According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed receiver Donnie Avery. Andy Reid took care of his best receiver Dwayne Bowe, and now he’s given him a partner in crime. The former Indianapolis Colts wideout, Avery came on in 2012 playing with rookie Andrew Luck and is cashing in on that performance. Avery adds speed to the outside giving quarterback Alex Smith a viable deep threat. Mike Wilkening of Profootballtalk.com writes: ‘The 28-year-old Avery caught 60 passes for 781 yards and three touchdowns for Indianapolis in 2012. You may recall his last-play, game-winning dash to beat the Lions in Detroit in December. Avery adds another playmaking presence to a Chiefs wide receiver corps led by Dwayne Bowe. Third-year wideout Jon Baldwin has also shown some flashes of promise.’     var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
