Top Chiefs stories

  • Chiefs general manager Brett Veach and coach Andy Reid both commented on defensive end Frank Clark’s future in Kansas City. Reid said he had a good talk with Clark at the end of the season, reiterating that the two are very close and that he would love for Clark to return. Veach said there will be conversations between the two sides and an attempt to work something out that makes sense for both parties. Veach also commented that freeing up some cap space will be important.
  • Veach was also asked about the status of left tackle Orlando Brown Jr., who is currently slated to hit free agency. Brown played on the franchise tag last season and Veach suggested that the tag could be used again. He also suggested that a long-term deal is still in play. Either way, Veach has until 3 p.m. CT on March 7 to use the tag, otherwise Brown will become a free agent.
  • The Chiefs promoted assistant quarterbacks coach and passing game analyst David Girardi to quarterbacks coach, replacing Matt Nagy who was promoted to offensive coordinator. Girardi has been with the Chiefs for five seasons, working his way up from offensive quality control coach. Many of Reid’s QBs coaches have gone on to become OCs, so that might be the eventual path for Girardi.
