For the first time former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli has opened up on the horrifying encounter he had back on December 1st. USAToday recanted Pioli’s interview on the Dan Patrick Show “Surreal doesn’t even do it justice,” “The truth is, I haven’t made sense of it all,…I don’t know if any one of us that were there will ever make sense of it.” Both Pioli and former head coach Romeo Crennel were at the scene of gruesome suicide. Belcher had driven the Chiefs’ facility and thanked both men for giving him an opportunity before he turned the gun on himself. Pioli admits to having struggled with what he witnessed, but doesn’t consider himself a victim. “The reality is i’m not unique,…This is happening all over our country. That’s the bigger picture you’ve got to start looking at as you try to get closure.” Pioli was let go as the team’s GM and has since been hired by NBCSports

But the Chiefs should still enter this offseason with the goal of finding their future franchise quarterback. Geno Smith is the early favorite to go No. 1 overall and will likely become Andy Reid’s...

Chiefs could end up re-signing Dwayne Bowe

Now that the Kansas City Chiefs have a new general manager and coaching staff, they could end up re-signing wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

Mel Kiper drops Manti Te’o out of his top 10

At one point ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. thought the Kansas City Chiefs should draft Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o with the first pick.  Now he’s dropped him out of his top 10. More of a sense now that Te’o is certain to drop some on positional value, a bigger issue than anything to do with the hoax. He has exceptional football instincts, a ton of experience and...
