NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL annual owners meetings are ongoing this week, and one of the week’s most unique events is called the coaches breakfast.

All 32 head coaches, including Andy Reid and familiar names like (Philadelphia Eagles head coach) Doug Pederson and (Chicago Bears head coach) Matt Nagy, are available in a roundtable, breakfast setting. Reid is usually a popular name even for those reporters outside of Kansas City, as he has many ties that extend to other teams’ coaching personnel.

Here is some Kansas City Chiefs-related news that came out of the breakfast:
