Travis Kelce fined not once but twice against the Steelers

Travis Kelce fined not once but twice against the Steelers

There's a cost to telling an NFL referee his call was horse shit and he couldn't work at a foot locker. That cost is $12,500, Chiefs TE Travis Kelce learned. #Chiefs TE Travis Kelce has been fined $12,500 for his postgame comments, a source confirms. Also fined $9,115 for unnecessary roughness.— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) January 21, 2017 The other fine came from when he was flagged for unnecessary roughness for pushing a Steelers player to the ground after the whistle. It's hard to defend either one of the transgressions. The push was out of line and hurt the team in a big...

Chargers Sign Two Receivers to Reserve/Future Contracts

Chargers Sign Two Receivers to Reserve/Future Contracts

It’s that time of year again and we have incredibly minor transactions to announce. Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Chargers signed wide receivers Jamaal Jones and Da’Ron Brown to reserve/future contracts. Jones was signed last year by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent but was placed on the reserve-injured list after he was injured near the beginning of training camp. He was eventually waived in August. A productive college player out of Montana, the 6’1”, 189-pound Jones went undrafted in spite of holding career receiving records and garnering second-team All-American...

Top 5 Raiders 2017 team draft, free agency need positions

The most pressing needs for the Raiders to address in free agency and the draft. As we continue head first into the offseason, the focus for the Raiders will be to build upon their 12-4 season that fell short in the playoffs. It fell short due to the loss of Derek Carr to a broken fibula. At which point other weak areas were exposed. Here are those needs in order of importance: 1. Defensive Tackle There is nothing this team needs more than a big bodied monster on their interior defensive line. Someone who can shed blocks to stop the run and provide something in the way of an interior pass...

East West Shrine Game 2017: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, rosters, more

The first of College Football’s major All Star games is coming up this weekend with the 92nd annual East West Shrine Game. The Raiders have grabbed a few players out of the Shrine game in recent years. Most recently selecting linebacker Cory James out of Colorado in the sixth round and signing James Cowser as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Utah. Prospects can do a lot to raise their stock by their performance in the East West Shrine game. It also helps that, unlike the Senior Bowl, underclassmen can play in the game.

Chiefs’ John Dorsey is ‘best bet’ to be Packers GM (eventually)

Chiefs’ John Dorsey is ‘best bet’ to be Packers GM (eventually)

There’s a report out of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that has a few nuggets of interest for Kansas City Chiefs fans. First, it was reported that Chiefs GM John Dorsey’s contract was set to run out this year. That’s wrong, according to this report. Dorsey is under contract through the 2018 draft and so is Packers GM Ted Thompson. Second, Bob McGinn - one of the top beat writers in the country - reports that Dorsey is the “best bet” to be the Packers next GM. If he’s under contract this year then I guess this would be referring to next year. I know Dorsey called Kansas City a...

This from Colin Cowherd ... is he suggesting the Kansas City Chiefs trade Eric Berry, Dontari Poe and Travis Kelce for Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo?

Kansas City Chiefs have added 10 more players this offseason

The Kansas City Chiefs have added 10 players over the past week. I saw eight of them come on Tuesday’s transactions report from the league and two of them a couple weeks ago (that’s what I get for not checking that every day). These are reserve / future contracts. Think of them as offseason contracts, more or less. These are the bottom of the roster guys who will compete for a spot this offseason. You’ll recognize a couple of the names like Jordan Devey and David King who spent time on the active roster this year. Others like Seantavious Jones were in training camp last year. OT...

The Denver Broncos have assembled the A-Team

Nick Ferguson joined the Afternoon Drive to discuss the Denver Broncos new coaching staff.  Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of the Afternoon Drive had an interesting comparison to make for the Broncos new coaching staff. They took it back to the 80s, and started assembling the “A-Team.” Apparently, John Elway is Hannibal, and his plan is coming together. If you didn’t see Elway light up a cigar and utter those famous words, you are probably too young for the reference. However, it is easy to see that Elway went into the search for a new coaching staff with a clear objective. Vance...

Today, the Raiders made their relocation filing official with the NFL. It was the expected next step in the process. The next will come on March 26 when the owners vote on whether to approve his bid. The next important date, however, will be February 15. That’s the deadline for the City of Oakland to put their best foot forward on their plans to try and keep the team from leaving.

Reggie McKenzie: Paying “high dollar” players Derek Carr, Khalil Mack not an issue “We’ll work around it”

Before the Raiders get into considering what they would like to do in this year’s free agent market, they have their own free agents to think about. They have quite a few who are set to hit the market, though few who present a dire need to bring back. With the team figuring to have around $50 million prior to any cuts they make, which should be plenty to allow the team to extend the players they would like to extend. Topping that list are fellow 2014 draft classmates, Khalil Mack and Derek Carr — not necessarily in that order. McKenzie spoke with local media over conference call...
