29 Chiefs

Zach Allen, EDGE/DL, Boston College 
Line Allen up anywhere, and he’s going to create havoc. The Chiefs need another player to rely on to generate pressure outside of 
Chris Jones inside.

Kansas City Chiefs: Ndamukong Suh worth bringing in for visit | KC Kingdom

Suh might not be the dominant player that he was during his days at Nebraska, but he’s still a very good defensive tackle and stays healthy. In fact, in his nine year career (can’t believe he’s been in the league that long already), Suh has only missed two games. That’s the kind of health the Chiefs need on their defense, after having injury-riddled players like Eric Berry and Justin Houston for a number of years.

29. Kansas City Chiefs

The 
Chiefs had one of the worst defenses in the NFL last season and it doesn’t seem like there’s any way it’s going to get much better with the team losing Dee FordEric BerryJustin Houston, and Steven Nelson since the beginning of the month. The Chiefs signed multiple defensive players to make up for their losses, but it’s starting to feel like 2019 could turn out a lot like 2018 in Kansas City: Patrick Mahomes is going to have to put up 70 points per game for the Chiefs to compete. 

Key players added/re-signed: Tyrann Mathieu, EDGE Alex Okafor, LB Damien Wilson, CB Bashaud Breelan, RB Carlos Hyde, WR Sammie Coates, QB EJ Manuel, CB Dontae Johnson

Chiefs’ draft history at pick No. 29 | Chiefs Wire

1965 WR Otis Taylor

Until 1967, the AFL and NFL had separate drafts. The AFL draft had over 30 rounds and only 14 selections in the first round. The NFL draft had 20 rounds and only 14 selections in the first round. So while Taylor wasn’t a first-round pick, he was the 29th overall selection in the 1965 AFL draft by the Chiefs. He was also selected in the NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 15th round.

Morning Bowl of (T)Weeties:

Before we get started, just a minor editor’s note. As I alluded to in the Huddle comments yesterday, I’m trying out a different way to bring you a good selection of tweets. I’m curious for your honest feedback so let me know what you think in the survey after the tweets. Whether you hate the new look of the tweets, think they should feature a different person, or like the new delivery method, I want to know! Thanks!

Sounds ok to me. I personally don’t give a shit if some guy wants to pay to get a hand job.

So if he’s publicly admitting to the Acts by Apologizing … What was the Big Deal w/ Not Taking the Plea Deal ? …Not enough Legal “Billables ” ? , Not Enough Bad Press ? Not enough Traction on Another NFL Related Black Eye ? … Idiot …

Anthony Stratton

Just a reminder, we still have some opening in the community draft….

If I participated, I’d intentionally sabotage a team (especially AFC) for gits n shiggles. I better not.

Anthony Stratton

I mean…you read the “example of a write-up” I provided…right?

I only focus on the chiefs. I know the divison a bit. But, im chit outside the division. What I would like to see are mock drafts with trades….reasonable trades…not a 6th to jump up to 3rd overall. And just focus on the chiefs with that.

Good choice.

I swear if the Chiefs bring in Suh and hire him I’ll boycott the whole season … the guy’s a POS as a human and has no business being on the field … stomping on guys on the ground is NOT something that should ever have been tolerated, and in the past he should have been summarily suspended as opposed to just fined

as a player he’s a scumbag …

Anthony Stratton

Hmmm…feels like he hasn’t had many issues as of late, but regardless that seems like the kind of thing that wouldn’t fly with Reid.

I think his behavior was more Jim Schwartz philosophy. He wasn’t dirty in college or really since the coach was fired.

Tarkus

So how do you feel about Vontaze Burfict?

I like the new format because I get a broader range of subjects. I am not a twitterer so I can survey the field here and dig into subjects that interest me. The scrolling down is not a problem imo.

Notice the NFL hasn’t punished Bobby “need a small helping hand” Kraft.

KCChef

Prolly won’t until the Legalese settles … : (

Anthony Stratton

Probably never will, IMO. At least, never give him any significant punishment.

If this was a player, all other circumstances the same, I wonder what would have happened?

Tarkus

Has there been players punished for solicitation? I can’t think of any off hand (no pun intended).

Anthony Stratton

Not active players…that I can think of. Warren Sapp worked for NFLN and was fired immediately tho…

Tarkus

Sapp was also charged with two counts of assault.

Eugene Robinson was busted for solicitation the night before the Super Bowl and I don’t believe he was ever punished. If he was, it was a simple fine, because he started all 16 games the following year for the Falcons.

Anthony Stratton

Yeah, but that was before the internet was invented.

venturachief

“Ironically, on the morning of the day Robinson was arrested for the incident, he had received the Bart Starr Award for his “high moral character.” I guess he was just looking for someone to celebrate with.

CHIEFSandSABRES

He was “illegally videotaped!” Of all the defenses, they actually chose that one!

BoJest
BoJest

I think he has a good case with the illegally videotaping. They can’t prove he had sex just by taping the front of the business. A tape of him only proves he was paying for something…as in a massage. If they tape the actual room then they were taping all the innocent people getting undress and dressing after the massage. I would think that would be an “invasion of privacy”. That’s like saying….” we heard someone is having sex in a bathroom stall for money so we’re going to tape it” and tape everyone using the stool. Not sure how legal either would be.

WaywerdSon
WaywerdSon

thats an interesting legal argument, but they would have had to have a probable cause warrant to install the cameras so a judge has signed off on it somewhere along the way

tsv0728

Exactly. Unless they didn’t have a warrant, which is supremely unlikely, I dont see what he is going for.

The old tweeties format was more eye popping and I actually read them. The new format isn’t as fun and I’ll probably just go to twitter, personally. I’m cool with whatever you decide though… you’re the one doing this every morning.

Need Seth to explain that to me. Surely it isn’t illegal for the police to video/audio record you during an investigation…even in Florida? I mean, I like the sound of Liberty and all, I just find it VERY unlikely.

Anthony Stratton

I’d have to imagine the police can record investigations.

If I had to guess there’s some sort of “expectation of privacy” clause tho…like you can’t put cameras in a bathroom or dressing room…or someplace you’d expect privacy. Just a guess.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Took me awhile to get to the comments section. Tried to scroll past the tweets, but the tweets kept scrolling!!!!!

KC_SunDevil
KC_SunDevil

Good morning. I’m still out on the road enjoying vacation

I love the scrolling tweets … with one issue that makes an absolute dealbreaker: this will severely curtail comments unless there’s a jump to the comments option.

BoJest
BoJest

Just move the pointer to the side and scroll down. I”m not a tweet-type person so seldom read them. Might give them a glance but that’s about it.

Mitko

You unfortunately have to scroll through all on mobile which is my primary method of usage

Daniel Harms

Well there could be something in the works to help with that.

Anthony Stratton

Tease!

Anthony Stratton

A jump to comments button should be doable. If you see the red up Arrow to the right, the Wizard bastardized that to “jump to top”….I think it might have originally been a scroll down function.

irafreak

Not to mention that these curved edge phones make it more difficult to scroll using the side bar.

Ah yes, the one thing as boring as listening to people’s endless variations of mock drafts.

I hate mock drafts and rarely ever read them.
