Enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news!


Chiefs think new receiver Avery has speed to burn -
New Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid love the fast guys, too. One of the first things they noticed after arriving in Kansas City and studying the players was that the Chiefs didn’t have a true deep threat at wide receiver. Devon Wylie, a fourth-round draft pick last year, and Jamar Newsome, who started two games for the Chiefs last season, are fast. But they aren’t Avery fast. Avery recorded a 4.27-second 40-yard dash at his pro day at the University of Houston in 2008. That’s seriously fast.

Chiefs CB Dunta Robinson: "Winning is the Ultimate Goal"
As Robinson makes the transition to Kansas City, he made it very clear (during a conference call), there are several reasons that led him to sign his name on the Chiefs dotted line. "Well, first things first, [John] Dorsey and coach Reid," Robinson said.

So perhaps it shouldn’t have been such a surprise once the Chiefs hired John Dorsey to be their new general manager, and free agency opened this week, a steady stream of productive guys began walking through the front doors at One Arrowhead Drive. Cornerbacks Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson. Defensive tackle Mike DeVito. Tight end Anthony Fasano and wide receiver Donnie Avery. Backup quarterback Chase Daniel. They all point at Reid as one of the reasons why they chose Kansas City.

DeVito already feels the culture has changed from what fans knew. "We have four Pro Bowlers on defense, which is a good start. There are hard-nosed guys already here, you don’t have to do an overhaul," DeVito said Wednesday. "We’re hitting the ground running over here; you can see that, the atmosphere the culture is incredible. I’m excited about that. It doesn’t seem like a 2-14 team coming in with a new coach. It seems like a team that’s playoff bound team, seems like a team that is going to come in here and win games. I’ve only been here for 8-9 hours and you can tell right off. It’s amazing and a testament to coach Reid what he’s done, Mr. Dorsey and the Hunt’s."
