Smith helped lead the Chiefs to a record-breaking turnaround, winning 11 games, nine more than in 2012, earning a playoff spot for the first time since 2010. In 2013, Alex completed 308 of 508 passes for 3,313 yards (60.6%), 23 TDs and 7 INTs for an 89.1 passer rating. Smith also added 76 carries for 431 yards and one-rushing TD, earning his first Pro Bowl honor. Statistically, Smith's best game of the season occurred when the Chiefs traveled to Oakland's "Black Hole" in Week 15, leaving victorious, 56-31.

Chiefs Sign WR Dressler, Release CB Robinson from The Mothership

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that the club has signed wide receiver Weston Dressler and released cornerback Dunta Robinson.

Weston Dressler (5-7, 179) joins the Chiefs after six seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Canadian Football League (CFL) from 2008-13. He registered 442 receptions for 6,531 yards (14.8 avg.) with 43 touchdowns.

Chiefs TEs: By The Numbers from The Mothership

Also new to the Chiefs in 2013 was TE Sean McGrath, who the team claimed off waivers, prior to the start of the regular season. McGrath played in all 16 games and finished his first year in KC with 26 receptions for 302 yards and two TDs. His first-career NFL score came against the New York Giants in Week 4, when he finished the 31-7 win with a team-high five receptions for 64 yards and the TD.

Military Super Bowl Tour Recap from The Mothership

Recently, Chiefs Cheerleader Krystal traveled to Japan with ProTour Productions for the Military Super Bowl Tour. Krystal, along with five other NFL Cheerleaders visited Camp Zama, a United States Army Military Installation, to meet military families and celebrate Super Bowl XLVIII...

"...We were one of the bigger groups on the Military Super Bowl Tour and it was an incredible opportunity to meet the other women and experience Japan," Krystal noted. "While we were in the airport, we actually ran into some of the girls that were traveling to another base in Japan and a group that was traveling to Alaska. It was pretty cool to find out that there were girls all around the world on this tour."

Dunta Robinson Released By Kansas City Chiefs from

Added to the roster to bring rock-solid depth to Kansas City's defense, Robinson wound up as a little-used slot corner who finished the campaign as the 167th-ranked player at his position by Pro Football Focus. Opposing signal-callers mounted a troubling 113.8 passer rating throwing at Robinson over nine appearances.

Chiefs Release CB Dunta Robinson from ESPN

Robinson was just one year into a $13.75 million, three-year deal that the Chiefs hoped would provide a veteran presence in what became a vastly retooled defensive backfield.

Instead, Robinson was slowed by a series of nagging injuries and appeared in only nine games, making 14 tackles and defending just two passes. He was also part of a defense that was torched by Indianapolis wide receivers in a loss that knocked Kansas City out of the playoffs.

Rookie Report: TE Travis Kelce from ESPN

The loss of Kelce had to hurt the Chiefs' passing game. He was their move tight end, the one they would send in motion or line up in a variety of spots. Kelce, in offseason practice and training camp, showed he could get down the field to make catches more like a wide receiver than a tight end. With Kelce at 260 pounds, they hoped they could find favorable matchups against linebackers who would have trouble staying with Kelce down the field.

MVP Replacements: Kansas City Chiefs from ESPN

In leading his team in rushing, receiving and touchdowns, Jamaal Charles was the engine for the Kansas City Chiefs' offense. It's scary for the Chiefs to think of what they might be without Charles, except they scored 44 points in their playoff loss to Indianapolis mostly without him. He left the game for good on Kansas City's first possession with a concussion.

That ignores two important points. One, perhaps the Chiefs with a healthy Charles for an entire game would have scored enough points to beat the Colts. Second, that was one game. What if they needed to replace Charles for a longer period?

Chiefs QB Alex Smith Still Getting Screwed In San Francisco Takes Massive Real Estate Loss from TMZ

Chiefs QB Alex Smith is so desperate to put his 8 years in San Fran behind him ... he just slashed a cool $300K off the asking price on his CA mansion, TMZ Sports has learned...

...Here's what's inside -- high vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and huge windows with amazing views. What's NOT inside? A Lombardi Trophy, cause y'know

NFL Pro Bowl Stars Share Time with Wounded Warriors, Community from U.S. Army MWR

"It's kind of surreal," said Capt. Candace Clark, S-1 (administration), WTB, "but they (Pro Bowl players) are kind and down to earth..."

...Clark may have enjoyed the gathering as much as any unit member, as she gathered "selfies" of herself with Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and Chiefs special teams star Dexter McCluster.

"This is one great morale booster to have this type of one-on-one time," Clark said. "[It was] definitely a good day."

Olivia Wilde Is One Fashionable Mom-To-Be In Outing With Jason Sudeikis from Inquisitr

The actress looks simply stunning, even if she is carrying a little more weight in her midsection. Whether she is seen going to the gym or at a more formal outing, Olivia Wilde always seems to look perfect.

In one of her trips to the gym her Kansas City sweatshirt caused all the talk on Twitter and people are saying that Olivia Wilde is a Chiefs fan.

For Patriots, It's A Wide-Open Field from The Providence Journal

What could hurt Edelman, and help the Patriots, is that the free-agent list at wide receiver is one of the best. Including restricted free agents, there are more than 50 wideouts hitting the market.

Some of the best include Green Bay's James Jones, San Francisco's Anquan Boldin, Devin Hester of the Bears, Jacoby Jones of the Ravens, Jeremy Maclin of the Eagles, Eric Decker of the Broncos, Dexter McCluster of the Chiefs, Pittsburgh's Emmanuel Sanders and Brandon LaFell of Carolina.
