Will Shields Says Chiefs' Eric Fisher Should Be Able To Play Right Or Left Tackle from KC Star

"Some people make it more complicated than it can be," said Shields, a right guard during his 14-year career with the Chiefs who occasionally had to spell players at other positions, including left tackle.

"It just depends on how good you are as an athlete. How are you going to work at it to make yourself work on both sides. In high school, I played left. Then, all through college, I played right. It depends on your mental makeup of ‘Hey, can I switch sides ...' What are you going to do win a job, that's what it comes down to." Video: Chiefs Live! Previewing OTAs

Count On A Chiefs Rebound from ESPN (InSider)

The Chiefs would know. Last year, a team with six Pro Bowlers won two games. That's because Chiefs quarterbacks combined for a QBR mark of 31.9 (that's bad) a passer rating of 63.8 (ugly) and a TD-to-INT ratio of 8-to-20 (KC fans can step outside for a smoke at this point).

Each Team's Most Pressing Question As Minicamp Looms from Sports Illustrated

Kansas City Chiefs: What will happen with Branden Albert?
