1. Chiefs safety Kurt Coleman hasn't given up on being a starter

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"Kurt Coleman swears he wasn't necessarily trying to light the receiver up. Honest.

But it is telling, in way, that when asked about his massive third-quarter lick on Arizona's John Brown during the Chiefs' 17-14 loss on Dec. 7, Coleman couldn't help but nod and grin."    READ MORE…

2. A look at where Chiefs will draft in each round

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"This hardly will be a normal draft for the Kansas City Chiefs when the event rolls around in late April. The Chiefs are expecting four or more compensatory picks because of net losses in free agency last year and, assuming they receive exactly four, that total of 11 picks would be more than the Chiefs have had in one year since their bountiful draft of 2008.

But the NFL hasn't awarded the comp picks and probably won't until the league meetings in March. So for now, this looks like a normal draft for the Chiefs, meaning for the first time since 2012 they have one pick in every round. The Chiefs haven't had a second-round pick in the past two years, having sent each of those choices to the San Francisco 49ers in return for quarterback Alex Smith."    READ MORE…

3. Justin Houston's contract situation much different than that of Jared Allen

"The chances that the Kansas City Chiefs allow linebacker Justin Houston to leave as a free agent are slim. The Chiefs know how important Houston is and, at age 26, that he should have many good seasons left in him.

Still, it's worth noting that according to ESPN Stats and Information, the Chiefs were involved one of the two times a reigning NFL sack leader opened a season with a different team. In 2008, the Chiefs traded defensive end Jared Allen, who led the NFL in sacks in 2007, to the Minnesota Vikings for a package of draft picks. The Chiefs with one of those picks, a third-rounder, drafted a running back from Texas, Jamaal Charles. So the trade worked out for the Chiefs."    READ MORE…

5. Broncos OC: 'No rush' on Peyton

By Jeff Lefwold - ESPN.com

"The Denver Broncos want to know if Peyton Manning will return for one more season, but they're willing to wait for his answer.

New offensive coordinator Rick Dennison shrugged off concerns Tuesday that he won't be able to build out his playbook without knowing who starts at quarterback."    READ MORE…
