Position Listing
Jimmy Staten
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Phillip Gaines
News
Gaines (knee) "will probably be the guy at the [other] corner spot [opposite Marcus Peters]" according to head coach Andy Reid, the the Kansas City Star reports.

When 2015 starter Sean Smith bolted for Oakland, the starting cornerback job opposite AP Defensive Rookie of the Year Marcus Peters went up for grabs. Though lost to an ACL tear last September, Gaines appears to be the frontrunner for the gig. He's been unable to participate in team drills during the majority of the Chiefs' offseason program, but has taken part in individual drills and should be ready for training camp. If his knee holds up through the end of the summer, the starting job should be his to lose.

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of season
KeiVarae Russell
News
The Chiefs selected Russell in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 74th overall.

Russell was talented enough to earn a starting role as a freshman at Notre Dame, and he showed strong athleticism at his pro day, running a 4.49 40 while jumping 38.5 inches in the vertical and 134 inches in the broad jump. Russell should be a starter in Kansas City within a year or two.

Rakeem Nunez-Roches
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Eric Murray
News
The Chiefs selected Murray in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 106th overall.

Murray isn't a well-known name, but this looks like a fine selection for the Chiefs. Murray was the top corner on a Minnesota defense that's quietly been good against the pass the last two years, and he performed well at the Combine, too. Murray (5-foot-11, 199 pounds) logged a 4.49-second 40, 39.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. With 31.75-inch arms, Murray should have the reach to press effectively.

Jonathan Massaquoi
News
Outside linebacker Jonathan Massaquoi will not participate in the Titans' first organized team activities, per ESPN.com.

Massaquoi, who was claimed off waivers from the Falcons earlier this year, is recovering from shoulder surgery. He had a bone spur removed from the area, but the procedure was categorized as a minor cleanup.

Massaquoi recorded 22 tackles in 15 games with Atlanta last season.

Kevin Hogan
News
Hogan, the Chiefs' 2016 fifth-round selection, is in the mix for the backup QB role as soon as this upcoming season, NFL.com reports.

Chase Daniel (Eagles) bolted for a pay increase this offseason, subsequently leaving the Chiefs with a void at backup quarterback. Alex Smith, who tossed for a career-high 3,486 yards in 2015, is undoubtedly locked-in as the starter, but his mobile tendencies do leave him more vulnerable than the average starting quarterback, which thus places more importance on the backup quarterback in Kansas City on average relative to the rest of the league. Evidently, Hogan, a fifth-round selection in this year's draft, is in competition for said job as soon as this upcoming season, and will battle for the title with Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray come training camp.

Cairo Santos
News
Santos finished the regular season off Sunday against the Raiders by knocking home two of his three field goal attempt, and added another three extra points.

Santos tied for fifth among kickers, converting 30 attempts on the season, but did so while just making 81.1 percent of his attempts, ranking 30th in that category. There's no talk that the Brazilian is in danger of losing his job, but it could be a bit of a concern for the club heading into next season. However, a strong showing in the playoffs could give him some job stability for 2016.

Mitch Mathews

Albert Wilson
News
Wilson spent a fair amount of time working in the slot during minicamp, the Kansas City Star reports. "That's been a new role for him," quarterback Alex Smith said. "That's a big plate there when you move inside, that's a lot on your shoulders - especially mentally - and he's handled it. Been good there, too."

Wilson's smaller frame (5-foot-9) certainly fits more the mold of a slot receiver, but a permanent shift inside could lead to less playing time in a Chiefs offense that likes to utilize heavier sets that many times include a fullback. If he can prove effective in that role, it's possible the Chiefs could utilize more three wide receiver sets, but Wilson would be at best a third or fourth option in the offense Jeremy Maclin and tight end Travis Kelce head and shoulders above the competition. Even if Wilson can carve out some playing time, it would likely require an injury above him in the depth chart for the third-year wideout to enter fantasy consideration.

Dadi Nicolas
No Updates
D.J. Alexander
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Tyreek Hill
No Updates
Akeem Davis
News
The Redskins lost two defensive backs to injuries, Monday. 

David Amerson is being evaluated after suffering a left-shoulder injury, and Akeem Davis is getting evaluated for an injury to his left thumb, per the Washington Post

Davis played in 13 games as a rookie last year. Amerson has played in 31 games over the last two seasons.

