Andy Reid is reportedly close to agreeing to a deal that would make him the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. Earlier this week, we heard an extremely similar report about Reid being on the verge of signing with the Arizona Cardinals, but according ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen things have changed.
On Thursday morning, Schefter tweeted that he and Mortensen had spoken to sources who say Reid and the Chiefs have agreed on all of the major issues regarding a contract and are now in the process of ironing out minor details. Schefter said during an appearance on SportsCenter that the “feeling and expectation” is that the two sides will be able to reach a deal.
While nothing is certain and Reid has reportedly yet to cancel scheduled meetings with the Cardinals and San Diego Chargers, the ESPN report sheds some light on the Twitter beef we showed you between NFL reporters Mike Florio and Jason La Canfora earlier in the week. Florio questioned La Canfora’s report about Reid meeting with the Cardinals on Wednesday, saying that he believed La Canfora’s information came from Reid’s agent, who simply wanted other potential Reid suitors to present their best offers sooner rather than later.
Should Reid indeed end up agreeing to terms with the Chiefs, Florio would come out of this whole thing looking pretty good. So would the Chiefs.
