@adamteicher #ChiefsMail My question is with all these good pick ups at key positions of need where or what do Chiefs do at Pick 18?

@adamteicher: That's the good thing for the Chiefs about signing wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, safety Tyvon Branch and offensive lineman Paul Fanaika and trading for another offensive lineman, Ben Grubbs. They've greatly reduced the number of must-have positions. I wouldn't be surprised at this point at much the Chiefs would do as far as position in the first round."    READ MORE…

3. Greg Jennings' bumpy ride with Vikings is over

By Ben Goessling - ESPN

"MINNEAPOLIS -- To borrow a phrase from former Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress, originally uttered when talking about a very different kind of receiver than Greg Jennings, there always seemed to be something about Jennings that was a bit of a programmatic nonfit in Minnesota.

Jennings, who began his career bathed in quarterback stability and caught two touchdowns in Super Bowl XLV from Aaron Rodgers, spent a good chunk of his introductory news conference talking up Christian Ponder. He traded enough barbs with Rodgers through public comments that former coach Leslie Frazier had to tell him to stop during his first training camp. By his sixth game in Minnesota, he'd played a game with as many starting QBs (three) as he'd had in seven seasons in Green Bay. He only caught a touchdown pass from one of them (Matt Cassel) in his first season with the Vikings. And in his second, Jennings had played with three different starters by Week 5, as he worked to shift from a career in the West Coast offense to an Air Coryell-based attack."    READ MORE…

4. Rex Ryan: Bills got stronger, Patriots didn't

By Mike Rodak - ESPN

"Leaning back in his office chair Thursday morning with one foot against his desk, Rex Ryan gave a thumbs-up to the Buffalo Bills' aggressive moves during the first week of free agency and was unafraid to add his unfiltered take on Buffalo's division rival, the New England Patriots.

"I feel pretty good about what we've added," Ryan told Toronto's SportsNet 590. "So we'll see. ... I think the conference really got stronger. If anything, it currently doesn't look – if you can say winners and losers in free agency – obviously New England had to cut quite a few players.

"So obviously they don't look as strong as they did. I certainly hope they're not. They just got through winning the Super Bowl. But I believe the rest of the division really has got stronger. I don't think there's any doubt about that. I truly believe that we got stronger.""    READ MORE…

5. Cowboys agree to deal with LB Andrew Gachkar

By Todd Archer - ESPN

"IRVING, Texas -- Having lost two linebackers in free agency, the Dallas Cowboys added one Sunday by agreeing to a two-year deal with Andrew Gachkar.

Gachkar, 26, spent the last four seasons with the San Diego Chargers. He started five games last season and was credited by the coaches with 47 tackles to go along with seven tackles for loss, one sack, one fumble recovery and two pass deflections.

He is considered an excellent special-teamer and spent the first two years of his career playing for Cowboys special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia. Gachkar had 16 special-teams tackles in 2014. The Cowboys also lost their leading special-teams tackler in free agency when Dwayne Harris signed with the New York Giants."    READ MORE…
