Two of the leading candidates for the Chiefs general manager’s job will be involved in that game. And whichever candidate’s team loses could be available to talk with chairman Clark Hunt about the vacancy.
John Dorsey is the Packers’ director of football operations and has been part of Green Bay’s front office for 21 of the last 22 years.
Tom Gamble is in his eighth season in San Francisco and was promoted from director of pro personnel to director of player personnel last February after the 49ers reached the NFC championship game.
“There’s a family there with stability,” lawyer Jon Michael Franks said of 4-month-old Zoey’s current environment.
Stability is something the infant has lacked since her father, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, killed Kasandra and then shot himself Dec.1.
No one answered the door at Sophie Perkins’ tidy suburban home 20 minutes outside of Austin, but her Pinterest board provided reminders of the tragedy that left Zoey the subject of a brewing custody battle.
The Chiefs’ biggest area of need coincides with the most important position on the field. It’s the biggest reason why the Chiefs went 2-14 last season, and why Reid was hired to replace Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs were looking for a new general manager.
“The quarterback position, I’m going to dig in and look at that and we’ll build that thing,” Reid said. “We’ll see how that works out, but I need to spend some time to look at that.”
Reid may be zeroing in on hiring an offensive coordinator to work with the quarterback he settles on. Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress is in Kansas City on Wednesday, a league source told ESPN, and he could be hired as either offensive coordinator or as an adviser to Reid.
