Chiefs news for 24 March 2019Embed from Getty Images
“That’s the name of this game right now,” Reid told NFL Network’s Steve Wyche on Saturday in a one-on-one sitdown. “I mean, the NFL now … it’s hard to hold on to players for as long as you’d like to. I mean these are three of my favorite guys and good football players who can still do this thing. But, you have this influx of young guys, you have this whole salary cap thing that you’ve got to try to juggle. You have to be half-a-genius to put this thing together and make it sustained.”
Sterling has actually been with the Chiefs before as a practice squad player in 2017, but the New York Jets signed him away. He’s been with the Jets for the last two years after spending two years with the Jacksonville Jaguars as well. As a fullback/tight end option, Sterling played in 35 career games with both franchises. He has no career rushing attempts, but he’s caught 24 passes for 239 yards.
Darius Stewart FS Denver Broncos
The Chiefs need to continue adding bodies and creating competition in their secondary. Darian Stewart was drafted by the Rams when Steve Spagnuolo was head coach. He could help install a new system during the offseason at the very least.
As of Saturday, March 23rd the Chiefs have officially signed five players since the start of free agency. On top of that they’ve made the decision to retain one of their own. They’ve also released, traded, and let several players leave to join other teams. Below you’ll find our signing and departure trackers updated with the very latest information. We’ll continue to keep you updated as the Chiefs make more moves throughout the course of free agency.
Morning Bowl of (T)Weeties:
As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to try a new way of delivering tweets that would not only provide more information but also help me get the Huddle out quicker each morning. I asked you to provide feedback on what you thought and I’ve read through all of the comments. A lot of people weren’t fans of the scrolling tweets and it seemed that the majority of that was because it was difficult to scroll past and some didn’t like the side by side scrolling tweets (on desktop). Today I’ve provided just one scrolling section of tweets (AG’s timeline) and one section of non-scrolling tweets from @Rapsheet’s timeline as examples. I believe I have a fix for the scrolling issue as I’ve created “jump” sections that can get you to the tweets, to the comments, etc. Again, I appreciate any and all feedback as I will take it and use it to decide how to continue going forward. If everyone really hates the scrolling tweets, no problem – we can go back to the old version. I just want to offer you new and different ways to get your Chiefs/NFL fix each morning but it’s a process that I want you to be involved in. So again, I ask for you to leave feedback in the survey below, both good and bad, to help me give you the best product possible. Thanks!