Kenny Cook
News
Cook had surgery Thursday to repair a torn quadriceps, Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Cook was waived and placed on the injured reserve due to the injury, but the Chiefs will retain their rights to the young receiver. The 24-year-old suffered the torn quadriceps in Tuesday's practice, and the injury really hurts his chances of making an NFL roster this season.

Injury
Quadriceps - IR.
Shannon Edwards
No Updates
Marcus Peters
News
Peters was named Defensive Rookie of the Year at Saturday's NFL Awards Ceremony, Connor Orr of NFL.com reports.

Peters was the eighth defensive player and third cornerback selected in the 2015 draft, but he outperformed his peers in a big way by collecting 45 of a possible 50 votes for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award. He was tied with Cincinnati's Reggie Nelson for the league lead in interceptions with eight, and Peters returned two of those picks for touchdowns. Peters looks to be one of the steals of last year's draft and figures to be a key member of Kansas City's stout defense for years to come.

Ron Parker
News
Parker finished the 2015 campaign with 78 tackles (67 solo), five sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble.

Parker split 2014 between cornerback and safety, but the emergence of first-round draft pick Marcus Peters across from Sean Smith allowed him to play alongside Eric Berry this season. He took advantage of the opportunity, posting another solid season for the Chiefs in a secondary that could be scary for years to come, with Parker finishing up his first campaign of a five-year extension he signed in March of last year.

Ross Travis
No Updates
De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas said he is still trying to recover from a concussion, the Kansas City Star reports.

The Chiefs placed Thomas on the non-football illness list before Week 17, with head coach Andy Reid saying that the slot receiver's absence was not related to his concussion. Thomas apparently disagrees, hinting at significant discord between the player and organization. He still has two years remaining on his rookie contract, but it's no longer clear that Thomas will be back with the Chiefs in 2016.

Stevie Brown
News
Brown's agent announced Friday that the 28-year-old safety has signed with the Chiefs, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Brown was most recently with the Giants last preseason before being among the team's final round of cuts before Week One. Both Brown and Jimmy Wilson both signed with the Chiefs on Friday, which adds depth to a secondary that just lost Husain Abdullah to retirement. The two safeties could find themselves battling for the same backup strong safety spot once training camp gets underway.

Jordan Devey
News
The 49ers traded tight end Asante Cleveland to the Patriots on Tuesday in exchange for offensive lineman Jordan Devey.

Cleveland appeared in six games as a rookie in 2014. He did not record a catch.

Devey, who was an undrafted free agent in 2013, appeared in seven games last season for New England. He made four starts.

Daniel Munyer
No Updates
Dezman Moses
News
Linebacker Dezman Moses has signed with the Chiefs, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Moses missed the 2014 season after playing for the Chiefs in 2013. He has played in 29 games, recording 32 total tackles, two passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Tyler Bray
News
Bray (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Bray has been sidelined for the beginning of the 2015 season due to an ACL injury suffered while playing basketball. There's no indication of when he may return, but it's also unlikely he'll have a roster spot even when healthy.

Tyrell Adams
No Updates
Zach Fulton
News
The Chiefs have ruled quarterback Alex Smith (spleen) and cornerback Phillip Gaines (illness) out for Sunday's Week 17 divisional showdown against the Chargers.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder), running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) and guard Zach Fulton (foot, toe) were labeled questionable. Meanwhile, tight end Anthony Fasano (knee), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), linebacker/defensive end Josh Martin (hand) and inside linebacker Joe Mays (knee) were deemed probable.

Jamaal Charles
News
Charles (knee) will take part in individual drills at Tuesday's minicamp practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Charles has been present at offseason practices for rehab and off-field work for the past few weeks, but he's yet to make an on-field appearance alongside his teammates. Tuesday thus marks a significant step in his recovery from the torn ACL suffered in Week 5 last year, with all reports to date suggesting that Charles is on/ahead of schedule. There is some thought that Charles, even if he returns to full health, might lose touches to Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, who formed an effective duo in the superstar's absence last season. Prior to the injury, Charles was handling a huge workload while playing the vast majority of offensive snaps; he had 71 carries, 21 receptions, 541 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns in just 4.5 games.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of season
Trey Millard
News
The 49ers waived 10 players on Monday. They were K Corey Acosta, LB Steve Beauharnais, CB Mylan Hicks, T Sean Hooey, WR Mario Hull, WR Chuck Jacobs, WR Nigel King, LB Shawn Lemon, FB Trey Millard and DL Lawrence Okoye.

