Chiefs: Alex Smith aided by stability

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — With minicamp over, the Chiefs are set to experience two major firsts when the team reports for training camp in late July. The upcoming season marks the first time in 12 years the Chiefs have the same coaching staff for a third straight year. “Continuity is a big thing,” coach Andy Reid said. “Dorse (general manager John Dorsey) has done a good job keeping players around here, too, so that helps. “But we all kind of know as a coaching staff where we’re going, what direction we’re going in and I think that’s important.” read more

Chiefs' Travis Kelce looking to take next step

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a breakout year in 2014, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce wants more. More of the ball, that is. And the Chiefs have been giving him his wish. During organized team activities, which wrapped up Thursday, Kelce often became quarterback Alex Smith’s first choice. Even with the addition of Jeremy Maclin, that’s not all that surprising — considering Kelce led the Chiefs with 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns last season. read more

Chiefs release WR Rogers ahead of mini camp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs released wide receiver Da’Rick Rogers and offensive lineman Kelvin Palmer and signed offensive lineman Tavon Rooks before the start of their mandatory minicamp Tuesday. Rogers, once a college standout for Tennessee, was kicked off the team for disciplinary issues and transferred to Tennessee Tech. But he’s been unable to make it in the NFL, catching just 14 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns while bouncing through three franchises. In May, Rogers spent one day in jail after pleading guilty in Indianapolis to drunken driving. read more

Chiefs preparing without Houston during mandatory minicamp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The videos Justin Houston has been posting on social media of his workouts this offseason, and the absurd amount of weights he’s been lifting, should help set Chiefs coach Andy Reid at ease. Especially considering Reid probably won’t see Houston until at least training camp. The All-Pro linebacker has skipped the entirety of Kansas City’s offseason program after getting the franchise tag, a power play to spur along negotiations on a long-term deal. read more

Chiefs wrap up OTAs, head to minicamp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andy Reid wrapped up his third organized team activities Friday since becoming the Chiefs head coach in 2013. Each year has built on the previous, especially during the first year when players went through a familiarization process of what Reid and the coaching staff expected on offense, defense and special teams. Reid, one of the winningest coaches in the NFL while in Philadelphia, has high standards. The past three weeks of OTAs left him with a positive vibe of the team’s progress despite the Midwest spring humidity. read more

Jeremy Maclin leads new-look Chiefs wide receiver corps

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When David Culley first got to know Jeremy Maclin, the young wide receiver was just another rookie fresh out of Missouri trying to learn his way in the pressure-cooker NFL. When they reunited this past offseason, everything had changed. For one thing, Culley is the wide receivers coach in Kansas City these days. And Maclin is a veteran who made such a strong impression on Culley and coach Andy Reid during their days in Philadelphia that they snapped him up as a free agent this past offseason. read more

Chiefs hoping De'Anthony Thomas catches on quick at wide receiver

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As strange as it sounds, De’Anthony Thomas is still getting used to being on the edge. The speedster burned defenses in college and did the same on occasion last year as a rookie with the Kansas City Chiefs. Though he was listed as a running back, Thomas mostly lined up in the slot. The majority of his catches came on quick throws and screens. read more

Chiefs corner Sean Smith focused on getting more interceptions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — More known for his size than speed, Sean Smith isn’t going to win too many races. So the 6-foot-3, 218-pound Kansas City cornerback uses his body to slow down opposing receivers at the line of scrimmage and to position himself in coverage. As the Chiefs’ top corner, Smith has found himself going up against burners Jeremy Maclin and De’Anthony Thomas during organized team activities, and he’s held his own. Smith intercepted a pass in Tuesday’s session and was all smiles. The veteran cornerback, however, said there is still plenty of room to get better. read more
