Chiefs propose rule changes to overtime, review of personal fouls | The Kansas City Star

Under the proposed amendment to Rule 16, each team would possess the ball at least once in overtime, even if the first team scores a touchdown. Overtime would also be eliminated in the preseason.
And the coin toss would be eliminated from overtime. Instead, the team that won the initial coin toss would choose whether to kick or receive or which goal to defend

Chiefs’ Overtime, Replay Rule Changes Under Consideration | Chiefs Digest

The Chiefs also suggested another rule which would add review of personal fouls as plays subject to the coaches’ challenge for instant replays. Coaches could challenge personal fouls called or not called on the field. Washington proposed an alternate rule change that would make personal fouls reviewable. Washington also proposed the most sweeping replay review rule. Their suggested change would subject all plays in the game to coaches’ challenges by teams or review by the replay official.

NFL Rumors: Carlos Hyde to Visit Chiefs After Jaguars Release | Bleacher Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars released running back Carlos Hyde on Friday, and the Kansas City Chiefs might snatch him quickly from the free-agency pond.

Could Chiefs target cut players to get most compensatory picks in 2020? | Chiefs Wire

It’s certainly a strategy worth thinking about. For instance, there are three free agent safeties who’ve been released that are all quite intriguing. I’ve already spoke a bit on Eric Weddle, then you have guys like Tashaun Gipson and Darian Stewart. Stewart was drafted by Steve Spagnuolo’s Rams team, and in this free agent class you might even get him at a discount. Gipson is just a really solid player hitting the market, and he’s only 28 years old. That’s just one position group and you already have three solid options out there and available.

2019 NFL Free Agency: Ranking 11 landing spots for Earl Thomas, including the Cowboys, Chiefs, 49ers | CBS Sports

2. Kansas City Chiefs
My personal favorite landing spot is Kansas City. 

Before Thomas broke his leg,
the Chiefs were nearing a trade for him, according to Yahoo!’s Terez Paylor. Since then, the Chiefs watched their terrible defense cost them a spot in the Super Bowl. Fixing the defense has to be their priority this offseason. The Chiefs could sign Thomas and still use Eric Berry closer to the line of scrimmage. Thomas alone wouldn’t fix the Chiefs’ defense, but he would shore up the back end better than anyone else. The Chiefs are certainly in win-now mode and they have a clear problem that Thomas could help fix.

I haven’t read the comments below but here goes: Andy won a “Greasy” award….who would’ve thunk it!

wustl_chiefs_fan

Interesting note on Ford. This tweet makes it sound like we could get a very good return for him. #30 overall maybe?

Snafu

The flexibility that would af(ford) would be incredible.
All these safeties being cut should, one would think, drive down FA prices.

Carlos Hyde sounds like a perfect addition to the running backs. I’m still on the Darell Williams train. I think we see magic from him next year

CHIEFSandSABRES

Do you guys think anyone from the Chiefs brass sneaks around on social media/blogs and laughs at all our fan suggestions? They are in the know and they just clown on us for our theories or trade ideas?

The Fresh Prince

Pretty likely they have someone do it. Probably some intern.

KC_SunDevil
KC_SunDevil

Agreed

You think they came up with the idea to draft Mahomes on their own? They were obviously reading AP.

I would be ok with KC using the strategy of picking up guys who have been cut so that they can amass comp picks for next year. Gipson and Hyde, please.

Packers and SF reported to be eyeing Dee Ford

CHIEFSandSABRES

Good. And bye.

Mitko
Mitko

I like Dee Ford but I wouldn’t mind if they traded him for the right price

CHIEFSandSABRES

Like him also, but I’m all for draft picks and getting rid of the old. We all literally complained about that defense. All. Year. Long. Outside of Chris Jones, I would say everyone is available for the right price.

KC_SunDevil
KC_SunDevil

If they can get a second, take it. I feel he was a flash in the pan last year and will revert to mediocrity

Mattl
Mattl

I feel like he was far better than mediocre….when healthy. But until last year, his reliability was really questionable. With that being the case, I think we need to move on if we can get a 2nd.

I would jump on a third this year and a conditional pick the next year.

