Yep, it's Friday. A light day for Kansas City Chiefs news. Keep checking back here for updates on the NFL labor talks. We'll keep you up to date. Enjoy.

Forbes magazine has done its annual calculation of America's richest people. Through public and corporate filings, detective work and revenue and expense projections, they round up the 400 deepest bank accounts in the country and estimate their overall wealth. Nobody knows for sure how accurate the projections might be, but it's as close as we can get to lining up the folks with money in some order...

...The NFL is well represented on this list of the wealthiest people in America. None of the other professional sports leagues can match half of the billionaires that reside in pro football. Of the 31 ownerships in the NFL - remember the Green Bay Packers are a publicly owned team - 18 hold the title of billionaire.

Americus native and former University of Georgia (UGA) star Leonard Pope was in town Wednesday and took time to visit his friends at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center. Pope, who currently plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, was born at the hospital (then known as Sumter Regional Hospital) and has been an avid supporter both before and after the 2007 tornado, including hosting a charity event a few months after the disaster.

The Chiefs have one of the more exciting young rosters in the NFL. But Kansas City, which went 10-6 and was a surprise AFC West winner in 2010, has some needs. If the Chiefs get the right front seven players for their intriguing 3-4 defense, this unit could be top notch soon.

At this time last year, RB Thomas Jones had just inked a free agent deal in Kansas City. Jones' addition not only represented the Chiefs first external free agent signing of 2010, but it also offered clarity to Kansas City's draft day strategy.

Prior to Jones' signing, acquiring a supplementary rusher for Jamaal Charles had generated much chatter throughout college all-star games and combine workouts.

It was clear that a special talent had been unearthed in Charles, but who would be there to help the rising star shoulder Kansas City's rushing load?
