Chiefs release safety Jimmy Wilson

The Kansas City Chiefs announced the release of safety Jimmy Wilson just over one month after signing him to a one-year contract. We have released safety Jimmy Wilson and have waived LB Cameron Gordon. — Kansas City Chiefs (@Chiefs) May 3, 2016 Wilson, who turns 30-years-old in July, originally entered the NFL as a 7th round selection by the Miami Dolphins in the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent four years in Miami, starting 21 total games in that span, before being allowed to walk in free agency. The San Diego Chargers signed him to a two-year deal last offseason but cut him last...

More insight into Chiefs vetting of Tyreek Hill coming to light

The Kansas City Chiefs wouldn't tell us what their vetting process was with Tyreek Hill but as the days go by more information is coming out on their process. The first one comes from Herbie Teope of ChiefsDigest.com who reports that the Chiefs contacted the district attorney in Hill's domestic violence case. "Unlike some other athletes, he took complete responsibility," the DA told Herbie. "He didn’t blame the victim. He said, ‘I did it, I need help.’" Read Herbie's full story here with more detail on the steps the Chiefs took. The KC Star's Terez Paylor spoke with West Alabama's...

Chiefs post-draft roster shuffle begins with release of LB Cameron Gordon

The Kansas City Chiefs roster massaging has begun. The team has cut LB Cameron Gordon, according to his agent who tweeted this out on Tuesday morning: The Kansas City Chiefs just released veteran LB Cameron Gordon. Was signed by them at the start of the offseason. — Brett Tessler (@TesslerSports) May 3, 2016 The Chiefs are in the process of adding nine draft picks and a number of undrafted free agents as rookie minicamp looms. The Chiefs had the most players already on their roster in the entire league before the draft (79) so we knew there would be some movement after the draft picks...

Chiefs rookie minicamp invite is called toughest player in college football, and here's why

The Kansas City Chiefs have invited a Kent State player to their rookie minicamp this weekend. That player, Nate Terhune, was once called the toughest player in college football. Why? Because HE CAME BACK FROM A BROKEN LEG IN A MONTH. But wait! There's more! Read this, all of it: Terhune broke his left leg near the ankle in a Sept. 14 loss at LSU. Exactly four weeks later, following a quick rehab after surgery to implant a metal plate and some pins, he played at Ball State (Oct. 12). He didn't partake of painkillers during his rehab: "If I took them, they told me I wouldn't be able to lift...

Chiefs UDFA signing would've had top vertical at the Combine

We've noticed lately that the Kansas City Chiefs like taking taking chances on players with explosive attributes. Maybe it's the running back who has 4.25 speed. Or maybe it's the offensive lineman with an incredible time on the 3-cone drill. Last year, it was Chris Conley and his insane 45 inch vertical leap. This year the Chiefs picked up an undrafted free agent who would have had the top vertical at the Combine if he were invited. Shakiel Randolph, 6'3 and 213 pounds, out of Southern Methodist University is being called a linebacker / safety hybrid and I'm sure it's his 42 inch vertical...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 5/3

Good morning. Before I post all of the latest Kansas City chiefs news, I'm going to post some links related to a GoFundMe that was started by 610 Sports Radio. All proceeds are being given to Rose Brooks Center in Kansas City. The fund raiser was set up in protest to the selection of Tyreek Hill in the fifth round of last weekend's NFL Draft. It's meant to allow fans of The Kansas City Chiefs to express their displeasure (if they feel that), but to do so in a way that can actually affect someone's life for the better. As of this article's posting, over $7,700 had been donated. Here's your...

Chiefs will get first look at 2016 draft picks this weekend

The Kansas City Chiefs will get their nine draft picks, undrafted free agent signings and tryout players on the field next week for their rookie minicamp which is scheduled for Saturday, May 7 through Monday, May 9. We know who the Chiefs nine draft picks are. I'm not completely sure if all the draft picks will be there or not. They can sign injury waivers and participate as others have in the past but there's apparently some pushback against draft picks practicing without a full contract. And yes teams have already started signing picks. We don't know yet officially who the undrafted...

Chiefs 6th round pick DJ White had 3rd round talent, one analyst says

It only takes one person to love a draft pick to make it interesting. I know Pro Football Focus called Chris Jones the steal of the draft. Andy Reid thought KeiVarae Russell would go earlier than the third. Demarcus Robinson had second or third round talent according to some. And then there's Chiefs sixth round pick DJ White. He's a cornerback which are apparently hard to project because some go earlier than we thought (Artie Burns) and some go later than we thought (Mackensie Alexander). NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said in this podcast that DJ White was a sixth round pick he would've...

Did the Chiefs misjudge the reaction to drafting Tyreek Hill?

Danny and Carrington at 610 Sports and Rose Brooks are taking donations here. In the hours and days after the 2016 NFL Draft one of the top story lines in Kansas City was the Chiefs selection of former Oklahoma State RB / WR Tyreek Hill, who previously plead guilty to a domestic violence incident. The details of that incident are very ugly and have many Chiefs fans very upset that the Chiefs, whose owner was preaching character literally two days before, would draft a player with a background like this. Anyone could've told you this pick would have a bad reaction. It's why GM John Dorsey...