Me too, just don’t line up offsides before you jump!

On that note, I can’t believe other teams haven’t been knocking down our door for the right to acquire Tanoh Kpass.

Mattl
Mattl

I wonder if we could get SF’s 2nd. That’s nearly a 1st round pick. I love Ford, but since we need to cut some costs, SF’s 2nd rounder would be cool. I’m guessing that’s a stretch though.

CHIEFSandSABRES

If Veach didn’t take it, Clark should show him the door when he gets back from kicking his soccer ball around.

Mattl
Mattl

At the very least, I’d think Green Bay would offer their 2nd. Obviously we’d much prefer SF’s 2nd, but GB needs pass rush, so a 2nd for the leading edge rusher in pressures in 2018 would be huge for them. Crazy to think that, depending on how this all shakes out and how good Veach does in the draft, we could have 5-6 new starters on defense.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Hindsight is 20/20 but knowing what we know now about last years defense, I would have been fine with 9-10 new starters, and a new DC! We are on the right path with a new DC so I’ll temper my anger.

Mitko
Mitko

I honestly wonder if the Chiefs wanted to hire Sags last year, but he wanted a year off. Hence the drafting of 3-4 guys

CHIEFSandSABRES

I didn’t get any indication last off season that they were done with Bob Sutton. Seemed like they wanted to roll him out there again.

StramtoReid

We might have to give up a draft pick to the 49ers if we trade Ford for S.F. second round pick. I would give up a 4th round pick for S.F. 2nd round pick.

I’m hoping S.F. or G.B will pull the trigger and make this trade happen.

Mattl
Mattl

Personally, I wouldn’t trade Ford + a 4th for SF’s 2nd. I think he’s worth more. Remember, he led all edge rushers in pressures last season. That’s huge. True, he has health issues and may not be an all-around elite player, but he’s darn good. We shouldn’t need to sweeten the deal, IMO.

Mattl
Mattl

(And since we don’t have a 4th this season, I’m assuming it’s a 2020 4th you’re talking about.)

StramtoReid
StramtoReid

Actually I forgot K.C. didn’t have a 4th round pick, i hope your right and we could trade Ford and S.F. second round pick straight up.

Mattl
Mattl

Interestingly, there’s a lot of talk on Twitter (take that for what it’s worth, obviously) that since GB has two 1sts (their own + the Saints at 30), that the 30th pick could be on the table for Ford. That would be pretty cool.

Yeah but it’s for an expensive one year rental.

wustl_chiefs_fan

Is it? The Raiders got 2 1sts for Mack, is Ford worth less than half of Mack?

Mattl
Mattl

I think the injury history makes the difference. Mack (obviously) is elite and worth two 1sts. Ford has had one great season (2018) and a couple decent seasons (when healthy).

Having said that, I’ve seen estimates on Twitter of everything from a 1st and a 2nd (not gonna happen) to a 1st to a 2nd and a 4th. Interpretation: we have no idea.

wustl_chiefs_fan

My gut feeling is that you’re right, that we’d get a 2nd from one of them. But it seems like the Mack trade showed that pass rushers are a premium position, and you have to pay up to get a good one, so we should be getting more.

Mattl
Mattl

The Packers 30th pick would be cool. That would give us 29 & 30, prime position to get two immediate starters OR (knowing Veach) a trade up for “his guy” in the 10-15 range.

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

Maybe a second and a player? Who would KC want off either of those rosters?

wustl_chiefs_fan

Aaron Rodgers would make a nice backup.

SCKSChief

LOL. Trade Henne!

QuackTastic

I just know I’d be pissed if my team traded a second rounder for a one year rental.

wustl_chiefs_fan

It’s not a one year rental, any team that traded for him would give him an extension.

QuackTastic
QuackTastic

For some reason I thought they’d only get the tagged year and they’d need to renegotiate aka give him a huge contract to keep him around. Is that not true?

Kcrobwins

We also aren’t in a particularly strong position. Teams know these guys don’t really fit what were trying to do now.

Trade to Packers for their 30th. Trade 29th and 30th for Cardinals 1st overall. Bosa to Chiefs .

