Hello, Kansas City Chiefs fans. Believe it or not, there is actually NFL news that takes place outside of Kansas City!  I know…weird. Mind blown.

But not to worry, the staff here at Arrowhead Addict has got your back! We’re bringing you a recap of the biggest stories from around the league each week. We’re even including a quick take for those stories that may have some kind of an impact on our beloved Chiefs.

Here is what the rest of the league is doing:

Atlanta Falcons:  The Falcons signed journeyman offensive tackle, Tyler Polumbus. The Falcons offensive line has had its share of problems the last couple of seasons. Polumbus is not a good starting option, but may still be in play to fill that role for the Falcons.

More from Kansas City Chiefs News

  • Chiefs’ take:  The Chiefs offensive line is no more settled than the Falcons, but it is probably safe to say our current options are better than Polumbus. He wasn’t a likely option for KC.

Baltimore Ravens:  Both Ed Reed and Jarrett Johnson decided to retire in the past week. The fact that both players wished to retire as members of the Ravens speaks highly of the organization and its relationships with players. The Ravens also added former Patriots cornerback, Kyle Arrington to their roster. The Ravens have been open about their desire to add talent in the secondary.

Chiefs’ take

:  The Chiefs have shown significant interest in addressing the secondary. Tyvon Branch, Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson are all quality investments. The Chiefs were also one of

several teams linked

to Darrelle Revis when he became a free agent. While there were no direct rumors linking the Chiefs to Kyle Arrington, it stands to reason that the Chiefs are likely still looking for more talent in the secondary.

Buffalo Bills:  The Bills signed former Jets fullback, John Connor. Connor garnered some fame during the Jets’ “Hard Knocks” season when coach Rex Ryan nicknamed him “The Terminator.”

Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals signed quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, who had been on the Chiefs roster until last week.

  • Chiefs’ take:  Pryor’s stint in Kansas City wasn’t long, but he was popular in the community due to his immediate impact as an off-the-field presence in local charity and community outreach programs.
