  1. FanSpeak Mock Drafts

    I know, I know ... but it's fun ... I went out to do a defense-centric mock, and ended up with this. Justtoo much talent on offense to pass up. Would require a focus on DL and probably S in free agency. But replacing one Longhorn with another ... priceless! 54: R2P22 G WILL HERNANDEZ UTEP - too good a value to pass up 78: R3P14 LB MALIK JEFFERSON TEXAS - Texas is back! 86: R3P22 TE DALLAS GOEDERT S DAKOTA ST - talk about 3TE sets 124: R4P22 LB UCHENNA NWOSU USC - Tamba's replacement? Build and playing style seem similar 199: R6P22 WR JAKE WIENEKE S DAKOTA ST 211: R6P34 QB NIC SHIMONEK TEXAS TECH - considered a dedicated backup รก la Bray 233: R7P15 DL NIFAE LEALAO VANDERBILT - double crapshot at DL, may be one is the next Nacho? 243: R7P25 DL GREG GILMORE LSU
  2. KC FA tracker

    I have no clue what to make out of these RB signings ...
  3. KC FA tracker

    Logan signs wih Tennessee ... good thing, may net the Chiefs a comp pick down the line. In other news: Toub promoted to Asst Head Coach. Guess he'll be on some teams' HC list again next year.
  4. KC FA tracker

    I think CB is definitely a bigger reason for concern. Behind Fuller, Nelson and Amerson (whatever to expect from him) there is virtually noone with any kind of gameday experience. Will Redmond was considered a 1st round pick by some when entering the 2016 draft (was selected in the 3rd), but his early career got absoutely derailed by injuries (knee 2016, ankle 2017), thus he didn't even play a down in pre-season. So unless the team saw something in last year's holdovers (Lampkin, Baxter, Reaser) we are not aware of, this position to me looks like a black hole. At S with Sorensen and now Golden you have at least someone with experience as backups - even If I'm not sure I'm comfortable with Murray starting over Parker (don't understand that move at all).
  5. Mock Draft

    I have no clue about college players. First three picks are about what I expect position wise. I don't think the Chiefs will be in a position to draft a plug&play NT - because that's what I'd like to see. So, yep, after round three the first year expecdtation should be backup at best, and that's what you did.
  6. Expectations for the 2018 Team

    As a result: Play Offs On the way: Lots of high fives and embarrassing losses In here: hopefully a little bit more conversation, some negatives, especially about the D Most important: Lots of fun
  7. Nickname for the Offense

    Way too early. A nickname needs to be earned.
  8. KC FA tracker

    the McGloin signing is interesting. From starter to 3rd QB??
  9. KC FA tracker

    signed NT Xavier Williams, a tendered RFA from Arizona. Wonder how they made Arizona not match. No draft pick compensation.
  10. Chiefs resignings?

    There's one thing that really bothers me: As of now I haven't read anything about asingle re-signing. None. Which means as of now all agents may contact the Chiefs' coming free agents. May drive the price up for some players, may lead to a realistic expectation wrt a new contract. However, I consider it weird that they didn't even announce/leak ERFA/RFA tags. Well, we'll see ...
  11. Chiefs resignings?

    I'm on vacation right now with limited time to spend on football. However, looks like it is busy times. I still see a big hole on DL, and depth lacking in quite a few spots. However, the latter can easily be filled through the draft. One thing that struck me when updating the offseason overview: Chiefs have lost 5 players qualifying for a comp pick (Wilson, KPL, Fulton, Bray, Mitchell), but signed only 3 (Watkins, Henne, and Hitchens) - and Logan and DJ are still out there. Don't think Acker, Ramik Wilson or any of the others will hit the benchmarks.
  12. Chiefs resignings?

    Just saw the Chiefs re-signed Anthony Sherman.
  13. Lots of players being released prior to the new League Year. I think the Chiefs will have a close look. They seem to try to preserve potential comp picks next year while being prudent with the cap. Post your ideas who might be of interest for the Chiefs here. This one caught my eye, as DL is lacking any depth right now. http://rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9180/benson-mayowa
  14. Has been discussed before, I didn't foresee it. But Terez brings it up again: His contract is non-tradable, so the team either keeps him, renegotiates him or lets him walk.
  15. Releases - who may be of interest?

    Chiefs will play the Rams in Mexico City
  16. Releases - who may be of interest?

    Wilkerson going to visit KC:
  17. Ron Parker gone as well!

    Just had a little chat with Jason of overthecap and he pointed out that this move is not official yet. I checked - and he's correct: wherever I looked I found "Parker IS EXPECTED to be released." So hold your breath ... Sorry for those who don't like him - but this may have been a stunt to renegotiate his contract ...

    That's the place where I'll stay for the next two weeks ...
  19. Marcus Peters traded to Rams

    Ok folks, my two cents. 1. This was not a money thing. Peters could have been kept on the team for two more years easily. 5th year option would have been more expensive than his current contract, but way below the going rate for a shutdown corner. 2. His performance was not an issue. Some complain about him playing 8 yards off. I think that was by intent. First: If it wasn't he'd been benched two plays into freelancing. Second: Playing off allowed him to do the thing he does best: go after the ball. Third: Playing off covers a whole lot of ground. Give'm the two yards. Pick'em off the next time. 3. This is about controlling the guy. It was well known he may become a headache. Obviously NOW the team had enough of it. Punting balls into the stands (unsportsmanlike), throwing flags around (unsportsmanlike), showing up without socks, taking the rest of the game off (weird), getting into issues with coaches (bad thing with Andy around), considering tackling as a "business decision". And that's only what we know of. Guess there have been other things behind closed doors. 4. (speculation) Team reputation. You have some guys performing extremely well. Everyone and their mothers will mentionsome of them as role models. On the current Chiefs: DJ, Berry, may be Tamba. Peters performed at the same level. But I never heard anyone mentioning him as a role model. Coincidence? Bottom line: This was about cleaning up the locker room before things get out of hand. And if it was that: Good luck LAR.
  20. The 2018 cap is out .. in case you didn't read it elsewhere: 177,200,000$ But here's a little observation I made browsing various sources: According to the NFLPA Cap Report the Chiefs turned over EXACTLY 2.6 M$ from last year. If you look at the list - any other team has some kind of odd number .. 10,234,065 $ or 152,354.017$. Only the Chiefs have an oddly even number. Didn't they turn over all remaining cap from 2017? And if so .. why?? #conspiracy
  21. 2018 KC Chiefs Offseason Events

    A tiny bit of update. More activity expected come next week - when I'll be on vacation in Andalusia (Spain, not Alabama ...)
  22. Updated with the official draft order (hint: no changes). Still unsure about the FA status of some players, but we should get formal confirmation pretty soon. NFL will release a heck of transaction list (contract expired ...) come 14 March. I expect some Chiefs resignings/releases to become official by the end of this week.