Done deal. #Veached

Love my Chiefs but the proposed overtime rules changes sounds like sour grapes and makes them sound like whiny little bitches.

Try not going three and out for half the game next time.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Agree

irafreak

I don’t have a problem with it. The rules are bad. I would have the home team decide instead of the winner of the original toss.

SuperMegaChief
SuperMegaChief

It needs to be changed. Sudden death rules are inherently problematic. When rule changes are proposed, it’s usually by the team that was just screwed by the current rule so the Chiefs don’t look any worse than any other team.

Mitko
Mitko

I completely agree, but I wished the rule change they proposed wasn’t just an extension of the problem and an actual solution

ChiefArrowhead
ChiefArrowhead

Disagree completely. Both teams should get the ball. I actually like the rules they have for the AAF if I’m remembering them right. Both teams get the ball on the 30 or 40? And get a chance to score. No goals or extra point attempts allowed.

KCChef
KCChef

Let’s say thyis Rule was in Place & Both teams Scored a TD … The Pats Woulda drove down in their next possession for a FG … Game Over … Right ? … Nothing is Solved ! … : (

ChiefArrowhead

No, you can’t go for a field goal or extra point. Gotta be for 2. And each team gets to go again if they both score.

“Mr Big Checks”. Still an asshat and would fit right in with the asshat raiders.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Agree here also! These guys and all their garbage it make easy to root against them. Throwing furniture from a 14 story apartment and nearly hitting a child? Did you see the list of garbage that some dude in Buffalo compiled about AB? Why would ANYONE want that around?
I get the diva attitude, the “I want the ball attitude.” But AB is literally breaking the law. Doing criminal tier stuff. No thanks.

Brown the receiver is worth 20m
Brown the ego subtracts 30m

Ergo I’d spend 10m (of someone else’s money) to make him go away

Plus his QB would be Carr!

Hyde would be a decent addition. Nothing to get too excited about but gives us a solid veteran to replace Ware. It would be fun to see Antonio Brown catch some passes from Mahomes but a key component last year was that none of our receivers had a problem with the number of balls thrown their way. End of that story with Brown. LeVeon Bell would be the more interesting addition. Do not think that the Chiefs go that direction but, if they did, Mahomes, Kelce, Hill, Watkins, and Bell would create nightmares for the opposing team. They could keep Bell for a couple of years by releasing Sammy at the end of this coming year. Will be disappointed if we do not add a safety with that many decent safeties on the market. Once again, I will state that I hope the Chiefs take a flyer on Dominique Rogers Cromartie to strengthen our CB position.

QuackTastic
QuackTastic

Would much rather sign Bell than Brown. Don’t really need either though. But Bell would make this offense insane.

workingmansdead

How about no?

KC_SunDevil

From the second round on CBS Sportsline’s mock draft. It just screams ‘reach’

Erik McCoy, OC, Texas A&M
If the Chiefs can’t retain Mitch Morse, they’ll have a big need at the center spot. McCoy is a high-end athlete who’s mostly reliable in battles against powerful defensive tackles and when he needs to get on the move.

Mostly?!?

EAFOX
EAFOX

Have seen the Chiefs connected to Jenkins from Miss St and Bradbury from NC State – both in the second round. Seems to me that the biggest factor is whether the Chiefs think that Austin Reiter would be a serviceable starter for the next year or so with Devey as the possible backup.

BoJest

Assuming they re-sign Devey.

I’ve been hoping that we see some news about players we are letting go to open cap room. There is an odd silence from the Chiefs end on that front and lord knows there are players who need to go to open up more.

Hopefully today or tomorrow….

CHIEFSandSABRES

It seems like they always do this. Everyone else making moves and the Chiefs stand pat.

go_saleaumua
go_saleaumua

…and then we go and sign Watkins, right?

/raises an eyebrow

CHIEFSandSABRES

Didn’t his move come a little later. Should have clarified “early on.” Seemed to be a flurry of movements early on, fans got restless last year for a move also.

KC_SunDevil

Love the rumor mill huddle.

Still waiting to see if the Chiefs to commit
1) to win now
2) to the future or
3) to being merely very good (and hoping to be lucky at least once) over a sustained period
