Chiefs news for 13 May 2019
Per Over The Cap, if Peterson were to be traded, the Chiefs would pay him less than $11 million next season and $12.5 million the next season. These are both numbers that the Chiefs can afford, but a trade makes more sense when you consider their roster build.
Currently, the Chiefs are set to start Bashaud Breeland and Charvarius Ward at outside cornerback. For a team that has done plenty of work to build a defense to keep Patrick Mahomes off the field, the pass coverage unit still looks shoddy. Peterson would be the upgrade they desperately need.
Peterson would also join former Cardinals teammates in Kansas City, specifically Tyrann Mathieu, Alex Okafor, and Xavier Williams. If the star cornerback wants to be comfortable and compete outside of Arizona, the Chiefs are the solution to do both.
The linebacker class looks to be a little stronger than the 2019 class, but that could change depending on which underclassmen decide to declare. It’s one to keep an eye on for the Chiefs given the likely departure of several starting linebackers.
The 2020 cornerback class could have two top-10 selections in Virginia’s Bryce Hall and LSU’s Kristian Fulton. Obviously that’s a spot the Chiefs have really failed to address with a high draft pick since they traded away Marcus Peters. There should be good depth to this class throughout so the Chiefs could likely get good value in the later half of the first round or the second round.
Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
That’s it. Patrick Mahomes is the only player at his position in the first tier, and may turn out to be the best quarterback in the history of fantasy football if he keeps doing what he did last year. Though it’s typically not wise to draft a quarterback in the first few rounds, he may represent a viable exception.
Several of Dieter’s teammates joined in on the festivities, and plenty of them stayed for the reception. Demarcus Robinson was spotted dancing. Former Chiefs receiver Chris Conley was there. Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce also showed up to the wedding and they enjoyed themselves quite a bit.
Mahomes, Kelce and Dieter are good friends and are often spotted doing things around the Kansas City area together. At the wedding, Kelce’s girlfriend, Kayla Nicole, captured Kelce and Mahomes messing around during Dieter’s first dance with his wife. You’ll find Kelce and Mahomes swaying along to the music.

The “Play60” patch is one of three badges the Chiefs offer to local scouts covering a wide-range of interests – from the Arrowhead Art Collection to the annual “Arrowhead Takeover” event that invites hundreds of Girl Scouts to the stadium every year.
Each patch represents a fun way for Scouts to get involved with the Chiefs – who are one of only a few teams in the NFL to offer an official patch program – and Wednesday’s visit certainly demonstrated just that.
“It was awesome,” Ragland said. “I think everybody had a good time – dancing in front of the green screen and learning a bunch of facts about the body. I know when I was a kid, we played all day. It’s important to just get out there and play with your friends.”
