Former Eagles coach Andy Reid has canceled trips to interview in other cities and is hashing out the final details of a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, a source involved in the talks told your Eagletarian Thursday.

Chiefs officials met with Reid for more than 8 hours Wednesday and apparently agreed on issues like control and structure.

Today's details apparently include which coaches Reid will bring with him from the Eagles' staff. Scuttlebutt holds that Reid and Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg might not be joined at the hip after all, that Mornhinweg, who traveled to New Orleans this week to watch son Skyler's Florida team play in the Sugar Bowl, might not be Reid's OC in Kansas City.

Also available is another former Eagles offensive coordinator under Reid, Brad Childress, fired this week in Cleveland. It seems Reid might bring both Childress and former Eagles and Browns GM Tom Heckert with him to Kansas City.
