According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs are two teams that could have interest in the signal caller. New Cleveland offensive coordinator Norv Turner worked with Smith in San Francisco in 2006. Andy Reid is entering his first year as the Chiefs head coach, and he has previously expressed interest in Smith, according to the report.
Neither the Browns nor Chiefs have an established quarterback on their roster.
4. OLB Jaylon Smith could be the next: Derrick Johnson. Outside linebackers who can rush the passer are nice; those fluid enough to rush the passer, make plays in pursuit on running downs and drop into coverage when necessary are much, much nicer. Assuming the 6-3, 218-pound Smith can add 20 to 25 pounds without sacrificing his exceptional change-of-direction skills, speed, or fluidity, it’s not difficult to see him emerging — eventually — as an all-over-the-field playmaker in the mold of the current Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro and former Texas Butkus Award winner.
Chesser is the treasurer and one of the co-founders of Missouri Pit Bull Rescue (or MPR), a non-profit based in greater Kansas City. Rob and his wife, Veronique, launched MPR in 1999 in order to promote responsible pit-bull ownership, find loving homes for rescues, and teach locals about the breed.
They’re also Chiefs fans, and this is where things start to get, as they say on Facebook, complicated. Because the more the couple starts to do the math in their heads, the more uneasy they become.
Adam spent the last three seasons working for the Chiefs as a defensive assistant and assistant linebackers coach. He was initially hired to serve under head coach Todd Haley. Adam remained a member of the coaching staff following Haley’s firing when Crennel was promoted to head coach.
Prior to his time in Kansas City, Adam worked for four years in the same role for the New Orleans Saints under head coach Sean Payton.
