What this means to KC, Having Berry Back? Matt Verderame's article this afternoon nails it down. I would add that Branch could start at safety if they have to move Parker up for a time. But also, the Chiefs have Sanders Commings, who played…

  • NSLU Report: What Berry's Return Does for the Chiefs

    What this means to KC, Having Berry Back? Matt Verderame's article this afternoon nails it down. I would add that Branch could start at safety if they have to move Parker up for a time. But also, the Chiefs have Sanders Commings, who played a lot of corner in college, Fleming and maybe Cooper has done a 180 from his 2014 slump...let's hope that is the case.

    Anyway, time to take a look at Matt's piece.

  • Reported a bit ago by multiple sources and the kcchiefs.com website: Chiefs release RB Cyrus Gray.

    (CA.Sports photo)

    Gray reported to camp today and worked with the team. He was early in reporting due to his injury which he incurred during the 2014 season-November (Knee,ACL). After the workout, It was announced to the media that Gray had been released.

    The Release of Gray came down to what Andy Reid indicated was a "Football Decision".

  • Long ago and far away now it seems, Eric Berry encountered a foe that he never anticipated: Cancer. That was Seven months ago and It was not known how long Berry would be out battling Hodgkins Lymphoma and if he would even be able to return to football, though the basic success rate for treating the disease is good.

    To be truthful, I did not even anticipate Berry returning to play football in 2015. This was, after all, a battle against a disease which could have proved fatal. To have Berry complete treatment successfully is supurb and wonderful. For the man to be able to report to the Chiefs Training Camp? It is a marvel of Eric Berry's determination and strength of character.

    All of us owe him a tip o' the…

  • NSLU Report: Poes' Woe!(Another storm to weather)

    Bad news all around for the Chiefs. We won't know how this affects the Chiefs outstanding nose tackle, Dontari Poe. It was reported during the OTA's that he had back spasms. It is more than that: Poe's Woe is in his Back!

    The surgery is another storm for the Kansas City Chiefs to weather. At least, the Chiefs have the depth to steer a coarse -- there is water moving past the bow. It may require shifting in Jaye Howard, or, perhaps an even better choice would be Mike DeVito*.

    It has been well observed by Chiefs and NFL observers over the past two seasons, that Dontari Poe has carried a huge workload and more snaps than any other player on defense 966 snaps.  the closest to him in that regard among all DTs, was Ndamukong Suh with 885. Much has been bandied about in the pundit circle about this workload, including the need to get Poe signed to a long term deal now that the Chiefs have use of 8.63 million dollars available now that the Chiefs locked up Justin Houston…

  • (NSLU: No Stone Left Unturned)

    All the pundits are measuring things by how many "blue chip players", or, where the holes are that aren't solved by an above the average level performance players. And this is good. It lets the analysts give their feed, get their take and we follow them like lemmings to the sea. Every season.

    No one can argue at the success of the 2014 defense. The exposures were evident also. John Dorsey has positioned players to have impact and to build upon for the upcoming season. What we are looking for is a Defense capable of "walling off the opposing offense." We won't see how it all fits together until it meshes and gels. But the pieces have been put in place for training camp. Indeed, there is more than 8 million in cap space available and we don't know what other goals Dorsey and his crew have before them. It could be a simple addition to this mix. However it unfolds, training camp opener is a few days away.…

    According to Aaron Wilson(National Football Post and Baltimore Sun), The Chiefs are signing 6'2"-190 CB Kevin Short. Short was in the Supplemental draft and went undrafted according to Wilson. He will receive the standard 3-yr contract for an undrafted rookie. Short played at Ft. Scott Com. College and was academically ineligible to play after transfer to KU.

    Short fits the Dorsey profile for length and speed. To make room for Short on the roster, the Chiefs waived former UNLV CB Kenneth Penny.

    Jack Steadman

    Clark Hunt's remarks:

    “My entire family is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jack Steadman. Jack was more than a dedicated and talented businessman, but a dear friend to my family. He was one of my father’s greatest business associates and the two of them accomplished much during the more than four decades they worked together. Jack played a key role in the development of the American Football League and was also an influential figure in the success of the Chiefs. During his tenure as General Manager, the team won four championships including Super Bowl IV.

    While Chiefs football was his true passion, Jack and my father had many other business ventures together, including the…
