Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 5/29

Good morning! Back to the grind. We have a light day of Kansas City Chiefs news for you today. Enjoy.

For the second time in his still-young NFL career, Dexter McCluster is a wide receiver. But stay tuned to his situation, because soon he could be a running back, also for the second time.

That's a lot of movement for a player who joined the Chiefs only two years ago. But it suggests the rather obvious: The Chiefs are struggling to find some value from McCluster, the first of their two second-round picks in 2010.

It is true that Rivers hurt his team on numerous occasions as he threw a career high 20 interceptions but seeing how his previous season high for interceptions was 15 in 2007 it would not be a major stretch for him to improve in that category this upcoming season.

Say what you want about Rivers and his attitude but it cannot be argued about his toughness as he has started every regular season game for six straight years.

According to King, two of the games in which Orton could have made a difference were a 27-19 loss to the Carolina Panthers and a 19-13 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the regular season finale.

The Colts could have had Orton in those games for just the $1.588 million that remained on Orton's base salary over the final six weeks of the season. But the Colts did not put a claim in for Orton (and at 0-10, they would have had priority over the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears, three teams that did put in claims), sticking with the quarterbacks they had for the final six weeks of the season, winning two games and securing the No. 1-overall pick that would eventually be used on Luck.

Blake in Atlanta can't understand why the Chiefs aren't getting the love nationwide. The reason is most people don't think they have 11- or 12-win talent. They will have to get to that level to convince people.
