This is an Espn Insider Rumor..... idk what the rumor is but thought someone might want to read it......
On Friday, it was widely reported that Andy Reid was taking over as the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, and he was introduced in that position at a press conference on Monday afternoon. The next steps for Reid include assembling his coaching staff, and then evaluating his roster and finding areas where improvements can be made, either through free agency or the draft. The GM that is hired will obviously play a role in this as well.
Speaking to media at the presser, Reid confessed that sorting out the QB position will be a pivotal undertaking this offseason. "I have looked at the roster and there are some good football players on this football team," Reid declared, via Pro Football Talk. "The quarterback position, I'm going to dig in and look at that and we'll build that thing. We'll see how that whole thing builds out. I need to spend some time working at it, though. I've got to find that next Len Dawson, doggone it. It might be right here, it might not."
The coach also addressed the idea of having the first pick in this offseason's draft, though he admitted that there is pressure to avoid picking a bust. "We've been blessed with the No. 1 pick in the draft," he noted. "You want to make sure you do the right thing and pick the right guy for that. Not necessarily a quarterback -- it doesn't have to be a quarterback. It has to be the right thing. You don't want to force anything at that point. People that do that get themselves in trouble."
As we know, the QBs that will hit free agency this offseason don't inspire much hope, but old Reid favorite Michael Vick may be released by the Eagles, and there's a possibility that Alex Smith or Matt Flynn could be had via trade. And even if the Chiefs don't use that No. 1 overall pick on a QB, they'll have the top pick in each successive round, so taking a passer later on could be an option if the right prospect is available.
