Childress' Job Title Explained from The Mothership

Essentially, coach Childress will research and assist with the scouting and recruiting of the draft eligible players, prior to the April 25-27 event.

He will also conduct thorough research on the spread offense, benefitting not just the offense but also helping the Chiefs defense.

Draft Spotlight - Day 6: Brian Schwenke from The Mothership

You'd be hard-pressed to find a more overlooked, underappreciated position in football than center. But, when you have talent and versatility like Cal's Brian Schwenke, you can't help but wonder what he could bring to a team.

Schwenke proved that he's worthy of attention during the 2013 Senior Bowl and the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine.

Central Michigan's Eric Fisher Accepts Invite To 2013 NFL Draft At Radio City Music Hall In New York from MLive

An All-American for the Chippewas, Fisher has rocketed up pre-draft boards and is projected to be a Top-5 pick, with some draft experts projecting him as the No. 1 overall selection.

Fisher has already visited the Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs own the No. 1 overall pick.

Dolphins Generations: Mike Pouncey And Jim Langer from

Who is/was the toughest player you've faced?

Jim Langer: "If I had to pick one I'd have to go with Curley Culp of the Kansas City Chiefs. Pittsburgh center Mike Webster and I were good friends and we always thought Curley was real tough. He was the NCAA wrestling champion, so he was really good at establishing leverage. He was very quick and very good at getting position and leverage on you, so you had to really be on your game to control him."

Teams Could Be Lining Up For Crack At Romo In 2014 from ProFootballTalk

Based on current quarterback situations, interesting teams include the Bills, Jets, Bengals, Browns, Texans, Jaguars, Chiefs, Raiders, Eagles, Bears, Vikings, Buccaneers, Cardinals, and Rams.

We've still got a long way to go, and it's possible that the Cowboys will interpret the contract differently. Still, for the second time in three offseasons a franchise quarterback could be headed to the open market.

Get Moving At FitPHX Basketball Camp from

This event is hosted by the city's FitPHX team: Mayor Greg Stanton, Councilman Daniel T.

2013 NFL Mock Draft: Going Back To Barkevious Mingo At No. 6 For The Browns from The Cleveland Plain Dealer

Kansas City has floated out interest in West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith recently. I smell smoke but no fire. The Chiefs have their quarterback. It's Alex Smith. Now they need to make sure he is comfortable. That starts with protecting him. With Eric Winston released and Branden Albert playing 2013 on the franchise tag, Kansas City will take a lineman here. The only real mystery is which one? Even though Central Michigan's Eric Fisher has risen up draft boards since his performance at the Senior Bowl, Joeckel is the more polished player and is too good to pass up.

NFL Fantasy Football: Ahmad Bradshaw, Steelers Talking from

In a copycat league, consider the Kansas City Chiefs the latest copycat. Coach Andy Reid has hired Brad Childress as "Spread Game Analyst/Special Projects" - which is a fancy way of saying Childress will help Alex Smith and the offense run elements of the spread. Smith is an athletic quarterback, so anything that will force defenses to respect his ability to run is a plus.

Macon Moments In History, March 29, 1965 from The Macon Chronicle-Herald

Apparently This Matters: Giant Elephant Bird Egg from CNN

Up until about the 17th century, the oxymoronically named animal lived happily on the island nation of Madagascar. And at about 10 feet tall, it was once the largest winged creature to walk the planet. But it didn't fly, for that would be asking a lot.

"Fly, stupid bird!"

"Dude, have you seen me?"

The thing was absolutely enormous -- much bigger than an ostrich. And, apparently, it squeezed out these huge eggs that could feed a small army for a month. Or, I suppose, the entire Kansas City Chiefs offensive line for about ... six minutes.

Edmund Kugbila Vying To Be Valdosta State's First Draft Pick Since 1997 from

New England Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia put Kugbila through his pro day workout. Kugbila also had a workout with the Carolina Panthers. He has visits scheduled with the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs.

Kugbila was born in Ghana and lived there until he was 10 years old.

Eight In The Box: WR Status Check from ESPN

This position is going to be in the spotlight because new head coach Andy Reid loves the passing game.

It all starts with top receiver Dwayne Bowe. There is a reason the new Kansas City brass gave Bowe a huge contract to keep him from leaving in free agency. Reid is going to build his passing game around Bowe. Bowe has big ability and can be a top receiver. Yes, he still drops passes and he has to show he will still be hungry after getting the big contract. But he can play.
