Arrowheadlines: Chiefs take pay cuts, Jamaal Charles mystery visit

Arrowheadlines: Chiefs take pay cuts, Jamaal Charles mystery visit

The Star’s first-round NFL Draft projection, version 1.0 | The Kansas City Star The pressure is on Alex Smith to deliver, and while he is indeed their quarterback for 2017, the cap-tight Chiefs could save $17 million by releasing him next year. They could also create some cap room by extending him, but the point is, his future will likely be determined by how he fares this season. That said, someone like Mahomes — who ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay recently called a cross between Brett Favre and Johnny Manziel — could be tempting to the Chiefs, who have done plenty of background...

Geoff Schwartz on why Alex Smith isn’t in the elite category but why he can still do it

Geoff Schwartz on why Alex Smith isn’t in the elite category but why he can still do it

Former KC Chiefs player and SB Nation contributor Geoff Schwartz joined NFL Network (H/T Arrowhead Addict) to talk about the Chiefs chances in 2017. Geoff thinks the Chiefs can be better if they address certain spots like inside linebacker with Derrick Johnson’s uncertainty. We’re not here to talk about inside linebackers though. They don’t get the headlines. We’re here to talk about the quarterbacks. Geoff did mention Tony Romo and you can go and listen to what he said but the Chiefs aren’t getting him so I’ll pass over that one. Geoff did talk about Alex Smith, which was...

This is a bad tweet about the Chiefs

This is a bad tweet about the Chiefs

Some tweets are good. Some tweets are bad. It’s the nature of tweeting. This is a bad tweet: Heard #Chiefs may have modest interest in former #Texans now #Browns QB Brock Osweiller as backup to Alex Smith? If it was me, I'd do swap! — Chiefs Insider (@ChiefsInsider) March 14, 2017 I threw up in my mouth a little bit reading this. It’s a bad take. Probably the worst one you’ll read today.

Chiefs not interested in Tony Romo

Chiefs not interested in Tony Romo

The Chiefs have made it clear that they plan to stick with quarterback Alex Smith. That should, by implication, make it clear that they're not interested in quarterback Tony Romo.

NFL media is still talking about Tony Romo and the Chiefs

NFL media is still talking about Tony Romo and the Chiefs

The NFL media continues to talk about Tony Romo and the Kansas City Chiefs, despite every decision-maker on the Chiefs having already put their support behind Alex Smith for the 2017 season. Someone asked ESPN’s Ed Werder where Romo wants to play next. He said, “I've been told Houston, Denver and KC.” ESPN’s Trey Wingo replied to that and said, “Said it many time[s] ... KC would be ideal. Question is are they willing to move on from Alex.” Joe Banner, also of ESPN and formerly the president of the Eagles with Andy Reid, replied, “Not that Romo isn't interested [it’s] that...

5 Chiefs stories to know: QBs in the draft, Dontari Poe and LDT doing cool things

5 Chiefs stories to know: QBs in the draft, Dontari Poe and LDT doing cool things

Here are five Chiefs stories of note from the past week: The Chiefs are likely to stick with Alex Smith for 2017, but Mike Mayock commented on a few lesser-named QBs in the draft that the Chiefs could select (Arrowhead Pride). The Chiefs have four picks (27, 59, 91, 104) in the first three rounds of the draft this year. If KC doesn’t use their first or second-round pick to get a QB then they need to make it a priority when round three rolls around. Whether it’s this year or next, Smith’s days in KC are numbered. The Chiefs have been a really good team with No. 11 under center, but...

Today’s “Chiefs commit to Alex Smith in 2017” report is here

It’s almost a daily thing now. The Kansas City Chiefs say they’re committed to Alex Smith in 2017 and it’s reported all throughout Kansas City as if it’s a surprise. I personally stopped being surprised when Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said Alex was their guy. For today’s report on the Chiefs staying committed to Alex, we go to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports: Just had a great chat with Chiefs GM John Dorsey. Video will be up shortly.

Chiefs appear to bow out of Tony Romo sweepstakes

Chiefs appear to bow out of Tony Romo sweepstakes

Stop with the Tony Romo-to-Kansas City talk. Unless the Chiefs are blatantly lying (which is possible), Kansas City is not going to target the 36-year-old quarterback this offseason. They’re sticking with Alex Smith. Not convinced? Try these quotes on for size: “Alex is our quarterback — there’s no question about that or anything else.” — Coach Andy Reid to the Kansas City Star in January. “We’ve said all along he is the starter — I don’t know what more you want to say.” — General manager John Dorsey to the ‘Star in February. “I would just reiterate what Andy...

Chiefs again say Alex Smith will remain starter next season

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith will "be our starter going into 2017," said team CEO Clark Hunt. What It Means: Hunt is in tune with head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey, who have all made it clear Smith will remain the Chiefs' starter moving forward. His 67.1 completion percentage last season was the second-best of Smith's career. Smith's game manager ways led him to a 0.14 Passing Net Expected Points per drop back in 2016, just above the league average of 0.12. This was 16th-best among 39 quarterbacks with at least 100 drop...

Mike Mayock takes on Alex Smith, Chiefs quarterback options in 2017 NFL Draft

Mike Mayock takes on Alex Smith, Chiefs quarterback options in 2017 NFL Draft

We’ve got some Mayock-ing to do over the next few days. The NFL Network’s Mike Mayock spoke on a conference call with reporters this week and as usual he went really long with some great answers, including one on the Kansas City Chiefs. I believe it was the KC Star’s Terez Paylor who asked Mayock about his confidence in Alex Smith as well as the quarterbacks he likes in this draft. Mayock started off by saying something about Alex that I tried to point out the other day. “I am bullish on Alex Smith because I read you guys a list of quarterbacks early on, and, you know, there's...

Clark Hunt completes the Chiefs trifecta backing up Alex Smith

Clark Hunt completes the Chiefs trifecta backing up Alex Smith

Andy Reid said at the Pro Bowl that Alex Smith was their quarterback heading into 2017. John Dorsey was asked after that if Alex Smith was their guy heading into 2017 and he said yes. Now we turn to the third and final decision-maker, the one that really matters: Clark Hunt. The Chiefs owner spoke to the KC Star at the 101 Awards and had this to say: “I would just reiterate what Andy has said several times throughout the offseason, which is he’s very happy with Alex and Alex is going to be our starter going into 2017,” Hunt said. (Terez’s story has some good quarterback in there,...

Boomer Esiason says Alex Smith makes sense with the Jets

Boomer Esiason says Alex Smith makes sense with the Jets

Former NFL QB and radio host Boomer Esiason says Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith would be a good fit with the New York Jets. There’s no indication this is a real thing - just his opinion. "He can handle the crap if he has to," Esiason said. "He would be a very steady influence and somebody who is in the midst of his prime. And he knows the West Coast offense. I'm assuming that's what [new offensive coordinator] Johnny Morton is going to be running? "There's no way Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are going to be ready for that. They're just not ready for it. Alex has, obviously,...
