KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend Saturday, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager, thanking them for all they'd done before turning the gun on himself. Authorities did not release a possible motive for the killings, though police said that Belcher and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra M. Perkins, had been arguing recently. The two have a 3-month-old girl who was being cared for by family.

The Cleveland Browns signed offensive lineman Seth McKinney to a 1-year deal yesterday and terminated fullback Terrelle Smith's contract before he was due a roster bonus at the end of the week. McKinney started 34 games in five seasons with Miami, but missed all of last season after neck surgery. The 6-3, 310-pounder can play guard and center. His addition will help the Browns' offensive line, which was thinned by injuries last season. Cleveland has made its line a priority during free agency and has already re-signed former Eagles center Hank Fraley and given guard Eric Steinbach a 7-year, $49.5 million contract.

Both newspapers in Denver reported yesterday that the Broncos will name New England's offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, as their new head coach. The 32-year-old reportedly will be introduced as Denver's new coach today, the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News reported on their Web sites. The Broncos did not respond to phone messages and e-mails from the Associated Press seeking comment. McDaniels will replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired Dec. 30 after 14 seasons with three years and $21 million left on his contract.

John Collins joined the Cleveland Browns from the NFL office with the reputation of being a strong negotiator in the boardroom. Less than 2 years later, he left without saying a word. Collins resigned yesterday as the club's president, ending a late-season power struggle in Cleveland's front office that outraged already-disgusted Browns fans and nearly led to the firing of general manager Phil Savage. Browns owner Randy Lerner, hoping to put the focus back on football, capped a few bizarre days of rumors and turmoil by releasing a statement in which he said Collins had resigned and Savage and coach Romeo Crennel will remain in their current roles.

The Minnesota Vikings denied an ESPN report that Randy Moss is on the trading block. Owner Red McCombs told the Minneapolis Star Tribune he has not given vice president of football operations Red Brzezinski permission to shop Moss. "I don't know why this thing keeps being brought up," Brzezinski told the newspaper. "It hasn't even been discussed at all. " Team sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Sunday that McCombs gave permission this week for the personnel office and coach Mike Tice to trade the wide receiver.

Romeo Crennel got another Super Bowl ring and the job as the Cleveland Browns' head coach. Brad Childress didn't get a ring or the Browns' job. Nevertheless, the Eagles' offensive coordinator isn't complaining about the consolation prize he received yesterday when the team extended his contract by three years through the 2008 season. The deal is believed to be worth $1 million per season, ranking Childress among the highest-paid coordinators in the NFL. "It's a pretty good upside," Childress said last night from his South Jersey home.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - People were coming and going on Sunday from the house where, a day before, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend before committing suicide in front of his coach, general manager, and defensive coordinator at the team's training facility. Around the time the Chiefs were playing the Carolina Panthers at Arrowhead Stadium about five miles away, two men loaded bags into a car and two women drove away. Police did not release any additional information about the murder-suicide.

Going 2-1 and stunning then-undefeated Green Bay as Kansas City's interim head coach meant a lot more than gratification for Romeo Crennel. It also persuaded the Kansas City Chiefs to give the affable, 64-year-old defensive specialist a second chance to be an NFL head coach. The Chiefs announced Monday that Crennel was the official replacement for the fired Todd Haley, removing the interim tag he bore for the last three weeks of the season. "The three games had a lot to do with where we arrived at this decision," general manager Scott Pioli said.

And in Arena Football League action, the Cleveland Browns defeated the visiting Cincinnati Bengals, 51-45. Oops, check that. The Browns defeated the Bengals in National Football League action. A score like that threw us off a bit. Derek Anderson (20-for-33, 328 yards) threw five touchdown passes, Jamal Lewis rushed for 216 yards and the Browns, so desperate after being embarrassed in their home opener that they traded their starting quarterback 2 days later, outlasted the Bengals and Carson Palmer.

