McCluster Excited By Happenings In KC from KC Star

Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster was among the revelers as Mississippi upset Wisconsin during NCAA Tournament regional action Friday at the Sprint Center.

McCluster, a former Rebels running back and 2010 second-round pick, even commissioned special gear for the occasion after learning that his alma mater was coming to Kansas City.

"I went and had four shirts made up that say ‘Ole Miss Rebels' in red and blue," McCluster said. "I was so excited to see everybody - some friends and some people I really looked up to at Ole Miss. I'm having a good time here today. It's great. It feels like I'm back home. Hotty Toddy - I'll bleed red and blue until the day I die."

Chiefs Shopping Branden Albert? from ESPN

The Kansas City Chiefs have a price in mind if some team is interested in acquiring left tackle Branden Albert.

The team is seeking a second-round pick in this year's draft as well as a pick in 2014 in any trade for its franchise player, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Friday.

The Chiefs have had trade discussions with the Miami Dolphins, among other NFL teams, sources said. If the Chiefs could get back two picks, it would help make up for the second-round pick and conditional third-round pick that they gave up for quarterback Alex Smith.

Albert's Price Too High For Dolphins? from ESPN

Albert was recently given the franchise tag by the Chiefs, but they are also the favorites for Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel with the No. 1 overall pick. So Kansas City is looking to move Albert.

But is the asking price too much for Miami?

The Dolphins have the draft capital and cap space to work out a trade with Kansas City. Miami is looking for a replacement at left tackle for former No. 1 overall pick Jake Long, who signed with the St. Louis Rams. However, Albert would be costly.

Eight In The Box: FA Winners Or Losers? from ESPN

It's difficult to find anyone who would argue that this wasn't a winning offseason. In fact, the Chiefs might be among the biggest winners in free agency in the entire league. The Chiefs were aggressive and addressed every big need. First, they traded for quarterback Alex Smith, answering their most glaring hole with the best available player at the position. Then, they kept three key free agents in receiver Dwayne Bowe, punter Dustin Colquitt and left tackle Branden Albert. And after that, the Chiefs jumped aggressively into free agency.

5. Jamaal Charles, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: Charles was inconsistent this past season, but when he was good he was exceptional. He rushed for over 1,500 yards in his first year back from a major knee reconstruction, recorded 220-plus rushing yards twice and finished eighth at his position based on fantasy points. The addition of coach Andy Reid should mean even more of a featured role for Charles, who figures to also be more prominent in the pass attack (think Duce Staley, Brian Westbrook and LeSean McCoy). Still in the prime of his career at the age of 26, Charles should be considered one of fantasy football's most coveted running backs in 2013.
