This is gonna be as fun to watch as a train wreck. Biggest mismatch in NFL history. Reid is a thrower 65%+ of the time. Hardbaugh made the best out of smith as a limited factor and time manager. Smith is gonna throw himself to a 40 passer rating. Oh Andy always trying to put that square peg in the round hole won't he ever learn. Tongue

Son of a  ahhhhh

Chiefs agreed to terms with CB Sean Smith, formerly of the Dolphins, on a three-year contract.
The news — which was first "reported" by Smith's former teammate Vontae Davis two weeks ago — comes via Smith's agent. He joins Brandon Flowers and Dunta Robinson to form one of the league's better cornerback trios, though Robinson could still end up at safety. It's the same failed strategy Andy Reid adopted in Philadelphia, but he's willing to give it a second chance as division-rival Denver transforms itself into an offensive colossus. Regardless of where Robinson plays, Smith will bookend Flowers on the outside. The Chiefs might not be ready to compete for a playoff spot, but are going to be a far tougher out in 2013.

Where Do Kansas City Chiefs Stand in the AFC West Now? 

BY BRETT GERING (FEATURED COLUMNIST) ON MARCH 29, 2013 7,494 reads 13

USA TODAY Sports
The Kansas City Chiefs' offseason makeover has hogged the NFL spotlight as of late, but where does the team stand in Peyton Manning's AFC West playground?

Buyer beware: Chiefs fans entered the 2012 season with the same brand of optimism currently circulating throughout the City of Fountains. And that optimism revealed a cruel 2-14 prank.

Kansas City will improve, but to what extent is anybody's guess. A new head coach, Andy Reid, will teach an unfamiliar system to a fresh batch of players. And on the heels of last season, Kansas Citians are well aware that coaching transitions don't transpire without bumps in the road (or in the Chiefs' case, barricades).

Reid and general manager John Dorsey have trimmed the roster's fat, but new faces in new places don't guarantee that Kansas City will surpass its division rivals.

The following rankings are based on the teams' current pre-draft rosters.

Former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, projected by many to be the first quarterback selected in April's NFL draft, is scheduled to visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday.

  • Enlarge
Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports
Geno Smith, pictured here taking part in a passing drill at the scouting combine, told USA Today Sports that he's "not going to put my hope or my eggs in one team's basket."
It's the first stop on his "World Tour," as he labeled it in an interview with USA Today Sports last week. He said he'll "be going Monday to Friday, working out for different teams."

Smith is scheduled to arrive in Kansas City later Monday. He will spend extensive time with the Chiefs' staff Tuesday.

The Chiefs hold the No. 1 overall pick and new coach Andy Reid said his team has not closed the door on picking Smith in that spot.

"I hope Kansas City is legitimately interested. I hope I go No. 1, but, hey, we'll see," Smith told USA Today on Friday in a telephone interview. "The Chiefs are bringing me in, so I'm going in there thinking that they're interested [in me], because I am in them."

Smith threw for 4,205 yards and led the nation with 42 touchdown passes for the Mountaineers this past season.

He impressed at West Virginia's pro day March 14, completing 60 of 64 throws in a workout attended by all but three NFL teams.

The Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles also conducted private workouts with Smith earlier this month.

Smith told USA Today that he will meet again with the Bills this week. It's unknown what level of interest Buffalo still has in selecting Smith, however, after agreeing to a two-year, $13 million contract with quarterback Kevin Kolb on Saturday.

Smith also told USA Today that he met with New York Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and executive Terry Bradway before his pro day, but nothing "extensive" was discussed.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Chip Kelly are among the NFL decision-makers to give positive reviews about the quarterback after meeting with him.

"All of the teams have been really impressed with me, they've all said good things," Smith told USA Today. "I'm not going to put my hope or my eggs in one team's basket. All of them have shown a high level of interest. It's not a case where I know of one team being more interested.

Kansas City Chiefs Defensive Backs Face a Big Challenge in 2013

In order to fill the loss of Brandon Carr and replace Stanford Routt, who had a disappointing run with the Kansas City Chiefs, general manager John Dorsey immediately signed cornerbacks Sean Smith from Miami and Dunta Robinson from Atlanta.

The Kansas City’s cornerbacks are currently led by Brandon Flowers.   Javier Arenas and Jalil Brown saw a lot of playing time last year, and could be part of the team by the time the Chiefs form their 53-man roster after training camp.

The Chiefs also have Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis as projected starters at the safety positions next year.

As always, teams will need their players to stay healthy. But in 2013, it is crucial that the defensive backs in Kansas City avoid missing games due to injuries and suspensions.

In today’s passing-centric NFL, teams must not only have quarterbacks who can throw over or come close to 5,000 yards, but also an offense where quarterbacks have reliable wide receivers and tight ends to throw to.

