A Patrick Peterson trade to the Chiefs makes sense | Fansided

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 MathieuAlex 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.

What will the 2020 NFL draft look like for the Chiefs? | Chiefs Wire

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.

Fantasy football: 2019 early quarterback rankings | Fansided

Tier 1
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.

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce goof around at Gehrig Dieter’s wedding | Chiefs Wire

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.

Girl Scouts Earn “Play60” Patches Alongside the Chiefs’ Linebackers in the Sports Lab | The Mothership

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.”

Morning Bowl of (T)Weeties:

I cant remember the last time Chad Forbes/NFLDraftBites was right about anything.

His last big OBJ "report" said Beckham was being traded to the Rams. Beckham resigned with the Giants later that day.

I'd ignore this one.

I’m going to call “bitch, please” on the Aaron Rodgers cameo.

Anthony Stratton

I like when cameo’s are done like that, rather than “look at me” crap like that did with that garbage box Ed Sheehan last year.

Deadpool 2 showed the world how to do cameo’s.

I liked Sheeran’s better. His cameo had a purpose. Arya was always going to come across that band of Lannister soldiers, being drawn in by the song. Who better to sing it than him?

Lol you know the funny thing, is by that point I was so seething with the way the story was being handled that I missed that.

The Chiefs didn’t trade for PP last season. Idk why they would do it now, unless the price has been drastically reduced; like a furniture store going out of business reduced. Veach has been making the roster younger, so i will be surprised if this trade materializes.

Tarkus

Maybe he wasn’t available last season, but is now.

Seth’s joker quote is spot on.

Thrones spoilers inside

Spoiler
Weird. Dany seemed like she was having the best day of her life. When the bell’s rang she finally had what she always wanted…and thats the moment she snapped?

Leaf
Leaf

I know. I think what they were trying to convey was

Spoiler
it had become personal. It wasn’t enough to just win anymore and it wasn’t until that moment when they were asking for mercy that she realized that she wouldn’t be satisfied until they all burned.

Anthony Stratton

Still didn’t work for me…

Spoiler
They got a lotta ‘splainin away to do to make that work IMO. I kinda hope that all the “good queen” stuff in the past was just an act trying to amass enough followers to basically destroy king’s landing as revenge for her dad…ie she never gave a shit about ruling. But that wouldn’t hold up against past storylines.

I think when Jon turned her away and she said “rule with fear then” or whatever she realized she had to come in hot like her ancestors. Maybe she was sitting on that wall realizing she won, but then started to remember no one would really give a shit, and then she slowly realized she had to make them all think she was a monster. Cool story if she did something she really disagreed with in an effort to pull the kingdom together in fear of her knowing they’d never love her.

But I doubt they give us that either…she prolly just “mad queen snapped” is what I’m guessing they give us.

Leaf
Leaf

Yeah I agree it’s a weak ass explanation. And I seriously doubt they are going to somehow make it feel right in only one more episode.

Spoiler
I’ve seen plenty of people claiming that her madness was foreshadowed because of she wanted to crucify the Masters and talked of burning the slaver cities down. To me that was her cruel form of justice and acceptable collateral damage to rid the world of evil. But she didn’t burn the cities down because in the end she doesn’t kill the undeserving unnecessarily. I could she her, in a fit of rage for her dragon and friend, burning the city to get to Cersei. But burning everyone just because after they surrendered? That’s not her, or at least not the way they have portrayed her up until last night.

Anthony Stratton

Agreed.

Spoiler
Could have easily been understandable if they kept Rhaegon (dragon #2) around and during the sack on King’s Landing just as the bells begin to ring a stray spear from a missed scorpion takes him down…that would at least give her a valid tipping point for murdering those “she’s sworn to protect” after knowing she had already won the war…seems like such a better way to have written that. So hopefully this absurdity was intentional and we’ll find out why next week.

And then as she’s about to execute Jon and Tyrion a bolt flies through her chest as Bronn comes from out of the shadows demanding his fucking castle…

MasterChief
MasterChief

That 2nd paragraph about Bronn… you may have something there! I forgot about him!

Leaf

The sad thing for him is he’s hedged his bets well for survival, but I don’t think he’s going to get all that extra that he’s hoping for. He might even be out some when the dust settles.

Anthony Stratton

Nope, don’t be sleeping on Bronn getting his bloody castle…

Spoiler
He said “my fighting days are done, but I still have a few killing days left”

He gone kill somebody with that crossbow.

Leaf
Leaf

Yeah there are some many ways they could have done things better. But I’m not sold on the Bron thing.

Spoiler
I have a feeling that the show is setting Arya up as the prince who was promised, who “is the song of ice and fire”. She’s saved the world from ice by killing the Night King, and now had one ep to save the world from fire by killing Danny.

For a team that has done plenty of work to build a defense to keep Patrick Mahomes off the field

Pretty sure the goal is for the defense to keep Mahomes ON the field

That’s a tall order for any defense, considering how quickly Patrick can light up an opposing defense 😁

Unless it’s because our defense was only on the field to say ole, as the opposing team marches past to score right away.

Currently, the Chiefs are set to start Bashaud Breeland and Charvarius Ward at outside cornerback.

Also, I’m fairly certain Fuller is technically the starting CB with Breeland. Maybe he ends up shifting inside when 3+ CBs are on the field, but that doesn’t negate the insistence from Reid & Co. last year that Fuller is not just a slot corner.

Anthony Stratton

Agreed.

Tarkus

Yes, ala Brandon Flowers there at the end.

ChiefJerky
ChiefJerky

We’re probably going to be in the nickel 70% of the time give or take, so I would say all three are basically starters. I think of Ward as more of a starter than whoever’s playing SAM linebacker, unless we manage to add another really good linebacker, one who’s so good they’d hate to take him off the field.

Peterson Trade Isn’t Going To Happen, Just More Noise From The Media Trying To Earn A Paycheck, IMO The Chiefs Are Content With Who’s On The Roster. I’m Not Saying That If The Cards Said Hey We’ll Take A 3RD For PP That The VeachMeister Wouldn’t Jump All Over It But I’s Prolly Going To Be A Bidding War For His Services. He’s In His 3O’s And The Chiefs Are Paying To Go Younger. Pass On Peterson At Least Until We See Our DB’s In Action. One Thing Is For Sure They Can’t Reek As Bad As Last Years Outfit

I think this is 100% true – they like what we have, and want to coach it up (whether we like it or not).

QuackTastic
QuackTastic

So, is Bashaud our CB1? That’s a little scary. Ward is still a bit of an unknown. Fuller should stay in the slot. But man, not super comfortable with CB1/2. One injury to that group and we’re effed.

go_saleaumua

He did fine as CB 1 in WSH two & three years’ back…..what’s changed?

Well it can’t be 100% true, because Peterson isn’t in his 30s yet.

Does it take a 1st round pick to get Peterson?

QuackTastic
QuackTastic

I think they’re looking for more than just a first, honestly. First and a second or third. I mean, the guys an all pro corner. Theres alot of demand for that and the Cards aren’t desperate to get rid of him. So they’re in a good spot.

SCKSChief
SCKSChief

yeah, pass on that noise. If it was a 2nd and 4th or something, I’d be more inclined. I agree with the above post that KC will likely wait to see what their top 3-4 guys look like in action before making a decision like that. Honestly Breeland and Ward outside looks a lot better than what they trotted out last year…especially with Badger and Thornhill on the back end.

workingmansdead

They may not be desperate to get rid of him, but clearly nobody has given up what they wanted yet. So they’ll likely have to come down in price if they do move him.
