Hunt Says That New Chiefs GM Brett Veach to Have Final Say Over Roster

It’s sounding more and more like the Chiefs new top man will have final say, as Pro Football Rumors reports that new GM Brett Veach will get control over the roster.

On Monday, owner Clark Hunt stated that Veach will have final say over the 53-man roster.

He’ll work in tandem with coach Andy Reid just like John Dorsey did when he was in GM, but it appears that Veach is in the driver’s seat.

There has been speculation that Reid helped to push Dorsey out the door and Hunt acknowledged that he spoke with Reid before making the decision. He did not get into specifics about Reid’s input but, as expected, the move was not made without the coach being consulted first.

There was no one single event that caused the firing of Dorsey, Hunt explained, saying that it was based on an overall evaluation of his work. That means the team’s awkward parting of ways with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin was not the impetus for canning Dorsey – if Hunt is to be believed.

Hunt says his goal is for the Chiefs to win a Super Bowl in the next 3-4 years, meaning that expectations are high for the young GM.
