At one point Tuesday, the old Kansas City Chiefs coach grabbed the new one Andy Reid as if he were a teddy bear, grinning with every step. "I've seen this practice before, in Philadelphia," Vermeil said after the Chiefs concluded the first day of their final spring mini-camp inside the team's indoor training complex. "But a very impressive football practice. Very, very impressive practice. "(General manager) John Dorsey's done a nice job with (the) talent here now, and Andy's having a lot of fun. It's just he's rejuvenated. You can tell. And I've been with him through all different moods over the last few years. And you're very fortunate to have Andy Reid." The Chiefs are fortunate to have Vermeil, too, given the benefit of hindsight. In January, when chairmanCEO Clark Hunt was vetting candidates to replace the fired Romeo Crennel, he...
