Chiefs released WR Sammie Coates.

Coates was signed in February but didn't make it to minicamp. He appeared in 12 games on special teams with Houston last year. Coates should eventually resurface.

 

*Per roto

We signed a UDFA tryout TE, Joe Forston.   6'4. 230. was A big WR at Valdosta State

Coates was a St guy. We just drafted several of those. I am more interested in the walk on the signed. Obviously a TE prospect with receiving skills. That's a combination worth exploring.

One more:

 

FB J.D. Moore released, G Zack Golditch claimed off waivers from Arizona

Golditch is a second year player with marginal talent at OG. He played two games as a rookie and was obtained off waivers. He's a bit undersized but apparently fairly athletic and played several positions in college. The team may see him as a play anywhere backup, a possible C conversion, or just a camp body.

Something new on Golditch. He was one of the lesser injured victims in the famous Colorado theater shooting. It should also be noted that his history is similar to Andrew Wylie's--small school, PS for multiple teams. Wylie was our top rookie last season.

Here is an article on five rookies to watch in camp.

Juan Thornhill
Nick Allegretti
Mecole Hardman
Khalen Saunders
Jack Fox

A couple are no-brainers--Thornhill and Hardman. Not far behind are Saunders and Allegretti. The interesting one is Fox, a punter.

For more in-depth, here is an article on FA signee CB Mark Fields. 
https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2019/5/14/18622566/chiefs-lottery-tickets-cornerback-mark-fields

Fields was a four-year player at Clemson, yet only started six games in that time. However, his lack of playing time definitely wasn’t due to ability. Fields showcases some serious quickness, and the long speed (4.37 40-yard dash) to carry vertical routes. His quickness was evident right off the bat in the national championship game. Coming in off the bench for an injured Trayvon Mullen, Alabama went right at Fields with a bigger tight end.

Stout, in his typically thorough fashion, explains that Clemson relies heavily on pattern-match zone, which Spagnuolo also uses. He also expalins that footwork and attitude issues kept him from being a starter at Clemson. Here is the conclusion

Fields exhibits the football acumen, speed and experience in coverage schemes that the Chiefs want to run. He’s got supremely high upside — higher than the Chiefs’ sixth-round pick, Fenton — and can contribute in year one as a gunner and a backup nickel cornerback.

However, he’s got a couple parts of his game as a cornerback that raised eyebrows for teams. On top of that, he has some warranted off-field concerns that prevented teams from wanting to make a major investment to try to unlock his high potential. This is a very low-risk, potentially high-reward move — and arguably my favorite addition of the 2019 draft class.

We haven't been fairing too well with "off-field concerns" lately.

Chris Jones has been a stud

We got three tremendous year of Tyreek (at least, let's see about the future) for a 5th rounder

We got a late 2nd and 2 solid years of Peters for a late 1st

We got 1.5 very good years of Hunt for a 3rd 

 

Sure those players (except CJ) ended their KC tenures poorly. But I will take the production we got for the investments we made (aside from maybe Peters)

It didn't take long for New York Jets interim general manager Adam Gase to make his first trade.

The team on Wednesday night agreed to send linebacker Darron Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2020 sixth-round pick, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sorry, didn't see the separate string posted.

We should trade for CB Patrick Peterson. He just got suspended for 6 games this is our window to make a trade at bargain pricing.

There's just one minor issue: Check his contract: This year is doable, especially with the suspension. But 13 M$ next year? Plus signings of Jones, Fuller, Mahomes and may be Hill? Or give away a what - 2nd? 3rd? rounder for a 10 week hire?

Lee is a nice pickup. As a first-round pick, he has been a disappointment but as cheap (next thing to free) depth he's outstanding.

For us, he's a speed-and-coverage WLB, indeed the coverage aspect is premium grade. Pencil him as the starting WLB. Though he is undersized at 230 pounds, he has made strides against the run. He should be an every down LB, coming out only in short yardage. 

Much as I like Patrick Peterson, I think this is the sort of pickup Super Bowls are built on.

It's a small thing but we just signed John Phillips-TE. He isn't much of a pass receiver but he blocks well.