The schedule has yet to be released but the Chiefs know they’ll be facing a lot of top-notch pass-catchers this season.

Below are some of the notable wide receivers and tight ends Kansas City will go up against.

Steve Johnson, (TE) Scott Chandler

Cleveland

Dallas

Denver

Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Trindon Holliday

Houston

Andre Johnson, (TE) Owen Daniels

Indianapolis

Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Darrius Heyward-Bey

Jacksonville

Cecil Shorts, Justin Blackmon

New York Giants

Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, (TE) Brandon Myers

Oakland

Denarius Moore

Philadelphia

DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, (TE) Brent Celek

San Diego

Malcom Floyd, Danario Alexander, (TE) Antonio Gates

Tennessee

Nate Washington, Kenny Britt

Washington

Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan

 

In the list above, nine of the 20 players caught over 1,000 receiving yards while others came close. Despite the tough challenge ahead, Kansas City can pass the test in 2013 with the help of its playmakers on defense.

The Chiefs biggest strength is its defense. Kansas City sent three linebackers to the Pro Bowl in January, including outside linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

 
Joe Robbins/Getty Images
The biggest key to success for Kansas City’s defensive backs is having Hali and Houston apply pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Ever since Houston became the primary starter opposite of Hali midway through his rookie season in 2011, the Chiefs have been able to provide dominant pass rushers from both ends of the linebacking corps.

Kansas City’s defensive backs will collect a lot of interceptions if Hali and Houston continue that dominance and force opposing quarterbacks to throw ill-advised passes. The pass-rushing and the defensive backs will be the key in helping the Chiefs bounce back and be more competitive in 2013.

The Chiefs have a good coaching staff in linebackers coach Gary Gibbs and defensive backs coach Emmitt Thomas, who were the only coaches retained from the previous regime. The Chiefs added former Packers cornerback Al Harris as an assistant secondary coach while Bob Sutton serves as the defensive coordinator. With the right coaching staff and the right players, the Chiefs' defense should be able to handle the group of pass catchers that they face this season.

The rest will be up to the offense to put the team ahead and win games.

Kansas City Chiefs

A guard has never been selected with the first pick of the NFL draft, and the Kansas City Star's Randy Covitz says, "If ever there were a year for a guard to go first overall, this could be it." Will the Chiefs make it happen?

The Chiefs have contacted veteran offensive lineman Ryan Lilja about playing another season, and he was receptive to the idea, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. Lilja, who is still rehabbing from surgeries on his knee and toe, is not likely to sign a deal soon, the newspaper reports.

Reid Ferrin of the team's website profiles USC quarterback Matt Barkley as a draft prospect.

Kansas City Chiefs reportedly want Ryan Lilja to return

With questions swirling about what will happen with the Kansas City Chiefs' offensive tackle positions, the team might try solidifying the inside of the line with a familiar face.

Best and Worst Draft Picks

Who are the best and worst draft picks your team has ever made? Find out and let your voice be heard. More...
The Chiefs approached veteran offensive lineman Ryan Lilja about returning for the 2013 season, The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday.

Lilja, 31, indicated after last season that he would retire, but he was receptive to the idea of returning, according to The Star.

The eight-year pro played the last three seasons on the interior of the Chiefs' line. In 2012, he moved from guard to center after Rodney Hudson broke his leg during the third game of the season.

Lilja is rehabbing from surgeries on his knee and toe, and no deal is imminent, The Star reported.

A versatile lineman, Lilja played well after his position switch last season for the 12th-ranked offensive line, according to Pro Football Focus.

If Lilja does return, it will be to add depth and insurance to the line. Hudson is slotted to return at center, Jeff Allen and Jon Asamoah are returning at the guard spots and the Chiefs also signed Geoff Schwartz, who can play both guard and tackle. However, Allen struggled last season after being forced into the lineup as a rookie, and Lilja might be great insurance if Allen doesn't improve as projected.

With the draft less than two weeks away, here’s a look at the running back situation for each team in the division:


 Jamaal Charles is a great player who could even step up his production, especially as a receiver, in Andy Reid’s offense. He is a big play waiting to happen but also consistently churns out yardage even when his blocking isn’t superb. Expect a huge year from Charles in 2013. That said, the Chiefs would be wise to address the No. 2 running back spot in the draft or late in free agency with a bigger back to complement Charles. Right now, Shaun Draughn and Cyrus Gray, both heading into their second full seasons, are the only backups of note. Draughn carried the ball 59 times and caught 24 passes in 2012; Gray touched the ball only nine times during his rookie season. Reid could further utilize Draughn’s pass-catching skills, but he really was a liability in protection last season. The Chiefs need more from Draughn and Gray in 2013, and should find an improvement elsewhere.
