Chiefs Reportedly Work Out Trio Of Linebackers, Including Larry Izzo

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out a trio of linebackers, according to Pro Football Weekly.

Larry Izzo. His name should sound familiar. He was an UDFA that went to the Dolphins, in 1996, and then made his way to the Patriots in 2001 where he was part of all three Super Bowl teams. He also made a Pro Bowl in Miami and two in New England for his play on special teams. He's regarded as among the best special teams players to ever play and was voted a captain in New England eight straight years. Downsides: He ended the 2009 season on IR with the Jets and is 36 years old.

Mark Simoneau. He's another inside linebacker that came into the league in 2000. He was on IR last year and never played. Sean Payton (Bill Parcels connection) got him in the Donte Stallworth trade.

Chris McCoy. Another linebacker with a Parcells connection. He was drafted by the Dolphins in the 7th round of the 2010 draft.

There's no word on any signings or if the Chiefs have a plan to sign any of them. Jon McGraw has been banged up recently and he's among the Chiefs best special teamers.
