The Rap Sheet:
Whenever a Patriots player is released or allowed to explore their free-agent options, the common line of thinking is that they’ll head to Kansas City, Atlanta or anywhere else with ties to coach Bill Belichick. That’s happening now as speculation heats up with Patriots RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
The 1,000-yard rusher from 2010 is going to be a free agent, and if he’s not signed with New England, even the Chiefs official website thinks it’s a possibility that Law Firm lands in Kansas City. With Scott Pioli as GM and former Pats defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel as head coach, it would make sense.
Yet Crennel said things have changed since he left New England. The schemes, for instance, aren’t the same. Oh, and don’t just think every player set loose by the Patriots is headed his way.
BEST OF MAXIM
Forget NFL rules about free agent tampering: New Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel says he would absolutely entertain the idea of bringing Peyton Manning to Kansas City if the Colts release the four-time NFL MVP quarterback.
"With a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available," said Crennel at the NFL Scouting Combine.

A few days ago, Romeo Crennel made a couple of remarks regarding two players — Peyton Manning and Chad Henne — that are still under contract with their respective teams.
That’s a big no-no to the NFL, who may now have no choice but to take action.
According to the Kansas City Star, Crennel is facing a fine and the Chiefs could be stripped of a draft pick for possible tampering...
Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel says his team would consider signing Peyton Manning -- if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent. Crennel made the comment Saturday at the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis. Manning's future has been a hot topic around the city for months, and with the likelihood the Colts will not pay a $28 million bonus by March 8 to keep...
Romeo Crennel could get fined and the Chiefs stripped of a draft choice for comments their head coach made at the NFL scouting combine.

Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel says his team would consider signing Peyton Manning -- if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel says his team would consider signing Peyton Manning -- if the four-time league MVP becomes a free agent.
Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, who used to help Bill Belichick pick the groceries in New England, was asked today about the difficulty in choosing receivers in the draft.
Pioli, of course, was the vice president of player personnel in New England when both Chad Jackson and Bethel Johnson were taken with high draft picks, only to wind up as busts.
”We had hits and...
Two top-notch Alabama prospects met with the media yesterday at the NFL Combine, and neither of the coach Nick Saban products talked about the Patriots. Go figure.
DL Josh Chapman said he didn’t know coach Bill Belichick, and OLB Courtney Upshaw said he didn’t watch the Patriots defense on TV, even though it’s so similar to Bama’s system. Oh well.
But both talks were noteworthy...
Knicks fans are generally conditioned to expect the worst. We've lived through the near-misses of the Pat Riley and Jeff Van Gundy years... Scott Layden's disastrous tenure as general manager... then Isiah Thomas' even-more-disastrous run. To quote well-known basketball philosopher Bruce Springsteen, we're "like a dog that's been beat too much."