Additionally, the 49ers placed G/C Daniel Kilgore on the PUP list to start the season and WR DeAndre Smelter on the NFI list. The team also placed WR Dres Anderson and LB Desmond Bishop on injured reserve.

Charcandrick West
News
West and fellow running back Spencer Ware both signed contract extensions with the Chiefs on Thursday.

West and Ware, with their contrasting styles, formed an effective duo at running back after Jamaal Charles suffered a torn ACL in Week 5. The Chiefs may try to ease their star's workload in the coming seasons, but there's still no question that Charles -- who seems to be on track for Week 1 -- will dominate the touches whenever he's healthy. The Kansas City backfield should be excellent for the next few seasons, as all three players are signed through at least 2017.

D.J. White
News
White left practice on Friday with a hamstring strain, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

The severity of the injury is still unknown but it shouldn't hinder the sixth round pick from being ready in time for the regular season.

Shakiel Randolph

Alameda Ta'amu
News
The Cardinals announced they re-signed nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu to a one-year deal. Ta'amu, 24, was limited to seven games last season as he struggled in his recovery from a torn ACL suffered in the 2013 season finale.
Aaron Murray
News
The following players for the Chiefs have been deemed inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers: quarterback Aaron Murray, wide receiver Donnie Avery, offensive linemen Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Nick Williams, cornerback Marcus Cooper and running back Charcandrick West.

Jaye Howard
News
Howard signed a two-year deal with the Chiefs worth $12 million, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

Howard, 28, had played in all 32 games for the Chiefs over the past two seasons and logged 24 starts, 62 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Look for him to remain a constant presence on the Kansas City defensive line.

Reid Fragel
News
The Buccaneers claimed offensive tackle Reid Fragel off waivers Monday, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Fragel was claimed off waivers from the Falcons.
Dee Ford
News
Ford (knee) left each of the final two days of minicamp because of tendinitis in his knee, The Kansas City Star reports.

Ford was reported to have left minicamp with a "sore knee", spelling concern over potential structural damage. However, Ford has reportedly avoided any such catastrophe, leaving head coach Andy Reid to say that his 2014 first round pick will be fine for training camp.

Frank Zombo
News
Several Chiefs who were on the injury report are active for the game at San Francisco. They include linebackers Tamba Hali (knee) and Frank Zombo (hamstring), cornerbacks Sean Smith (groin) and Marcus Cooper (knee), and running back De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring).
Mitch Morse
News
Chiefs rookie guard Mitch Morse is getting his feet wet during the team's minicamp this week, per ESPN.com.

Morse, a second-round pick by the Chiefs this year, has been getting reps with the first-team offensive line during minicamp.

Andy Mulumba
News
Packers linebacker Andy Mulumba confirmed he tore his ACL and will be out for the rest of the season, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Chris Jones
No Updates
Mike Williams
News
Williams continues to battle a strained hamstring but may take part in mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Williams has been out of the league for over a year after a promising 2012 campaign with the Buccaneers in which he caught 63 passes. While his hamstring injury doesn't appear to be critical, it's something to keep an eye on as training camp gets underway.

Chris Conley
News
Conley has spent the offseason with veteran teammate Jeremy Maclin working on cutting and his footwork, the Kansas City Star reports. "For me, being a bigger guy - a guy who typically runs 100 miles an hour - it's hard for me to stop on a dime and make sharper cuts," Conley said. "It was really working on that, fine-tuning those cuts to where they were effective at getting someone moved off their spot."

Conley possesses the physical tools (6-foot-2, 205 pounds with a 4.35 40 time) that coaches dream of, but was considered raw and in need of development coming out of Georgia last season. That proved to be the case, but it appears he's putting in the offseason work to fight for the No. 2 wideout spot opposite Maclin. With Albert Wilson reportedly playing inside in a slot role during camp, the job could be Conley's to lose at this point, but he will have to fend off the likes of veteran Rod Streater and rookies Demarcus Robinson and Tyreek Hill (among others) to ensure consistent playing time on Sundays this fall.

Dontari Poe
News
Poe (ankle) is active Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Good news for the Chiefs as they try to slow down Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers rushing attack. If Poe needs a little more rest than usual during the game, Jaye Howard would likely rotate in at nose tackle.

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris caught seven passes for 74 yards and a touchdown in the 2015 regular season.

Harris didnt' see much action this season despite being the second tight end behind Travis Kelce. He did finally collect his first career touchdown in Week 17 against the Raiders, and the Chiefs thought enough of him to extend his contract three more seasons. Harris seems likely to serve in a similar role next season, limiting his fantasy value behind star tight end Travis Kelce.

