Adam Teicher's Look At The NFL's Free-Agent Market from KC Star
Top available: Ahmad Bradshaw (New York Giants), Reggie Bush (Miami), Steven Jackson (St. Louis), Rashard Mendenhall (Pittsburgh).
Comment: Bradshaw and Jackson, in particular, have some mileage on them. But there are some interesting options available to teams looking for a featured back.
Chiefs situation: Like at quarterback, the Chiefs have their starter. In this case it's Jamaal Charles. But with Peyton Hillis a potential free agent and Cyrus Gray and Shaun Draughn as the backups, the Chiefs may pursue a veteran to provide some relief for Charles.
Which NFL Teams Will Spend In Free Agency? We Rank Them 1-32 from USA Today
14. Kansas City Chiefs ($17.8M): With the pending acquisition of QB Alex Smith, the re-signings of WR Dwayne Bowe and Pro Bowl P Duntin Colquitt and the franchise tag they hung on LT Branden Albert, most of the Chiefs' work is done. But they did extract a heavy pay cut from DE Tyson Jackson, dumped starting RT Eric Winston and will probably soon release QB Matt Cassel, moves which helped them woo Robinson. Further help, maybe for the D-line, could be on the way.
Clark Hunt: Stepping Out Of Lamar's Shadow from Arrowhead Addict
Through all of this, Clark Hunt did nothing. Absolutely nothing. It took some dedicated Chief fans to pay their money out of their own pockets to fly a plane over the stadium for him to even slightly take notice.
Then, something amazing happened. The debacle that was the 2012 season came to end; Crennel's coaching tenure came to an end and Clark Hunt stood up and made himself heard. He flew to Philly and met with then, just-deposed Eagle head coach, Andy Reid. We all know what happened next. Clark got his guy. However, Clark didn't stop there.

If Ellerbe does leave the Ravens, he will have his fair share of teams interested. Early on, it looks like the Indianapolis Colts are the leaders in the race to sign Ellerbe, but the New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers are all showing early interest as well. His agent confirmed that several teams called about the linebacker as soon as the clock hit 12:01.
1. Kansas City Chiefs -- Eric Fisher, T, Central Michigan: I had two coaches tell me Fisher was their top tackle, and a reliable source tell me that Fisher over Luke Joeckel for the top spot. No one knows for sure and either man would be a solid pick.
Lack Of Excitement Is A Good Thing from ESPN
Nick in Olathe, Kan., didn't understand why the Chiefs cut tight end Kevin Boss and wide receiver Steve Breaston. Boss has a concussion issue and might not play. Breaston was making $4.55 million a year and the team has to clear out room to fit in Dwayne Bowe's $12 million-a-year contract.
