Chiefs' Marcus Cooper seeing some time at safety

There was talk of moving Jamell Fleming from cornerback to safety but apparently that wasn't the only talk of switching positions. The KC Star's Terez Paylor asked Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid about Marcus Cooper seeing some time at safety in the Chiefs first set of OTAs on Tuesday. “Yeah, we did that a little bit last year with him," Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs, "we kind of moved him around. He’s so smart and he’s got good size, he loves to play, so we moved him around last year a little bit doing that later in the season.” Cooper has not been cut despite what his...

Alex Smith says Chiefs first practice was "very, very different" from last year

Alex Smith says the Kansas City Chiefs are always changing and in a way he's right. The Chiefs offense will change. The personnel, however, doesn't seem to be changing around him as much as other teams which is a good thing. Alex was asked about this being his fourth year and how the Chiefs offense changes as the team's personnel changes. "For sure, especially with Coach Reid, nothing's chiseled in rock," Alex said via quotes from the Chiefs. "We are constantly changing and constantly trying to get better. He grinds over using the talent we have and how can we make it better and put guys in...

Broncos OTA's: Quarterback Paxton Lynch is off to a "good start"

Hopefully the first of many good practices for Lynch. The 2016 Denver Broncos took the field on Tuesday to participate in their first OTA practice of the spring. This meant coaches and teammates would get their first look at first-round quarterback Paxton Lynch in drills. Yes things were vanilla, and they were wearing shorts, but he had a good first practice.

Chiefs injury report: Phillip Gaines back at it while Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali sit out

Who was and wasn't present for the start of Chiefs OTAs ... Eric Berry was not present for the start of the Kansas City Chiefs OTAs on Tuesday. I saw a picture of Berry supposedly at an event in Kansas City this week so it had me wondering if something about to go down. Alas, Berry was not in attendance for the first day of OTAs as he and the Chiefs continue to figure out his contract. Berry has not signed his franchise tender. It's nothing to be concerned about at this point as the two sides have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal or else Berry will play out the season under his...

Mark Davis's suggestion that move to Las Vegas would "unite the Raider Nation" is utter nonsense

Today Mark Davis was at the league owners meetings in Charlotte North Carolina Tuesday and he stopped to speak with the media where he made one of the more 'WTF' statements that has been uttered in the entire conversation surrounding the Raiders attempts to find a new stadium, which are currently focused on trying to gain support and financing for a potential move to Las Vegas. "It has the potential to be a really exciting market. It's a new market. It's got the potential to be a really exciting market.

Mario Edwards Jr leaves Raiders OTA practice early, several others absent

Raiders second year defensive end may have had a setback in his return from his neck injury as he was unable to finish the team's first OTA practice. Earlier this month, Mario Edwards said he was fully cleared to return to practice for the Raiders. He was on the field for the start of OTA practice, but left following the warmup period and didn't return. Edwards had missed the final three games of last season with a neck injury and his status to return had been uncertain for a good portion of the offseason. It's possible Edwards suffered a setback, though it's unknown whether his departure...

San Diego Chargers have one of the least athletic offensive lines in the NFL

The Chargers o-line projects in the bottom seven according to Kent Platte. Last year, the San Diego Chargers had one of the most injured and least effective offensive lines in football. This offseason, the Chargers addressed that line by re-signing right tackle Joe Barksdale and adding Matt Slauson via free agency after the Chicago Bears released him from his contract. Many people are actually rather optimistic about the chances of the offensive line bouncing back with a much stronger season than last year's, but at this point in time, all we have to go on is projection and conjecture....

San Diego Chargers Roster Review: Denzel Perryman looks to build off his remarkable rookie year

Kyle Posey examines the fantastic rookie campaign of inside linebacker Denzel Perryman. When you have a physical presence in the middle of your defense it affects everything. It exudes a certain level of energy off onto the rest of the players. They see you and they want to make plays. They get hyped for you. They play with a certain passion. I see this every day at the high school level. I see this routinely at the college level. Last year, I saw it with the Chargers defense when Denzel Perryman was inserted into the starting lineup. Today we'll continue covering members along the front 7...

Chiefs say Tyler Bray is the No. 2 quarterback right now

The Kansas City Chiefs don't have to put out a depth chart until training camp but if they were putting one out now we know who would be the No. 2 quarterback. That would be Tyler Bray, according to Chiefs coach Andy Reid. Coach Reid said Tyler Bray is the No. 2 QB right now.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) May 24, 2016 Yes, Bray is still on the roster. I don't say that to laugh at his expense but to remind you because Bray has been on IR each of the past two seasons. He has great physical talent with his size and arm strength but honestly we have no idea if he's a good player. We just...

Chiefs new WR Mitch Mathews is very long

Mitch Mathews is an undrafted free agent receiver out of Andy Reid's favorite school, BYU. He is listed at 6'6 which is very tall and judging by this picture from the KC Star he is also very long. #Chiefs rookie WR Mitch Matthews (BYU) made a lunging one-handed catch during drills Tuesday at team OTA’s. @KCStar pic.twitter.com/gmcVO1qSeW — David Eulitt (@davidphotokc) May 24, 2016 When I think of an Andy Reid receiver, I think of someone maybe a little shorter and very fast and quick. Someone like Jeremy Maclin. Mathews is not in that mold but his size can be a benefit for the...

Legitimate Questions About the San Diego Chargers' Stadium Plan

Scott Sherman, current City Councilman for San Diego’s 7th district, just put out a paper questioning important parts of the Chargers’ downtown stadium plan. Do his questions hold water? The answer is yes. But before we get there, I want to point out that this is one of the better items I've seen published in regards to the Chargers' stadium plan, and really the only attempt I've seen from a politician which asks serious questions about the project without resorting to populist blather about the proper uses for tax increases and projections regarding the General Fund which rely on an...

Raiders waive Andre Debose, add two wide receivers

For the second straight offseason, Andre Debose is has been waived as injured. It was almost exactly a year ago a seventh round rookie that Debose tore his Achilles and was waived/injured. It happened in the team's first OTA practices. He is headed there once again before the team even starts OTA's. He was drafted to be the team's return specialist and the team was hoping to get him back into that role this season, but it would appear they will once again have to look elsewhere to fill that role. Also waived was quarterback Garrett Gilbert. In corresponding moves, the team added two...

Rival Report 5/24: Annie Apple, NFL player's mom and newest hire from ESPN

It is pretty safe to call this a one of a kind story, because I definitely don't remember anything close to this happening ever before. The Giants selected cornerback Eli Apple in the first round of the 2016 draft, but it is his mom Annie Apple that became a star afterwards. From refusing to let her "unemployed, college dropout" son wear a borrowed rolex to the draft to calling out false reports of Eli Apple not being able to cook for himself by mic dropping that his dad was a 5 star chef so show some "Respek", Annie Apple captured our attention and our hearts with her draft experience...
