Good morning! Enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news.
Technically, the Chiefs run a 3-4 base defense.
In reality, Kansas City is a game plan team.
Nearly half of the Chiefs' defensive snaps last season came out of sub-package sets featuring five, sometimes six, defensive backs.
Free agency may be in full swing, but this trip is one of many important steps for the Chiefs as they evaluate talent before the NFL draft. The Hawkeyes have several pro prospects, and Pioli and the coaches have come from Kansas City to look. But they're not alone. An Iowa official says every NFL team save Washington has at least one representative on hand.
The Seattle Seahawks signed Green Bay backup Matt Flynn this week. Miami picked up former Jacksonville Jaguar quarterback David Garrard. The Kansas City Chiefs signed Denver backup Brady Quinn who is expected to challenge Matt Cassel for the starting spot.
So which teams are left?
