Kansas City Chiefs cut Fred Williams after drafting a receiver

The 2016 NFL Draft was apparently not good for WR Fred Williams. The Kansas City Chiefs have announced they have cut Williams. We have waived WR Fred Williams. — Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) May 4, 2016 He was on the bottom of the Chiefs roster but he did have a good preseason last year so I figured he would stick around for the summer. It's getting harder to make the Chiefs roster though. They have a lot of good players and they're slowly increasing the talent level, including at receiver where the Chiefs added DeMarcus Robinson in the draft. If Robinson makes the team - good shot he...

Is 4th round pick Joshua Perry a future replacement for Manti Te'o?

The Chargers just might have stole a starter in the 3rd day of the draft. Joey Bosa is the impact player the Chargers desperately need on the interior. Hunter Henry is the extended offensive lineman to enhance the run game. Max Tuerk is the center we've all been waiting for. In the 4th round, the Chargers selected Bosa's teammate linebacker Joshua Perry. Common sense says that he'll come in and be a special teamer and added depth. Common sense would also say the 6'4/254 pound linebacker is a thumper and doesn't fit in today's NFL. I would agree with that. With the caveat that you haven't...

Stanford coach David Shaw knew Kevin Hogan to Chiefs was a great situation

Stanford head coach David Shaw is respected in NFL circles with his name thrown around in the usual group of candidates for hirings each year. Though he has stayed in college, Shaw apparently follows some of the NFL game because he realized that Kansas City was the perfect spot for his quarterback at Stanford, Kevin Hogan. After the Chiefs drafted him in the fifth round, Hogan said he had just gotten off the phone with Shaw "and we were just smiling from ear to ear because of the situation for me. We have so much respect for Coach Reid and what he’s done for the quarterbacks in developing...

Chiefs draft pick says he has speed like Odell Beckham, hands like Brandon Marshall

Winner for the best quote to the Kansas City media after the draft goes to WR Demarcus Robinson, who was picked up by the Chiefs in the fourth round. Robinson was asked which NFL receivers have similar traits as him. He gave this answer: "I would say I have Odell (Beckham Jr.) type of speed. Pretty good hands, somebody like Brandon Marshall." Odell Beckham speed + Brandon Marshall hands is probably the greatest receiver ever. That's Randy Moss on steroids. Jerry Rice couldn't touch that combo. I don't mean to give Robinson a hard time. I'm sure he didn't mean he was the greatest receiver in...

USA Today says Denver Broncos has had the worst offseason of all NFL Teams

People outside of Denver think the Broncos have had a rough go at it this offseason, but is it really as bad as they say? Fresh off an impressive playoff run that ended with a victory in Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos free agents became the hottest commodities on the free agent market. Insane contracts were offered to both Malik Jackson and Brock Osweiler, which the cap strapped Broncos were unable to match. Other free agents left too, like Danny Trevathan and David Bruton Jr. Add the retirement of Peyton Manning and it is easy to see why people around the league would assume the Broncos...

ESPN's Outside The Lines takes on Chiefs selection of Tyreek Hill

As I wondered earlier this week whether the Kansas City Chiefs misjudged the reaction to the selection of Tyreek Hill, I noted that it was mostly still a local story. National outlets hadn't yet picked up on the Chiefs selection. It's no longer just a local story. A few national outlets have picked it up in recent days and now ESPN's Outside The Lines will tackle the Hill case in a segment this afternoon. "It was a pick buried five rounds and 165 selections into last week's NFL draft but it's becoming larger and larger news," Bob Ley says in the ESPN promo for the show at 12:30 p.m....

New Chief Parker Ehinger sounds like an Andy Reid type of offensive lineman

Kansas City Chiefs guard Parker Ehinger sounds like a throwback type of player. Real old school type that will probably fit in well with the Chiefs offensive line group. Chiefs scout Pat Sperduto talked with the media after the draft and relayed a little bit of what he knew about Ehinger, the Chiefs fourth round pick out of Cincinnati. "Yeah, he’s a guy that’s started more than 50 games at Cincinnati," Sperduto said. "He’s played guard, he’s played tackle, so the versatility adds to his value. He’s a guy that shows a ton of patience in his game, he has aggression, he knows when to...

These recent left tackle contracts shouldn't be an Eric Fisher comparison

I like Eric Fisher. He's been getting better and better each year. He put it as a "steady incline" which is true. I hope the Chiefs can keep him. However, I hope these recent contracts given to left tackles are not comparisons for Fisher's next deal. The Saints gave OT Terron Armstead $64.5 million over five years. The Bills gave OT Cordy Glenn $65 million over five years. That is a lot of money! The Chiefs should give Fisher an extension. They'll be paying for future performance because he is going to better each year. That said, I hope these contracts from the Saints and Bills are not...

2017 NFL mock draft has Kansas City Chiefs potentially replacing Eric Fisher

The 2016 NFL draft is over so let's prepare our 2017 NFL mock drafts. SB Nation released their 2017 mock draft and the Kansas City Chiefs are going with an offensive tackle, which is an interesting pick and something we will be talking about until Eric Fisher gets an extension (if he ever does). Dan Kadar from SB Nation selected UCLA OT Conor McDermott for the Chiefs. "The Chiefs face another tough offseason with free agency coming for Eric Berry, Eric Fisher and Dontari Poe. For the sake of this mock, let's assume it is Fisher who leaves." I believe the Chiefs will get Berry's deal done...

Will there be quarterback competition on the Denver Broncos this season?

Mark Sanchez is the starter and presumably Paxton Lynch is the backup with Trevor Siemian rounding out the roster for quarterbacks. How much competition will there be before Week 1? You can already see two camps forming in Broncos Country. One is already all-in on Paxton Lynch starting week 1 for the Denver Broncos, while the other buys into the thought that he is too raw to play in the NFL as a rookie and Mark Sanchez must be the starter. The truth is, no one really knows anything right now. Lynch could be too raw to play as a rookie or he could ramp up so quickly that he finds himself the...

Horse Tracks: Sanchez happy Broncos didn't add veteran QB

The Denver Broncos may have drafted quarterback Paxton Lynch, but they didn't bring in a veteran signal caller to compete against Mark Sanchez for a starting job in 2016. That makes Sanchez a very happy player. Good Morning, Broncos Country. The Denver Broncos used their first-round selection on Memphis product Paxton Lynch in the 2016 NFL Draft, but their decision to not sign another veteran quarterback to the roster has Mark Sanchez excited about the prospect of starting this year for the team.

Denver Broncos see Super Bowl repeat odds plunge after 2016 NFL Draft

Las Vegas didn't like what they saw from the Denver Broncos during the 2016 NFL Draft and made their odds of repeating more unlikely than it was a week ago. Let the underdogs continue to be underdogs. The reigning Super Bowl champions plummeted from 10-1 odds to repeat to 16-1 odds. The Denver Broncos are now slated with the 8th best odds of repeating as champions after being tied with the 2nd best odds prior to the 2016 NFL Draft. Meanwhile, there is one AFC team that never seems to suffer a setback from the Las Vegas oddsmakers, even with a four-game suspension of their star quarterback....
