ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Andy Reid is now most likely headed to Kansas City, not Arizona, after he met with the Chiefs for 9 hours yesterday.

"The Chiefs were trying to close a deal with Andy Reid," Mortensen said. "At this point I'm going to be surprised if Andy Reid is not the Chiefs' coach. Now, I've been surprised before, but there's a lot of activity there. Some would say, ‘Why Kansas City over Arizona?' One thing is, in Kansas City, Clark Hunt, the owner of the Chiefs, he'll let Andy Reid build this thing the way he wants to build it. And if you know Andy, he wants to be able to basically pick the entire organization, set up his personnel. . . . The Chiefs are willing, and Clark Hunt is willing to do that."

One of the interesting side stories to Reid possibly taking the Cardinals job was that they are scheduled to play in Philadelphia next year. Ironically... so are the Chiefs!

So it seems that unless a 3rd team jumps in the mix here, we'll be seeing Andy Reid back at the Linc next year.

If you're interested, I did a Q&A with our Chiefs blog, Arrowhead Pride about Andy. Ended up being a lot longer and explored the downfall of Reid a lot more than I intended.
