Is Miami Hurricanes Basketball Player Erik Swoope Worth Using a Draft Pick On?

Finding the diamond in the rough; the untapped superstar is something NFL teams are always trying to do. It's not easy to do of course, but sometimes you can roll the dice with a person that fits the right prototype. With the success that some basketball players have had in the NFL (Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham, Julian Thomas) it certainly isn't a bad idea to look towards...

The Kansas City Chiefs have a history with receivers

With the dust settling on the second day of NFL free agency, the Chiefs have signed two new players: offensive linemen Jeff Linkenbach from the Indianapolis Colts and linebacker Joe Mays, previously of the Houston Texans. Given the Chiefs’ salary cap situation, they may only have enough room to sign one more free agent, unless of course they restructure some of their existing contracts...

Could the Chiefs try to snag one of the top free agent tight ends?

Our cover32 editorial staff released its top ten list for free agent tight ends today. There’s no doubt the Chiefs need some help at tight end. While Anthony Fasano certainly isn’t a bad player, he is not an explosive option at the position. He only caught 23 balls for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Not having a threat at the position in today’s NFL is a hinderance to the...

Will Champ Bailey win a Super Bowl ring?

There have been great NFL players who never had the honor of hoisting the Lombardi trophy. Players like Dan Marino, Tony Gonzalez, and Randy Moss are all Hall of Fame players but have never won a Super Bowl; Champ Bailey certainly hopes that he does not join them in that category. Bailey came into the NFL as a world class talent with blazing speed and was mentored by Deion Sanders...

Will Chiefs be looking for next Tony Gonzalez or Megatron in the draft?

So, hey, let's talk about the NFL Draft, a subject always good to cheer up even the most depressed football fan. The Chiefs will get the 23rd overall pick in this year's draft and, like most teams, their draft needs are spread across the roster -- safety, tight end...

Larry Johnson reportedly strip-club DJ

When Larry Johnson was a durable, grind-it-out running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, racking up consecutive 1,700-yard rushing seasons in 2005 and 2006, he used to go to work with guys named Tony Gonzalez, Eddie Kennison and Trent Green. These days, he reportedly has a hobby where there's still grinding involved, but the co-workers are more likely to have names like Destinee...

Fantasy Football Trades: Big Names, Low Price

Tony Gonzalez: Saying Goodbye to an All Time Great
