KANSAS CITY -- Two days ago, there were breathless reports out of Arizona that Andy Reid was very close to becoming the head coach of the Cardinals. Now it doesn't even appear that the Cardinals are the leading candidates for Reid's services.

Reid interviewed with the Chiefs on Wednesday and ended up delaying a scheduled meeting with the Cardinals in order to extend his meeting with the Chiefs. And ESPN's Chris Mortensen said on Mike and Mike in the Morning that the events of the last 24 hours suggest that Reid is getting close to a deal in Kansas City.

"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."

If the Chiefs are going to give total control to Reid, that would appear to be bad news for Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli, but Mortensen said it still remains to be seen whether Scott Pioli would stay in Kansas City if Reid got the job.

All of this could change quickly - after all, on New Year's Day there were multiple reports that the Cardinals were getting close to a deal with Reid. But at the moment, Reid going to Kansas City appears to be a strong possibility.
