 Good morning Chiefs fans! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

Both sides in the NFL labor dispute agreed to federal mediation Thursday...

The felony theft case against Kansas City Chiefs veteran linebaker Mike Vrabel isn't expected to amount to much legally.

Vrabel allegedy took eight bottles of beer from an Indiana casino deli and was arrested earlier this week.

And the case is expected to eventually be resolved favorably for the NFL player without any jail time or heavy fines. It's possible, if not probable, that the case might not be pursued altogether in the court system.

We're going to kick off our foray into this project by asking whether you think the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs or Oakland Raiders need to draft a quarterback? Or perhaps you think none of the teams need to draft a quarterback.
