Chiefs’ Eric Berry maintains he will not play ’17 season under franchise tag | The Kansas City Star

"I’m going to keep being patient because you never know," Berry said. "Last year I thought one thing and it didn’t happen. So I’m not getting my hopes up; I’m looking at it logically."

Chiefs players unanimously vote Eric Berry team MVP | The Kansas City Star

And for that, Berry — who delivered a second consecutive all-pro season with shades of dominance unlike the 22-sack contract season that helped Houston earn a $101 million extension — was announced as the Derrick Thomas Team MVP at the 101 Awards on Sunday night.

Joe Montana vs. Steve Young: The alternate Super Bowl 28 | Niners Nation

In the video above, SB Nation video guru Clay Wendler played through those playoffs again, and the 49ers and Chiefs both advanced this time around. The two sides put together a thrilling Super Bowl in the video, but I won’t give away the ending. Give it a watch!

Chiefs' Alex Smith the perfect fit for Jets, says Boomer Esiason | NJ.com

"I know that's not going to excite anybody," Esiason told NJ Advance Media Friday before a charity hockey game at Montclair State University. The game raised money for the New Jersey Golf Foundation and Boomer Esiason Foundation, which supports cystic fibrosis research and treatment.

C.J. Spiller, Jamaal Charles and the current state of the Chiefs running backs | Arrowhead Addict

The move for Spiller gives the Chiefs a bit more crowded backfield as they attempt to sift out the best options for the final 53-man roster. For a veteran like Spiller who has bounced around a few teams, it will be an uphill climb to make the final roster, but crazier things have happened before. Just two seasons ago, Joe McKnight was a veteran running back with the New York Jets coming off of a serious injury and hoping to make his mark once again. Despite odds stacked against him, he made the roster and even made some memorable plays for the Chiefs that season.

Report: NFL teams objecting to Scouting Combine exclusion rule | Sportsnaut.com

In general, changing the rule makes sense. Teams will scout who they want — doing it all in one weekend makes sense.

Walkie-Talkie Foulup Ends Up Costing Giants 10 Draft Slots | Fanrag Sports

New York’s fourth-round pick will plummet 10 draft slots, falling from No. 130 to 140 as a result of the infraction. While it pales in comparison to the New England Patriots’ "Deflate-Gate" penalties, or to the Kansas City Chiefs’ Jeremy Maclin related tampering violation, the Giants will have to make a slight adjustment in preparation.

Bobby Richardson signed by Denver Broncos for DL depth | Predominantly Orange

Richardson was a starter for 11 games with the New Orleans Saints as a rookie in 2015, and looked to be a very nice find in the undrafted free agent pool that year. The Saints let Richardson go in September this past season, and he was picked up by the Redskins, signed to their practice squad. After a short stint with Washington, Richardson signed to the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad, and was let go in November.

If released, Jamaal Charles could be intriguing option for Eagles | ESPN

The market will only grow over the next couple of weeks as teams make salary cuts. One name worth pondering if he shakes loose is Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. The 30-year-old veteran is set to count more than $6 million against the cap in 2017. The Chiefs, who have only about $5 million in cap space at the moment, just signed C.J. Spiller on Friday, fueling speculation that Charles might be on the move.
