Rumor: Bill Polian Could Be The Next Chiefs GM


Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli hasn’t even lost his job yet but that likely won’t stop rumors about his potential replacement from leaking out.

And we’ve got our first leak.

According to The National Football Post, former Colts Gm Bill Polian could be the frontrunner to land in KC:

"Look for former Colts executive Bill Polian to get back into the league after the season. The grapevine says the Chiefs are the frontrunners for his services, should they part ways with Scott Pioli. Polian got his NFL start in Kansas City as a pro scout in 1978, so it would be fitting if he ended his career there."

I’d take this report with a grain of salt, mostly because there is no one person reporting it. There is no byline on the story. The column is called “Friday Buzz” and comes with the tag “Intel, Obeservations and Whispers from The NFP Insider Network.” I’m not sure what that means.

Still, NFP has a good reputation so we can’t totally discount this either. If Polian is interested in getting back into football, KC would be a logical choice, especially if the team is going to have a top draft pick.

What do you think, Addicts? Do you want Bill Polian to be the new GM?
