ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid is serious about what he has said about competition at the cornerback position.
Sean Smith, last year's starter at right cornerback, moved to the second team for the last four days of organized team activities. His status hasn't changed three days into training camp.
''We look at Sean as a first-team player,'' Reid said. ''We need all those guys and we need two-deep at the corner where we feel like that two-deep is equivalent to starting players. That's where we're looking.''
The Chiefs are in transition following a 2013 season where the defense ranked 25th against the pass (247.6 yards per game).
Another factor for changes may have been the memory of blowing a 38-10 third-quarter lead en route to a 45-44 playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
