KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Even though the Chiefs appear to have fallen out of the running for Peyton Manning, it hasn't stopped them from upgrading a sorely lacking offence.

One day after signing bruising running back Peyton Hillis, Kansas City added tight end Kevin Boss, who spent last season with the AFC West rival Oakland Raiders.

Along with the decision to franchise wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, they're the first steps toward reworking an offence that managed the second-fewest points in the NFL last season.

Boss said on a conference call with reporters Friday that the reason he chose to sign with Kansas City was because he believes the Chiefs can compete for championships right away.
