Darrelle Revis wants to play in 2018.

Including the playoffs, Revis played six games with the Chiefs after joining in late November, and even he admits his level of play was not up to his old standards. "I wasn't great or my best ever," Revis said. "But at the same time, for what I came in here and was asked to do, for the most part I'm happy with it." The Chiefs are not going to pay the $8.8 million roster bonus which Revis is owed in mid-March, but it is possible they look to bring him back on a renegotiated deal. If they cut him loose, Revis at least showed enough in Kansas City to get a look in free agency.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects the Browns to have interest in acquiring Alex Smith this offseason.

It makes all the sense in the world from a dot-connecting standpoint. The Chiefs are fully expected to move on from Smith, even with him coming off his best pro season. Patrick Mahomes offers more upside, and the Chiefs believe Smith has taken them as far as he can already. In Cleveland is GM John Dorsey, who was the Chiefs' GM when they acquired Smith from the 49ers. Cleveland has a ton of cap space and can splurge at quarterback, where Smith carries a $20.9 million cap hit for 2018. The Browns need to add a veteran and high-end rookie at the position.

Chiefs promoted RBs coach Eric Bieniemy to offensive coordinator.

Bieniemy has spent 10 years as an NFL running backs coach. The past five have been with Reid in Kansas City. Reid handed off play-calling duties to Matt Nagy midway through the 2017 season, but we would suspect he has the play sheet for Week 1 2018. If the Chiefs' offense changes, it could have more to do with the quarterback position than coordinator.

Chiefs signed TE Jace Amaro to a reserve/future contract.

The No. 49 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Amaro has made just three regular season appearances since his rookie season. He turns 26 in June.
Jan 9 - 5:03 PM

Chiefs DL Chris Jones suffered a torn MCL in the Wild Card loss to the Titans.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jones will undergo surgery and should be recovered in 8-10 weeks. That timeline should have him ready for the offseason program. The 2016 second-rounder was outstanding as a rookie, but he was even better this season, recording 6.5 sacks while standing up well against the run. He looks like a star in the making.
Jan 8 - 10:40 AM

Demetrius Harris caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Harris had to take over No. 1 tight end duties in the second half after Travis Kelce suffered a second-quarter concussion. Things didn't go well, as Harris had a drop and took a bad holding penalty. Harris is signed through 2018.
Jan 6 - 8:33 PM

Demarcus Robinson caught all four of his targets for 57 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Robinson literally did all of his damage on the final drive of the second half after Travis Kelce suffered a concussion. He scored a touchdown to put the Chiefs up 21-3 with three seconds left in the half. The second-year receiver caught the first 21 balls of his career for 212 yards this season. With Albert Wilson headed for free agency, Robinson could play a prominent 2018 role.
Jan 6 - 8:30 PM

Albert Wilson caught 2-of-4 targets for 26 yards in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Wilson set career highs across the board this season with a 42-554-3 line as the default No. 2 receiver after the offseason release of Jeremy Maclin. Wilson had a huge 10-147 day in Week 17 and will now head into free agency.
Jan 6 - 8:26 PM

Tyreek Hill caught 7-of-11 targets for 87 yards in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Hill had a mixed first half, dropping two passes but also hanging a 4-84 line up into the locker room. He dropped another pass after the break and didn't do anything on his three second-half grabs. It was tough sledding for the Chiefs without Travis Kelce (concussion) in the second half. Hill still enjoyed a breakout sophomore season, hanging a 75-1,183-7 line in his first year as a full-time receiver. With big-armed Patrick Mahomes expected to take over at quarterback in 2018, Hill's ceiling still hasn't been hit. He has massive WR1 upside.
Jan 6 - 8:20 PM

Charcandrick West caught two passes for one yard in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

He didn't register a carry. West saw a career-low 45 touches in 13 games this season, amassing 222 yards and four touchdowns. He was phased out of the offense the final month-plus of the season after OC Matt Nagy took over play-calling duties. The Chiefs leaned more on Kareem Hunt as a workhorse, while Akeem Hunt was also involved. West is signed for $1.45 million in 2018.
Jan 6 - 8:16 PM

Kareem Hunt rushed 11 times for 42 yards and one touchdown in the Chiefs' Wild Card loss to the Titans on Saturday.

He "added" three catches for five yards. Hunt got the scoring started with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the first quarter and looked to be on his way to a big afternoon. But the regular season's rushing leader managed just 17 yards after halftime with K.C. scoring zero points after the break. Hunt finished the season on a high note with six touchdowns over his final five games and should remain a bell cow next season with either Alex Smith or Patrick Mahomes at quarterback. Hunt should be a first-round fantasy pick in next summer's drafts.
Jan 6 - 8:09 PM

Alex Smith completed 24-of-33 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' 22-21, Wild Card loss to the Titans on Saturday.

Smith was as perfect as one can get in the first half, going 19-of-23 for 231 yards and two scores. Two of the incompletions were Tyreek Hill drops. But the game changed after Travis Kelce suffered a late-half concussion. Still, the Chiefs led 21-3 at the half, but the offense wasn't able to do a single thing in the second half, as Smith threw for just 33 yards in the final 30 minutes. It may have been the final game of Smith's Chiefs career. Unfortunately for him, this will stick with people, even after Smith had the best season of his career. He set new career bests with 4,042 yards and 26 touchdown passes. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Chiefs are open to trading Smith this offseason, and that seems inevitable after the upset Wild Card loss. It'll be Patrick Mahomes' offense in 2018 when/if Smith is sent away, likely via trade.
Jan 6 - 7:53 PM

Travis Kelce exited the Wild Card playoff game against the Titans with a concussion and will not return.

Kelce took a big hit to the head from Johnathan Cyprien late in the second quarter and could even stand up and walk on his own after the brain injury. Eventually, Kelce was able to gather himself and jog to the sideline before immediately being sent to the locker room. Kelce caught all four of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown before leaving.
Jan 6 - 6:25 PM

Albert Wilson (hamstring) is active for Saturday's Wild Card Game against the Titans.

Wilson was never in danger of sitting despite being listed questionable. He'll start opposite Tyreek Hill and has a plus matchup coming off last week's 147-yard game. Kansas City's inactives are QB Tyler Bray, DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches, DL Stefan Charles, LB Ramik Wilson, RB C.J. Spiller, S Leon McQuay, and OL Parker Ehinger.
Jan 6 - 3:20 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chiefs are open to trading Alex Smith in the offseason.

The dots have connected to this ever since the Chiefs traded up for Patrick Mahomes in the first round of last April's draft. Smith has just one year left on his deal through 2018 with a $20.6 million cap hit, and the cap-strapped Chiefs can clear $17 million of that by shedding Smith. However, Smith is coming off arguably his best season as a pro and is still theoretically in the prime of his career at 33 years old. He could be the best quarterback on the market if Kirk Cousins sticks in D.C. RapSheet mentions the Browns, Cardinals, Broncos, Jets, Jaguars, and Bills as potential suitors for Smith, who could fetch the Chiefs multiple draft picks.
