Four tight ends an option for the Kansas City Chiefs?

The Kansas City Chiefs are strong at a number of positions where they could keep more than the usual amount of players for that position. For example, they have four quarterbacks they like even though teams usually keep just three. Many teams keep six receivers but I can count at least seven receivers that I want to see more of. The same goes for tight end. Before the last round of OTAs, I figured there were four tight ends competing for three spots. Now after reading some offseason reports, I wonder if all five Chiefs tight ends have a legit shot at making the 53-man roster. The Chiefs...

Predicting surprise cuts from the Chiefs offense that surely won't happen

As the Chiefs prepare to enter into training camp and pare down their roster to the top 53 players, there are going to be cuts aplenty. Among those players will be a number of surprises. We thought we'd try to thread the needle with plausible surprise cuts — forgoing obvious fringe players on the bubble while also keeping things realistic. For this first part, let's take a tour of the offense. Quarterback - Kevin Hogan Two reasons here. First of all, your likely response is, "But the Chiefs just drafted him." On a team this deep, not even a very recent draftee in the fifth round is...

The last time the Chiefs and every other team finished in last place in the division

When was the last time the Kansas City Chiefs were in last place in the AFC West? The disastrous 2012 season where they won just two games. Since then, the Chifes have finished in second place in the AFC West in each year of the Andy Reid era. A Reddit user went through and found the last time each team ended up in last place in their division. As you would expect, most of the last place finishes have come in the past 5-6 years because the league has so much parity. Then there are the outliers. You could argue the Steelers, Seahawks and Patriots are the best-run franchises in the NFL...

What anonymous scouts said about Chiefs QB Kevin Hogan before the draft

We talked about what anonymous scouts said about Chris Jones and Demarcus Robinson before the NFL Draft. Now let's go back to Bob McGinn's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel pre-draft series and look at what anonymous scouts said about Chiefs fifth round pick QB Kevin Hogan. Posted a 36-10 record, winning three Pacific-12 Conference titles and starting in three Rose Bowls. "He's more ready than Brissett is," one scout said. Brissett was a third round pick by the Patriots. Interesting comparison there. "He is accurate. He does pretty much everything well. He has a funny release. Doesn't Philip...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 6/24

Happy Friday!!! Here's some Kansas City Chiefs news to get you through the final part of the week. Enjoy. Chiefs Safety Eric Berry Wins Prestigious George Halas Award from Chiefs.com Here's an explanation of what the award means, per the PFWA website: "The Halas Award is given to a NFL player, coach or staff member who overcomes the most adversity to succeed. The award is named for Halas, a charter member (1963) of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, who was associated with the Chicago Bears and NFL from their inception in 1920 until his death in 1983 as an owner, manager, player and promoter....

The Chiefs 2003 comeback over the Packers was so insane

Remember the Kansas City Chiefs 2003 comeback over the Green Bay Packers? It came during the Chiefs ridiculous stretch of wins to start the 2003 season (9-0) and it was one of the nuttiest wins of that stretch. The Chiefs were down 31-14 in the fourth quarter. The craziest part? This came at Lambeau Field. The Chiefs got on the board with a Priest Holmes touchdown early in the fourth quarter to make it 31-21. Chiefs safety Jerome Woods then took a tipped Brett Favre pass back to the house to make it 31-28. The Chiefs added another field goal to tie it up at 31. The two teams exchanged...

Pro Bowler says only 1% of OTs are equipped to handle Justin Houston

Justin Houston becomes the ninth Kansas City Chiefs player to land on the top 100 players list. He comes in at No. 26 for his fourth career appearance. He was No. 27 last year. Several NFL players are featured in this segment but Trent Williams had the best reaction. “Justin Houston, those type of guys you see and they do some things that just can’t be stopped and maybe only one percent of the tackles in the league is equipped to handle their best efforts,” Washington OT Trent Williams said. Tamba showed a screen pass where Houston read it perfectly and stepped back to pick it off...

Former Chiefs TE Richard Gordon is in trouble

You remember the name Richard Gordon right? He was a journeyman tight end who made appearances with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 and 2014. The third tight end hardly ever gets noticed so it’s understandable if it doesn’t ring a bell. Gordon was arrested after a police report says they were called to the scene because of a man spotted hitting a woman outside of a car. When officers arrived they found Gordon's girlfriend, who said she lives with him and has a 3-year-old child with him, the report said. The woman said Gordon started acting crazy and flipped out while she was driving...

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the globe (well, the USA and Brazil anyway). Apreciar! Chiefs LB Justin Houston Makes "NFL Top 100" List Once Again from Chiefs.com It shouldn't surprise anyone who follows this team that the Chiefs have more players than any other team on this list as they are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, and that's only further proven by these rankings. The ninth and final Chiefs player to be named to the list also shouldn't come as any surprise as he has proven to be one of the elite defensive players in the NFL over the...

