Chiefs re-sign Kolby Smith, Gutierrez, release Goff

The Chiefs re-signed running back Kolby Smith and quarterback Matt Gutierrez on Wednesday. Guard Mike Goff was released.

Smith, a fifth-round draft choice by the Chiefs in 2007, has shown enough ability to keep them intrigued, although his last two seasons have been ended prematurely by injuries. They’ll hope he can stay healthy and do more to consistently spell Jamaal Charles in 2010.

Goff, a 12-year veteran acquired during the 2009 offseason, started seven games for the Chiefs last year but eventually was replaced by Wade Smith. He also played for Cincinnati and San Diego.
