Good morning! Today's Kansas City Chiefs news includes uniforms, a rookie QB poll, and pro day/ visit updates. Enjoy!
"I want a uniform that is lightweight and durable," explained WR
Dwayne Bowe, who served as Kansas City's player model at the launch. "I want it to be able to last four quarters without being drenched in water and I don't want it sagging down for guys to tackle me. This jersey is fitted for your body.
"With this technology, first off, the numbers are not as stiff. These jerseys are very flexible in the arms for making those tough catches that maybe you couldn't make before. It's just so comfortable; I can't even explain it to you. I had this on all day like it was a regular outfit, so you can imagine how I feel about the new uniforms."
Best overall pick: Eric Berry, Kansas City Chiefs, 2010, 5th overall. The Chiefs splurged by taking him that high, and he didn't disappoint as a rookie, making the Pro Bowl on the strength of making plays all over the field - including 92 tackles, two sacks and four interceptions. As much as they missed running back Jamaal Charles in their offense after tearing his ACL in Week 2, the same injury Berry suffered in Week 1 was a bigger season-ending blow.
This might be the right time for the Chiefs to draft a quarterback to develop to be a future starter. Presumed starter Matt Cassel turns 30 in May. It may be time to think of the future...
...Please take our poll and pick whom you think is the best fit for the Chiefs. Explain your reason why for your choice in the comment section below. We will review the poll results Wednesday.

The next quarterback at Auburn I remember was one of the better athletes to ever play the position at Auburn, Bobby Hunt. He was also a terrific leader and went on to a very successful career in pro football as a defensive back. He was a starter for the Kansas City Chiefs in the first Super Bowl.
