A source close to the Chiefs on Edwards

So is Herm Edwards going to Kansas City? Here is the take of a source close to the Chiefs.

"I've heard that KC wants to have this done by Wednesday or Friday at the latest," said the source. "Peterson was careful about his remarks about Edwards after [the Bengals] game, but its clear he's the top choice ahead of Jeff Fisher, Butch Davis and Gregg Williams.

"I've heard that Edwards has made his decision and asked to be let out of his contract so he can take over for Vermeil in KC," the source continued. "I hear the Chiefs are willing to part with the draft picks to get Edwards provided it didn't include the teams first round pick. With (Chiefs offensive coordinator) Al Saunders heading to Detroit most likely by weeks end, [the Chiefs thinks Edwards would be a perfect candidate to take over the Chiefs."
