KANSAS CITY, Mo. So he runs. He runs for Joe, wherever the hell he is.
Probably under that same tree, in Washington Park, casting aspersions at the skies above. Or inside the gazebo, if it looks like rain.
"Every time I get to Cincinnati, I've got to make sure I stop by the park and see if I can catch Joe there," Mardy Gilyard chuckles. "He might be out running his 'errands,' or so he calls it."
And the new Kansas City Chiefs receiver shakes his head and laughs. He usually does when he thinks about Joe and his ahem errands.
"Joe actually went to UC." Gilyard continues, referring to their shared alma mater, the University of Cincinnati.
"And he is, I want to say, a biomechanical engineer. He was a rebel to society. He didnt want to abide by (any) rules. He lives on his own terms. And that was one of the most remarkable conversations, and one of the most remarkable people, I have ever run across."
Gilyard doesn't judge. ...

OTAs are all about finding out what a player can and can’t do and coach Andy Reid wants to know if Alex Smith can air it out.
It’s no secret that Reid likes the deep passing game, his west coast offense works the short range passes, but it’s all about taking shots downfield.
Smith was a so called ‘game manager’ in San Francisco, but in Kansas City it’s a whole new...
Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles would have drawn more attention for coming back from a knee injury, but Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson went ballistic with over 2,000 yards and took up most of the press.
However, a 1,500 yard rusher is hardly something to sneeze at and for Charles, he’s just getting started.
Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says that...
Being a head coach and general manager is a tough job even the best coaches fail at.
Bill Belichick is one of the few who make it look easy, but it’s not. Andy Reid while in Philadelphia ran the entire show, but in the end things snowballed to a point where both Reid and the Eagles had to hit the reset button.
Personnel decisions are complicated matters; it’s not just about...
When Andy Reid came to a mutual agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles to have an amicable parting of ways.
It wasn’t how it was supposed to end. Reid was the toast of the town up until 2011 and the dreaded ‘dream team’ that fell on their face.
However, for every bad happening there is a silver lining, in this case the Kansas City Chiefs.
Team chairman Clark Hunt can...
It’s a good thing that Clark Hunt likes the changes that were made with the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason.The owner of the ball club overhauled many management positions, including head coach and has brought in new players to a roster that although boasted a 2-14 record, was represented in the Pro Bowl by five starters.Somehow that seems impossible to fathom.This is a new look...
John Dorsey had a vision for what the Kansas City Chiefs should look like when the longtime Packers personnel man was hired as their general manager in January.
After nearly 50 roster moves and a month of offseason workouts under new coach Andy Reid, all designed to change the culture of a 2-14 franchise, that vision is slowly becoming a reality.
With a new quarterback in Alex...
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt made a rare appearance at mandatory minicamp Tuesday and walked away pleased with the progress the team has made under new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid.
Hunt has rarely attended practices the past few years, but said in January he wanted to take on a more visible role with the franchise that his late father Lamar founded during the AFL...
We’re all suckers for a steal on fantasy draft day. We scroll through pages of stats, looking for that diamond in the rough everyone else is going to miss. Sometimes we get him and he makes all the difference in the world on our fantasy roster. Sometimes we reach and our guy fails, leading to season-long ridicule from league-mates who are all too quick and happy to remind you of...

His X-rays came back negative. The running back had a career-high 1,509 rushing yards last season, and he's expected to be more involved in the passing game this season.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. And then, just like that, it was over.
The Kansas City Chiefs packed up their things Thursday, signed one another's playbooks, and traded tearful hugs. They vowed to write every week, even the slow ones. Andy Reid had somebody pump "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life" over those ginormous loudspeakers outside the University of Kansas Hospital Training...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Rachel Wray won't lie: She's itching for a fight. And this weekend, the former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader-turned-mixed-martial-artist plans on picking more than a few.
"I'm waiting for my fight to get scheduled, still," notes Wray, who says she's registered to compete in Saturday's Mid-America Open, an American Grappling Federation...
