"Linebacker Justin Houston was asked on ESPN's "First Take" Tuesday morning whether he believes the Chiefs can win a Super Bowl with Alex Smith at quarterback.

"Nebraska may not offer a scholarship to any quarterback in the 2015 recruiting class, but Husker coaches are pursuing a top name for a walk-on spot: Kansas City Rockhurst quarterback T.J. Green, whose dad is former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Trent Green.

Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf was in Kansas City on Monday to see T.J. Green, a 6-foot-1, 185-pounder. Langsdorf offered Green a walk-on spot. Rockhurst coach Tony Severino — who has sent Rockhurst alums Michael Rose-Ivey and Zach Hannon to Nebraska in recent years — said Green will consider the offer along with a grayshirt offer from Wake Forest. Green has turned down several FCS offers, including one to North Dakota State, which just won another FCS title. He also visited Stanford to consider a preferred walk-on spot there last weekend."    READ MORE…

5. Pats to be smart vs. Richard Sherman

By Jeff Legwold - ESPN.com

" New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Tuesday that an offense can't avoid Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman all the time, but by the same token, "You can't not be smart and just throw at him because you're just trying to throw at him."

During the Patriots' session in Super Bowl XLIX media day, McDaniels said the team is still working through how it will attack the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" secondary but that Sherman has to be part of the equation."    READ MORE…
