Chiefs news for 11 June 2019
Before some Chiefs fans insist that the news of an accidental broken arm mandates Hill’s immediate return to team activities, two key paragraphs from the WHB story need to be read and understood. They appear below.
“The investigation into the couple’s parenting accelerated when Overland Park police checked on the boy in March and found bruises and welts on his body,” the report explains. “Both Hill and Espinal have admitted to investigators that they spanked the three-year-old with their hands and a belt, but prosecutors can’t determine for sure which parent, or if both, went too far. In April Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe held a press conference to announce criminal charges wouldn’t be brought against Hill or Espinal but stated he believed a crime was committed against the boy and it was believed the crime was about the broken arm. It was not. Howe’s team has halted working on the case as they still can’t bring charges for bruising and harming the boy.”
Jordan then diminished what Mahomes and Brady did this past season. “We’re going to talk about how Pat Mahomes took an already playoff caliber team to another playoffs. Good job,” Jordan said. “We’re going to talk about Tom Brady, who’s been winning Super Bowls. I’d like to see Tom without Bill Belichick. I don’t know. Show me something.”
Prediction: Chiefs win, record 14-2.
While I’m underwhelmed by the idea of Blake Bell and Deon Yelder as the backup tight ends, it’s certainly possible that one of them could contribute 15 catches and 150 yards over the course of the season. That’s not exactly a high bar to hit. In fact, in 25 percent of Reid’s seasons as a head coach, his number two tight end didn’t even crack double digit receptions for the year and Reid has never had his second tight end top 30 receptions in a season.
As a matter of fact, the 27-year-old Williams has only carried the ball 183 times throughout his entire NFL career, a number he will likely surpass in 2019 alone.
Williams is not like Hunt and can’t really create for himself, so he will need Kansas City’s offense as a collective to make his job easier.
Still, the smart money is on Williams finishing with under 1,000 yards and averaging in the neighborhood of four to 4.5 yards per carry, which is absolutely fine in the Chiefs’ offense.
Production day is when the Chiefs get production photos and videos used for NFL or their own promotional materials. This is when they take headshots for roster photos, record those pregame player introduction videos and more.
The best part of production day is that we get some previews of the newest members of the team wearing full Chiefs gear for the first time.