Chiefs give Florida State UDFA LB Terrance Smith a nice signing bonus

One name on the list of undrafted players the Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly signed after the 2016 NFL Draft is Florida State linebacker Terrance Smith. It's a pretty good guess that the Chiefs think Smith is a good player. Not only because they signed him but also because the Chiefs gave him a $15,000 signing bonus, according to Aaron Wilson. Kansas City Chiefs gave $15,000 signing bonus to Florida State linebacker Terrance Smith— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 1, 2016 That's a big signing bonus. Last year, the Chiefs really liked DL David Irving and gave him a signing...

Chiefs draft pick CB KeiVarae Russell: what he can do, where he fits in KC

The draft is over, the picks are in, and it's time to try and make some sense of who the Chiefs grabbed. There's going to be a lot to talk about with regards to the draft over the next week or so, then we enter the dreaded dead time of year, in which we will debate over and over about Alex Smith and maybe occasionally fight about whether Dontari Poe is elite. I'll try to fill the time with mailbags and film reviews of current Chiefs (I'll resume the Zach Fulton review once I'm done with the rooks, and Smith's will happen when I feel like getting yelled at a lot), but we all know that time...

Chiefs exercise Eric Fisher's fifth year option, no reason to freak out

The Kansas City Chiefs have indeed exercised the fifth year option on 2013 top overall pick Eric Fisher. This comes according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deadline to exercise the option was today. Chiefs exercised 5th-year option on former 2013 No. 1 overall pick, OT Eric Fisher, per source. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 2, 2016 Fisher is already under contract for 2016. This fifth year option is for the 2017 season. The Chiefs had until today to decide whether they would pick the approximate $11.9 million option up. Your first reaction is probably: Eric Fisher isn't worth $12...

Kansas City Chiefs new roster bubble after nine draft picks are added

A look at some Chiefs players we feel pretty good about making the Chiefs 53-man roster and those who are on the early roster bubble. An early depth chart (3) QB: Alex Smith, Aaron Murray, Tyler Bray OR Kevin Hogan Smith is the unquestioned starter but the backup competition could be wide open among the other three guys, including the newly drafted Kevin Hogan, who reminds me of Chase Daniel in almost every way. He fits the mold of what the Chiefs like in a backup QB. (3) RB: Jamaal Charles, Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West With the matching contracts to West and Ware, these three are...

Chiefs over / under win total and other NFL odds and predictions

How many games will the Kansas City Chiefs win in 2016? The over / under from the LV Super Bowl has the KC Chiefs at nine wins. There are eight teams that have higher over / under win totals than the Chiefs and three other teams who have the same win total. Las Vegas is saying the Chiefs are a slightly above average team which is about right. I'd put them in the category of the nine and 9.5 win teams below and a step behind those at 10 and 10.5 wins. 10.5: Patriots, Steelers, Seahawks, Panthers, Packers 10: Cardinals 9.5: Bengals, Broncos 9: Cowboys, Colts, Chiefs, Vikings You look at...

Eric Fisher's fifth year option deadline is today; what will Chiefs do?

The 2011 collective bargaining agreement added a wrinkle onto the contracts of first round picks. On top of the four year contracts they sign, those first round picks now have a fifth year option tacked onto the end of their contracts. One more way for teams to deny players the chance to hit the open market. For the Kansas City Chiefs, it's time to decide on LT Eric Fisher. The Chiefs need to decide if they want to pick up Fisher's estimated $11.9 million option by ... TODAY. To be clear, Fisher is under contract for the 2016 season. The Chiefs must decide whether to pick up his 2017 option...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 5/2

Good morning. Here's today's Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Lots of UDFA signings... getting ready for OTAs and camp. Wrapping Up the Weekend: 10 Things to Know About the 2016 Chiefs Draft from Chiefs.com 1. Kansas City's 2015 first round was very different from its 2016 first round Last year, the Chiefs started the NFL Draft with a bang, selecting cornerback Marcus Peters at No. 18. As we know, Peters went on to finish tied for the league lead in interceptions with 8 and he later won the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year Award. This year was much different. Sitting at...

Andy Reid's son tasked with coaching up Chiefs first round pick Chris Jones

I was reading through some of what DT Chris Jones had to say to the media after the Kansas City Chiefs made him a second round pick and something stood out to me in this quote when Jones was asked what he knew about the Chiefs. "I know they are a very competitive team. I know they have good coaches in Mr. Reid, both of the Reids, and I know they have a heck of d‐line coaches," Jones said. "They are a playoff team. I’d love to get up there and compete with the guys that are already on the d‐line and look for ways to make me better as a player and an individual." Note that he says BOTH...

Chiefs' John Dorsey surprised Myles Jack still on the board, thinks he goes early in round two

Interesting words from John Dorsey after the Kansas City Chiefs traded out of the first round. Dorsey was asked by the Kansas City media for some of his surprises following round one and Dorsey quickly said that the biggest surprise was that UCLA LB Myles Jack is still on the board. Once thought to be a top 10 pick, medical questions appear to have dropped Jack down the board. While Dorsey refused to talk about a player's medicals, he did say that Jack is a good football player and indicated that the medicals were involved here because it wasn't due to his play on the field. So the obvious...

NFL Draft's best remaining players for Chiefs include Myles Jack, Mackensie Alexander

The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is over as the Kansas City Chiefs traded out of the first round. Let's take a look as the best remaining players for the Chiefs.  Find Gil Brandt's list of all the best available here. Find all the Chiefs draft picks here. They have two day two picks - two in the second round. UCLA LB Myles Jack I can't believe he wasn't selected. Wow! He was thought to be a top 10 pick but now because of questions about his knee and whether he'll need microfracture surgery down the line it caused him to drop. This just seems like a great value at this point. The...