That time a Chiefs fan threw chili cheese nachos on Sebastian Janikowski

Don Banks of SI.com has a really neat profile of Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who is one of the most unique players in the league and also has one of the best nicknames - Seabass - even for a Raider. There is one story in the profile that we need to pass along. It’s the “chili cheese nacho” story that Banks relays through Raiders punter Shane Lechler. “We’re warming up on the sideline, and in Kansas City the stands are like right on top of the visiting sideline, and there’s really no room to warm up,” Lechler says. “All of a sudden this big dude throws like a...

Fantasy alert: Chiefs’ Spencer Ware catching a bunch of passes this offseason

I’m really excited about Kansas City Chiefs RB Spencer Ware this year. Not only because of plays like this... ... But also because he’s apparently seeing plenty of work this offseason, including catching passes. Fantasy alert! Ware and RB Charcandrick West got matching contract extensions after last season. Along with the return of RB Jamaal Charles, there’s been plenty of talk about how these three are going to work together. Jamaal is clearly the leader but after him will it be more Ware or more West? The KC Star’s Terez Paylor suggests it could be Ware. I think...

Mike Florio beats JJ Watt nearly as bad as Eric Fisher did

Around here we know JJ Watt as the guy that nearly retired after Eric Fisher booted him and his team into oblivion. It was a big moment for Kansas City Chiefs fans because Fisher has been slowly developing as the former top pick and we're starting to see him turn into a better player. It's all fun and games from our standpoint. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk isn't always the most popular guy but a recent exchange he had with JJ Watt is going to make Florio more popular around here. Florio called out Watt's "I don't want attention but everyone look at me" routine that he does. Let's recap...

That time Chiefs’ Allen Bailey impressed Adrian Peterson with his strength

Our old pal BJ Kissel has a good read over at Chiefs.com on Allen Bailey. You should go over and read that because there are some neat stats in there on how good the Chiefs defense was (and who doesn’t love reading about the Chiefs defense). BJ included in his story and old quote from Adrian Peterson that I didn’t remember. It’s from after the Chiefs-Vikings game last season. “I’ll tell you this, No. 97 (Bailey) grabbed me one time and swung me down,” Peterson said via Chiefs.com. “I was able to feel the force that he had. That guy is extremely strong, and I’m sure there...

Rival Report 6/21: Kansas City Chiefs planning on staking claim to St. Louis market

The St. Louis Rams are no more, and therefore the city has become a land without a team. The Kansas City Chiefs plan on remedying that by reminding the spurned Rams fans that they do still have another team in Missouri that they could route for. There are actually several different teams somewhat nearby that could benefit from the St. Louis Rams moving to Los Angeles. The Chicago Bears are 296.8 miles away, the Tennessee Titans are 309.5 miles away, the Colts are 242.6 miles away while the Chiefs are 247.7 miles away. Any one of those teams could conceivably try to woo the St. Louis tv...

Chiefs’ Eric Berry has ‘reasonable’ chance to become NFL’s highest paid safety

July 15 is the franchise tag deadline day. That’s the deadline for teams to reach long-term contract agreements with their franchise tagged players, which includes Eric Berry and the Kansas City Chiefs. Around here, we’ve been pretty optimistic that something will happen. Not only because Berry is a great player but also because the Chiefs have no cap space and a Berry deal would give them more. So I would guess that the Chiefs are planning on getting something done with him. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler recapped a SportsCenter segment in which some of these tagged players were discussed,...

Chiefs talk about plans for attracting fans in STL

The NFL recently sent a memo to all its teams that the St. Louis market is open for business now that the Rams have moved to Los Angeles. Chiefs president Mark Donovan explained on the Chiefs website what that memo said and what it means for the Chiefs, who plan to begin looking more at St. Louis. “The memo said that because the Rams are playing in Los Angeles, St. Louis is now an open television market,” Donovan said via Chiefs.com. “For preseason television, we basically put our own networks together. So a couple of teams, including us, have lobbied the league and said we’re going...

Of course this guy vaping the world's hottest chili is a Broncos fan

If I told you that a completely insane weirdo VAPED the world's hottest chili, what team would you guess he roots for? Why, it's the Denver Broncos! Check out his shirt in the video. I don't recommend watching the entire video above. It's kinda disgusting but this guy - wearing a Broncos shirt - vapes the world's hottest chili. Deadspin reports: The Carolina Reaper is widely regarded as the hottest pepper on Earth. It clocks in around 2.2 million Scoville units (for contrast, a jalapeño maxes out at a mere 20,000SHU.) As though three huge rips of spicy, spicy vape juice wasn't enough,...

What anonymous scouts said about Chiefs' Demarcus Robinson before the draft

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn runs an annual pre-draft series with comments on some of the top players from anonymous scouts. It usually gets a lot of attention because of the depth of the research from McGinn and these scouts but also because of the blunt honesty from the scouts. Previously we looked at what they said about Chris Jones. Today let's look at what some of these scouts told McGinn about Chiefs fourth round pick WR Demarcus Robinson. Third-year junior from Fort Valley, Ga., who has admitted to three failed drug tests and has undergone rehabilitation. "Father...
