Chase Daniel to the Chiefs
Sorta like the Alex Smith trade, my first reaction is that I don't mind the player but it seems like an awful lot to pay. With Smith, it was draft picks. With Daniel, it's likely in a decent-sized salary. We haven't heard a firm report on what he will get paid but Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has been saying it should be $3+ million per year, which is a good chunk of change for a backup. I'd like to see more contract details before I can give my full reaction to this.
Andy Reid sacrificed some accuracy for arm strength with Vick. Doing the opposite in KC with Alex Smith and Chase Daniel— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) March 12, 2013
Glenn Dorsey visiting the 49ers
The Chiefs were said to be interested in re-signing him. Now I wonder if that was legit or not. Jim Harbaugh and Co. know more than I but it seems Dorsey would be best fit in a 4-3 (as we've been saying for, um, five years now). For now, it's just a visit.
Here's what our 49ers blog, Niners Nation, had to say: "We rave about the 49ers coaching staff, and particularly what Jim Harbaugh did with Alex Smith. If the 49ers are able to land Dorsey, I am just as excited about what Jim Tomsula and Vic Fangio can do with young defensive lineman."
Give me all the Dorsey junk you want. 49ers are going to make him a better player.— NFL Philosophy (@NFLosophy) March 12, 2013
Alex Smith trade becomes official
The Chiefs tweeted it. The 49ers tweeted it. It's official. Read about it all here.
What do we talk about now?
Meanwhile, the Alex Smith trade to KC is official. Remember when that happened?— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) March 12, 2013
Jets defensive lineman
visiting signing with the Chiefs
A Dorsey replacement? Mike DeVito has been with the Jets for the last six seasons but is now hitting the market, and has a visit scheduled to Kansas City. He could provide depth along the defensive line, or even start depending on what happens in the rest of free agency and the draft. The connection is Bob Sutton.
Bad news for #Jets, as Chiefs are reportedly in good spot to land Mike Devito. The run-stuffer is visiting KC today.— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) March 12, 2013
Chiefs sign Anthony Fasano
I had no idea what the new regime thought of Tony Moeaki so I find this interesting. How does it impact Moeaki? I'd like to see some numbers before answering that.
Jets DE Mike DeVito visiting the Chiefs: There are predictions that the Chiefs will sign him The connection is Bob Sutton, the Chiefs new defensive coordinator who was previously in New York. This could affect the Dorsey situation, too.
Anthony Fasano to the Chiefs...seems like an obvious guy to take over Brent Celek's old gig in the Andy Reid offense.— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) March 12, 2013
Chiefs also have Tony Moeaki now two years off a torn ACL. Reid had recently started using more 2-TE sets in Philly. Fasano-Moeaki— Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) March 12, 2013
Peyton Hillis visiting Green Bay
So says Adam Schefter. This would be a nice move for Hillis -- from a two-win team to one of the NFL's best. The Packers are probably a fit for any player, it all seems to work up there.
Hillis' season could've been different in Kansas City but a.) the Chiefs were awful and b.) he was injured a month into the season. By the time he got back, the season was more or less over. His rushing totals have dropped for three straight years.
