Safety Eric Berry said he was hopeful he could come to an agreement on a long-term contract with the Chiefs before Wednesday's deadline for teams to designate franchise players. "I'm just being patient because you never know . . . I'm not getting my hopes up," Berry said. Berry said he hasn't changed his earlier stance that he wouldn't play with the Chiefs for the second straight season on the franchise tag. "I still stand by that," Berry said.

The Chiefs also announced former WR Carlos Carson as this year's entrant to the team's Hall of Fame. Carson played for the Chiefs from 1980 through 1989. He's eighth in the franchise record book in catches (352), fifth in receiving yards (6,360) and tied for seventh in receiving TDs (33).

The Chiefs are announcing at the moment Tyreek Hill as their rookie of the year and Eric Berry as their Most Valuable Player. Obvious choice in the case of Hill. Good choice in the case of Berry. Hill was his only strong competition.

My bad on the number of Chiefs draft picks. Forgot they lost their sixth-round pick this year as part of the penalty for tampering with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin before he was a free agent. So they should have 10 picks.

The Chiefs were awarded four compensatory picks for this year's draft, giving them 11 choices overall. The Chiefs will get one additional pick in each of the third and fifth rounds and two extra choices in the sixth round. These picks are in addition to their original allotment of seven picks, one in each round. The Chiefs haven't made more than 11 picks and a draft since 2008, when they had 12.

Chiefs sign veteran RB Spiller to provide depth

The Chiefs have signed veteran running back C.J. Spiller, providing depth behind Spencer Ware in a move that could mean Jamaal Charles will be cut in a cost-saving move.

The Chiefs have signed veteran running back C.J. Spiller. Spiller, 29, may not have much left. He was with three teams last year, rushing for a total of 18 yards. He also did little with the Saints in 2015. But given where the Chiefs are at running back right now, they have nothing to lose. If Spiller can get back to where he was with the Bills a few years ago, they have much to gain.

Chiefs should sign Zach Brown

It's time for Kansas City to upgrade at linebacker, and Brown would be an excellent addition.

Will Poe or Berry land Chiefs' franchise tag?

Safety Eric Berry would be Kansas City's most logical choice. But his threat to sit out if tagged again makes defensive tackle Dontari Poe the team's most likely choice.


Instant replay for Eric Berry and tag?

The Chiefs' three-time All-Pro safety could land the team's franchise tag for the second straight year, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. DT Dontari Poe is another K.C. candidate, Caplan says. The period for declaring those players will begin on Wednesday.