Justin March-Lillard
News
The Chiefs placed linebacker Justin March (knee) on injured reserve and quarterback Tyler Bray on the non-football injury list Tuesday.
Nick Williams
News
The Falcons re-signed fullback Patrick DiMarco and defensive end Cliff Matthews, the team announced on Tuesday. 

DiMarco was an exclusive-rights free agent, and Matthews was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March. 

DiMarco had 17 catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in two seasons with the Falcons. Matthews has appeared in 32 games, mainly on special teams, in four years with the team. 

The Falcons also brought in WR Nick Williams, a former Redskin. 

Daniel Sorensen
News
The Chiefs declared wideout Donnie Avery (groin), quarterback Aaron Murray, safety Daniel Sorensen, cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring), center Eric Kush, offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and linebacker Josh Martin (hamstring, knee) inactive for Sunday's game at Buffalo.
Brian Parker
News
Parker could see an extended run Sunday against the Broncos.

Parker saw his first game action with the Chiefs two weeks ago against the Lions, making key blocks on a play that led to a 10-yard touchdown run for De'Anthony Thomas. However, he didn't make have any grabs in the contest, and probably won't do enough even in his expanded role to be worth consideration in fantasy leagues.

Knile Davis
News
The Chiefs "haven't been shy" about getting Davis first-team reps this offseason, the The Kansas City Star reports.

Davis seemingly fell from grace early on in the 2015 campaign. He had largely served as Jamaal Charles' backup since being drafted in the third round by the Chiefs in 2014, and was expected to handle the majority of the work out of the backfield for Kansas City when Charles went down with a knee injury in October. However, he was ultimately passed up by both Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware on the depth chart and relegated to a role on special teams returning kicks. Both West and Ware were signed to contract extensions this offseason, while Davis did not (with just one year left on his deal). Seemingly, Davis will enter training camp firmly behind each of Charles, West and Ware.

Demarcus Robinson
No Updates
Mitchell Schwartz
News
One of the reasons Johnny Manziel was such a spectacular player in college was because he was able to extend a play and throw to a big receiver down the field. Landing with the Browns is a total win for Johnny Football because he'll have Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, Greg Little and Nate Burleson as down-field targets along with Andrew Hawkins as a quick, short-area weapon. Ben Tate rumbling in the backfield doesn't hurt either.

Another impressive factor is the Browns O-line, which has two studs in left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If the line can improve from last season (we're looking at you, Mitchell Schwartz), then Manziel will have time to make good throws.

Of all the places he could have gone in the draft, Cleveland's the best fit. Not only should he inject life into the franchise but he should end up starting in Week 1 against the Steelers. Expect Manziel to get taken late in every single seasonal draft as a combo backup Fantasy QB/sleeper who could get some serious trade value. He'll get picked in the middle rounds in dynasty/keeper leagues and should be considered a Top 5 choice in rookie-only drafts.
Da'Ron Brown
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Eric Berry
News
Berry and the Chiefs are unlikely to reach agreement on an extension prior to Fridays deadline for franchise-tagged players, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the two sides remain far apart in negotiations, but it's still possible a deal could happen Friday. If not, Berry will play out 2016 under his $10.806 million franchise-tag salary, and then be able to hit free agency next offseason. He played all 16 games last year, recording 61 tackles (55 solo), two interceptions and 10 passes defended.

Darrin Reaves
News
The Chiefs parted ways with one running back and signed another Sunday. The team announced it waived running back LaVance Taylor, while signing running back Darrin Reaves.
Jeremy Maclin
News
Maclin was removed from Thursday's practice due to a minor ankle injury, Kansas City Star reports. "He just tweaked his ankle a little bit," head coach Andy Reid said. "He's OK. No problem."

After kicking off OTAs on Tuesday, the Chiefs were unable to emerge from the week without an ailment afflicting one of their offensive mainstays. For what it's worth, Maclin was able to walk off the field without assistance, so Reid's lack of concern is likely warranted. Nevertheless, Maclin did suffer a high right-ankle sprain in January's wild-card win against the Texans, yet still played in the divisional round against the Patriots, so his progress through the current issue will be of interest as the offseason program continues.

Jamell Fleming
News
Fleming has re-signed with the Chiefs, The Kansas City Star reports.

