Edwards a Chief? After two days of negotiating and, some suspect, several weeks of unspoken flirtation Herm Edwards has agreed to a four-year, $12 million contract to coach the Kansas City Chiefs, an NFL source told the New York Daily News on Sunday. The former Jets coach will be introduced today at a news conference in Kansas City, only one week after vowing that he had no interest in coaching elsewhere. Edwards didn’t make the financial score many industry sources predicted it was widely speculated he’d make $4 million annually from the Chiefs but his new contract represents more than a $1 million a year raise. He had two years and about $4 million remaining on his Jets contract; he tripled his guaranteed money by jumping teams. Texas junior quarterback Vince Young will forgo his final year of eligibility and make himself eligible for the NFL Draft. He made the announcement at a news conference this afternoon. “I’ve decided to enter the (NFL) draft this year,” Young said. “I know everyone’s behind me. I will not let y’all down.” Young said he also planned to get his degree and said his mother told him that it was his decision.

McCarthy, 42, became the fourth National Football League assistant coach to interview with general manager Ted Thompson, spending almost the entire day at Packers headquarters Sunday after arriving in Green Bay late Saturday afternoon. He is one of three offensive coordinators Thompson has on his shopping list and the only one to have worked in the Packers’ organization. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
