Q&A With Chiefs GM John Dorsey from The Mothership

Q: Could you see Sanders Commings or Husain Abdullah playing at the open free safety spot?

DORSEY: "Yeah, I could envision that. One of the reasons why we drafted Sanders Commings was because we thought he fit that positional skill. I can see Husain and those guys competing. Then, there are some guys within this draft that can help you contribute as well."

"I'm so excited about this year and I think this may be one of the best teams yet," Judah commented. "We had so many talented girls tryout this year and it was such a difficult process because of all the amazing and beautiful ladies. The 2014 squad is not only talented, but these women have amazing character and are beautiful on the inside and out. It's going to be an amazing team and I can't wait to get started."

Relax, Chiefs Fans: Free Agency Is About Winning In The Spring, And The Games Are Played In Winter from FS Kansas City

Every April, the likes of Cleveland, Buffalo, Tampa Bay and St. Louis spend to win back a lot of squandered political capital with the public trust. Then, a few months later, once the games start, it all fades away again, and the cycle begins anew.

Dozens of NFL pundits will try to convince you otherwise, but this league is not that hard to figure out: Right coach, right quarterback, and you've got a fighting chance.

The Chiefs, at present, have both.

Everything else, frankly, is showing off, especially where free agency is concerned. More often than not, it's the dumb spending dumb money in order to run in place.

Dorsey Addresses Free Agency, Road Ahead from Chiefs Spin

Former Chiefs defensive lineman Jerrell Powe's signing with the Houston Texans brings the total number of players lost since the start of free agency to seven.

Joining Powe as signing elsewhere Albert, Schwartz, Asamoah, wide receiver/punt returner Dexter McCluster, safety/returner Quintin Demps and defensive end Tyson Jackson.

Currently on the market from the 2013 team are inside linebacker Akeem Jordan, wide receiver Kyle Williams and free safety Kendrick Lewis.

While it's not often easy to let a player go, it's a part of the business side of the NFL.

Chiefs GM Dorsey Says Sanders Fiasco 'Put To Bed' from The Associated Press via FS Kansas City

"During the free agency stuff, anything can happen," Dorsey said in his first availability since the start of the open market. "I was interested in the player, and the end of the day the player and agent decided to go to Denver. ... That deal was put to bed."

Well, it was almost put to bed.

Weinberg's publicist issued a press release in which the agent offered his interpretation of the negotiations. The release also alleges someone from the Chiefs sent the agent "a series of angry and threatening text messages" under the assumption that he was shopping their deal.

Chiefs Trying To Put Sanders Case To Rest from ESPN

That's the best stance for Dorsey to publicly take. It does no good for Dorsey and the Chiefs to dwell on the situation because nothing can be done about it. Sanders has a signed contract with the Broncos and will play against the Chiefs this season and not for them.

But don't be confused by Dorsey's comments. The Chiefs were plenty mad at Sanders and his agent, believing they were left at the altar.

Free-Agency Review: Chiefs from ESPN

Including the signings of Walker, linebacker Joe Mays and offensive lineman Jeffrey Linkenbach, the Chiefs have taken care of their most obvious needs. The major exception is wide receiver. The passing game won't work consistently next season without an upgrade at the position. If there's a receiver the Chiefs like who's available when they make the 23rd pick of the draft, it would be a mistake for them to pass on him.

Potential Landing Spots For Eagles' DeSean Jackson from

4. Kansas City Chiefs: Salary cap room is the major problem here; otherwise this makes a lot of sense. Andy Reid knows Jackson's strengths and weaknesses. Kansas City needs receivers after losing out on the Emmanuel Sanders sweepstakes. All of these potential landing spots are long shots, but this one is the most far-fetched.

Source: Michael Spurlock Visited The Chiefs from National Football Post

The Kansas City Chiefs brought in former Detroit Lions kick returner Michael Spurlock for a visit, according to a league source.

Spurlock, 31, is an experienced return man.

He has previous stints with the Detroit Liojns, Dallas Cowboys, San Diego Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals.

Ravens, Eagles, Bucs Earn Early A's In Free Agency from USA Today


Kansas City Chiefs: In fairness to them, they didn't have much money to spend. But it might have been wise to spend less on WR Dwayne Bowe last year or figure out a way during the season to extend a valuable mid-tier player like Schwartz. After a big leap forward in 2013, Kansas City appears to be regressing.

Next: The Chiefs will probably be waiting until draft time to address the trenches and free safety.

PSU's Brown Bids To Sell His Services To Next Level from The Joplin Globe

So having representatives from the St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers in attendance at Pittsburg State's pro day on Tuesday morning was nothing new to Brown.

New Orleans Saints Re-Sign Wide Receiver Joe Morgan from

The 25-year-old Morgan was not offered a tender, which allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent and sign with any team. However, aside from a report that he visited the Kansas City Chiefs, Morgan wasn't reported to have any interest around the league.

He'll now get another chance to prove himself with the Saints.

Among the logical fits: the Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
