1. Chiefs in search of 'five best guys' on offensive line
By Herbie Teope - Associated Press
"The Chiefs spent part of the offseason upgrading an offensive line that played a large role in allowing 49 total sacks in 2014.
And it began Tuesday on the first day of organized team activities (OTAs) with Eric Fisher at left tackle, Grubbs at left guard, third-year pro Eric Kush was at center, Jeff Allen at right guard and Donald Stephenson at right tackle.
"We're kind of playing everybody in all different spots, so we don't even care," coach Andy Reid said. "Tomorrow will probably be different. We're going to find the five best guys, that's what we're trying to get to."" READ MORE…

4. Tamba Hali's role may be changing, but he's still valuable to Kansas City Chiefs
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
""Look at a guy like [Baltimore's Elvis] Dumervil," Hali said. "His role as any every-down player diminished. He didn't play as much last year but he made more plays. He had 17 sacks playing less last year. I played [most of] the time and I had six sacks. So maybe they're trying to figure out what works best and what's best for the team. I would love to be in there for those downs but if it's beneficial for our team ... the goal is the championship.
"If the coaches feel maybe I don't need to play the entire game, they're going to monitor it because the past couple of years, as the season goes on, my body starts to wear down. They may not want me to wear down. A guy like me, I'll keep playing until the wheels fall off but that might not be their plan. Their plan might be to find a way to keep me fresh for a long season.""
