Cutting Jeremy Maclin is an Awful Idea

Cutting Jeremy Maclin is an Awful Idea

So every now and then I hear a take that’s so scalding hot that I can’t help but comment on it immediately. In those situations, I rarely have time to write some kind of captivating (or even coherent) introduction. Today is one of those times, so I’ll just say it: Getting rid of Jeremy Maclin is a bad idea, and you should feel bad if that’s your idea. “But MN, he barely had more than 500 yards receiving this year!” Uh huh. “But MN, he’s not fast like he used to be! He’s a possession guy only now!” Hmmmm. “Seriously, MN, he’s just not dynamic!” Oh. Look... I don’t...

Another “This is how much Eric Berry means to the Chiefs” story

Another “This is how much Eric Berry means to the Chiefs” story

We’ve shared a few “This is how much Eric Berry means to the Chiefs” stories lately and here’s another one. James Palmer of NFL Network, who covered the Chiefs multiple times last season, was on this podcast and had some good insight on Berry’s impact on the team. It goes beyond the field... “I spent a lot of time with the Chiefs this season a lot of time in that locker room ... It’s really just, as he goes, that entire team goes. He tells them and runs that locker room more or less. ‘Today we’re taking care of this, today we’re going through this, tomorrow we’re doing...

The Chiefs type of cornerback is in this draft

The Chiefs type of cornerback is in this draft

This could be a draft that has the cornerbacks that the Kansas City Chiefs like. They tend to like the bigger corners (over 5’10) that are physical and can push receivers around. There are always exceptions but I look at Marcus Peters as a good example of the type of guy that they like. This quote from an NFL.com piece drew my attention to the cornerbacks in this draft. "I was blown away when I looked at our database and realized how many really big and long cornerbacks are out there in this draft. That's the trend though. We used to see those guys move to safety, but not anymore....

What can Chiefs expect out of Tamba Hali in 2017?

What can Chiefs expect out of Tamba Hali in 2017?

Tamba Hali’s contract makes it such that there are no discussions about whether or not he’ll be back with the Kansas City Chiefs at age 33. He’ll be back. It would cost the Chiefs more to cut Tamba than to keep him so they’re not going to cut him. We saw Tamba take a step back in his playing time this year. There are reasons for that such as the emergence of Dee Ford. It’s also that Tamba is, with all due respect, old. Not old in the real world but old in the NFL at age 33. He’s had knee surgeries the past couple of offseasons. He knows he’s coming up on the end even if he...

Arrowheadlines: Interest in Chiefs free agents, Eric Berry's shoes, trading Branden Albert

NFL free agency 2017: Does Dontari Poe make sense as a potential defensive line addition? | Niners Nation NFL Media analyst Elliott Harrison broke down some potential free agency fits for some notable players. Among the players he looked at was Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Dontari Poe. He is listed as a nose tackle, but he played in most of the Chiefs defensive alignments, finishing the season playing 73.4 percent of defensive snaps.

Tony Romo expecting a release, not a trade, per ESPN report

Tony Romo expecting a release, not a trade, per ESPN report

Yeah, yeah, the Chiefs are not likely in the Tony Romo sweepstakes but he’s the most interesting free agent this year so we’ll keep an eye on him. The latest comes from ESPN’s Ed Werder who reports that Romo is expecting to be released and not traded. Source says Tony Romo expecting release, not trade, and believes he can start as #NFL QB 2-3 more seasons despite turning 37, injury history— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) February 16, 2017 I don’t know if this is the Cowboys trying to do right by Romo to go where he wants or whether the market isn’t as big as folks have...

Branden Albert will reportedly hit free agency again 3 years after he left Chiefs

Branden Albert will reportedly hit free agency again 3 years after he left Chiefs

Branden Albert will become a free agent again under very different circumstances. The Miami Dolphins plan to cut Albert, according a report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. Dolphins will be releasing LT Branden Albert today, source says. It's Tunsil time there. Adds an intriguing option to the tackle market.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) February 16, 2017 It feels longer than three years ago that Albert was a Chief. Andy Reid came to town and many folks expected them to trade Albert. That trade never went through, he stayed in Kansas City for a year under the franchise tag and...

Is Tyler Bray ready to be the Chiefs No. 2?

Is Tyler Bray ready to be the Chiefs No. 2?

You saw the news this week that the Kansas City Chiefs are likely to pass on Nick Foles’ option making him a free agent in March. That would mean behind Alex Smith the Chiefs have only Tyler Bray and Joel Stave heading into 2017. Stave was a late add to the practice squad so they really only have Bray as a viable option to back up Alex Smith next season. Is Bray ready to be the No. 2? The answer that I have and that everyone should have: I have no idea. Bray has been in the system for four years so I feel better about his chances than Stave but we still have no idea what Bray brings. He...

