"We have made up our mind," Reid said. "And it will be a good player. That's what I can tell you."
NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah says he'd "be surprised" if it was anyone else but Fisher, and NFL Network's Mike Mayock agrees. So does Fox Sports insider and NFL Network contributor Jay Glazer.
Reid confirmed the Chiefs have yet to inform the player-to-be-chosen of their plans. One reason? The phone is still ringing -- and Kansas City is still listening.
"We are taking calls," Reid said. "We do have the player we like in mind, and we're ready to roll with him and welcome him into ... Kansas City and help us become a better football team. But you do keep your ears open, and you listen to all the different options that are presented to you. But we feel pretty strong about the guy we have in mind."
