Andy Reid said on Monday that the Kansas City Chiefs were reviewing their options to replace Derrick Johnson, including free agent inside linebackers. The Chiefs worked out six of them and a few names are familiar:

James Laurinaitis stands out as a 2009 second round pick that spent six seasons with the Rams. He has 115 career starts including three for the Saints this year.
Nate Irving is a former 2011 third round pick by the Broncos. He has 14 career starts with the last one coming last season with the Colts.
Miles Burris was a 2012 draft pick the Raiders. He played in Oakland for three years. Jayson Dimanche was briefly on the Chiefs practice squad so he has some familiarity. Nick Moody went to Florida State with current Chiefs LB Terrance Smith. Jasper Brinkley has been with a bunch of teams since coming into the league as a fifth round pick in 2009.
