"Earlier today, our friends at RaiderBeat.com reported that talks between the Raiders and tackle Khalif Barnes were back on, and that a deal could soon be done. And soon is now — Barnes is a Raider. According to John Clayton of ESPN.com, the Raiders have signed Barnes."

The Chiefs can't possibly miss in this slot. If the Lions go quarterback at the top, K.C. will have their pick between Curry, the draft's cleanest prospect, and one of the top two offensive tackles. If Detroit goes for Curry, the Chiefs still get the tackle they need in either Smith or Monroe. And if the Lions and Rams both go offensive tackle, Kansas City winds up with the defensive play-maker it lacks in Curry.

Prior to signing, McGlockton had been to four straight Pro Bowls as a Raider. But as soon as he came to Arrowhead Stadium, his production took a nosedive. McGlockton made only seven sacks in three years with the Chiefs and averaged 35.7 tackles per year.

The Chiefs now should have their quarterback of the future, assuming new coach Todd Haley's as good a quarterback tutor as he appeared in Arizona the past couple of years. Haley, who worked with Belichick and Charlie Weis with the Jets a decade ago, told me over the weekend what has him thrilled is that the New England offense and the Kansas City offense have the same verbiage and playcalls. "So we won't have to take the time a new quarterback would normally have to take to get up to speed in a new system,'' Haley said. "He knows this system. And I've watched so much of him from last year. I see a player who's learned under a Hall of Fame quarterback in Tom Brady, and who's so mature for someone with only a year's experience.''

Per ESPN.com, Marshall was busted for disorderly conduct in Atlanta on Sunday. He posted a $300 bond and was released. And as Commissioner Roger Goodell explained at his January 30 pre-Super Bowl press conference, the punitive aspect of the Personal Conduct Policy focuses on repeat offenders. Of which Marshall is one. Based on three arrests starting in March 2006, Goodell suspended Marshall for two games in 2008. On appeal to Goodell, the banishment was cut to a single game. So don’t be shocked if Marshall gets the Chris Henry treatment on this one, with an eight-game suspension.

"I felt the tide turning in the room last year for [Derrick] Thomas, and I thought he might make it after selectors heard the presentation for him. I think if voters believe he was even a satisfactory player against the run, he'll get in this time...Dent, like Thomas, is gaining momentum, and I think at least one pass-rusher other than Smith will make it this year. I think it'll probably come down to Thomas or Dent."

As for the Chiefs, well, blue-chip high school recruits trying to choose your college, time to check out Coastal Carolina University! Little-known second-year quarterback Tyler Thigpen from Division I-AA Coastal Carolina is just tremendous -- his arm, his running ability, his poise, everything. Thigpen is going to leave many first-round quarterbacks in his dust. He didn't look the slightest bit nervous when Kansas City went for it on fourth-and-1 on the Miami 8, throwing a nice touchdown pass. With the clock ticking down, Thigpen moved the Chiefs 95 yards in less than two minutes for a touchdown as the first half ended. When Kansas City went for it on fourth-and-1 from its own 26 with three minutes remaining, Thigpen had Mark Bradley open on an out-and-up, and if he hadn't slipped as he set to throw, Miami might not be preparing for a win-and-in game Sunday. Kansas City put up 492 yards of offense against an opponent that had 10 times the motivation. Nice work, Chiefs.

Talking to new Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, you get the impression he wants to keep coach Herman Edwards for the fourth and final season of his contract -- but won't stand in the way if a strong-willed general manager wants to make a coaching change. With King Carl Peterson out as president and general manager, Hunt plans to hire two people in his place: a general manager who will have full authority over the football side of the team and a club president to run the business side. The latter will be a vital hire in this economy because the Chiefs in 2010 open a rehabbed Arrowhead Stadium with 50 additional luxury suites and 7,000 new club seats. But for now, Hunt, son of the late Lamar Hunt, will look for a Scott Pioli or Charley Casserly to run his team and help determine the fate of Edwards. "I'm looking for a shrewd evaluator of football talent," Hunt told me. "He's got to be a strong leader, effective communicator, and preferably will come from a winning organization. I don't have a short list right now. I have a very broad list, but I expect to start interviewing soon after the [regular] season." Hunt said he was "very supportive of Herm, because I believe he's gone about the building of this team the right way. The new general manager will have input [about Edwards' future], and the decision whether to keep him will be mine, but I will listen to what the new GM has to say about it." I asked whether he would consider hiring a GM who would want full authority over all things football, including the hiring and firing of the head coach. Hunt paused for a moment, then said: "I'm going to be open-minded about that. It's possible that we'll give our GM that authority." I asked because I would think many of the top GM candidates, such as Pioli, would say, "Why would I leave where I am for a place that gives me control over the draft and the roster but not over the one man with the most control over whether the players I bring him succeed or fail?" Hunt will probably have to cede that authority. Edwards told me Sunday that he wanted to stay next year, and for the foreseeable future. "I wish we'd started the rebuilding project a year earlier," Edwards said. "I'd love to be the guy to lead this team for a long time. We're building a good, solid base of talent." We'll see. My gut tells me the Chiefs will have a new coach in 2009.

Yes, it's a beautiful thing how every sports town has its own rhythm, and for 20 years or so that Kansas City rhythm was Carl Peterson. People outside Kansas City may have known his name, may have seen him interviewed here or there. But in Kansas City, he really was Mr. Potter, the biggest man in town. People argued about him and complained about him and grudgingly appreciated him. They booed him and called talk shows to demand his firing and maybe on occasion would raise a glass to him for making the Chiefs matter again. It all ended quietly though, on a Monday afternoon, at a press gathering that Carl himself did not attend. By the time it ended, Peterson had few fans left, few people who remembered or cared about how it began, few who wanted to give him credit for anything. The feeling was celebration in Kansas City, which is a shame. There were a lot of good memories in those 20 years. That's how it goes, though. People sometimes forget good memories. People always remember the end.

"There’s a reason that an Edwards-coached team forced to play Colclough and Gilberry and Dacus and Walden and a bunch of other guys with first names you do not know went into San Diego and came within a two-point conversion of upsetting the Chargers. The reason is that Herm Edwards is a good football coach. Oh, he might not be a brilliant strategist who creates mathematical genius on a chalkboard. He might not be Garry Kasparov moving his knights and bishops around the board, causing the grandmaster on the other sideline to resign. He might not be a master of clock management, and yeah we saw that again at the end of the first half in San Diego when the Chiefs decided to run out the clock, go for the score, run out the clock and go for the score all in the span of about 83 seconds. It has been well documented what Herm Edwards cannot do. But here are things I think he can do: He can build a football team. He can keep that football team together. He can inspire players, and he can motivate them into buying in, and he can get them to play hard week after week. Those things, I think, are more important than someone who can design cool plays on napkins."

Bad news for devout Herm Haters: In losing 20-19 to San Diego on Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs played a near-flawless game and gave the strongest testimony to date Herm Edwards might deserve at least one more season to lead the Chiefs. Sorry. I absolutely loved Sunday’s game, especially the decisive decision to go for two points and the victory in the final minute rather than a game-tying extra point. And, to be totally honest, I loved the fact the two-point conversion failed.
