DeSean Jackson Won't Sign With Kansas City Chiefs from

Four days after Reid spoke glowingly of his half-decade with Jackson in Philadelphia, the coach's current organization decided to pass on a uniquely talented player who would have addressed a glaring need.

Andy Dalton Has Eight Figures At Stake from

A key data point to keep an eye on will be Kansas City and Smith. The Chiefs' quarterback has his contract up after next season also and is in a similar category of winning quarterbacks, but not considered among the top tier. Reports state the two sides are currently discussing an extension.

Redskins Owner's New Charity Scores No Points With Autry's West from The Los Angeles Times

Nor is he keen on sports nicknames that seem to reflect positive or at least neutral images of Native Americans, such as Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves and Cleveland Indians, the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL and the National Hockey League's Chicago Blackhawks.
