Agent's Take: How the Jets, Chiefs and Cowboys can navigate cap crunch |

Andy Reid recently reiterating his confidence in Alex Smith hasn’t stopped speculation that he’ll be out of a job because of Tony Romo. Should the Chiefs change plans, $9.7 million of cap room will be gained by walking away from Smith’s $16.9 million cap number and next season’s unguaranteed $13.3 million salary.

Murphy: Wilt Chamberlain crashed glass ceilings |

"I'm talking about being underpaid, never getting endorsements, and weird things like not getting cars. The white players often were given cars for advertising reasons. The black players got discounts. But Wilt – I have to give him credit. He was the first to have leverage and the first to exercise it. Whether he was threatening to box professionally or play tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, he was getting his money. I guarantee that."
