Arrowheadlines: Chiefs New 9/6

Happy Labor Day! Hope you don't have to do anything today other than sit around. Well, that and read you Kansas City Chiefs news.

Demorrio Williams had the idea two weeks ago: If the Chiefs were going to use him sometimes as a pass rusher, why not look the part, too?

So the veteran inside linebacker approached Kansas City’s coaches and asked them to watch as he lined up with his hand on the ground, similar to a down lineman, and went after the quarterback.

"They gave me an opportunity," he said. "Felt pretty good, you know?"

In a surprising move, Richardson, who has paved the way for Priest Holmes and Adrian Peterson, among other star running backs during his 15-year career, was released. According to a league source, there's a chance the Jets will re-sign Richardson after Week 1 so that his salary won't be guaranteed for the entire season.

Nose tackle Garrett Brown was one of the last of cuts made by the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday night.

But the New Haven native and Fairfield Prep graduate found out Sunday he will still have a job in the NFL.

The Chiefs re-signed the 6-foot-1, 309-pound nose tackle to their eight-man practice squad.

Just like the Patriots’ own disgruntled employee, left guard Logan Mankins, he was a restricted free agent not thrilled with what the Chiefs were offering. The safety also wasn’t happy with his coach or his spot in the secondary.

So what exactly did the Pats bring to town Saturday when they acquired Page from Kansas City for a conditional draft pick? More trouble, or a player who can provide legitimate help in the secondary?

According to former Chiefs coach Herm Edwards, they’ve landed a player whom Bill Belichick will like very much.

Nose tackle Anthony Toribio was claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers instead went with seventh-round pick C.J. Wilson to be the next man in if Justin Harrell can't stay healthy.

"He's not the ideal body type, but he makes plays," defensive line coach Mike Trgovac said last week about Toribio. "That's why he's kind of hung around - because it's hard to get rid of him. You kind of like guys like that, that you can trust and count on, and you know he's going to be physical and he's going to give you effort."

Horne made the Chiefs with solid work as a receiver and on special teams. He scored a touchdown on his only catch of the preseason, a 6-yarder vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also had two special teams tackles.
