  1. It's slow season so I'll jump on this one. Obviously that suggestion came up as a brain fart by a guy or two somewhere and took off at AP ... Interestingly: About 90% of Chiefs fans would not do it: https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2018/6/29/17519568/would-you-trade-tyreek-hill-straight-up-for-odell-beckham-jr Now the guys from New York checked out their fan base, and 80% wouldn't do it either: https://www.bigblueview.com/2018/7/2/17521448/odell-beckham-for-tyreek-hill-chiefs-fans-say-they-wouldnt-do-it#poll-results Interesting ... home bias? Or are there some true arguments behind it? For me it's mostly business aspects: Hill is still on his rookie deal - much cheaper than Beckham. Furthermore: He may be developed into a kind of home town guy like DJ or may be Zeus/LDT if handled appropriately - all his off-the-field-baggage put aside (yes, I know it's serious, but did anyone ever mention it over the season?) Performance-wise you can build around both players with Beckham probably being the better overall player but for speed. So - that's my thinking. Your thoughts?
  2. Kam Chancellor announced his retirement

    Sad to see him go this way. Priest Holmes did the same, walk away with an spinal injury, but he's a physical wreck right now. Hope Cam found a better time to call it quits. That said, the Safety market is weird this year. Still a lot of good players out there as free agents who obviously never got a (serious) call
  3. Sam Beal

    Supplemental draft is now scheduled for 11 July.
  4. Released: OG Kaleb Johnson RB J.D. Moore (Injured) DB Malik Reaves Signed: RB Algernon Brown WR Josh Crockett OT Bentley Spain Don't ask me details...

    S Brandon Bryant as well
  6. Adonis Alexander

    Welcome to the club! Good to have one more guy from the good side of the pond Ryk's gone for quite a while now as are many of the old ones. This has become a pretty quiet place, and Paylor's and Keysor's departure from their previous jobs doesn't help getting proper Chiefs information. The team's media department definitely has a job to do -and shutting out the media from OTA doesn't really help.
  7. Most Improved

    First thought: Erving and Kpassagnon. Chris Conley is starting from an extremely low baseline, but with the current setup he may be bound to break out. I have no clue what to expect from Murray. LDT is already starting from a rather high base.
  8. So Andy decided to keep the media out of OTAs ... little news pouring out other than those sanitized via the mothership. What I understand so far: - Conley is healthy and establishing himself as the #3 WR - Morse is not. Erving is taking snaps at C. I like the idea to develop a Fulton type guy who can man all the interior positions. - Berry's around at OTA. Which is great. - Speaks is actually practising at OLB. - Watkins is making weird grabs (against hot air defenders though). Other than that: I miss Terez Paylor.
  9. OTAs - little news ...

    Did Rudy Niswanger ever finish his MD?

  12. *=via official NFL release: Terminations: TE Anthony Firkser* DB Sheldon Price* NT Mike Purcell* Additions: no word yet All compiled here
  13. 2018 Kansas City Chiefs Calendar

    Just a little observation: As of 9 May remaining Unrestricted Free Agents are no longer subject to compensatory draft pick consideration. So the Chiefs would be free to sign additional veterans without losing a pick, which might be relevant especially at DB. If I did my maths right, the Chiefs may receive 3 comp picks next year: Lost: 73 Fulton, Zach (OG) - signed by Houston Texans*12 Wilson, Albert (WR) - signed by Miami Dolphins* 96 Logan, Bennie (NT) - signed by Tennessee Titans*56 Johnson, Derrick (LB) - signed by Oakland Raiders*57 Pierre-Louis, Kevin (LB) - signed by New York Jets* 39 Mitchell, Terrance (CB) - signed by Cleveland Browns* Signed: 14 Watkins, Sammy (WR)*53 Hitchens, Anthony (LB)*4 Henne, Chad (QB)* I don't think any of the other transactions will have an impact.
  14. Post-Draft Roster Moves

    Weird. Looks like the Chiefs re-signed DT Stefan Charles two days after releasing him
  15. Post-Draft Roster Moves

    RB Akeem Hunt returned to the Chiefs as Reserve/PUP after he was not claimed on waivers. In other news: TE Randall Telfer was waived by Indianapolis with a "failed physical" designation. Now we know why the Telfer/Nicholas deal did not pass. Unless claimed he should return to Indianapolis as Reserve/PUP as well.

    #4 Invitee signed: WR Jordan Smallwood
  20. Post-Draft Roster Moves

    and one more tryout signing:
  21. Random Observations about the Roster

    Dieter may compete with Thomas, Chesson, and Robinson. I only see three guys set at WR in Watkins, Hill, and Conley. DB has been an area of discussion all the time. I see O'Daniel challenging the Sorensen LB/S role, making room for another DB ... that's where Sterns comes into play. A guy I haven't seen play a snap, but receiving good reviews at camp for a second year.
  22. Chiefs have only 5 players of 30+ years left on the roster: Colquitt, Henne, Zombo, Devey, and Jenkins. Talk about getting younger. Chiefs have 3 RB named Williams on the roster. Reminds me of the 4 Johnsons at LB back in 2014 (I think). If your last name starts with "W" you may have a shot as a Chiefs RB: West, Ware, Williams, Williams, Williams On a more serious note: Checked where UDFAs may have a chance to crack the roster: QB: Litton and McGloin may compete for the #3 job. McGloin has hardly any guaranteed Money on his contract. OL: Seven slots taken, if they bring in an eighth everything is possible. McKenzie may need a year on the PS to complete his transition. TE: Pretty thin there after the Telfer/Nicholas deal didn't get through. However, reports from Rookie Camp indicate they view Mack more as a WR. CB: Any job behind Fuller, Nelson and Amerson should be up for grabs. Redmond may have the draft pedigree, but he's coming back from injury. I firmly believe they'll bring in another Veteran after June 2. Outside guys I'll watch closely: QB Chase Litton. Groomed as #3 or even #2 QB in a Tyler Bray role? Read really good things about him as a long term prospect prior to the draft. WR Gehrig Dieter. Had some good reviews in camp last year, obviously impressed at Rookie camp again. S Jordan Sterns. Injured last year, but also received good reviews.

    So what is McKenzie then not being drafted before the 6th round?
  25. Post-Draft Roster Moves

    Yep, with UDFAs. Well, if I ever went to sign my first employment contract in an outfit like that ... I guess I would have never had a chance to sign it.
