In an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday, free-agent safety Danieal Manning said he will be visiting the Chiefs on Thursday after a visit with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday.

Shortly after DeSean Jackson was released by the Eagles on Friday, the star wide receiver issued a statement tackling several subjects, including questions about his off-field behavior.
But Jackson also took the time to thank Chiefs coach Andy Reid for drafting him, which immediately got Chiefs fans buzzing.
“First I would like to thank the Eagles organization, the Eagles fans and the city of Philadelphia for my time in Philly,” Jackson said in a statement. “I would also like to thank coach Andy (Reid) for bringing me in.”
The Chiefs did not receive any compensatory picks this year, so they now know the exact six spots in which they will be picking, and they are:
First round, 23rd overall
Third round, 87th overall
Fourth round, 124th overall
Fifth round, 163rd overall
Sixth round, 193rd overall
Sixth round, 200th overall
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that Eric Fisher will move to left tackle next season and take the place of Branden Albert, who signed with Miami earlier this month.
“Right now I think I’m going to move him to the left side,” Reid said/ “That’s where he played in college, although Donald Stephenson played there for me and I know he can do that too, but I think I’m going to start off with Eric at left and keep Donald at right and then we roll.”
