1. With several additions, Chiefs prioritize competition on offensive line

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"The beginning of the Chiefs' offseason workouts is still a month away, but that didn't stop coach Andy Reid from addressing every position on the offensive line at the annual NFL meetings on Tuesday at the Arizona Biltmore.

This was no coincidence. Along with wide receiver, the offensive line was one of the biggest problem spots during a 2014 season in which the Chiefs finished 9-7 but had some obvious limitations on offense.

Much of that, again, can be attributed to struggles by the offensive line, which the Chiefs have been aggressive in addressing since the start of the new league year on March 10."    READ MORE…

Mock Draft Roundup

Just a few of the potential picks the Chiefs could have in the 2015 draft.

2. Andy Reid admits to anxious moments before Jeremy Maclin signing

By Adam Teicher - ESPN

"Coach Andy Reid Tuesday admitted to some anxious moments before wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (pictured) officially joined the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent two weeks ago.

"The way this thing is set up right now, where you've got two or three days to talk to the agent, yet you're not allowed to do a deal, there's a whole lot of anxiety on everybody's part," Reid told reporters in Phoenix at the NFL meetings. "You can't talk to the player, and then you can't do a deal with the agent, but it's kind of dangled out there.

"To me, it's like college football where they have to send in (the letter of intent). There's this great anticipation at that particular moment. You're never quite sure until Jeremy is there and signing on the dotted line.""    READ MORE…

3. Coach Andy Reid likes Marcus Mariota, even if Chiefs can't draft him

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"It's always been a long shot that former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota would slip too far in this year's NFL Draft, which means the Chiefs — who draft No. 18 — are essentially out of the running.

However, at least one draft analyst has argued that Mariota would be a good fit for Chiefs coach Andy Reid's offense, and when asked about Mariota on Tuesday at the NFL's annual meetings, Reid noted that he has heard plenty of good things about the 6-foot-4, 222 pound Heisman Trophy winner.

"I didn't get an opportunity to visit with him, but I'll tell ya, he's a pretty good player," Reid said. "From afar, I listen to what his teammates say — I've got one on my team (De'Anthony Thomas) — and he goes, 'This guy is unbelievable.' Great leader, great person."    READ MORE…

4. Chiefs expecting bigger — and better — tight end Travis Kelce in 2015

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"It should come as no surprise the Chiefs have high expectations for Travis Kelce — he was their leading receiver in 2014, in what essentially amounted to his rookie season.

But Chiefs coach Andy Reid reiterated Tuesday that the 25-year-old Kelce, who caught 67 passes for 862 yards and five touchdowns, has not hit his ceiling yet.

"You'd think the natural progression would be even more and better, and he was pretty good last year," Reid said. "He's tremendously talented, loves to play the game. He's like a little kid out there. He loves to play.""    READ MORE…

5. With an eye on player safety, NFL approves six rule changes

By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star

"As of Tuesday night, the NFL's competition committee passed six rule changes that will go into effect next season, including five that were done in the name of player safety.

▪ A team-neutral spotter positioned in the press box will now be able to stop play if a player appears to be displaying obvious signs of disorientation or is clearly unstable."    READ MORE…
