NFL: AFC Wildcard Playoff-Kansas City Chiefs at Indianapolis ColtsFOXBORO, Mass. — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid might need to study his Massachusetts atlas a little closer.

Reid had some high praise for North Attleboro, Mass., native Anthony Sherman, but in complimenting the fullback, he moved him 70 miles south.

“He’s got some of that Cape Cod toughness, so he brings it every play,” Reid said. “He’s a tough guy, and you know what, he’s very versatile, which I don’t think people realize. He’s got tremendous hands, too. You can do a lot of things with him and move him around. He could equally fit in the tight end role if you need him in there and do the blocking and the receiving part of that.”

Sherman was born and raised south of Boston and played football for the North Attleboro High Red Rocketeers.

The Chiefs play Sherman’s hometown New England Patriots Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium. North Attleboro is nine miles south of Gillette Stadium.

Sherman has two carries for 8 yards on the season with one reception for 1 yard.