While most of his contributions came on special teams in 2015, Fleming did also log 157 defensive snaps. He finished the campaign with 21 tackles (19 solo) and a fumble recovery, hardly enough for him to be considered in IDP leagues. There's nothing to suggest his role will change in 2016, but the departure of Sean Smith in free agency will lead to a shift in the defensive backfield.

Marcus Cooper
News
The Chiefs listed quarterback Alex Smith as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chargers.

Smith is suffering from a lacerated spleen which is expected to keep him out for six weeks.

Other inactives included Donnie Avery, Phillip Gaines, Marcus Cooper, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Nick Williams.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) and running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.

Frankie Hammond
News
Hammond was promoted to the 53-man roster Saturday.

Hammond has been on the Chiefs' practice squad, but with De'Anthony Thomas out Sunday against Buffalo, he'll join the active roster to serve as the fifth receiver. The Florida product saw time in all 16 games for Kansas City last season, catching four passes on 12 targets for 45 yards.

James O'Shaughnessy
News
O'Shaughnessy (foot) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

O'Shaughnessy, a fifth-round rookie, had six catches for 87 yards in seven games. Now that he's done for the season, Demetrius Harris will serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce.

Ramik Wilson
News
Chiefs rookie linebacker Ramik Wilson seemed to make an early impression during rookie minicamp, especially on pass defense. Wilson had an interception during a live session Sunday and came back with two more interceptions Monday, according to the team's official website.

"He's got strong hands and he's got a knack for making plays here,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of Wilson. “He's done a nice job, a very nice job."

While Wilson performed well in rookie minicamp, he is still eager to improve.

"I've made a couple good plays here and there, but I had a couple in error,” he said. “It's never going to be perfect, but I just have to correct the little things and once that's taken care of, I can take my game to another level."

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
News
The Chiefs listed quarterback Alex Smith as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chargers.

Smith is suffering from a lacerated spleen which is expected to keep him out for six weeks.

Other inactives included Donnie Avery, Phillip Gaines, Marcus Cooper, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Nick Williams.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) and running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.

Rod Streater
News
Streater signed with Kansas City on Saturday, Kansas City Star writer Terez Paylor reports.

Streater once showed a fair amount of promise, most notably logging a quality 2013 season where he caught 60 passes for 888 yards and four touchdowns on 99 targets, but a foot injury tanked his 2014 and he was a healthy scratch for nearly all of 2015. In a weak Alex Smith-led passing game that already features Jeremy Maclin, Jamaal Charles, Travis Kelce, Albert Wilson and Chris Conley, Streater isn't likely to produce with the Chiefs.

Steven Nelson
News
Chiefs rookie defensive backs Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson will be absent from team activities until the middle of June, according to ESPN.

The duo will be absent because NFL rules state a rookie is prohibited from practicing with his NFL team, except for minicamps, until his college class graduates -- regardless if the player is still enrolled in class.

Peters attended Washington, while Nelson went to Oregon State. Those schools don’t finish for their current academic session until the Chiefs have completed the last of their 10 regular offseason practices June 12.

Peters and Nelson are set to rejoin the Chiefs for the start of a three-day, full-squad minicamp June 16.

"You wish they were here just for the reps," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "But can it be done when they're not here? It can be done. You’ve got to do some different things. You've got to communicate with them, obviously, as a coach and go through whatever you can go through with them and talk to them, make sure they stay up on that. That’s what we'll do."

Seantavius Jones
News
The Saints reached a contract agreement with running back Tim Hightower on Monday, reports NOLA.com.

To make room for Hightower, the team parted ways with wide receiver Seantavius Jones. The team also waived fullback Toben Opurum and added OL Mike McGlynn.

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce signed a five-year, $46 million extension with the Chiefs on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

The Chiefs made Kelce the second-highest paid tight end in the league on Friday, with $20.5 million of the extension guaranteed. The deal looks him up through 2021. Kelce was the Chiefs' second-leading receiver in 2015 with 72 receptions for 875 yards and five touchdowns.

Josh Mauga
News
Mauga finished the 2015 regular season with 58 tackles (46 solo), one sack and two interceptions.

Playing alongside Derrick Johnson, Mauga made a slight impact of his own on the inside, thous he was no where near his counterpart's 116 tackles. It's possible the Chiefs will look to add some depth on the inside prior to the 2016 campaign, but Mauga is currently in line to retain the starting role.

