2K20--Bye Week

Recommended Posts

If Taco is available for the playoffs, he would be a nice arrow in the quiver.

Demone Harris re-signed to the practice squad. Tim Ward was elevated from PS the day before.

Tony Gonzalez offered to pay Kelce's fine for dunking the TD pass on the goalpost.

Great article on Turk Wharton. Matt Lane does his usual stellar job, complete with game clips. From what we know now, he should have been at least a day #2 pick. The primary reason he would not be first round material is his size, which is a matter of some dispute. The article puts him at 6'1", 280, but the flagship puts him at 6'4", 255. By eyeball, I lean to the article. His snap count was at 60% again vs Carolina. That's a start percentage.

This is good. LDT just made the Pro Football Hall of Fame, sort of. The HoF is doing an exhibit on COVID. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was the first to opt out for COVID reasons and he did it to serve as a medical doctor in time of need. Included in the HoF's event will be his lab coat and scrubs.

Pat Mahomes also received off the field recognition. He helped set up voting at Arrowhead Stadium. NFLPA awarded him Community Player of the Week.

More detail on the Baker visit. It appears that the lawyer for the alleged victims has been arrested for extortion. This sounds rather like when Tyreek's ex-girlfriend staged things.

Expect him to sign with the PS for a week at least. It's a huge addition if it works out. The secondary will have a ton of talent.

In unrelated news, Taco Charlton is getting surgery on his ankle.

A few weird things right now:

1. Taco Charlton has yet to be placed on IR. Guess it will happen to make room for Baker though.
2. Signing Johnny Townsend. Is Tommy nicked up? Otherwise this move doesn't make any sense.
3. Sneed still has to be designated for return and start practicing. Was sure that was going to happen during bye week.
4. Okafor HAS been designated for return and resumed practice.
5. The Chiefs have no active player on the roster officially designated an OT.
6 Sunday will see a matchup of the COVID-19 OL against the COVID-19 DL.

@kingseanjohn might be geeking out.   You were super high on him if I remember correctly 

I tried to go back to see what I wrote about him. I remember thinking him and Murphy were the most ready to go day one. I am excited to see what he can do in our defense.

Here is what the Wire had to say back then.

It does make all the sense in the world - I just didn't think far enough to be a NFL GM:

Good song. Johnny Cash right?    I don't think D.Baker knows how to pick a lawyer. He picked one that tried extortion on him. LOL.
