Were reports of the Kansas City Chiefs being out of the hunt for CB Sean Smith a bit premature? Terez Paylor, a team beat writer for the Kansas City Star, believes so. He is hearing that the Chiefs are making a strong push to retain Smith, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Smith, a 2009 draft selection out of Utah by the Miami Dolphins, has had 353 tackles, 10 interceptions, three forced fumbles, 81 passes deflected, and a defensive touchdown over his career.

Trey Lance was impressive on Tuesday. It may have been his best practice of training camp. The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback completed all 13 of his passes during team drills before his final throw, intended for wide receiver Richie James, fell incomplete. Lance even had a beautiful deep touchdown throw to Trent Sherfield that wowed teammates, the media, and fans. However, most of his passes on the day were shorter throws. Head coach Kyle Shanahan insists that the team's quarterback plans haven't changed. A few practices aren't going to change that. Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter, and Lance will serve as his backup.