Where the Kansas City Chiefs can save salary cap space to prepare for free agency

Where the Kansas City Chiefs can save salary cap space to prepare for free agency

Let’s take a look at some of the ways the Kansas City Chiefs can save some money - cap casualties. These are (mostly) veteran players who could save some money if cut. However, many of them leave dead money which is money that counts against the cap for a player no longer on the team. So you have to weigh that against the savings. I used the numbers from Over The Cap. Saves a lot of money QB Nick Foles: Saves $6.75 million ... I’d like to know where that $10.75 million number came from earlier. RB Jamaal Charles: Saves $6.1 million. Makes you think DL Jaye Howard: He would save $3.8...

Check out their 2017 free agents: Kansas City Chiefs seem doomed to lose a star player

Check out their 2017 free agents: Kansas City Chiefs seem doomed to lose a star player

For the last four years under Andy Reid, it seems like the Kansas City Chiefs have constantly been on the edge of being a Super Bowl contender. Not on the edge of being a Super Bowl champion mind you, but they have yet to look like a team that could realistically contend to win it all; there were many times in the last four years that I thought the Chiefs would actually win the Super Bowl, even though they were quite good, and much better than they were before Reid arrived. Is 2017 going to be the year that Kansas City breaks through to the AFC Championship game and inserts themselves into...

Kansas City Chiefs once again rank as one of the best special teams units

Kansas City Chiefs once again rank as one of the best special teams units

The Dave Toub effect is what I’m thinking about this morning as I read Rick Gosselin’s annual special teams ranking. The Dallas Morning News reporter ranks each special teams unit in the league in 22 categories and tallies up the scores. The Chiefs rank third in the NFL in special teams under his scoring system. That sounds about right as we all knew the Chiefs were one of the best special teams units in the NFL. This was a good note on the Chiefs special teams impact: Kansas City was the best example of the impact of the kicking game on a team's standing. The Chiefs finished 20th in...

Add Josh Mauga to list of Kansas City Chiefs 2017 free agents

Add Josh Mauga to list of Kansas City Chiefs 2017 free agents

Here’s something I’m just learning today: Josh Mauga is a free agent. He wasn’t in our list of the Kansas City Chiefs 2017 free agents. He had reportedly signed a three-year deal in 2015 so we thought he had one more year under contract after missing all of last season with a hip injury. That is wrong. BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com put out the official list of Chiefs free agents and Mauga’s name is listed. So, yeah, that’s confirmed. He’s scheduled to be a free agent in March. None of the contract websites out there had Mauga listed as one of the Chiefs free agents so I didn’t...

Old friend alert: former Chief Eric Kush inks two year deal in Chicago

Old friend alert: former Chief Eric Kush inks two year deal in Chicago

Eric Kush was a funny guy and was often on Twitter interacting with fans so those of you will be happy to hear that he has a new deal in Chicago. #Bears announce they have signed OL Eric Kush to a 2-year contract. He was set to be an unrestricted free agent. Started 4 games in 2016.— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) February 15, 2017 Kush was a 2013 sixth round pick by the Chiefs. We thought at one point he could be the center of the future but the Chiefs cut him before the 2015 season with Mitch Morse ready to take the job. Kush has since been with the Buccaneers, Panthers, Texans, Rams and...

Chiefs franchise tag dance with Eric Berry can begin as soon as today

Chiefs franchise tag dance with Eric Berry can begin as soon as today

Today is the first day the Kansas City Chiefs are allowed to use the franchise tag. They have from today until March 1 to apply the tag to someone. For the Chiefs, our best guess is that will be Eric Berry - if they don’t reach a long-term contract. Even if the Chiefs do use the tag on Berry before March 1, it’s not over yet. The Chiefs would then have until July 15 to ink a long-term deal with Berry. If they don’t, it can only be that one-year franchise tender (or, technically, another one-year contract - but not a long-term one). We think the Chiefs will put the tag on Berry, who...

Report: Nick Foles’ option not expected to be picked up by Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have an option on Nick Foles for the 2017 season and it appears they are likely to pass on that option. That’s what many of us have been expecting.

Clark Hunt talks Eric Berry, Andy Reid contracts and Chiefs taking the next step

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt spoke to a reporter from the Star-Telegram in Dallas on Tuesday. Audio of their conversation is below which includes a bunch of soccer talk (FC Dallas) as well as a few Chiefs questions from reporter Mac Englel. I highlighted the Chiefs portion of the Q&A below. Note that on the Eric Berry section Clark says these negotiations often come down to deadlines. Free agency is in March but if the Chiefs use the franchise tag on Berry, the “real” deadline would be July 15, the final day to sign franchise tagged players to a long-term deal. The Eric Berry...

Mel Kiper’s second mock draft gives Kansas City Chiefs another receiver

Mel Kiper’s second mock draft gives Kansas City Chiefs another receiver

ESPN’s Mel Kiper is out with another 2017 NFL mock draft. Kiper gave the Kansas City Chiefs a receiver in his first mock draft posted back in January. He sticks with receiver this time but a different name. With the 27th pick, Kiper has the Chiefs taking 6’2, 202 pound East Carolina WR Zay Jones. To which you might say ... who? He’s only the NCAA’s leader for receptions in a career (399). It’s still early enough in the process that there are plenty of players we don’t know much about. Jones, however, has a football background. His father played on the Cowboys three Super Bowl...
