Mel Kiper on the NFL Draft, Then and Now | FOX Sports

Somebody drafted Tyreek Hill last year and he had a great rookie year. Now, would every team have drafted Tyreek Hill?

AFC West advice: Broncos, Chiefs face decisions at quarterback | USA Today

The Chiefs should also stay out of the Tony Romo sweepstakes and stick with Smith — though it could be time to invest a high draft pick in a quarterback for coach Andy Reid to start developing. The tough move that the organization should make is releasing veteran RB Jamaal Charles, who is schedule to count $6.1 million against the cap in 2017, the final year of his contract.

A.J. Klein looking to test free agency for a starting job in 2017 | Panthers Wire

With Kuechly, Thomas Davis and the budding Shaq Thompson all but already having secured their starting gigs, there’s simply no room for Klein to assure himself of such a position in Carolina. The Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins, just a few teams in need of an inside presence at linebacker, could materialize as potential landing spots for Klein come March 9.
