The Football Fan Spot:
Mike DeVito is a nice under the radar signing for the Chiefs. He’s pretty one dimensional, but he’s really good at what he does and that’s tie up blockers on running downs in a 3-4. He’s offers no pass rush, but he was ProFootballFocus’ 7th rated 3-4 defensive end against the run and 3 years, 12.6 million is fairly reasonable for him. The problem is that he and Tyson Jackson are very similar players. Those two should be their starters at five-technique this season, but both should be taken off the field in sub packages so the Chiefs will have to find at least one, if not two, nickel rushing defensive linemen. Someone else has to get to the quarterback other than Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. They can’t do it alone as they ranked 29th in the NFL in sacks and 28th in the NFL on ProFootballFocus at rushing the passer in spite of that talented duo. There will be options for them early in the 3rd round when they pick.

You can’t have enough people who can cover, and the Kansas City Chiefs seem to be following that philosophy.
After signing cornerback Dunta Robinson, it seemed the team would be set to move on to other needs, but with the explosion of spread offenses, the Chiefs feel they still need one more quality cover guy.
According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the Chiefs are still...
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Kansas City Chiefs are trying to trade quarterback Matt Cassel. If they can’t move him, they’ll be forced to cut him.
Chiefs are trying to trade Matt Cassel, I’m told. No surprise. Interested parties? Look at Vikings, Cardinals, Bucs. Otherwise he’ll be cut

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the Kansas City Chiefs might ask quarterback Alex Smith to restructure his contract.
Hearing that KC might ask QB Alex Smith to restructure his contract for a little cap room. No cut, just shift.

With Smith’s cap number st $8.5 million, restructuring his contract would free up more money...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. To many outside observers, it appeared Alex Smith was somewhat OK with his benching last fall in San Francisco.
In fact, teammates lauded Smith for his unselfishness and his team-first attitude after he was replaced by Colin Kaepernick.
Well, the truth is, Smith may have been unselfish and a great teammate at the time, but he was anything but OK with the benching...
Donnie Avery has signed a three-year, $8.55 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.Fantasy Spin:Avery experienced a resurgence with the Colts in 2012 with 60 receptions for 781 yards and three touchdowns. He'll likely be the Chiefs No. 2 receiver across from Dwayne Bowe in 2013.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Chiefs aren't exactly stockpiling Joe Montana and Steve Young at the quarterback position these days.
But the Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are wasting no time creating a new depth chart at the position.
On the same day the team's trade for San Francisco's Alex Smith finally became official, the Chiefs also reportedly added free-agent...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs have reached an agreement with defensive lineman Glenn Dorsey.
And 49ers have reached agreement with former Chiefs DT Glenn Dorsey.

Dorsey will be a nice addition for the 49ers. He’s very underrated as a run stopper and will only help with Justin Smith not getting any...
Mike Devito and Sione Pouha are gone. Laron Landry is visiting the Colts and the impending doom that Revis Island is on his way out hangs over the fan base like a guillotine. David Garrard is now a Jet. Affordable “Upside potential” players like Mike Goodson and Brandon Gibson are coming to visit.
That may not enough for some
Jet fans but they better get used to it. Rebuilding...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the 49ers have reached an agreement with free agent DT Glenn Dorsey.
The Chiefs reportedly wanted to keep Dorsey, but after they signed Mike DeVito it became clear that Dorsey would most likely be playing elsewhere next season.
San Francisco lost Isaac Sopoaga and Ricky Jean-Francois is unlikely to be back, so makes sense for them to bolster their...

While covering the first day of free agency, NFL Network brought on former Chiefs GM Scott Pioli to do a live interview on Total Access. During the interview, Warren Sapp was off-camera and didn’t realize his mic was on. They started to discuss the New England Patriots draft strategy and Sapp can be heard muttering, “oh s*** no no no, it’s the same f****** speech we had...
Just a year after signing Sione Po'uha to a three-year, $15 million contract the Jets have released the 34-year-old nose tackle.Back issues were a constant problem for Po'uha last season and when he was actually able to get on the field he didn't resemble anything close to the Po'uha of year's past, as he constantly got pushed around.Releasing Po'uha frees...
