interviews are news to me. It's still all about Scott Pioli though for the Chiefs. I caught a mention somewhere that John Clayton of ESPN said that he thought that Pioli would return to New England.

Scott Pioli to the Kansas City Chiefs is far from a done deal based on the information we've been given.
