Andy Reid and the Chiefs were said to be "on the verge of a deal" but a new report states that Reid, the former Eagles coach who interviewed with the Chiefs on Wednesday, still plans on making visits to the Cardinals and Chargers.

As I suspected, we have some conflicting reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported that Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs were nearing a deal but a new report from Mike Garafolo of USA Today throws some cold water on that, saying that Reid still plans to make more visits.

Andy Reid has concluded his interview with the Kansas City Chiefs and, despite a report from ESPN stating the former Philadelphia Eagles coach and the team are on the verge of a deal, Reid plans to continue on his tour of available teams.

In addition to the scheduled interview with the Arizona Cardinals, Reid has lined up a meeting with the San Diego Chargers, according to a person informed of Reid's itinerary.

To make things more confusing, here is the rare conflicting report of a conflicting report:

Also of note: ESPN also reported earlier in the week that Reid was "95 percent" sure to take the Cardinals job. That's why I've been so concerned about not getting clowned by his agent in this process.

If I'm the Chiefs, and Reid is my guy, I do not let him get on that plane.
