Good morning! Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!
At some point over the next few months, likely sometime in August, all the thrills of draft day will become a distant memory for Poe.
"Training camp," Dorsey laughed, recalling the first time the NFL humbled him. "It's never easy. You've got guys that have been in the league 10-12 years, training camp is where the guy in line is just as good as you, at least as good as you think you are.
"It's going to be a transition for him, but we're going to try and work with him and hopefully he can help us out."
Poe Should Look To His Right (Or Left) For Rookie Advice from The Mothership
Scott Pioli has rebuilt the Chiefs by deftly selecting productive, hard-working players in every stage of the draft. This year, Pioli appeared to deviate from the philosophy when he selected Dontari Poe in the first round, despite questions about his productivity at Memphis. However, it's impossible to find 346-pound defenders with this combination of size, strength and athleticism, so it's a worthwhile gamble with the unique upside.

Life is really good right now for Kansas football player and former Omaha Westside all-stater Tim Biere.
Last Saturday, Biere signed a free-agent contract with the Kansas City Chiefs after starting most of four seasons at tight end for the Jayhawks.
"I'm going to use a ‘take-your-swing-and-see-what-happens' approach," he said by phone from Lawrence, Kan. "Playing in the Big 12 was great. You go up against NFL competition every week, so that has prepared me."

Although Biere came to expect that his name would not be called during the seven rounds of the draft, he believed he would get a shot somewhere. Prior to the draft, officials from several teams, including Kansas City, reached out to the 6-foot-4, 260-pound tight end and told him they would be interested in signing him when the draft ended. Biere liked what he heard from each and appreciated that he had options. He chose the Chiefs because of his familiarity with the team and the area.

21. Romeo Crennel, Kansas City Chiefs: There isn't much to work with here, but Crennel went 2-1 as the interim head coach of the Chiefs last season, which was highlighted by a shocking upset victory over the then-undefeated Green Bay Packers. The return of running back Jamaal Charles should provide a big boost for the offense, but once again, the season rests of the shoulders of highly-paid quarterback Matt Cassel.

Chiefs: One Big Question from ESPN
Pioli's run in Kansas City has been an up-and-down affair, but his professional relationship with Romeo Crennel stretches back into the 1990s. They speak the same language and feel good about the giant linemen they acquired in this draft.
