Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 2/8

New, comments

NJ Chiefs Fan is having technical difficulties (which he told me about yesterday, which I promptly forgot this morning, which is why Arrowheadlines is so late today).

Here's your short version of Arrowheadlines:

Bob Gretz: Chiefs Without 2011 Contracts: Over the Super Bowl weekend the NFL Players Associated released the names of all the NFL players who do not have contracts for the 2011 season.

There are also defensive coordinator openings in Arizona and Tennessee, with Philadelphia switching offensive line coach Juan Castillo to defensive coordinator last week.

After the Super Bowl, New CBA Has Large Implications for the Denver Broncos - Mile High Report
You can read into this what you will, but to me, this says two things:

1. The Broncos feel like they will be "stuck" with the #2 pick if there is no CBA

2. The Broncos could be interested in trading the pick if there IS a new CBA

2011 Free Agents: Kansas City Chiefs - Bolts From The Blue
Although the Kansas City Chiefs are a team that was built relatively quickly, mostly through the draft, they somehow managed to have a number of very important players that are up for free agency this offseason. Here are some of the more notable players who could be wearing a new jersey in 2011:

Jaguars release veteran offensive lineman Jordan Black | jacksonville.com
The nine games Jordan Black started for the Jaguars last season didn't show the team enough. Jacksonville released the veteran offensive tackle on Monday and signed first-year center Bradley Vierling, who spent all of the 2010 season on the practice squad, to a contract for the 2011 season.
