Neat anecdote here about the Kansas City Chiefs co-director of player personnel in the front office.
Brett Veach was a scout with the Eagles a few years ago and then followed Andy Reid to Kansas City. While in Philly, however, Veach, who is now the Chiefs co-director of player personnel, was credited with pounding the table for Fletcher Cox:

Very interesting! Cox came out of Mississippi State, which is the same school as Chris Jones. If the Chiefs are paying Jones a contract like this in five years, they’ll have done something right.
