- Chiefs’ Take: Dontari Poe will absolutely be looking at this mark for his own contract. And it will be very tough for the Chiefs to match that under even the best of circumstances.

Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks tried out NBA star Nate Robinson, but it did not go well. Coach Pete Carroll stated that it is “all but impossible” for Robinson to make the switch to football.
