The Chiefs will have another helping of Sausage in 2019, per report

The Chiefs will have another helping of Sausage in 2019, per report

A new report says the Chiefs have given fullback Anthony Sherman a contract to remain on the team in 2019 During our very first Arrowhead Pride live Q&A on Thursday, we were asked if we thought Kansas City Chiefs free agent fullback Anthony Sherman would be resigned by the team in 2019. Although we both characterized our opinions as leaning that way, both Pete Sweeney and I thought Sherman wouldn’t be back in 2019; Sherman might be too expensive, and the Chiefs had signed former Green Bay Packers fullback Aaron Ripkowski to a reserve/future contract. I’m very happy to report that...

There were rumblings about Chiefs trading Tyreek Hill, per Jay Glazer

There were rumblings about Chiefs trading Tyreek Hill, per Jay Glazer

The Athletic’s Jay Glazer dropped somewhat of a Glaze-bomb in his latest mailbag posted Thursday morning. When The Athletic’s Jay Glazer writes about something NFL-related, it is worth taking it seriously. Glazer was the first to report any inkling about the New York Giants potentially trading Odell Beckham Jr. when many regarded it as impossible. As we know now, Beckham Jr. eventually was traded to the Cleveland Browns. That is why this quote regarding Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill in his latest mailbag deserves some attention. Glazer speculated that Hill’s “name was...

Chiefs should consider recruiting Keith Reaser, De’Vante Bausby back when AAF season ends

Chiefs should consider recruiting Keith Reaser, De’Vante Bausby back when AAF season ends

The former Chiefs are the highest-rated cornerbacks in the AAF. Aside from a blip of life a few nights ago with the Memphis Express’ addition of quarterback Johnny Manziel, the Alliance of American Football’s (AAF) luster has worn off a bit from its first few weeks. But that doesn’t mean we should necessarily wholly ignore what is happening. Reporters asked Chiefs general manager Brett Veach about whether he was monitoring the AAF back in late February at the NFL Scouting Combine, and although the fact that he was seemed obvious, his description of how closely he is paying attention...

What Bashaud Breeland’s signing means for the Chiefs’ round-one draft strategy

What Bashaud Breeland’s signing means for the Chiefs’ round-one draft strategy

The Chiefs added Breeland to their cornerback room this week—here’s how it might affect the team’s draft strategy. The Chiefs added veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland into the mix this week to help add some talent to a position that desperately needs it. Breeland is a solid but unspectacular player. Is Breeland's addition to the roster enough for the Chiefs to ignore the corner position until day two of the NFL Draft? We tackled that question and more on this week's episode of the AP Laboratory. There are still two glaring needs on defense and they are the aforementioned cornerback...
