Mailbag: Nick Foles a Chiefs target?
By Bill Williamson
Weekend mail call:
Craig Gullett from Joplin, Mo. wants to know if Green Bay free-agent receiver Greg Jennings could replace Dwayne Bowe in Kansas City,
Bill Williamson: I think Jennings could be a possibility if Bowe isn’t brought back, yes. There are some good receivers out there, but Jennings would fit Andy Reid’s offense. New Kansas City general manager John Dorsey came from Green Bay, so there is a connection. So, yes, I’d put Jennings on the Chiefs’ list of possibilities.
Bret from La Mesa, Calif., wants to knowif I think the Chargers could take Alabama guard Chance Warmack with the No. 11 pick in the draft.
BW: I think Warmack will be on the Chargers’ short list if he is available. He is expected to be an instant-impact player. The Chargers’ top need is at left tackle. If left tackles such as Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and perhaps Lane Johnson of Oklahoma are gone, I think the Chargers could turn to Warmack.
Jon from Iowa wants to know if New Kansas City coach Andy Reid could pursue Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles.
BW: If the Eagles move away from Foles, I think Reid might be interested. He drafted Foles last season and he played him. If Reid really likes Foles and if Reid thinks Foles has a high ceiling, I can easily see him being a target in Kansas City. Why not? I don’t think he’d cost too much.
