  • Big News Wednesday!!!

    Important news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In a surprise move, the Chiefs released CB Kei Russell, their 2016 3rd round pick. it is speculated that they will pick him back up and put him on the PS if he clears waivers. Meanwhile the Chiefs re-signed OLB Dezman Moses who was released to get the roster down to 53 men. Obviously, one of the exposures for the team is at OLB with Justin Houston not expected to return from his injury, surgery and rehab until November. Too, the Chiefs are deep at CB with Peters, Gaines, Nelson, Ackers along with DJ White and Eric Murray for example. We'll have to wait to see if Russell clears waivers. Was his being drafted a mistake? Hmmm. I was pretty positive about Russell's pick when the Chiefs made it.

    At the same time the Chiefs renegotiated the contract of Justin Houston -- this is a good move because it brings back cap space for 2017 when it will be…

  • These "Reflections" were brought about because Charie Finley moved the Athletics to the bay and the Texans came to town.

    (Link to SI Article by Uncle Mike at the bottom).

    Long ago, I had dismissed the Athletics as a team that I could support. There was much reason to be influenced to look elsewhere. After all, my father was a Cards fan and if I paid attention to baseball it wasn't the A's -- it was the Cards.

    In the late 50s during the summer. I listened to Harry Carey at night before or as I went to sleep out on the farm west of a small town in order number 11 ground. The Cards were renowned and I even knew who…

  • NSLU: John Dorsey & Crew Making Waves in Free Agency

    I was going to wait a couple of more days, see if there were even more signings but the latest has strengthened my view that the Chiefs are working forward to compete for the NFL Title in 2016. But first, let's take a look at what happened thus far with our own free agents. I want to say this out of the gate: John Dorsey is doing a heck of a job as the KC GM.

    So let's take a look and see what has happened as the Chiefs make their moves in the Free Agent period. Dorsey and Co have been extremely busy and from my chair, I am extremely pleased…

  • NSLU Update: Chiefs Tag Berry

    The following is from showing yet at Team Transactions.

    Chiefs Place Franchise Tag on S Eric Berry

    Posted 3 hours ago

    The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that the club has placed the franchise tag on safety .

    "Our goal is to keep Eric in Kansas City for the foreseeable future,” Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey said. “He’s a special player that means a lot to our organization, the city, and has been a critical piece in building our foundation. With today being the deadline to use the franchise tag, we felt it was in the best interest of the club to place the tag on Eric.”

    Berry (6-0, 212) has played in 70 games (68 starts) in six NFL seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs (2010-15). His career numbers include 384 tackles (308 solo), 26 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks…

  • NSLU: A Big Windy(Part 2): At the Combine

    From Today at Indianapolis

    I am going to cover things as I think of them but at the outset(as above) and from today’s Dorsey Presser which are selected from the Press on Site because of how I view their import.

    Today, when asked about Eric Berry at the GM Combine Presser, Dorsey said: that he’s meeting with Eric Berry’s Agent at the Combine this weekend(source; Terez Paylor).

    Dorsey also was asked about DJ and Dorsey confirmed that he had had discussions with DJ’s Agent this week. Further,

    When asked, Dorsey talked about Chase Daniel,…

  • Okay, this is going to be wordy, but I think this where things stand at this moment. I started this piece on Tuesday and here it is Thursday Night. Day 2 at Indianapolis has passed into “that good night”.

    FIRST: General Thoughts, speculating aloud and putting it on paper

    A couple days ago when I was penning the beginning of this piece, I had listed Tyvon Branch with a higher ceiling and thus he would be re-signed for the 3rd safety role. This supports my view--read the article Here.

     Elsewhere I had been asked about Abudullah and then Branch.

    First a question: where do you get that Abdullah retired...?  He is a Free…

  • NSLU: John Dorsey's startup was in January and then some

    I covered  the Senior Bowl in a couple of articles and it really was basic tid-bits and impressions. It is far to early to worry about the resulting performances. Too, we are coming up on the Combine in about a week -- here is where the metrics get applied. John Dorsey and the scouts will know which players set themselves up for good performances and that will be obvious by the results.

    They will, however, take a deep look at how the metrics translate for their potentially selecting a player and placing him on their board -- how will he fit, and does he fit the Chiefs player persona.

    On January 8th, John Dorsey extended the contract of Tight End Demetrius Harris to a very nice 3 year deal. Then he…

  • NSLU View: Where to Start (Part 2)-- Receivers & Corners

    It’s very Early yet. Too early to put much stock in things. We will know a lot more after the combine and pro days.

    (Mitchell's one handed grab at Mobile)

    Wide Receivers

    Ranked WRs are pretty deep. The first two  in the draft are probably gone by #28 but it is possible that xxxx would be available at pick 28. Out of the gate, Ole Miss Jr Laquon Tredwell(6-2, 210) is slotted to be a top 10 pick. Corey Coleman(Baylor, 5-10-190) is ranked as player #24 by CBS.

    The way SI looked at WRs, was in this order:  Sterling Shepard(OU), Leonte Caroo(Rutgers), Braxton Miller(OSU), Paul McRoberts(SE Mo. St), Aaron Burbridge(MSU), Jordan Payton(UCLA), Tajae Sharpe(UMass), Malcolm Mitchell(GA), KJ May(Minnesota), Jay Lee(Baylor) and a couple more. I highlight those I think rise…
