Did UK prevent Matt House from joining Chiefs? | A Sea of Blue

Then on Saturday, it was reported that House had turned down the job offer and was going to stay at Kentucky. But later that night this story took yet another turn. It was reported from multiple NFL insiders that House did want to take the Kansas City job and it was essentially done, but then, Kentucky decided to prevent the move from happening…It is a bad look for Kentucky if they really did block House from taking a job he wanted with the Chiefs. Hopefully, whatever the truth is, it will emerge in the coming days and we’ll know all of the facts regarding House, Kentucky and the Chiefs.

Chiefs defensive assistants in flux, Kentucky defensive coordinator House remaining at post | The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs are still in need of a linebackers coach. The University of Kentucky confirmed that defensive coordinator Matt House is remaining with the university days after an ESPN report surfaced that he was joining Chiefs’ defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s staff as the linebackers coach. Former Chiefs linebackers coach Mike Smith, who coached the position for three seasons, took a similar position with the Packers in late January. Mark Deleone, who was responsible for the Chiefs inside linebackers, took the same post with the Chicago Bears.

PATRICK MAHOMES TROLLS CHIEFS AND ANDY REID WITH HILARIOUS NBA 2K INSTAGRAM STORY | Total Pro Sports

Earlier this week, Patrick Mahomes took to the hardcourt for a pickup basketball game. And while he impressed damn near everyone with his ridiculous handles, he scared the heck out of the Chiefs’ front office, causing them to put an end to his basketball-playing days. So how’s Mahomes occupying himself now that he can’t shoot hoops with the boys anymore? According to the Pro Bowl quarterback’s Instagram Story, he’s still playing basketball…just the NBA 2k version. Oh, and in case you’re wondering which team Mahomes prefers to play with, that would be the Andy Reid-led Brooklyn Nets.

Patrick Mahomes should be drafted in first round of fantasy football in 2019 | Chiefs Wire

On the surface taking a quarterback in the first round in fantasy football seems crazy, but Mahomes showed no signs of slowing down in 2018. What will he look like a year wiser and with a better defense playing for the Chiefs? What’s the worst type of regression that Mahomes could possibly face in his second year as an NFL starter? No quarterback has a more stable situation right now than Mahomes. He’s got the watchful eye and guidance of Andy Reid. He’ll still have two playmakers who were top fantasy performers at their positions (Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce). He’s bound for another great year.

KC Chiefs: Reasons to be excited for 2019 season | KC Kingdom

The 53rd version of the nation’s largest sporting event had Kansas City Chiefs fans angry. They knew if their quarterback, MVP Patrick Mahomes II, was on the field it would have been an much more entertaining game, not to mention the possibility of the franchise’s first title in nearly half a decade. Just two weeks earlier in the AFC Championship game the 23-year-old phenom had completed 16-of-31 passes for 295 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions while leading his team to 31 second-half points.

Kansas City Chiefs free agency 2019: Top 5 targets | Fansided

Entering the offseason with approximately $26.2 million in cap space per Over The Cap, it’s unlikely that Kansas City will go on any sort of major spending spree. And while there is plenty of defensive talent in the upcoming draft, here’s a look at five players on both sides of the ball who could help improve the Chiefs roster via the free agent market.

Kansas City Chiefs: Anthony Sherman should be a bigger weapon in 2019 | Fansided

Without digging into who the Chiefs should grab in either free agency or the draft, I wanted to look at a player already on the roster. Fullback Anthony Sherman has slowly seen his playing time dwindle with the NFL moving to a pass-heavy league in the last few seasons. While I still believe that the team needs to run the ball more during some games, I think that Sherman brings more to the table than what the tradition of the position implies.

wonder if DJ #56 might be a good candidate for the LB Coach position?

Tarkus

Highly doubtful. He’d be a better candidate for an intern or assistant to the LB coach (as Al Harris did under Emmitt Thomas). Too big a job for a first time coach.

A 3rd round pick? Dang, I’d like to get more than that.

1 AND a 2 for Ramsey? Nah, he’s a tad overrated. Last year took a lot of bloom off of the rose for me when it comes to Ramsey. 1 & a 4, or 2 & a 3?….. now we’re moving.

Sorry but the price has been set: A corner who isn’t welcome in the building anymore but with starting (and at times, Pro Bowl) talent ain’t worth two top 60 picks. He’s worth one top 60 pick, and the rest is fungible. (Source: Early 2018 offseason).

Houston for a 3? Nah. Cap numbers make that highly unlikely, unless we ship him to IND or the NYJ. 3 and a player? That I could see.

Agree wholeheartedly.

I agree with you on Ramsey, but if they can dump all of Houston’s salary that is of interest. What would you say to the following: Chiefs move Houston to, say, NYG for their 3rd and NYG takes all salary. Then Chiefs trade #29 to JAX for Ramsey. They now have two seconds and two thirds. I don’t hate this. Plus they have the tag and trade option with Ford as a means to get back into round one.

Now we’re talking. I’d pull the trigger there, given the contingencies listed (NY taking the last two years of 50’s deal and Ramsey going for ONE top 60 pick).

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

Right. It’s all just speculation at this point regardless.

I think Ramsey likely couldn’t be had for one pick. That said, a first round selection is hard to turn down, unless someone is willing to give a first and then something else.

Honest question, when is the last time a player was tagged and traded? Sounds like a great idea for us of course, but also pretty idealistic. What team is gonna bite on that trade?

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

Honest answer, without looking on the Google machine, I do not know if it has ever happened.

Jarvis Landry, just last year.

Does anyone else, find it moronic that (all be it just a filler What If column) We’re linked to a talented, but malcontent very much me CB. A 1st and 2nd round pick?? Just one off season after shipping out our own #22. If anything, just seeing the estimated trade value of Ramsey at 1st and 2nd rd pick, kinda makes you feel like we got worked over by the Rams. Atleast it does for me.

We got worked by the Rams.

I just don’t see moving on from Houston barring some badass falling to us in the draft. Even retaining Ford I don’t feel like you can let Houston go. Speaks isn’t even close so you need smart players that can transition and teach the youngins along the way.

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

Speaks isn’t close as an EDGE guy. As a DE I have a feeling he’s much closer. Also KPass might be a really solid DE in this system as well. I don’t think Ford and Houston stay as LBs with Spags. I think they have to be DEs.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

I think Houston and Ford are a little light to be playing DE. Both are in the 250 range. Most DE’s are closer to 280 – 290.

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

I agree, which leaves them in the lurch with the Spags system. They CAN play LB, but let’s face it, they aren’t going to excel at it.

WTF_Chiefs
WTF_Chiefs

Most really good 4-3 DEs are in the 260-275 range except for few that have amazing get off that can play closer to 250

The SDE in Spags D tend to be bigger guys that hover 270-280 that can reduce down to a DT in pass rushing sub packages

ElPasoJason
ElPasoJason

Hadn’t thought of Speaks that way. Interesting thought. Wasn’t DE his position in college and we were moving him to OLB?

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

Yes. He played more 3-tech in college than EDGE.

KC Dude (A.K.A Zif)

I would also recommend keeping an eye on players in the AAF. Could be able to pick up something there.

pass, if we’re trading a 1st and a 2nd for Ramsey, Id atleast want to recoup a 2nd for Houston. We’d be giving up likely 3 defensive starters and only getting 1 back in this scenario

Of the five free agents listed, Tre’ Boston is the only one I could see in Chiefs red. Darius Philon would be a nice addition but the Chargers won’t just let him walk. The others? No thanks.

Still grumpy about this whole LB coach situation.
