(Eds: APNewsNow.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer Longtime Bills wide receiver Andre Reed is trying to break into coaching.
Reed is helping out the Kansas City Chiefs during training camp as a volunteer intern, working with their young wide receivers in preparation for their first preseason game.
Reed says that he had his pick of where he wanted to go, but that Chiefs coach Andy Reid made it clear to him that he was wanted in Kansas City.
Reed says that coaching has already been an eye-opening experience, particularly when it comes to the behind-the-scenes work.
He doesn't know how long his internship will last, or whether it will turn into a full-time job, but he appreciates the chance to get a fresh perspective on the game.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kevin Stinking Boss, kids.
That's right: A year ago at this time, on August 6, 2012, the Kansas City Chiefs' starting tight end on the first depth chart of the preseason was Kevin Boss. It gets better. Their No. 1 nose tackle was Anthony Toribio; one of the starting wideouts (thanks to Dwayne Bowe's holdout) was ... Steve Breaston.
Long way to go...
According to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs plan on using safety Eric Berry as a pass rusher as well as a linebacker in certain packages.
“I’m going to be all over the place,” Berry said
Berry has been forced to learn new positions.

St. Joseph, MO - When the Kansas City Chiefs signed former Missouri Tiger Quarterback, Chase Daniel, in the offseason, he came back to the Midwest after spending most of his NFL career in the big easy playing for the Saints. So how does he feel about going back to New Orleans Friday night to face his old team?
St. Joseph, MO – When the Kansas City Chiefs selected Central Michigan Left Tackle, Eric Fisher, with the top overall pick, they understood he’d begin his NFL career at right tackle. With the Chiefs first exhibition game a few days away, how does KC’s top pick feel about being a rookie starter?

St. Joseph, MO - In the latest edition of Warpaint Illustrated the Magazine, we salute the future stardom of Chiefs linebacker, Justin Houston. As one of the Chiefs brightest star, it appears this young man has no limits as he ascends his NFL ceiling.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer There were four players in the NFL last season who made at least seven interceptions.
Then there was the Kansas City Chiefs. They picked off seven, too.
It took dozens of lousy plays over the course of the season for the Chiefs to have one of the worst years in franchise history. But their inability to cause turnovers, particularly...
The top tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs a year ago currently resides third on the depth chart, trailing a veteran newcomer and a rather unheralded draft pick.
That alone is illustrative of a couple points.
First, the Chiefs didn't get a whole lot of production out of the position last year, when they fielded one of the worst offenses in the NFL. And second, new coach Andy...
St. Joseph, MO - A year ago Kansas City Chiefs Kicker, Ryan Succop, did something he’d not done in his NFL career to date, he missed some short kicks. None of them would have affected the outcome of the 2012 season. But nonetheless, it’s something that new Special Teams Coach, David Toub, is aiming to change.
The NFL preseason is a time of hopes, dreams and unrealistic expectations. And one team alone stands as the early King of Unrealistic Expectations in 2013: the new-look Kansas City Chiefs, fresh off the worst season in franchise history.