The Cleveland Browns seem to be aiming at the return of Marty Schottenheimer as their coach for the 2009 season, ESPN.com reported yesterday. The Browns plan to fire Romeo Crennel after a disappointing year, the Web site reported, although team officials have been silent on the matter. Schottenheimer recently said he had no plans to return to the sideline, but ESPN said he would consider coming back "with a team that has a good core of talent. " Schottenheimer, 65, was fired by the San Diego Chargers after leading the team to a 14-2 record in 2006.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Nobody is identified with Kansas City football or bleeds Chiefs red more than Len Dawson. The Hall of Fame quarterback played 13 seasons with the Chiefs until the age of 40. Now 78, he is still the radio color analyst for the Chiefs and also does some local TV work. And Dawson, like so many around the Kansas City area, is enjoying the early success of a Chiefs team that is 2-0 after a 2-14 season. The Chiefs look to surpass last season's win total with Thursday's highly anticipated matchup at Lincoln Financial Field with the Eagles.

Three black former NFL head coaches say the league needs to revise its Rooney Rule for promoting minority hiring after 15 top vacancies - eight head coaching jobs and seven general manager positions - were all filled by white candidates since the regular season ended a month ago. "I know the concept is good and something we need to do," said Tony Dungy, who was with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2006 season, when he became the first black coach...

Chip Kelly was Jeffrey Lurie's most important hire in 14 years. Now Kelly will have to make the most important hire of his career. The offensive-minded coach needs someone to run the Eagles defense, and after four seasons of subpar play the defensive coordinator hire may be every bit as pivotal as Lurie's choice of Kelly as his head coach this week. "I got a list of guys I want to talk to," Kelly said Thursday. Several names have already been mentioned. The Eagles have reportedly reached out to Georgia's Todd Grantham, Florida's Dan Quinn, and Alabama's Kirby Smart.

There is no precedent for Andy Reid. It is as futile to predict his chances for success in Kansas City based on prior coaches' records as it was to forecast an eventual Super Bowl in Philadelphia because Bill Cowher took 14 years to win one. Reid's immediate predecessors failed spectacularly after leaving the Eagles. Buddy Ryan was a disaster in Arizona. Rich Kotite was a debacle with the Jets. Ray Rhodes was a debasticle - so bad we need to create a new word - in his lone year in Green Bay. You could argue that Reid, like Rhodes, could use a year off to decompress.

Clearly, the Kansas City Chiefs have not paid attention to the fine details of Andy Reid's tenure as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. Otherwise, there is no way they would have let general manager Scott Pioli walk out the door moments before Reid walked in as the new head coach on Friday. I'm not saying Reid was a bad hire. Despite the way things ended, his resumé over 14 years as the Eagles coach is impressive. He didn't win a Super Bowl, but he won more games than any coach in Eagles history, made the playoffs nine times, reached five NFC Championship Games and made it to a Super Bowl.

Quite a day for NFL sacks. Seven coaches and five general managers were fired Monday in a flurry of pink slips that were delivered the day after the regular season ended. There could be more, but so far the sent-packing scorecard looks like this: Lovie Smith in Chicago and Ken Whisenhunt in Arizona, coaches who took teams to the Super Bowl; Norv Turner in San Diego; Pat Shurmur in Cleveland; Romeo Crennel in Kansas City; Chan Gailey in Buffalo; and, of course, Andy Reid with the Eagles.

ROMEO CRENNEL stood in the middle of the Chiefs' locker room Sunday, the emotion threatening to overcome the good-natured coach. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt was at his side, offering support. Members of the team hugged each other, the mud smearing with tears on their cheeks. And over along the wall stood the empty locker that once belonged to Jovan Belcher, his jersey still hanging from a hook. Just 1 day after the linebacker killed his girlfriend and then turned the gun on himself, the Chiefs banded together to play their finest game of the season, an inspired, 27-21 victory over the Carolina Panthers that ended an eight-game losing streak suddenly rendered trivial.

Mike Holmgren, the Cleveland Browns executive who was ousted last month after Jimmy Haslam bought the team, wants to coach again, and he apparently has his eyes set on Dallas. Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com said Sunday that Holmgren has "serious interest" in coaching the Cowboys if Jason Garrett is fired. Sources close to Holmgren told La Canfora he's attracted to the role "given the competitiveness of the roster, the skill players present, and his long relationship with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
