Duron Carter, son of Cris Carter, works out for Kansas City

Duron Carter's surname alone is enough to warrant a look, but the son of Minnesota Vikings legend Cris Carter also has tangibles that have caught the eye of the Chiefs.

Per Andrew Kulha of 247Sports, "Carter, who spent two seasons in the CFL after going undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft, was in for a workout in Kansas City this past Wednesday. He's an intruiging wide reciever prospect for a few reasons, manly because of his size, 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, and of course his NFL pedigree."

Duron Carter caught 124 passes for 1,939 yards and 12 touchdowns in his two seasons with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Gary Gibbs won't take Redskins' DC opening

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Washington Redskins were "denied permission" to interview Chiefs linebackers coach Gary Gibbs for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

However, a conflicting report from Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star indicates that Gibbs flat turned down the interview request.

That would fall more in line with coach Andy Reid's recent assertion that he wouldn't block his assistant from seeking opportunities elsewhere.

"I’m not into slowing anyone down from being able to better themselves professionally, but we’ll see how all that goes down," Reid said, via 247Sports.

Jeremy Maclin a "big splash" option at WR if Chiefs go that route

The Kansas City Chiefs receiving corps' struggles to get into the end zone were well-documented this season, and it's likely that the team's brass will look to free agency and draft to boost their talent at the position.

As 247Sports' Andrew Kulha posits, "I don't think anyone would blame them for making some huge cap room for a guy like Jeremy Maclin or even Randall Cobb from Green Bay if the Packers choose to let him walk (unlikely). More likely is that we'll see the Chiefs bring in at least one mid-tier receiver in hopes that he can be the missing piece, though."

Maclin's definitely a "big splash" guy like Kulha terms him to be, but the Chiefs' recent track record with signing wide receivers points to them stocking up from just above the bargain bin.
