Other News And Notes From The Chiefs At The NFL Combine

Following up on a few notes from the Kansas City Chiefs at the 2012 NFL Combine...

The Big Three are on track for 2012. That's of course Tony Moeaki, Eric Berry and Jamaal Charles. Charles previously indicated on his Twitter account he hoped to be ready for OTAs. The good thing about the injuries happening early in the year is that it gives these guys time to be ready for the following season. The Chiefs website interviewed Greg Cosell about the injuries, which you should check out. Basically, we can't say for sure all these guys return at the level they were before.

Matt Cassel is progressing well. We touched on this the other day and it was never really a concern but Cassel is throwing the ball and is healthy entering next season.

The Chiefs hope to bring back Le'Ron McClain. I'm not sure this would be on the high priority list. That's not a knock on McClain but the Chiefs used him mostly as a fullback last season. I thought he would be a candidate to receive some carries when Jamaal Charles went down but that wasn't really the case. He had just 15 attempts last season. My guess is that he hits the market and, if the market softens on him as it did last year, the Chiefs could take a shot at bringing him back.

Kendrick Lewis had shoulder surgery after the season. Lewis actually broke this news on his Twitter account back in early January. Sounds like he should be good to go for the regular season but we're not sure where he stands for OTAs this offseason.

Thomas Jones "might retire". This isn't coming from the Chiefs -- it's from a Pro Football Weekly report. Jones is turning 34 years old before next season starts so this is possible. But, either way, I'm not sure he comes back to the Chiefs. We'll see.
