Let's look at what Demarcus Robinson can bring to the Chiefs

The short answer: YAC, YAC and more YAC It was a common thought that the Kansas City Chiefs needed help at the wide receiver position heading into the draft. There were rumors about potential interest in a couple of the top WRs that went in round one but by the end of the third round, many were saying, maybe the Chiefs just don't see WR as a need. Enter Demarcus Robinson, with the Chiefs last of three fourth round picks. Most NFL draft experts believe that Robinson was an early-round talent on the field with great hands and run-after-the-catch ability. After watching all available games...

When you're paint balling and suddenly the Chiefs offense shows up

An Arrowhead Pride reader tweeted earlier that his little brother was paint balling in Kansas City when suddenly the Chiefs offense showed up to play. Well, my little brother went paintballing against the Chiefs Offense. Good to know the team is having bonding time.@ArrowheadPride — Weston Brown (@westonbrown111) May 22, 2016 That sounded like a pretty cool experience so I asked for the story. Here's what he said: "We were playing a game of paintball at Jaegers, when all of a sudden I recognized Alex Smith, soon to be followed by Chris Conley, Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce, and Jamaal...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs news 5/28

Today's KC Chiefs news... Chiefs meet with domestic-violence groups, outline approach for awareness training | The Kansas City Star This week, Chiefs executives met with representatives from six Kansas City-area domestic-violence advocacy groups, ostensibly in hopes of stepping up dialogue about domestic-violence awareness. "The Chiefs have met with a coalition of six metropolitan agencies, including Hope House, Joyce Williams Center, NewHouse, Rose Brooks, SafeHome and Synergy Services," said Jenn Nussbeck, chief development officer for Hope House, "to discuss how we can all work together...

This is the Chiefs first team offensive line right now but it will be changing

The Kansas City Chiefs have posted some pictures of OTAs and in those pictures that include the offensive line I see them lining up like this: LT Eric Fisher, LG Zach Fulton, C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and RT Mitch Schwartz (indeed, beat writers have said the same). If you told me that was the most likely Chiefs offensive line, I would believe you. However, Andy Reid says the Chiefs will be mixing it up as they go along. "Next week we'll move people," Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs, "we'll start doing that. For these three days, we felt pretty good about what we had...

Chiefs’ Jeremy Maclin leaves practice because of minor ankle injury | The Kansas City Star Chiefs receiver Jeremy Maclin left practice early on Thursday because of what Chiefs coach Andy Reid called a minor ankle injury. "He just tweaked his ankle a little bit," Reid said of Maclin, who walked off under his own power shortly before the practice ended. "He’s OK. No problem." It is unclear which ankle Maclin tweaked. Changes coming soon to Kansas City Chiefs' offensive line | ESPN Changes are coming to the offensive line next week, however, when the Chiefs get back to practice. ...

Early report on Chiefs' Chris Jones: long, lively and energetic

The way-too-early report on the Kansas City Chiefs top draft pick, Chris Jones, has been good. His fellow defensive lineman Dontari Poe said that the "young guys" still have some stuff to learn but on Jones specifically he said, "so far, so good." Jones and Poe both play on the line but they're different players. Poe pointed out his long arms. "He's a long kid," Poe said of Jones and his 34 1/2" arms. "And with him being long, he can use his arms, so that's just an advantage for him. He's pretty quick. He's picking up on stuff really well, too. Like I said, it's a little different when the...

Tyreek Hill showing off his track speed at Chiefs OTAs

Offseason practices are a time when receivers can really shine because even without pads they're still out there running and catching. I'm talking about guys like Dexter McCluster, De'Anthony Thomas and now Tyreek Hill - smaller, shiftier guys - that can show off their speed. The early report on Tyreek Hill is that he's doing just that. "He has track speed, definitely," said Jeremy Maclin, who isn't exactly slow himself. "The one thing about this league, everybody’s fast. It’s about getting the other things down, learning how to play the position in the NFL. As far as with the ball in...

