Chiefs Looking At Competition For Mike Cox

[Editor's Note: Regarding the title -- that's what she said.]

One of the hallmarks of the Patriot Way -- as explained in the book Patriot Reign a few years back -- is that every player on the roster could be improved. Yes, that even means the fullback.

The Chiefs have worked out a couple of fullbacks already this offseason and now they're expressing interest in another.

According to a journal entry on Draft Board Insider, the Chiefs and Bucs have expressed interest in Rutgers FB Jack Corcoran.

I hope I get drafted, but if I don't I believe I'll latch on with a team as a free agent. My agent, Rob Roche, has told me several teams are interested in me. Among the teams are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs are very big on competition including those at the bottom of the roster. The Patriots didn't win multiple championships because of the superstars but because the middle and end of their roster was stronger than anyone else's in the league.

I'm not saying Corcoran, Cox or any of these other fullbacks brings a championship. I'm just saying that spending time trying to upgrade a position like fullback is a classic Pioli type of move.
