Andy Reid and the Chiefs were said to be "on the verge of a deal" but a new report states that Reid, the former Eagles coach who interviewed with the Chiefs on Wednesday, still plans on making visits to the Cardinals and Chargers.
As I suspected, we have some conflicting reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported that Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs were nearing a deal but a new report from Mike Garafolo of USA Today throws some cold water on that, saying that Reid still plans to make more visits.
Andy Reid has concluded his interview with the Kansas City Chiefs and, despite a report from ESPN stating the former Philadelphia Eagles coach and the team are on the verge of a deal, Reid plans to continue on his tour of available teams.
ESPN reporting Chiefs close to deal with Andy Reid, but I'm told by two sources Andy still talking with Cards and Chargers as well.— Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) January 3, 2013
To make things more confusing, here is the rare conflicting report of a conflicting report:
.@howardeskin on the show right now: "The reality is there is NO interview scheduled in Arizona. None."— Danny Parkins (@DannyParkins) January 3, 2013
Also of note: ESPN also reported earlier in the week that Reid was "95 percent" sure to take the Cardinals job. That's why I've been so concerned about not getting clowned by his agent in this process.
If I'm the Chiefs, and Reid is my guy, I do not let him get on that plane.
Update: You ready for this? A conflicting report of a conflicting report of a conflicting report:
As much as Andy Reid wants to interview w/ #Chargers I'm hearing there still isn't one set up. Same w/ Ariz right now. KC may be only offer.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) January 3, 2013