Knile Davis says he didn't ask the Chiefs to trade him

Good story from ESPN's Adam Teicher on Knile Davis's future with the Kansas City Chiefs. I cringed in the first few paragraphs when Knile was talking about playing so well in the Patriots game ... until the fumble. That fumble was one of those moments where, fan of the team or not, I felt so bad for Knile because everything he had worked for came crashing down. Moving forward, there is another big question about Knile: Will he make the team? There were multiple reports before the draft that he had asked the Chiefs for a trade and the Chiefs were indeed trying to trade him. However,...

Chiefs' Dontari Poe on taking yoga: 'I'm always the biggest guy in the room'

Dontari Poe was training in Phoenix this offseason when his trainer suggested he start taking yoga. Poe had back surgery last offseason so yoga was a way to help with his flexibility. Poe told KC area reporters on Wednesday that he was willing to try anything and that it wasn't that tough of a sell for him. "Just the first five weeks after the season, I did no workouts, I did nothing but chiropractor stretching, yoga -€” as funny as that may sound, it worked." When I think of yoga, I think of smaller, flexible folks ... not 350-pound NFL nose tackles. Can you imagine Poe lining up next...

Why is KeiVarae Russell the Chiefs only unsigned draft pick?

The Kansas City Chiefs quickly signed eight of the nine players in the 2016 draft class, which leaves just one player unsigned: third round pick CB KeiVarae Russell. Seems odd that a third round pick would be the lone unsigned pick from your draft class. So, what's going on here? A theory on why a third round pick is unsigned comes from ESPN's Mike Reiss who pointed this out: One NFL salary cap man relayed that third-round negotiations have proven to be more challenging than other rounds in recent years. The reason is that first- and second-round picks can receive a maximum of 25 percent...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 5/26

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy. Wrapping Up Day Two of Chiefs OTAs from Chiefs.com On Tuesday, the team had to practice indoors because of inclement weather, but that wasn't the case on Wednesday as Mother Nature cooperated long enough for the 84 players practicing to get out on the field and run around a little bit. There was some light rain that came down during the last 30 minutes, but it didn't stop or deter any part of the practice.

Michael Crabtree doesn't want to talk about Marcus Peters, the 65th best player in the NFL

The least surprising news of the day is that Kansas City Chiefs CB Marcus Peters is on the NFL's top 100 players list. He came in at No. 65. NFL Films put together an awesome series of clips of Peters interceptions last season, along with their music that makes it so much better. Go watch it. A few reactions... First, is there a budding rivalry between Peters and Michael Crabtree? "I don't really wanna talk about Marcus Peters," Crabtree said on NFL Network when asked about Peters. Then they showed Peters on the sidelines in what looked like a game against Crabtree and the Raiders last...

Steven Nelson's role in Chiefs secondary a key question this offseason

2015 third round pick Steven Nelson projected as a slot corner for the Kansas City Chiefs but didn't play much as a rookie. Both Nelson and the Chiefs hope that changes in 2016. Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked Tuesday about Nelson, who played both inside and outside cornerback at Tuesday's practice (emphasis mine). “Yeah, he played both inside and outside today," Reid said via quotes from the Chiefs, "but he made some plays in the inside with the first group there. He really started picking up towards the end of last year. I thought he kind of took off the last quarter of the season....

Attack ad puts Missouri politician in Broncos colors

We don't really have a firm no-politics rule around here but if we did we would hit pause on that for this post because this one is too good to pass up. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is running for Governor of Missouri. A group who does not want him elected - Democrats, Republicans, whatever, they're all the same - has put out an attack ad that paints him as ... A BRONCOS FAN!!! LOL. Regardless of your political leaning, your Chiefs fandom should be able to appreciate this. Note the colors used in this ad below. Apparently there's a video of this floating around which I haven't...

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...

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...

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...
