His salary could push him out now that he’s been put down on the second string. Noise has begun growing about the Titans parting ways with Levitre.

Chiefs' Knile Davis could hold key to running success

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There may be no more valuable player on the Kansas City Chiefs than Jamaal Charles, the game-breaking running back with the slick moves and world-class speed. His success this season could be closely tied to that of Knile Davis. The Chiefs have given Charles a remarkably light load in training camp and preseason games in an effort to keep him healthy, and that...

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback. If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...

Chiefs dealing with mounting number of nagging injuries

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs have not had that moment in training camp or preseason when everyone notices a player hobbling to the sideline or flat on the field, and there is a collective gasp.

QB Alex Smith says Chiefs’ offense will go deep early and often this season

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has been a game manager who hasn't looked deep to often since joining the team, but the addition of Jeremy Maclin and a new emphasis on offense to throw deeper routes, has the signal caller ready to let it fly.  "Absolutely. I think two things: For one, the deep ball for sure is something that gets a lot of attention," Smith said, via...

That is much longer than many, a fact made more remarkable by the fact that he has only thrown 75 passes (66 of them over the last two seasons in Kansas City). Apparently he has shown enough to be kept around, but no one has shown much interest in making him their No. 1 guy.However, with the way he has looked over...
