The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web


Yes, David, I do. I could easily see The Law Firm practicing in Kansas City in 2012. The Chiefs will likely be looking for a running back to pair with Jamaal Charles, who is coming back from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 2. Veteran Thomas Jones likely won’t be brought back and while Jackie Battle likely could have a future in Kansas City, an upgrade may be needed.

The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has signed free agent defensive back Kyle McCarthy. He spent the last two seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he saw action in 12 games with four tackles (two solo) and three special teams stops.

The name definitely draws a reaction, doesn’t it?

Cooter takes over Sirianni’s old job and has the necessary coaching and playing background to perform many of Sirianni’s previous duties.

A former college quarterback at Tennessee, Cooter worked with Peyton Manning in Indianapolis (which has already caused natural speculation from some fans) while assisting Colts offensive coordinators Tom Moore and Clyde Christensen.

It didn’t indicate who would give Cassel the competition. The team could re-sign Kyle Orton — he went 2-1 as the starter to finish the season after Cassel was lost for the season with a broken hand. The Chiefs could pursue a quarterback in the draft or in free agency or they could give second-year player Ricky Stanzi a chance.

The incentive and opportunity are there for the Bengals to be proactive in free agency. Cincinnati carried more than $15 million of unused cap money from last year and has $60 million to spend. Only three teams (the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers) have more cap space. With 20 players headed to free agency, the Bengals can keep the ones they want and upgrade at running back, wide receiver and guard.
