(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The Kansas City Chiefs weren't exactly in shambles when John Dorsey and Andy Reid first walked through the door. After all, the team did have six Pro Bowl players on the roster. That doesn't mean the Chiefs weren't in need of an extreme makeover. over the past couple months, that's exactly what Dorsey and Reid have done. They made bold moves in free agency, trading for quarterback Alex Smith and signing such players as Anthony Fasano and Donnie Avery. They also locked up some of their own players, signing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe to a long-term deal. They plugged most of the rest of their holes in last weekend's draft, and now eagerly await the start of organized team activities to see exactly where they're at in their rebuilding.

Kansas City Chiefs: 2013 NFL Draft Review

For those who didn’t read my work last year or the year before, I’ll explain that I do not give out a letter grade a day or two after the NFL Draft ends. I think that’s like grading students before they’ve even took the test. What I do, is review if the teams met their draft needs and if not, why. I’ll be taking a look at every pick for every team, excluding undrafted...

There's no point in bellyaching over the Chiefs' third QB

KANSAS CITY, Mo. You wanted Matt Barkley. We get that. We get that youd have been happy with Ryan Nassib, because he was universally touted as being a first-round talent that is, right up until the part where the first round actually happened. And, heck, wasnt Tyler Wilson supposed to fit, hand-in-glove, with a West Coast Offense? But get this, kids: Between 1991-2011, a healthy...

Andy Reid Has Eaten at 50 Barbecue Joints, Hasn’t Found One He Doesn’t Like

This is the most Andy Reid quote ever. Perhaps the reasoning behind picking Kansas City as his latest coaching destination had more behind it than just a solid roster and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Plenty of people joked about how much barbecue Reid would consume after moving to Kansas City, but no one could have predicted it was this much. Andy Reid during his...

Chiefs rumors: Branden Albert to Dolphins could still happen

The NFL Draft came and went and Branden Albert is still a member of the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Dolphins still haven't filled the void left by offensive lineman Jake Long, who signed a free agent contract...

Andy Reid: I wear Tommy Bahama shirts to hide the cheeseburgers

If you watched the 2013 NFL Draft, and noticed the Kansas City Chiefs war room, you might have seen a curious sight. Head coach, Andy Reid, wearing a rather colorful shirt.

Andy Reid Says He’s Already Ate at 50 BBQ Joints in Kansas City

I am being dead serious, Reid might have chosen the Chiefs job just for the food. I would like to think Reid is exaggerating, but something tells me he might not be. Andy Reid during his interview with @adamschein: “I’ve eaten at about 50 Kansas City BBQ places and I haven’t found one I don’t like.” #nice — Andrew Catalon (@AndrewCatalon) May 1, 2013 Curious to see how...

Geno Smith Fires Agent Due To Draft Slide

Geno Smith just showed the fans and his critics that he deserved to fall to the 2nd round before being selected, due to personal issues that dropped his stock. Word was going around the war rooms that Geno Smith had a selfish attitude and poor ways of handling disappointments. A franchise quarterback doesn't blame others for his mistake or failures.A franchise quarterback is...
