Chiefs news for 25 March 2019Embed from Getty Images
“Taken 26th overall in the 2011 draft after a nice career at Pitt, Baldwin missed his first preseason after a wrist injury suffered in a locker room fight with teammate Thomas Jones. He caught just 41 passes for 579 yards and two touchdowns with the Chiefs before he was traded to the 49ers for wide receiver A.J. Jenkins — the rare high-profile football move that did nothing for either team. Baldwin caught three passes for 28 yards for San Francisco in 2013 and was waived in August 2014. He failed a physical with the Lions, and that was that.”
The Chiefs’ proposal to adjust overtime to ensure that both teams get a possession even if the first team to possess the ball scores a touchdown absolutely should be adopted. Two of the last three seasons have seen the Patriots win a coin toss in a championship-level game, drive the length of the field, score a touchdown, and walk off a winner — while the current league MVP (Matt Ryan in 2016 and Patrick Mahomes in 2018) — had to sit and watch it all happen.
Zach Allen DE Boston College
The Chiefs sent a contingent of coaches to the Boston College pro day. Defensive line coach Brendan Daly went to BC specifically to work out defensive end Zach Allen. Allen stood on his numbers from the combine, but was available for on-field workouts and interviews with multiple teams. It appears the Chiefs are taking great interest in guys who project as both DT/DE combinations in the NFL.
“I wish them the best of luck. These are three guys that helped build what we are today. They taught these young guys the right way of doing things. And so I’ll be forever grateful them, plus they’re good guys.”
The impact that Houston, Ford, and Berry had on the Chiefs’ roster won’t be easily forgotten. Young players like Breeland Speaks, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Eric Murray, Jordan Lucas, and Daniel Sorensen have all seen how the recently departed stars prepare and work. They’ll have to step up in the absence of these former Chiefs greats.
