Arrowheadlines: Chiefs news 1/16

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

Morning everyone. NJ Chiefs Fan is out this morning so you're stuck with me. Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

"Dave is one of the league's best special teams minds," coach Reid said.

"He will bring an innovative approach and consistency to this group. Dave will get the most out of our players and I'm very happy he is joining our staff."

Bears special teams players were awarded eight Pro Bowl berths during Toub's time in Chicago. The Bears also led the NFL in kickoff and punt return yardage and kick return touchdowns over those nine seasons.

The Chiefs haven't returned a kick for a touchdown since Dexter McCluster scored on a punt return in the 2010 season opener against San Diego.

Many outsiders panned the choice of quarterback Aaron Rodgers when Brett Favre was firmly ensconced in Green Bay, and Rodgers has turned into a Super Bowl champion. Matt Flynn was picked in the seventh round and became a valuable commodity as a backup, while other guys such as Matt Hasselbeck and Aaron Brooks developed into starters elsewhere in the NFL.

"What we've always tried to do is develop a third guy," Dorsey said, "and develop him and see if he can be a 2 or a 1."

Dorsey's hard work ethic is already in action and as for the next few days and weeks to come, let's just say he's busy.

"Today (Monday), when I came into the office, I sat down with our personnel staff for an hour just to do an overview for where they are, where I am and where we are going to be in the next few months," Dorsey shared.

"I still think that this week, we need to first evaluate the team. We need to put a plan together for free agency. We have to put a plan together for our draft meetings. We need to put a plan together for how the coaching staff, philosophically, is with players."

One of Kansas City's own will be honored at this year's 101 Banquet.

San Francisco linebacker Aldon Smith, who played in high school at Raytown before moving on to play in college at Missouri, will be honored as the NFL defensive player of the year. This year's banquet is March 2 at the Westin Crown Center Hotel.

The West team in the 2013 East-West Shrine game took the field in shells only, no padded practice on Tuesday afternoon. It wasn't a very uptempo practice for the second day of the week, but there was still competition at certain positions, especially between two of the West team quarterbacks.
