Good morning! It's not often your Kansas City Chiefs news has mentions of Joe Delaney and Willie Lanier on the same day. Oh, and cheerleaders. I'll take it.

Chiefs Continue With Offseason Game Plans from The Mothership

Prior to leaving the league's annual meeting, coach Reid was asked about working with Chiefs general manager John Dorsey.

"It's been great," coach Reid said. "John and I had a history before, and I love his approach. He came in, and I thought he brought the whole organization together with his personality. He's a tough guy. We all know that. But yet, he's got this personality where he just includes everybody. Everybody is a part of it. He makes everybody feel a part."

Chiefs Spotlight: Cheerleading from The Mothership

To continue with the theme of the past week, Chiefs Cheerleading, I spoke with the director of the program to find out more about the squad, the responsibilities of the team and the role Chiefs Cheerleaders (CC) play on game day and in the community.

"It takes a lot to be a Chiefs Cheerleader," Stephanie Judah, Director of Chiefs Cheerleading explained. "We look for well-rounded women who have both high talent and character. These women work so very hard throughout the year, but always find that it is worth it to have an opportunity to stand on that field at Arrowhead Stadium and represent the best organization in the National Football League."

Reid Not A Big Fan Of Free Agency from ESPN

This year the Chiefs signed four players, though they could certainly sign more. Three of those four players appear they will fill a smaller role with defensive linemen Vance Walker being the exception.

So which are the real Chiefs, last season's big spenders or this year's frugal shoppers? The answer could vary from year to year, but in general, this year will be more like how the Chiefs operate.

This is what coach Andy Reid had to say on the subject this week at the NFL's annual meetings in Orlando, Fla.

CB Chris Owens Can Fill Big Need For Kansas City Chiefs from ESPN

The Kansas City Chiefs ran into some trouble last season when opposing offenses flooded the field with wide receivers. The Chiefs had Sean SmithBrandon Flowers and Marcus Cooper as their top three cornerbacks, but finding a fourth player to cover was difficult. They tried veteran Dunta Robinson early in the season, but found him lacking and he was released after the end of the season.

The Chiefs last week signed veteran cornerback Chris Owens and, for now at least, he projects as that fourth cornerback.

23. Kansas City Chiefs - Odell Beckham Jr., Wide Receiver, LSU

The only impact receiver the Chiefs have is Dwayne Bowe, who is tough and physical. In order to spread out the defense and threaten it downfield, Kansas City needs to find someone to complement him. OBJ has speed, elusiveness and run-after-catch ability, which is perfect for Andy Reid's offense.

Chip Kelly, Andy Reid: Michael Vick Has Plenty To Offer from

The current Kansas City Chiefs coach said he thinks Vick hooking up with his former offensive coordinator, Marty Mornhinweg, in New York is a positive. He also doesn't believe Vick's desire to start will outweigh his ability to be a leader for Geno Smith.

"I think he can still play," Reid said. "I'm not sure he's going in (with) that frame of mind. I don't know. I think he understands the young kid is the starter. He's going to compete with him every day, but yet he'll never step on that kid's toes. That's not how he operates."
