Brock has mostly served as a practice squad member, having stints with the Jets (2009), Steelers (2009), Bears (2009-10), Cowboys (2010), Raiders (2010-11) and Bills (2011-12). In 2011, he played two games, recording two receptions for 27 yards.
Dixon played the past three seasons with the Jets, recording 21 tackles, 2 1/2 sacks and a forced fumble. He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Cowboys in 2008.
It is very difficult to know if the Chiefs current stable of receivers is good enough to take the Chiefs all the way. They’ve never had a quarterback who could deliver the ball. Most would say that Bowe, Baldwin, Breaston, and McCluster should be good enough. There is plenty of natural talent in those four players. However, Bowe may be done in Kansas City, and that would mean someone has to step in.
This year’s wide receiver free agents is one of the richest crops in years. Bowe of course is the top 2 or 3 on the list, but let’s look at the others.
With the first pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs do not take South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The NFL has a rule, agreed to by the NFL Players Association and tested in court. It stipulates that a player must be at least three years removed from high school before he’s eligible for the draft.
Clowney is two years removed from Rock Hill’s South Pointe High. He turns 20 on Valentine’s Day.
The Chiefs might not select Clowney even if he were eligible. But he’d be a contender.
“I shouldn’t have to,” Albert tweeted after noting it was “bout time” some different information came out. “Straight disrespectful.”
The Chiefs have the No. 1 overall pick in April’s NFL Draft and could select Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel. That doesn’t mean they won’t re-sign Albert, who could also slide to guard.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs are working on their defensive line. They brought in former New York Giants tackle/end Chris Canty, who told USA TODAY Sports via text the team “rolled out the red carpet” for him. Canty did not sign a deal and is headed home to mull over his visits with the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. No other visits are scheduled yet.
