Chiefs confident they'll reach deal with Justin Houston
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt told the Kansas City Star he's confident the team will sign standout outside linebacker Justin Houston to a long-term deal. The Chiefs put a $13.1 million nonexclusive franchise tag on Houston, which he has yet to sign.

“He knows, and his agent knows, how much we want him back,” Hunt said. “We just all have to be patient, and eventually, we’re going to get him signed to a long-term deal.”

Houston has 48.5 sacks in his four-year career. 

“I’ve been very consistent in saying that we not only value Justin as a football player, that we not only value Justin as a person and leader, and we want him to be a Chief for life,” Hunt said.

Cardinals' Bruce Arians: Paul Fanaika will be 'good fit' for Chiefs
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes offensive guard Paul Fanaika will do well for the Chiefs, the team he signed with early in free agency, according to the Kansas City Star

Fanaika signed a three-year, $8.1 million deal. Arians said the Cardinals and Fanaika both needed a fresh start but that the offensive guard should do well with his new team. 

“He’s had some down games in some big games (for us),” Arians said, “but sometimes we’ll overlook (that) and say, ‘Wow, he’s going to make that much money? God bless you. Go ahead.’ But I think he’ll be a good fit in that offense.”

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Chiefs safety Eric Berry is staying positive and doing well in his treatment to battle Hodgkin lymphoma, according to the Kansas City Star.

“He’s doing well in that treatment process, but that’s a tough process to go through,” said Clark Hunt, who visited Berry in Atlanta in January and gets regular updates on his status.

Head coach Andy Reid also reiterated that Berry is progressing well.

“He’s doing well,” said Reid, who said he last spoke to Berry a week before he arrived for the meetings. “(He’s) positive and upbeat.”

Berry, 26, has 289 total tackles, 5.5 sacks, eight interceptions and 31 passes defensed in five seasons with the Chiefs.

Chiefs GM getting 'very positive' reports about Eric Berry
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told Sirius XM NFL Radio that safety Eric Berry's battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma is going well.

"Well, anybody who knows Eric Berry knows that if there's a challenge presented to him, he will attack it with a vengeance," Dorsey said, per NFL.com. "And he will do that. Everything that I have gotten back has been very positive. I have not spoken with him on the phone for probably six weeks, but I have texts. We communicated through texts. He's in good spirits, he's fine, he's driving, and he's going to conquer it."

Berry, 26, was diagnosed in December. His career is on hold while he fights the treatable disease.

Chiefs have high expectations for TE Travis Kelce
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Although Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce led the team in receiving in 2014, head coach Andy Reid has even higher expectations for him in 2015, according to the Kansas City Star.

Reid believes that the best is yet to come for Kelce.

“You’d think the natural progression would be even more and better, and he was pretty good last year,” Reid said. “He’s tremendously talented, loves to play the game. He’s like a little kid out there. He loves to play.”

Despite the high praise from Reid, the coach knows that there is still room for improvement for the 25-year-old.

“You could see the progress every week in a positive direction,” Reid said. “We kept adding to his menu there, so the plays we wanted to dial up in formations and motions, the running backs and tight ends, they have to know what they’re doing with those. So he continually got better with that as time went on."

After recording no stats as a rookie due to being placed on injured reserve, Kelce tallied 67 receptions for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014, all were team-highs.
