Chiefs Rushing Attack Primed For 2013 from The Mothership

"Obviously, we know what he did last year - Pro Bowl running back, had over 1500 yards, excellent, excellent season," Pederson said of Charles.

"He's a guy that we can put in multiple spots. He's a sharp kid. He's worked extremely hard this offseason. Really, I think the sky is the limit with him, with what we're trying to do; just put him in different spots and using his ability to, again, create matchups defensively."

Pederson was asked if the Chiefs plan to use Charles' teammate Dexter McCluster as a running back or a wide receiver; the answer was quick.

"Both," said Pederson. "I think really you can put him in either spot because he's familiar with both spots and, again, create matchups and hopefully get those mismatches during the game."

Former Coach Dick Vermeil To Visit Andy Reid At Chiefs Practice from KC Star

"I have a great appreciation for him as a person and as a coach," said Vermeil, who was at Shoal Creek Golf Course on Monday to participate in the Trent Green Golf Classic to benefit Ronald McDonald House charities. "I've been on his practice field and watched him coach. I've been in meetings and watched him coach. I'm just impressed with how he does things. It's more the old-fashioned way to coach. He works them hard and makes them better. He's fair to his players. There's no (clutter) in his message in any way. He's very straightforward. He's intense, but at a level where players can still learn."

Vermeil, an occasional visitor at Eagles workouts over the last seven seasons, will visit practice today in Kansas City as the Chiefs begin their final week of offseason work with a three-day minicamp at their Truman Sports Complex practice facility.

An Edge For Ex-College Coaches? from ESPN

It's hard to imagine, but the offseason for the Eagles, Chiefs and Cleveland Browns ends Thursday. Kelly, Reid and Browns coach Rob Chudzinksi began their offseason programs April 1. Their three-day minicamps will be held Tuesday-Thursday.

After Thursday, everything is shut down for those teams until the start of training camp toward the end of July. That's a seven-week vacation that will give the young players plenty of time to forget what they learned the past two months.
