Posted May 16, 2013 on AP on Fox
The Kansas City Chiefs shook up their scouting department Thursday by hiring Will Lewis as director of pro scouting and Marvin Allen as the director of college scouting. Lewis spent 13 years with the Seahawks, most recently as vice president of football operations. Allen spent the past four years as a national scout with the Falcons. The Chiefs also hired Randy Ball to be their pro scouting assistant and Trey Koziol to serve as an area scout, and promoted Mike Borgonzi to assistant director of pro scouting, Dom Green to assistant director of college scouting, Brett Veach to pro and college personnel analyst and Ryan Poles to college coordinator.

Andy Reid on linebacker Akeem Jordan: ‘He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes’

Akeem Jordan was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2007 out of James Madison University. He spent six years with the Eagles under Andy Reid and when Reid moved on to Kansas City, Jordan was one of his first transactions. Jordan agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in April reuniting with Reid. He has the first crack at...

Dwayne Bowe says he’ll lead the NFL in receptions and touchdowns in 2013

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is one pretty confident person.  He told the Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star that he’ll lead the league this season in receptions and touchdowns.  He also believes in running back Jamaal Charles and said he’ll be the league leader in rushing. I think Bowe is a heck of a receiver, but I can’t imagine the Chiefs throwing the...

Kansas City Chiefs Sign Draft Pick Braden Wilson

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed 2013 NFL Draft Pick, 204th overall Braden Wilson to a four-year contract. He has a tough road ahead of him making the 53-man roster as he really contributes lead blocking and nothing else; something that is getting waned out some in the National Football League. Expect him to either latch on as a special teams player or be added to someones practice...

Dwayne Bowe predicts he'll lead NFL in catches and TDs; is that realistic?

The last time the Kansas City Chiefs got competent and consistent play from the quarterback position, in 2010, Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe led the league with 15 touchdown catches. So with Alex Smith coming to KC to bring some much-needed competency to the quarterback position, it wouldn't be far-fetched to imagine Bowe returning to the top of touchdown mountain in 2013...

Chiefs defense wins day during offseason workouts

The Kansas City Chiefs defense has lived by the bend-but-don't-break mantra the past few years under Romeo Crennel. Well, that's out the window now. New defensive coordinator Bob Sutton would prefer to attack from the word, ''Hike,'' and during the first week of organized team activities, his players have taken quite the shine to it. The Chiefs only intercepted...

Alex Smith already becoming leader of Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It hasn't taken long for Alex Smith to become the leader of the Kansas City Chiefs. The weight of the franchise was foisted upon his shoulders from the very second word leaked out that former No. 1 draft pick would be sent from the San Francisco 49ers to the Chiefs during a topsy-turvy offseason. If he wasn't considered the leader in the huddle then...

Andy Reid sold his 5-XL shorts, Crocs and a bird house at his Philly garage sale

According to ESPN’s Shelley Smith via The Big Lead, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was able to sell some of his 5-XL shorts, Crocs and a bird house at the garage sale he organized in Philadelphia. I’m sure the person who got the 5-XL shorts is happy.  I know I’ve never seen that size in a regular store.  They could also sell the shorts since they’re the one’s that Reid himself...

Dwayne Bowe: “I’m going to lead the league in receptions”

Photo Credit: Wide receivers are known as one of the most positions to have guys with extreme confidence, which often leads to their diva tendencies. Dwayne Bowe is definitely not an exception to the confidence rule, or maybe he just doesn’t know who Calvin or Andre Johnson are. I say this because apparently Bowe is under the impression he is going to lead the...

There are discrepancies in Eric Berry's story of his fear of horses

One of the better moments captured by NFL Films this last fall was Chiefs safety Eric Berry's skittish reaction to seeing a horse on the field. As you can see below, Berry's full attention is on the horse (named Warpaint) and not the game itself.   It didn't take long for this footage to go semi viral. Since it aired, I've always been somewhat curious as...
