Good morning! Here is your Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy!

Seventeen college prospects received invites to take part in the Chiefs local Pro Day Tuesday afternoon at the club's training facility. Conferences represented in this year's workout included the Big XII, Big Ten, Pac-12, Missouri Valley, MIAA, Great Lakes Valley and Heart of America...

...To be eligible for the workout, players must have attended a college or university within a 40-mile radius of Arrowhead Stadium. A player whose hometown is within a 40-mile radius of the stadium is also eligible to participate.

In fact, Breaston's pretty blunt - particularly for a player on the offensive side of the ball - when it comes to his thinking on hard hits. He understands and appreciates that the league is working to make the game safer for players like him, but also realizes those hits are going to keep coming. As he puts it, the culture of the game isn't changing instantly for one rule change or even one year of adjusted rules.

Steve Breaston joined KCSP in Kansas City with Nick Wright to discuss his take on the Saints' situation, why he feels it's a defender's job to try and hurt him, players taking shots on the field, if there's any way for the game to really ever be played more safely and the upcoming season with the Chiefs.

Just one week after signing a free agent deal with Kansas City, tight end Kevin Boss headed off to the remote village of Pignon, Haiti with a suitcase full of Chiefs gear. Extra pairs of cleats, tennis shoes, sandals and athletic gear also filled Boss' bags.

Boss' trip was inspired by his good friends Denny and Abby Bain, founders of the non-profit organization Titans LB Tim Shaw joined Boss on the visit as well.

His size, strength, use of hands and athleticism make him a versatile player who fits well as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 scheme or a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme.

The Kansas City Chiefs pick 11th overall and must upgrade their defensive line, so they could take Still in the first round if LSU's Michael Brockers is not available. Later in the first round, the New York Jets and No. 16 and the New England Patriots, who hold the 27th and 3st picks, could have interest in Still because he would fit well in their 3-4 schemes.

In only its second year, Young Texans Against Cancer's Kiss My Grits fundraiser has become a full-fledged, not-to-be-missed food event, and judging by the crowd of party-ready yuppies at The Capitol at St. Germain on last Thursday night, Houston has taken notice...

"...At this point it's a toss-up whether I'm going to get full first or drunk first," said new Kansas City Chiefs right tackle Eric Winston. Winston, a native of Texas and a Houston Texan for six years, joined Greg Morago of the Houston Chronicle, KHOU's Katherine Whaley and myself on the judging panel.

A recent report insists the Chiefs could take a look at Ryan Tannehill in the draft if he slips past the Browns and Dolphins according to the Kansas City Star. The writer laments how the Chiefs passed on Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez and Josh Freeman. Uh, Flacco and Sanchez are no better than Cassel, but you have an argument for Freeman. But where there is smoke there is fire, so look for the Chiefs to add somebody to challenge Cassel, who is a QB2 at best right now.
