1. An early look at seven free agents who might be good fits for the Chiefs
By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star
"The start of free agency is still nearly a month and a half away (March 10), but the Chiefs' primary needs are crystal clear — offensive line, receiver and linebacker — and it's never too early to take a look at pending free agents who might look good in red and gold.
Here are seven players who could interest the Chiefs come March, with their vitals, stats and analysis of their current situation with the help of cap analyst and former agent Joel Corry. Corry projects the Chiefs to be right at the projected cap of $142 million for 2015, but they can create a significant amount of cap room by making some difficult decisions." READ MORE…

2. DAT: the Year in Review
By Pete Sweeney - kcchiefs.com
"Running back De'Anthony Thomas, the Chiefs' fourth-round pick out of the University of Oregon, was an intriguing player to watch from day one forward in St. Joseph, Missouri.
Immediately, head coach Andy Reid and his staff realized what they had on their hands was an athlete with a multitude of capabilities." READ MORE…
3. Mailbag: Potential cap casualties for Chiefs?
By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com
"@mike57x - Some big decisions ahead this offseason. Tamba, DJ, or Mike Devito. You can only keep one - who do you take?
@adamteicher: You're right, some big decisions are ahead for the Chiefs. As for your question, let's assume that Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito will return healthy, as I understand the expectation to be. I think of the three, Johnson is the most important player for the Chiefs. He, like Tamba Hali, plays in all situations, pass or run. DeVito is mainly a run defender. But the Chiefs really missed Johnson last season and have nobody under contract available to take his place. They drafted Ford to be Hali's eventual replacement. But money factors in as well. The cap numbers for 2015: Hali almost $12 million, DeVito $5.4 million, Johnson $5.25 million. Here's how much each would cost the Chiefs if he was released: Johnson $5.25 million, Hali $5 million, DeVito $4 million. So Johnson would also cost the Chiefs less to keep than the others."

4. 100 days, 100 players: No. 13 Aaron Murray
By Gerry Hamilton - ESPN.com
"Murray was an accomplished quarterback coming out of Tampa (Florida) Plant High School. In April 2008, Murray picked Georgia over childhood favorite Florida due in large part to his comfort level and relationship with Mark Richt and then-Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. Murray was part of a Top 10 Georgia class that included Orson Charles, Marlon Brown, Abry Jones, Zach Mettenberger and Branden Smith.
After redshirting in 2009, Murray started 13 games in 2010, passing for 3,049 yards and 24 touchdowns, earning All-SEC Freshman Team honors from the league's coaches." READ MORE…
5. The road to the Super Bowl wasn't easy for Seattle and New England
By Randy Covtiz - The Kansas City Star
"This is a look back at how the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots arrived at Super Bowl XLIX. Seattle Seahawks
High point: Coming back from trailing 19-7 in the fourth quarter and stunning Green Bay 28-22 in overtime to win the NFC Championship Game was so dramatic it could render the Super Bowl as anti-climactic for the Seahawks. The unlikely comeback included a touchdown pass off a fake field goal, the recovery of an onside kick, an improbable two-point conversion and a walk-off touchdown pass on the sixth play of overtime."
