These Kansas City Chiefs players have a lot on the line in training camp

Training camp is important for all Kansas City Chiefs players, but especially the ones I have listed below. Here’s why... Contract years for Eric Berry, Dontari Poe Both in contract years. Berry is asking for a lot of money so to firm that negotiating standpoint he will need another big Pro Bowl-caliber season. Poe, meanwhile, knows that to get a good contract you have to play well. And he could get a very good contract. One rookie to crack the starting lineup This could be the only rookie to win a starting job. The Chiefs started out this offseason with Zach Fulton at left guard and then...

Falcons cut Devin Hester as Chiefs prepare for camp with their own Devin Hester

The Atlanta Falcons have cut WR Devin Hester, which highlights how incredible it is he’s stayed in the NFL this long without a true position. Hester is notable because earlier this year Kansas City Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub, who coached Hester in Chicago, said that the Chiefs fifth round pick, Tyreek Hill, reminds him of Devin Hester. “When you evaluate players, you always compare them to other people,” Toub said at OTAs earlier this summer. “He is a dynamic returner, you can see that clearly on tape. His speed, and I probably said a couple things, he’s Devin...

The best (worst?) jokes from this roast of the Kansas City Chiefs

Users of reddit are roasting each team in the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs time is here. You can go to reddit to read the Chiefs roast. I pulled out a few of the best / worst comments and put them below. You’ll see a lot of Andy Reid weight jokes as well as some depressing Super Bowl jokes at the expense of the Chiefs. Andy Reid had to make adjustments after moving on from Philadelphia. Once he was lost around Kansas City with a dead phone and stopped off at a gas station for directions. "How do I get back to 435?" he asked. The clerk replied, "well, diet and exercise is a start." The...

Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles is the fourth highest rated RB on Madden 17

Madden 17 has been releasing their ratings for the players in this year’s game. If you use the Kansas City Chiefs, you want to know where Jamaal Charles ranks because he’s probably central to your game plan (just me?). Jamaal is the fourth highest rated back in Madden 17 behind Le’Veon Bell, Adrian Peters and Doug Martin. Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell (94) Vikings’ Adrian Peterson (91) Bucs’ Doug Martin (90) Chiefs’ Jamaal Charles (89) Texans’ Lamar Miller (88) The name that surprises me here is Doug Martin. He isn’t the usual name at the top of this list but...

Can any of the Kansas City Chiefs rookies unseat Phillip Gaines?

One of the most important position battles comes at cornerback. We believe we have a leader but injuries and other things can change the outlook in training camp. Currently, Marcus Peters is a lock to play one side while Phillip Gaines is the current leader to play the other side. The Chiefs drafted three cornerbacks who could be involved in the competition, including KeiVarae Russell, Eric Murray and DJ White. The Chiefs also have old friend Marcus Cooper who saw time at cornerback and safety this offseason. The rest of the Chiefs cornerbacks are a group that will need to stand out and...

The best 2017 free agents include Chiefs’ Eric Berry, Dontari Poe

The Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Berry and Dontari Poe are scheduled to be free agents after the 2016 season. Whether they actually make it to free agency remains to be seen. Most Chiefs fans know that both will be free agents next year. We went over that when the franchise tag decision came down to Eric Berry and then the two sides failed to reach a deal. We really wanted the Chiefs to sign Berry so that hit would free up the franchise tag for Poe next season. However, that didn’t happen. That brings us to 2017. ESPN’s John Clayton looked at the top 25 free agents next season and...

Indianapolis Colts 2016 opponent preview: Getting to know the Kansas City Chiefs

In week eight of the 2016 NFL season, the Indianapolis Colts will host the Kansas City Chiefs. The game will take place on October 30 at 1:00 p.m., and it will be the first meeting between the two teams since Indy’s thrilling come-from-behind win in a wild card shootout in the 2013 playoffs. The Chiefs are coming off of a playoff appearance last season as a wild card team, as they concluded the regular season with ten consecutive wins and then shut out the Texans for a 30-0 victory in the first round of the postseason. Kansas City will be expected to contend for a playoff spot once again...

Chiefs training camp 2016: Rookies and QBs hit the road on Tuesday

The first batch of Kansas City Chiefs players will head to St. Joe for the start of training camp. Despite the first official practice not being until Saturday, the Chiefs rookies and quarterbacks are allowed to go up a few days earlier. They will arrive on Tuesday, July 26 and hold practices July 27-29 of this week before the first official practice on Saturday, July 30. There are 19 rookies and four quarterbacks on the roster. I’m not sure if there will be any other first or second year players there. The Chiefs haven’t released a list. There are a couple of things you hope to get...

