Chiefs not trying to be Kansas City Ravens

The Kansas City Chiefs signed three Ravens free agents this offseason -- nose tackle Kelly Gregg, fullback Le'Ron McClain and offensive tackle Jared Gaither -- just seven months after getting routed 30-7 by the Ravens in the playoffs.

Did getting manhandled by the Ravens in the postseason lead the Chiefs to sign players from that team?

"A coincidence," Chiefs coach Todd Haley told Kansas City reporters. "Now, again, if you're able to acquire players that you think can fit with what you're doing, and they're coming from teams that are winning-type teams, I think that's a good thing."

Those former Ravens will return to M&T Bank Stadium on Friday, when the Chiefs play their second preseason game there.

"I don't think they're trying to take anything from Baltimore or bring this over here," McClain told the Kansas City Star. "We're Kansas City Chiefs, not Baltimore Ravens."