Deveron Carr
News
The Colts waived/injured cornerback Deveron Carr on Monday. If he clears waivers, then he will revert to season-ending injured reserve.

Carr was signed by the Colts on March 23. He spent time with the Bucs in each of the last two seasons.

Allen Bailey
News
Bailey (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Bailey was able to practice fully all week, so it appears as if the defensive end could make his first return to the field since Week 8. Bailey will likely take over for the injured Mike DeVito, who was ruled out Friday after missing practice all week due to multiple injuries.

Spencer Ware
News
Ware and and fellow running back Charcandrick West both signed contract extensions with the Chiefs on Thursday.

With Jamaal Charles suffering a torn ACL in Week 5, Ware served as the power half of KC's running back duo for much of 2015. Charles seems to be ahead of schedule and should be ready by Week 1, but if not, the Chiefs backfield will be in good hands with Ware and Charcandrick West. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Ware's extension includes a $1 million signing bonus.

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is active for the game at Arizona after being listed as probable.

Other probables suiting up are wideout Donnie Avery (groin), punter Dustin Colquitt (calf), tight end Anthony Fasano (knee), linebacker Dee Ford (quadriceps), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), linebacker James-Michael Johnson (knee), linebacker Josh Mauga (back), guard Mike McGlynn (quadriceps), cornerback Chris Owens (knee) and cornerback Sean Smith (groin).

Tamba Hali
News
The Chiefs and Hali have reached an agreement on a three-year contract, ESPN.com reports.

The deal should enable the outside linebacker to finish his career with the Chiefs, on the heels of a 2015 campaign in which the 32-year-old recorded 48 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 15 games, en route to earning a Pro Bowl nod.

Jah Reid
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Kashif Moore
News
The Steelers released running backs Jordan Hall and Miguel Maysonet, receivers C.J. Goodwin and Kashif Moore, tight end Eric Waters, safety Jordan Dangerfield, cornerbacks Devin Smith and Lew Toler, and linebacker Vic So’oto. Pittsburgh is down to 81 players and must cut six more by 4 p.m. ET.

David King
News
The Seahawks have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl: B.J. Daniels, Marcus Burley, Patrick Lewis, Keavon Milton, David King, Garry Gilliam and Kevin Norwood, the team announced.

Gilliam caught a fake field goal touchdown during the NFC Championship Game for Seattle.

The game is currently pick'em between Seattle and New England.

Alex Smith
News
Smith completed 29 of 50 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-20 Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. He also gained 44 yards on nine rushes.

The veteran was productive overall but could only manage 4.9 yards per completion on the afternoon, a poor recipe for trying to topple the Patriots in their home stadium in the playoffs. Smith did have No.1 receiver Jeremy Maclin at his disposal after the receiver was questionable all week with knee and ankle injuries, but only targeted him three times on the afternoon. He did manage completions to an astounding 10 different players, and did not turn the ball over. Despite the disappointing conclusion, the 11-year veteran did enjoy a successful 2015 campaign, throwing for a career-high 3,486 yards and tossing 20 touchdown passes.

Anthony Sherman
News
Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman saw just ten offensive snaps in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Sherman saw a dramatic drop in snaps from 25 in Week 1 to 10 in Week 2. Given the lack of production out of the fullback spot, it shouldn't have too much impact on his fantasy value, but it could be an indicator that the Chiefs plan to move in a different direction offensively.

Justin Houston
News
Houston (knee) won't be ready for the start of next month's training camp, ESPN.com reports.

The Chiefs still do not have a concrete timetable outlined for Houston, who underwent ACL surgery in February, though GM John Dorsey maintains that the linebacker will play for the team at some point this coming season. With that in mind, Dorsey noted of Houston, "I don't know how much he's going to do in camp. But, listen, he's where he needs to be right now and he's a hard worker. He's bound and determined to get back. We'll just see how it works out. There is no timetable. It's just when he's right, he's right and we'll roll." Houston, who racked up 22 sacks in 2014, is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 30 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 11 games.

Knee - Questionable for start of season
Drew Nowak
News
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Eric Fisher
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Derrick Johnson
News
Johnson inked a three-year, $21 million contract to remain with the Chiefs on Wednesday, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Re-signing Johnson was likely one of the Chiefs' top priorities heading into free agency, as Kansas City lacks depth at inside linebacker, and will benefit from the consistent production Johnson brings to the table. The former first-round pick finished the 2015 regular season with 116 tackles (95 solo), four sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles, making him a valuable commodity in IDP leagues.
