Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.

We may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world-wide web, just for fun.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading

Chiefs GM John Dorsey has been busy trying to fill holes with cheap free agents since the draft ended. Ben Nielsen at Arrowhead Addict wonders if future Hall-of-Fame safety Ed Reed makes sense for Kansas City’s need at free safety.

Reed would be an interesting thought for the Chiefs if they feel the need to add more depth to their secondary. It is likely no team would be willing to give Reed a starting job at this stage of his career. His body cannot hold up to the 1,000 snaps he used to play year in and year out. But it is not out of the question that Reed could give the Chiefs a solid 300-400 snaps this season in the secondary.

Nielsen also speculates that kicker Ryan Succop’s job could be in jeopardy. S’uccop is one of the highest-paid kickers in the league, but isn’t exactly elite. He also has strong camp competition from former Tulane Green Wave kicker Cairo Santos [since I am a Tulane Alum, I'd sort of like seeing a Green Wave guy make the Chiefs].

Meanwhile, the Royals continued offensive struggles has fans wondering what the team could do to boost the offense to match the team’s strong pitching and defense. Royals review’s Max Rieper suggests the Royals might consider free agent slugger Kendrys Morales now that he no longer carries draft pick compensation.

On the other hand, the Kansas City Star’s Vahe Gregorian writes that young starter Danny Duffy flashed his true potential in Kansas City’s shutout of St. Louis on Monday.
