Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 3/16

 Good morning Chiefs fans. Kansas City Chiefs news is scarce today. Here's what I could dig up. Enjoy.

In the next couple of weeks, we are going to dig through the players still on the roster and identify players that could advance to help the Chiefs in 2011, and those that will likely find themselves rolling on down the road to another team or their life’s work.

The NFL isn't conducting business as usual.

The same should go for the upcoming college draft.

The selection process will be held April 28-30 even during the current work stoppage because of rules in the previous collective bargaining agreement.

But if the NFL were wise, it would shelve its annual Radio City Music Hall production and announce the picks in a less elaborate fashion, even at the cost of diminished television ratings. And if the NFL Players Association wanted to avoid being accused of using high-profile prospects as pawns in a CBA chess match, it wouldn't stage a rival draft event provided the NFL also agrees to curtail the dog-and-pony show.
