Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 3/22

Good morning! Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

March Madness And Chiefs CB Marcus Cooper from The Mothership

Much like the underdogs in the NCAA tourney, Kansas City Chiefs CB Marcus Cooper came from under the radar to play a more-than-significant role in 2013, both on-and-off the field. During the recently-held 101 Awards, Cooper was named the Mack Lee Hill Award winner, given to the top rookie or first-year player on the Chiefs roster who best exemplifies the spirit of the late Mack Lee Hill, who passed away during his second season with the Chiefs in 1965.

However, Cooper's preseason didn't start favorably; he was cut by the San Francisco 49ers, causing an emotion that continues to fuel him on a daily basis.

Chiefs Sign CB Chris Owens from The Mothership

The Kansas City Chiefs signed cornerback Chris Owens, the team announced today.

Owens (5-9, 180) has played in 72 games (14 starts) in five NFL seasons with the Cleveland Browns (2013), Miami Dolphins (2013) and Atlanta Falcons (2009-12).

Chiefs Waive DL Brandon Moore from The Mothership

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that the club has waived defensive lineman Brandon Moore.

Moore (6-5, 317) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the San Diego Chargers on April 27, 2013.

He spent the majority of the 2013 season on the Chargers practice squad, before joining the Denver Broncos practice squad roster on Nov. 28. Moore was released by the Broncos on Dec. 31.

Look For Chiefs To Draft Return Specialist from ESPN

With Hester out of the picture, the Chiefs are still in the market for a return specialist. They reportedly met with journeyman Micheal Spurlock but appear to prefer using a rookie, perhaps in combination with the players they already have.

Odell Beckham Jr. of LSU is one of the better return specialists available in the draft and can also fulfill Reid's preference for the returner to help elsewhere.

Clinton-Dix's Current Visits Don't Include Chiefs from Chiefs Spin

Given his status, it's only natural for Clinton-Dix, who recently visited with the Detroit Lions, to make the rounds with franchises in need of a safety.

Clinton-Dix at this time has predraft visits arranged with "numerous teams," a source familiar with his schedule told ChiefsSpin.com.

But the Chiefs, who own the 23rd pick overall in the draft, are currently not one of the teams, the source said.

Should Chiefs Go For O-Line In Draft Again? from ESPN

While you can argue with some of their decisions, their commitment has been clear. The Chiefs have made building their offensive line a priority.

For all that maneuvering, the Chiefs still have a hole in their offensive line, this time at right guard. Four of those five recent draft picks will start next season, but they have no can't-miss candidate for the vacant spot.

Texans Sign Safety Kendrick Lewis from ESPN

Lewis has started 50 games, including all 16 in 2011, when he tied a career high with three interceptions.

Chiefs Sign Chris Owens from ProFootballTalk

In short, the Chiefs have added a defensive back who knows both conferences and has shown he can hold a job at a tough position for multiple years. While Owens isn't likely to start for Kansas City, he could earn playing time in "sub" packages.

2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 from Pro Player Insiders

23.) Kansas City Chiefs: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon St.

Another rising prospect. Cooks is a scorcher who ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash at the combine. He also set single-season record for the PAC 12 with 128 catches.
