Sackless Chiefs make changes



AP Sports Writer

RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- Led by one of the best pass rushers of a generation, the Kansas City Chiefs were once one of the NFL's best teams at getting to the quarterback.

The last few years? Not so much.

On the same week the late Derrick Thomas will be inducted into the Hall of the Fame, the Chiefs begin training camp searching for a way to get some kind of pass rush. After setting an NFL record for fewest sacks in a season with 10, it can't get much worse.

The Chiefs have retooled the defense, brought in new players, switched old players to new positions and hired a new defensive coordinator.
