Andy Reid doesn't want to have anything to do with running a defense.
Not only that, but the Kansas City Chiefs have drafted players for a 3-4 defense for years now—something Reid has never had on his team.
Ryan knows his business, and he wouldn't need anyone looking over his shoulder to make sure he's doing things right. Adding him to his staff would allow Reid to focus solely on running his offense.
And the Chiefs have some excellent players for Ryan to work with, too.
Eric Berry, Brandon Flowers, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Derrick Johnson—these are all players with the ability to shine, given the right direction. And if Dontari Poe ever learns to play assignment football and figures out how to get the most out of his amazing physical potential, we're talking about a serious threat in the middle for the Chiefs.
Adding Ryan makes perfect sense for the Chiefs, as long as Reid isn't threatened by Ryan's overwhelming personality.