The Kansas City Chiefs most overrated and underrated are on the defensive line

Last week we highlighted Pete Prisco of CBS Sports’ pick for the Kansas City Chiefs most overrated player. He chose Dontari Poe. I can see why he chose that but I don’t agree that he is overrated. The Chiefs defensive line was recently ranked 12th in the league, which is too low. The whole group is apparently underrated. If you could guess the Chiefs most overrated player, there’s a good shot you could guess the most underrated, too. The most underrated is Jaye Howard, according to Prisco. He is a power player who is coming off his best season, which is why the team re-signed him as...

Falcons schedule preview 2016: Hosting the Chiefs in Week 13

This is one of the easier matchups on the schedule for the Falcons, and oh no, that doesn’t seem right. The schedule is so brutal (again, and always, on paper) for these Falcons in 2016 that a home game against a very tough Kansas City Chiefs team looks like one of the more winnable matchups they have all year. That is, uh, not optimal. The Chiefs fly under the radar a bit, which is something that happens when Alex Smith is your quarterback, but they have a strong ground game, improved receiving options, and an incredibly dangerous defense, so please don’t think I’m taking them...

A very pleasant Sunday-Funday to you all! I'm headed to do a little paddling on the lake (and hope I don't melt). Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy! Pre-Camp Reads: Looking at TE Travis Kelce from Chiefs.com Travis Kelce is becoming one of the most recognizable young superstars in the league, and it's fair to say over the course of the next year, all NFL fans will know all about the Kansas City Chiefs tight end. He's not afraid to be himself and that's obvious any time he finds the end zone. Kelce has put together back-to-back seasons of at least 65 receptions, 850 yards and 5...

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the globe. Enjoy! Pre-Camp Reads: Looking at CB Phillip Gaines from Chiefs.com On the last day of Chiefs minicamp, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about the defensive back picture, and he admitted that ultimately Gaines has the starting nod headed into St. Joseph. "Gaines, I think when it's all said and done, he'll probably be the guy at the corner spot," he said. "We'll see, Coop (Marcus Cooper) had some good snaps there and Nelson had some good snaps. We'll see, we'll see how it goes." Chiefs Community Caring Team...

Here are the odds that Jamaal Charles or Alex Smith will win the MVP

Bovada released the odds for the 2016 MVP winner and three Kansas City Chiefs players are listed. Jamaal Charles and Alex Smith are 100/1 odds while Jeremy Maclin is 300/1. The Chiefs would need to have a great season plus a crazy performance from one of those players to win it. Jamaal has been great over the past three years and there wasn’t any MVP talk for him. Alex Smith would need a winning streak like last year to begin to even think about being in the conversation. (Yes, this is where I start my Alex Smith MVP 2016 campaign) Here are all the odds: Aaron Rodgers: 4/1 Ben...

Dontari Poe says his back hasn’t felt this good in years, not focused on contract

Editor’s note: To thank Dontari Poe for talking with us, visit the Poe Man’s Dream Foundation and buy a backpack with school supplies for kids or donate to the foundation’s good efforts. It would be cool if our little community here could help out. Thanks all! The story of JJ Watt’s injury Thursday night was good timing. Dontari Poe had a herniated disc like Watt and it came at a similar time of the year. I spoke with Poe yesterday and asked him about coming back from that very injury. Like I said, good timing. Texans fans, you can read our coverage of Poe’s injury last year here....

Chiefs’ Alex Smith says he’s never had an easy schedule

Alex Smith is making the media rounds. The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback spoke to NFL Network nationally and KSHB locally. He had some good answers on KSHB so I transcribed a few of those below. On the Chiefs schedule “This is my 12th year and I’ve yet to have an easy schedule. This is the National Football League. There are no weeks off. You never know when you catch teams in their individual journey, when they’re healthy, when they’re playing good.” As a fan, I can’t help but look at the schedule and predict how it will go but Alex is absolutely right here. Take JJ Watt for...

Le’Veon Bell suspension would be big news for the Chiefs

It’s being reported by ESPN that Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy. Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell facing a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s drug policy, per @DanGrazianoESPN. It's over missed test.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 22, 2016 And when do the Chiefs play the Steelers? You got it: Week 4. No one - especially fantasy football players - wants to see Bell suspended but this would be a major blow for the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger is still the key to the Steelers success and the...
