Andy Reid talks Chiefs, Michael Vick, more
By Bill Williamson
New Kansas City coach Andy Reid dished on his new gig on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning.”
In it, among other topics, Reid called Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick “a good kid.” That innocent comment has some people thinking Reid will bring Vick to Kansas City. I think Vick will be on Reid's list, but he won’t be too high. Remember, Reid is the one who replaced a struggling Vick this season.
Meanwhile, there continue to be reports Doug Pederson is about to be hired as Reid’s offensive coordinator. He was Reid’s quarterbacks coach with the Eagles. Former Eagles offensive coordinator Brad Childress also may join Reid’s staff.

The left tackle crop in this year’s draft took a hit when Michigan’s Taylor Lewan decided to stay in school. The Chargers, who have the No. 11 pick in the draft, badly need a left tackle. So, this news lessens their options a bit.
