Chiefs coach Andy Reid makes minor moves to coaching staff
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have promoted Brad Childress to assistant head coach and announced that Matt Nagy will take over as the sole offensive coordinator in a minor shake-up of Andy Reid's staff.

Chiefs hire Greg Lewis as receivers coach
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have hired Greg Lewis as their new wide receivers coach.
Lewis spent last season in the same role for the Philadelphia Eagles, where he began his NFL career in 2003 as a free agent under coach Andy Reid — now his new boss in Kansas City. He played eight seasons with the Eagles (2003-08) and Vikings (2009-10), playing in all four of Philadelphia's NFC Championship games and catching a touchdown in the Super Bowl.
It appears that the Philadelphia Eagles will have a new wide receivers coach for the 2017 season. According to several media reports, the team has fired first-year wide receivers coach Greg Lewis.

Canton-bound Brett Favre ranks Vikings’ rally vs. 49ers as one of his top NFL thrills
Brett Favre had a 20-year career that took 46 Pro Football Hall of Fame selectors nine seconds to sign off on. And that seemed about eight seconds too long for the NFLs ultimate gunslinging ironman.
The journey that began quietly in Atlanta, flourished in Green Bay, detoured through the Big Apple and ended in Purple needed no embellishment from 46 media members who otherwise spent 8 hours, 49 minutes discussing the Class of 2016. Favres highlights, too many to count,...
