Chiefs Position Analysis: Special Teams from ESPN

That's threatened by the possible loss of McCluster and Demps. The decision whether to re-sign them is complicated by their roles on offense or defense. McCluster doesn't produce enough as a receiver to demand a big contract, so the Chiefs shouldn't give him one. While he did a nice job as a punt returner, he benefited from some great blocking at times. The Chiefs can find another returner who can do what McCluster does, though that won't necessarily be easy. Demps is a backup and if he's willing to accept backup money, he should be re-signed.

Super Bowl 2014: Former Jets Center John Schmitt Reflects On Super Bowl III from

Schmitt played the first 10 of his 11 NFL seasons with the Jets, a dream come true for the Brooklyn native who went on to play at Hofstra. That he also got to win the whole damn thing with the Jets? And to be a part of the first AFL team to do it against any and all expectations? Come on.

"I don't know if you can appreciate this," said Schmitt, who played through pneumonia in Super Bowl III. "There were guys that we hated-the Oakland Raiders, I mean there wasn't a guy on that team that we honestly liked, OK? And the Kansas City Chiefs, and some of these other teams. They'd come up to our hotel before the Super Bowl and come over and see us and pat us on the back and say, 'Hey, win it for us, all of us.' Guys that you tried to kill the week before were coming over an hugging you.

"You really felt that. We didn't just win for the Jets. We won for the AFL."

...He settled down in Missouri and eventually worked as the chief chef at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs. He enjoyed the job so much he "couldn't wait to go to work for every day." Fatino was inducted into the American Academy of Chefs in 1996.

Junior Hemingway Ready For Move from WMBF

"Coach Reid coming in and the coaching staff he brought in, (they have) just so much knowledge," Hemingway said. "You can tell they've been in the game for a long time, and just learning from them is just great."

And he fully believes he can call Kansas City home for the foreseeable future.

"I don't want this to end," Hemingway said about his time in the league. "The fans, the support, Kansas City - that stadium, just everything about Kansas City is great, and I love it."
